How do I remove/delete a virtualenv?

The only way I can remove it seems to be: sudo rm -rf venv

That’s it! There is no command for deleting your virtual environment. Simply deactivate it and rid your application of its artifacts by recursively removing it.

Note that this is the same regardless of what kind of virtual environment you are using. virtualenvvenv, Anaconda environment, pyenvpipenv are all based the same principle here.
