How to set up virtualenv for existing project

I have project that I created without using a virtual environment. The project has a live version that pulls from github. Now, I want to add a virtual environment to the project on my local computer.

So my question is that should I just create a virtualenv like I normaly would when I start a new project or are there some steps I need to take to ensure that no problems arise in the local server as well as the live server when I push my code. Thank you.

As long as you don’t have anything “PYTHONPATH”-specific within your project, it shouldn’t cause you any problems at all.
