What does hitch init do?ΒΆ

The “hitch init” command creates a Hitch directory in the current directory if one does not already exist. Inside this directory it installs a /glossary/virtualenv with the “hitchtest” package and dependencies, or, if a hitchreqs.txt is found, all of the packages specified in “hitchreqs.txt”

This virtualenv contains only the packages required to run tests. It does not contain the packages required to actually run your app. The tests themselves will take care of setting those up in a separate virtualenv.
