Creating a Virtual Environment

Generally when using Anaconda, they recommend you use their tool (conda) 
which works very well.  It kind of incorporates the functions of pip and 
virtualenv together.

If you already have the path to the anaconda python prepended to your 
path, the source...activate command shouldn't really be doing anything 
unless you specifically created an environment (using conda) named 
'anaconda' - but it would stowed under ~/anaconda3/envs/'...

Have you looked at the conda docs yet?

How to go from something local in an isolated virtual environment 
(whether created with virtualenv or conda) to something you can 
distribute is a separate question, which I can't really help much.
