Install Pyhton

Getting Started with Python

To get started working with Python 3, youโ€™ll need to have access to the Python interpreter (the console, and related tools and libraries). We can accomplish this in several ways:

  • Download the installer from the official download page.

  • Use a package manager like yum, apt on Linux systems

  • Homebrew for MacOS users.

  • Build Python from sources, a method used by super geeks.


Install Python on Windows

To install Python on our windows workstation, a few simple steps should be followed:

  • Navigate to the official download page, using a web browser

  • Select the installer that matches the OS (32b or 64b)

  • Execute the installer (using the default options, should be enough in most of the cases)

  • Test the installation by typing python -v in a terminal


Install Python on Linux

There is a very good chance your Linux distribution has Python installed already, but it probably wonโ€™t be the latest version, and it may be Python 2 instead of Python3. To check the installed versions, just type:

$ python --version
$ python3 --version


Install on CentOS

To install, you should first update your system with the yum package manager:

$ sudo yum install python36u
$ sudo yum install python36u-pip
