Installing Python and Pip

If you are using MacOS and have Homebrew installed, you can first check if Python is installed already:

For Python 2: $ python -V

For Python 3: $ python3 -V

Python 2 and 3 have some big differences. I would recommend using the latest version for your projects if you are starting clean.

If you DON’T have Python already installed on your Mac, use Homebrew to install it:

brew install python

Python has their own package manager called pip. To install pip,

sudo easy_install pip

Now you can install dependencies for your project like the Requests module for making HTTP requests.
