Python Package Installer

Python Package Installer

Ubuntu (and more generally, linux) has great tools for installing packages. It turns out that python also has it own tool, the Python Package Installer (PIP). The PIP repositories are kept up-to-date all the time, where Ubuntu’s repositories may not necessarily have the most recent Python release.

To install PIP:

sudo apt-get install python-pip

To install a python package using pip:

sudo pip install PACKAGE_NAME
