pip is the replacement for the
easy_install python package management tool.
If you're running Python 2.7.9+ or Python 3.4+ pip is already installed in the bundle.
If you are below Python 2.7.9 then these are the steps you need to follow to install PIP.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get -y install python-pip
But, even if you are running python 3.4+ version, and pip is not available in the sytem, you can install by:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip
For Mac OS
$ sudo easy_install pip
$ brew install python
You can install pip via installer.
Download, pip-1.1.win32.exe and run setup.
Verify the pip setup
Check version of the pip via from command line.
$ sudo pip install some-package-name
Users can also easily remove the package:
$ sudo pip uninstall some-package-name
pip has a feature to manage full lists of packages and corresponding version numbers, possible through a "requirements" file. And is mainly used for
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
