Python: Installing Python packages

Installing Python packages

$ pip install <package-name>
  • Packages are available in a public repository, from where anybody can download them and install them.
  • The official Python package repository is called PyPI, which stands for Python Package Index.
  • Installing a package from PyPI is very simple, because Python comes with a tool called pip that does this work.
