Python 3 Installation


Windows Users

To install Python 3.x, go to the Python home page, and download the latest Python 3 distribution for your operating system.

During the installation process, if there is a checkbox to add Python 3.x to your path, make sure it is checked before proceeding with the installation.

Linux Users

Raspberry Pi Raspbian Users

If your copy of Raspbian is using Python 3.7 or greater, you should be all set to proceed.

Ubuntu and Other Debian Based Linux Distributions

You may need to install pip3. To check, open a terminal and type:

which pip3

If a path to pip3 is not reported, you will need to install it.

Open a terminal window and type:

  sudo apt-get install pip3-python

You should then make sure you have the latest version by typing:

sudo pip3 install -U pip

For All Other Linux Distributions

Refer to your distribution's instructions.

Mac Users

  1. Install Python 3.7.x from or via homebrew
  2. Download from and install (this should already be installed if python was installed from or homebrew):
curl -O
sudo python3
