In this post we will install a new version of Python that you can use for development APIs, websites, web apps, and other applications with Python.
You may ask why we need to install Python since Mac OS X comes with a preinstalled version of Python. Simply stated, the preinstalled version of Python is not ideal for development.
cd curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install ruby install rm install
brew install python which python # expected output: /usr/local/bin/python python --version # expected output: 2.7.9 # Upgrade pip sudo pip install --upgrade pip
