What is PIP?

Pip is a package manager for Python, used to install and manage libraries and packages.

It allows users to install packages from the Python Package Index (PyPI) as well as other indexes, and enables easy upgrades and uninstalls of packages.

Pip makes it easier to distribute and manage code for your projects, as well as allowing you to use other people’s code in your own projects. With pip, you can install packages with a simple command, such as:

pip install <package_name>

And update or upgrade packages with:

pip install –upgrade <package name>

Pip makes it easier to manage dependencies and ensures that your projects have access to the necessary libraries, making it a critical tool for any Python developer.

Pip is included with Python distributions starting from version 2.7.9 and Python 3.4. However, if you have an older version of Python, you can download pip by following these steps:

  1. Download the get-pip.py script from https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/.
  2. Open a terminal or command prompt and navigate to the directory where you saved the script.
  3. Run the script using the following command:

python get-pip.py

This will install pip on your system and make it available in your Python environment. To verify that pip is installed, you can run the following command:

pip --version
