The best and recommended way to install Python modules is to use pip, the Python package manager.
If you have Python 2 >=2.7.9 or Python 3 >=3.4 installed from python.org, you will already have pip and setuptools, but will need to upgrade to the latest version:
On Linux or macOS:
pip install -U pip setuptools
python -m pip install -U pip setuptools
If you’re using a Python install on Linux that’s managed by the system package manager (e.g "yum", "apt-get" etc…), and you want to use the system package manager to install or upgrade pip, then see: https://packaging.python.org/guides/installing-using-linux-tools/
Download get-pip.py from https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py. Run python get-pip.py. This will install or upgrade pip.
Now you can use pip to install python packages. For example, To install the latest version of "SomeProject":
$ pip install 'SomeProject'
To install a specific version:
$ pip install 'SomeProject==1.4'
To install greater than or equal to one version and less than another:
$ pip install 'SomeProject>=1,<2'
