Install python module

Python modules allow you to use code of others in your code. This saves you a lot of development time, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel each time.

There are thousands of modules available for Python, which save you time when developing. There are two ways to install Python modules: system wide and using a virtual environment. See Section 5-2 “Installing an installed module”. If you prefer installing them as single files (so there is no need either compilation or disassembly), then see Category 8.6 Modules. The instructions given here focus on systems and will apply if running python under UNIX platforms such that they can be used over Linux/UNix variants. For older operating environments it may still prove useful to remove any required libraries by adding ‘–with=libpython3’ option at configure, but this has been removed from most packages so developers should ignore these warnings unless their application does not benefit from Cython support anyway.. A major advantage of build in.

You can install modules or packages with the Python package manager (pip). To install a module system wide, open a terminal and use the pip command. If you type the code below it will install the module.

sudo pip install module-name
That will install a Python module automatically. Generally you do not install modules system wide, but use a virtual environment or venv.

In order for this to work, you need to have pip installed. The installation process depends on your platform. For example, if you are using Debian GNU/Linux: sudo aptitude update. Otherwise, please see installing all components by typing python setup_all in the top level directory of that distribution:
