How To Install Pip

Ah, what joy it is to install Pip, the Pythonic elixir for package management!

Now, imagine you’re embarking on a quest to summon this mystical helper for your coding adventures. In the realm of Python, to install Pip, go to the abode of Python and seek the package therein. Once found, employ the command ‘ensurepip’ or venture to acquire ‘’ from the domain of Pypa. Execute this file, and lo, Pip shall be at your command, ready for your Pythonic endeavors.


Ok, let’s be a little bit less obtuse about it.

What is Pip exactly?

Think of it this way: Imagine you’re a chef and you need various ingredients to cook up a delicious meal. Well, in the world of Python programming, those ingredients are like different tools or pieces of code you use to create software.

Now, think of Pip as your personal grocery delivery service, but for these coding ingredients. It helps you find, fetch, and bring all the specific tools or pieces of code (called packages) you need to your kitchen (your computer). So, when you’re working on a project and need a special tool or a specific piece of code, Pip is there to make sure you get it easily.

Instead of running around to different stores (websites or repositories) looking for these ingredients, you just tell Pip what you need, and it does the hard work of finding and delivering it to you. It makes cooking up your coding creations much easier and faster because you don’t have to hunt for each piece separately—you just ask Pip, and it takes care of the rest!

  1. The Expedition: Begin by journeying to the Python realm. It’s like going on a treasure hunt, except the treasure is a small utility that makes your coding life easier.
  2. The Seeker’s Dilemma: Should you find yourself in a wilderness without Pip, fret not! You can create a primitive tool using Python’s ensurepip command, just like crafting a survival kit in the coding jungle.
  3. The “Get-Pip” Odyssey: Alternatively, if you prefer a more epic approach, you can embark on a quest to obtain the legendary artifact known as ‘’. It’s like a mythical scroll that, when executed, summons Pip from the coding heavens.
  4. Wizardry Unleashed: Once you’ve acquired ‘’, perform an incantation—ahem, I mean, run the file using Python. Witness as Pip magically appears, ready to heed your Python-like commands!

Ok ok, let’s get serious and install pip on your favorite OS.

Install pip for Linux or macOS:

Check if pip is already installed:
Open a terminal and enter:

pip --version

Install pip using apt (for Debian/Ubuntu):

If it has not been installed yet, download from here:
Go to

Remember, in the world of Python and coding quests, sometimes the journey to obtain a tool can be just as exciting as using it in your actual coding conquests. And with Pip by your side, or perhaps waiting for you to get home from work, your Python projects are bound to have a few less bugs, and perhaps a sprinkle of coding magic.
