Latest Installation Notes

Install & update to latest version of Python:

The Following Were Previous Notes I Had on PIP/Python

Install or upgrade pip, securely download

Then run the following:

sudo python

If setuptools (or distribute) is not already installed, will install for you.

Upgrade pip

pip install -U pip

One of the reasons I had to recently use pip was to install boto, which was needed for the AWS Elastic Beanstalk CLI. To complete that dependency I had to finish up by installing boto using sudo as shown below.

sudo install boto

Pretty simple, albeit odd if you’ve no idea why there are these dependencies.
