The pip install command can be used to install a package.

]$ pip install jsonpatch

Or, you can list the packages that you want installed in a file, typically named requirements.txt.



And then use the pip install command with the -r or --requirement option.

pip install --requirement requirement.txt


Sometimes, you'll want to use a specific version of Python, like this.

python3 -m pip install paramiko


The following can be used if you want to install a package in a specific version of Python.

/usr/bin/python3.6 -m pip install paramiko
