pip: Package manager

pip is the package installer for Python. You can use pip to install packages from the Python Package Index and other indexes.

The packages pip installed could be a Python module or executable binaries.


Let's have a look at wikipedia module, installation:

pip install wikipedia

Then we create a Python script with:

import wikipedia
result = wikipedia.page("Macao Polytechnic Institute")

We can get:

Macao Polytechnic Institute (IPM; Chinese: 澳門理工學院; Portuguese: Instituto Politécnico de Macau) was established in 1981. It is located in the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. MPI is a public Higher education institution with an emphasis on applied knowledge and skills.
