Installing Python on OSX and LinuxΒΆ

Python3 is not generally pre-installed on OS X and may need to be installed for your Linux system. For Linux, it is preferable to use your system’s default package manager, such as yum or apt. If you are planning to use Anaconda (our recommendation), a system python is not required as python is installed as part of the Anaconda environment.
