Python Django Basics Say Hello to Django Installing Django

Someone knows how to update to Python 3 in Mac using Terminal?

I'm using OSX 10.11.4 with Python 2.7 preinstalled. I've installed PyCharm too. I want to install Django on my computer but I don't know how to do it.

So I don't exactly know how to install Django (sorry) but I do know how to install Python 3. To install Python 3 go to https://www.python.org/downloads/ and press the big "Install Python 3.5.1" (The version might be larger but don't worry) Hope that helps! ~xela888

Hi Xela,

Finally it works. I didn't realize that to run Python 3.5 you must type python3 instead of phyton. So it was impossible for me to install Django on Python 2.7

:D No problem!

Ah snap. No wonder I was getting version 2.7 as well. Thanks for figuring this out.
