Install python in user space

Page last updated on: 2019-10-22

The Linux system always comes with at least one pre-installed Python but you will find that you might need a different version of Python or more modules that system Python offers.

Miniconda allows users to install custom version of Python at user space. Different users can have different Pythons installed without interfering each other or interfering the system Python.

Download and install miniconda

There are so many good Python IDEs. PyCharm Community version is an IDE I use for my Python projects.
