Hello, I’m new to this forum and also just starting off with coding and I keep coming across the same problem over and over again.
As I started to learn Python, I decided to start learning by doing on my MacBook. I installed Python and also installed Atom since it was suggested to me. I followed a youtube tutorial for setting up Atom for Python and at one point I was supposed to install autopep8. However when I tried to install it using the line of code given in the Readme file (which was ‘pip install autopep8’), autopep8 could not be installed. My Terminal keeps returning this line: '-bash: pip: command not found’
This was also the case when trying to install further packages.
One more issue is that Atom seems to be using Python 2, which was pre installed on my computer. However, I would like to use Python 3 instead.
I’m very new to thisand will be really grateful for any good advice or detailed and easy to understand explanation of why this won’t work and how I can fix it.
I’ve been searching up and down the internet for the past week but couldn’t figure it out.
Thanks for your help
