Updating Python and Installing Useful Packages

Installing PIP Package Manager

If you plan to use python (which you probably are) you will want to install pip to help with package managing. Most python packages can be installed with pip.

sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Installing Oh My ZSH (Bonus)

I also like to spice my terminal up to something with some color. This package Oh My ZSH is great open source update to the default terminal.

You can install it with the following commands.

sudo apt-get install zsh git
wget <https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/raw/master/tools/install.sh> -O - | zsh
chsh -s `which zsh`
