Background

pip is a package management system used to install and manage software packages written in Python. It can be used to install any of the many packages found in the Python Package Index (PyPI).

One major advantage of pip is the ease of its command-line interface, which makes installing Python software packages as easy as issuing one command.

NB: Python 2.7.9 and later (on the python2 series), and Python 3.4 and later include pip (pip3 for Python 3) by default.
