I’m an absolute beginner with coding and Python. I am trying to use Tweepy so that I can download Tweets from the Twitter API. This requires ‘pip’ for installation. I have downloaded Python 3.10.4 from the .org website (but in the error message below it looks like 2.7 is being used somehow).
I open the Terminal to run the
pip install tweepy command, but get told that the pip command is not recognised:
Last login: Tue Apr 5 14:20:47 on ttys007 Meddles-MacBook-Pro-2:~ meddle$ pip install tweepy -bash: pip: command not found Meddles-MacBook-Pro-2:~ meddle$
In order to make sure pip is installed, I therefore run
ensurepip, but I get the following error message:
Does anybody know where I am going wrong?
I thought it might have to do with being on my library wifi but I get the same result using hotspot.
Many thanks and much love,
