MacOS comes with Python pre-installed. But it’s Python Version 2.7, which is now deprecated (abandoned by the Python developer community). The entire Python community has now moved on to using Python 3. x (the current version as of writing this is 3.9).
Mac OS X comes with Python 2.7 out of the box. You do not need to install or configure anything else to use Python 2. These instructions document the installation of Python 3. The version of Python that ships with OS X is great for learning, but it’s not good for development.
The Python3 command was introduced because the python command pointed to python2. Since then, Python3 has become the default and thus python points to python3 on most but not all systems. So, most developers explicitly use python2 and python3 as to not run into issues on other systems.
If you are using Linux, add the following into into ~/. bashrc alias python=python3 Restart the shell and type python and python3 should start instead of python2.
