Installing Packages

There are two three ways: pip, conda and within Jupyter Hub. If you are using Anaconda (Navigator), use conda. pip will install for all environments; conda will install for conda environment only. Put either of these codes in Terminal.

# using pip
python -m pip install <package>

# using conda
conda install <package>

If it is a one off use case (which it usually never is), use the following command.

!pip install <package>

Methods to Print

There are two methods: print() and pprint(). They both serve the save cause but pprint() is better at displaying complex data structures such as list of lists or JSON files.
