Installing Python on Mac OS X — The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python

Interesting, as I thought Mac OS X Yosemite and up – having Python installed – would also keep Python up-to-date, but they don’t.
Installing Python on Mac OS X
The latest version of Mac OS X, Yosemite, comes with Python 2.7 out of the box.
The version of Python that ships with OS X is great for learning but it’s not good for development. The version shipped with OS X may be out of date from the official current Python release, which is considered the stable production version.
