Even if you are not into Python there comes a time when you end up with the need of having to install pip on your macOS or OSX based computer. Searching online would lead you to long tutorials which are not really what you need. All you have to do is run the following command.
sudo easy_install pip

Explanation#

MacOS comes with Python installed. But to make sure that you have Python installed open the terminal and run the following command.
python --version
If this command returns a version number that means Python exists. Which also means that you already have access to easy_install; considering you are using MacOS/OSX. ℹ Now, all you have to do is run the following command.
sudo easy_install pip
After thatpip will be installed and you’ll be able to use it for installing other packages. Let me know if you have any problems installing pip this way.
