How to install Python 3 on Debian 9

What is python?

Python is a general purpose, high-level, object-oriented script and open source script developed in 1991 by von Hansen in Holland. The philosophy of creating it emphasizes the two main goals of the readability of the written and shortcomings and the relative efficiency of the program. The key words of the language are minimal and are vastly libraries which are in the hands of you (the user).

In most of the common programming languages, code blocks are defined in parenthesis. Python language uses the character spacing and forwarding of the program to specify blocks of code. This means that there are a number of identical spacing characters in the beginning of each block's lines, and this number increases in the inner code blocks. This way blocks of code are automatically organized.

Well, so far, with this Python definition we will be working with you to install Python 3.6 in Debian 9 with our tutorial.

Note: Note that all commands will be entered with root access, and if you do not have root access, you must execute the commands from the Sudo group and enter the sudo command before all commands.

Tutorial on installing Python 3.6 in Debian 9

1. First, type the following command to update the Debian repositories and packages.

apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

2. After complete updates, install the following commands in order to install Python 3.6.

apt-get install -y do build-essential libssl-dev zlib1g-dev
apt-get install -y libbz2-dev libreadline-dev libsqlite3-dev wget curl llvm
apt-get install -y libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev xz-utils tk-dev

3. Now import the Python package by downloading it from its official site.

wget https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.6.4/Python-3.6.4.tgz

4. After downloading, remove it from the compressed state.

tar xvf Python 3.6.4.tgz

5. After extracting the compressed file, enter the following command to go to the Python directory.

cd Python 3.6.4

6. Now it's time to import the following command so that Python is ready to be installed.

./configure --enable-optimizations

7. Finally, enter the following command to install Python.

make altinstall

You have successfully installed Python directly from its official site.
We hope this tutorial helped you in starting your journey with Python.
