Python3 - How to Install AWS Boto3

Boto3 is the Amazon Web Service(AWS) software development Kit(SDK) for Python. Which allows Python developers to write software that makes user of services like Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2.

To install Boto3 with Python version 3.6, you need "pip" module. If you're running Python 2.7.9+ or Python 3.4+ (which is the case here), you should already have "pip" installed. You can simply test it:

$ python3 -m pip help

  /usr/local/opt/python/bin/python3.6 -m pip <command> [options]

  install                     Install packages.
  download                    Download packages.
  uninstall                   Uninstall packages.
  freeze                      Output installed packages in requirements format.
  list                        List installed packages.
  show                        Show information about installed packages.
  check                       Verify installed packages have compatible dependencies.
  search                      Search PyPI for packages.
  wheel                       Build wheels from your requirements.
  hash                        Compute hashes of package archives.
  completion                  A helper command used for command completion.
  help                        Show help for commands.

If you don't have "pip" already installed, you can install "pip" module by:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

$ sudo yum install python36-setuptools
$ sudo easy_install pip

Or the manual way:
# Download file (
# Then run the following:
$ python3

To install Boto3:
$ python3 -m pip install boto3
