Make Python version xx as default
How to run a specific version of python with just ‘python’ instead of something like ‘python3.7’.
We’ll use version 3.7 in this example.
Check Python version
After you have python installed, check the version:
$ python3.7 -V
Make Python 3.7 the default python version
Check the path python3.7:
$ which python3.7 /usr/local/bin/python3.7
Create an alias for this path:
$ vim ~/.bashrc
Add the following alias to the file & save:
Check the python version again
$ python -V $ Python 3.7.0
Now we don’t have to type python3.7 everytime but just python.
