For easy install and use of python and libraries install Anaconda.
I struggled to install Python for several days and many other packages and it wasn\\\'t successful because I hadn\\\'t installed the service pack 1 update for Windows 7.
To install Anaconda go to the following website:
r -> y removes the output from notebook
after you downloaded and installed Anaconda, to update all the packages, open the windows command prompt and type:
conda update conda
conda update anaconda
conda update --all
Some R packages (not as useful as R)
conda install scikit-learn
A package to work with MS Excel
conda install openpyxl
After updating the size of anaconda folder was over 5.5 Gigabytes and I ran the following codes to clean it:
coda clean --tarballs
conda clean --packages
Also you can use the following IDEs to use python
pip install lxml pip install html5lib pip install BeautifulSoup4
