There are 2 ways to install: Python virtualenv or Conda Environment. Below is for Python venv:

  1. Create a python virtualenv

To activate the virtualenv
$ source <name_of_venv>/bin/activate

To deactivate:

  1. Install JupyterNotebook and others important pacakages inside the activated virtualenv
