How to install python3 version of package via pip on Ubuntu?

I have both

python2.7
and
python3.2
installed in
Ubuntu 12.04
.

The symbolic link
python
links to
python2.7
.

When I type:

sudo pip install package-name


It will default install
python2
version of
package-name
.

Some package supports both
python2
and
python3
.

How to install
python3
version of
package-name
via
pip
?

Answer

You may want to build a virtualenv of python3, then install packages of python3 after activating the virtualenv. So your system won't be messed up :)

This could be something like:

virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 py3env
source py3env/bin/activate
pip install package-name
