How to switch between python2 and python3 pip on Fedora 22?

As I have started to use Python 3.4, I need pip to maintain libraries on both Python 2.7 and Python 3.4.

How to select the appropriate pip quickly using terminal?

This question is NOT related to Virtualenv but with the default python2.7 and python3.4 that comes with Fedora 22 Workstation.

As a temporary fix, I am using PyCharm to manage libraries.


Fedora separates Python 2.x and 3.x's environments. yum install python-pip will give you an executable called pip which you can use for Python 2.x packages, and yum install python3-pip will give you an executable called pip3for managing Python 3.x packages.

You can install either, both or neither - they will not interfere with each other.
