Python & mac OS

I’ve touched Python in extremely limited ways, over the last couple of years, and always been frustrated at the version-weirdness and my lack of understanding (”I have 2 and 3 on my machine already? Should I change from one to the other? Is this gonna get into bash shell stuff I’ve never really grokked?”)

Anyway this article, The right and wrong way to set Python 3 as default on a Mac, looked authoritative so I followed it, installed pyenv (equivalent to nvm in node-world, I gather), and got it working. Shout out to commenter Arturo Mascarinas for noting the extra space in the final command, which was indeed stopping me from crossing the finish line.
