0:00 So let's review installing requests, we had already created a virtual environment,
0:04 but don't forget to activate it, so . (dot, space) the path activate on Windows,
0:11 you don't have to do the dot and this is just activate.batch.
0:14 So either way, our prompt will change
0:17 and then we'll have access to the packaging tools for that environment.
0:20 Then of course, we are going to do pip install requests,
0:23 that is going to download and install it
0:26 and then just to make sure you can make a quick pip list to see what you've got,
0:29 and here we can see that requests 2.13.0
0:32 that is the latest at the time of this recording
0:35 was successfully installed and ready to roll.
