Setting up pyenv on Mac

Install Python and pyenv in MAC.

install homebrew if dont have it.

brew install zlib
brew install python # (to get system level python3; this step is optional)
brew install pyenv
pyenv install 3.7.0  # (to get shimmed python3)
pyenv versions
pyenv global 3.7.0
python --version  # (should say 3.7.0)

Add python to my bash profile

echo 'export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zshrc
