PyPI stands for Python Package Index and is a central repository for maintaining Python packages that have been developed and shared by the Python community. It can be pronounced "pie pee eye" or "pie pie", but certainly not "pie pee" or "pee pee".

To install packages from PyPI, most developers use a program called pip. Pip allows user to easily install, upgrade, and remove Python packages.
