steem-python requires Python 3.5 or higher. We don’t recommend usage of Python that ships with OS. If you’re just looking for a quick and easy cross-platform solution, feel free to install Python 3.x via easy to use Anaconda installer.
Afterwards, you can install steem-python with pip:
$ pip install steem
You can also perform the installation manually using setup.py:
$ git clone https://github.com/steemit/steem-python $ cd steem-python $ make install
