I'm starting a new web project and taking the opportunity to evaluate Django/Python on FreeBSD.

First, let's see if python is already installed

$ pkg info | grep python

python36-3.6.8_2               Interpreted object-oriented programming language
python

[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible FreeBSD Clang 6.0.1 (tags/RELEASE_601/final 335540)] on freebsd12
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
