Python 3.8.1 - Stopped at the Gate

I recently installed the latest version of Python and then went to connect Arduino. The commans is


$ install --PyFormata


According to my research, this was the first step. But no luck! The IDLE editor is unresponsive, behaving just like a text editor and I'm getting 'Syntax error: invalid syntax.'


Any ideas?

Hey! So Just to be clear, you have Python working? You can type python in the terminal and it shows v 3.8.1? 


Ae these issues coming from running python on the Arduino or on your computer locally?

I believe the command is:

pip install pyfirmata

as per this.
