Ubuntu - Install Supervisor

Supervisor is a system that allows its users to monitor and control a number of processes. I've seen a lot of users utilize to automatically restart a process if it ever crashes/stops. For full details of what it is capable of visit the official documentation.

Check Version

With the installation methods below, you can check your version of Supervisor with

supervisord --version  

Install from Ubuntu Package (recommended)

Installing through the ubuntu packages is somewhat safer and will probably safe you a lot of hassle with configuration files later.

sudo apt-get install supervisor

On Ubuntu 16.04 this should install version 3.2.0.

Install through Pip

Installing through the python package management tool (pip) will give you the latest stable version.

Install Pip if you haven't already and then execute:

sudo pip install supervisor  

You should get version 3.2.0.
