Matplotlib is an overall package for creating static, animated, and interactive visualizations in Python. It literally opens up a whole new world of possibilities for you! Especially when it is used with Numpy or Pandas library, one can do unimaginable things. The plots give may give a new insight altogether. Now, the question arises i.e. How to make it running on your computer? But a more primary question would be, what are its pre-requisites or as we call it, dependencies for the software to run on your computer?

Dependencies

We’re ready to get the Matplotlib on our system!

Setting up

On macOS

  • Install libpng and Freetype using brew:
    brew install libpng freetype pkg-config
  • In case you’re working on MacPorts, execute the following instead:
    port install libpng freetype pkgconfig
  • Now install matplotlib from the source using:
    python -mpip install 

On Linux
It’s the easiest to get it on Ubuntu since you can get all the dependencies by simply using the following command:

sudo apt-get build-dep python-matplotlib
