How To Install Python Package Numpy, Pandas, Scipy, Matplotlib On Windows, Mac And Linux

If you want to do data analysis in python, you always need to use python packages like Numpy, Pandas, Scipy and Matplotlib etc. All those python packages are so powerful and useful to do Base N-dimensional array computing( Numpy ), Data structures & analysis ( Pandas ), scientific computing ( Scipy) and Comprehensive 2D Plotting ( Matplotlib ). But the first step is to install the related packages on your OS, this article will tell you how to install it on Windows, Mac and Linux.

1. Install Numpy, Pandas, Scipy, Matplotlib With Anacond.

Anaconda is a python edition which is used in scientific area, so if you install anaconda, all above packages will be installed automatically. So please read article How To Install Anaconda On Linux, Windows, MacOS Correctly to install anaconda first.

After installation, you can run command conda in a terminal to list above packages to make sure it has been installed correctly.

  1. First make sure pip has been installed on your OS. If not installed please refer article How To Install Python/Pip On Windows.
    ~$ pip --version
    pip 18.1 from /home/zhaosong/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pip (python 3.7)
