Download Numpy For Python 2.7 Mac

Posted on

Install Numpy on Python 2.x version. If you are using Python 2.x, let’s say Python 2.7, then you will have to install the Numpy using the following command. In the terminal, use the pip command to install numpy package. Python -m pip install -U numpy. NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python. Gallery About Documentation Support About Anaconda, Inc. Download Anaconda. NumPy Installation on Mac. Now, let’s try NumPy installation on a Mac OS. It is always suggestible to install it on Python 3 itself. Use the pip3 command in order to install NumPy. The usage of pip3 command is to specify your system that you are working on a Python 3 version. The below image helps you in the installation process. Available packages. Download location.

How To Install Python Package Numpy, Pandas, Scipy, Matplotlib On Windows, Mac And Linux Jerry Zhao March 19, 2019 0 If you want to do data analysis in python, you always need to use python packages like Numpy, Pandas, Scipy and Matplotlib etc.

In this article, I will show you how to install Python 3 with NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib on macOS Catalina.

There is also a video version of this tutorial:

MacOS comes by default with Python 2.7 which, at this point, receives only bug fixes and will be EOL by 2020. Python 3.x is the future and it is supported by all major Python libraries. In this tutorial, we’ll use Python 3.8.

Start by installing the Command Line Tools for macOS. Please note, that you will need the Command Line Tools even if you’ve already installed Xcode. Open a Terminal and write:

For

Once the Command Line Tools are installed, we can install Python.

The official installer of Python is a pkg file that will start a GUI installer which will guide you through the installation. You can also check the video version of this tutorial if you want to see how I did it.

As a side note, you can have multiple Python 3 versions installed on your macOS machine. If this is the case, you can select which version you want to use by specifying the version number, e.g.:

or:

After the above, you can invoke Python 3.8 using the python3.8 command. python3 will also invoke the latest installer version of Python 3. This is what I see if I run python3.8 on my machine:

Next, let’s follow best practices and create a new Python environment in which we can install NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib:

At this point, your prompt should indicate that you are using the work environment. You can read more about Python environment in the documentation.

Once an environment is activated, all the install commands will apply only to the current environment. By default, if you close your Terminal, the environment is deactivated. If you want to be able to use it, use the source work/bin/activate command.

We can install NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib with:

As a side note, when you are in an active environment you can use the python command to invoke the Python interpreter, no need to use the version number.

Fire up Python, import scipy and print the version of the installed library. This is what I see on my machine:

Latest version of numpy

Let’s try something a bit more interesting now, let’s plot a simple function with Matplotlib. First, we’ll import SciPy and Matplotlib with:

Next, we can define some points on the (0, 1) interval with:

Now, let’s plot a parabola defined on the above interval:

You should see something like this:

As you’ve probably noticed, plt.show() is a blocking command. You won’t be able to use the interpreter until you close Figure 1.

There is also an interactive mode in which you can plot functions. Close Figure 1 and write:

This is what you should see:

At any point you can disable the interactive plot mode with:

after which you will need to use the plt.show() function in order to actually see the result of the plt.plot function.

If you want to learn more about Python and Matplotlib, I recommend reading Python Crash Course by Eric Matthes. The book is intended for beginners, but has a nice Data Visualization intro to Matplotlib chapter:

Another good Python book, for more advanced users, which also uses Matplotlib for some of the book projects is Python Playground by Mahesh Venkitachalam:
