An unofficial Mac binary is available from here:
- This may break existing installations of pytz and python-dateutil
(especially if those were installed by the matplotlib 1.2.1 Mac binary
installer). For safety, reinstall those after installing matplotlib.
- Like the Windows binaries, it does not include pytz, python-dateutil,
six or pyparsing. You will have to install those manually (e.g. with pip
- Much of the test code is missing, for unknown reasons. Thus I was not
able to run most of its unit tests.
So...use at your own risk. At this point I have no idea if or when there
will be an official Mac binary installer. I'm afraid I don't have time
to track down the issues right now.
