Fastest way to install Python with SciPy Numpy Pandas Matplotlib in Ubuntu Linux

Fastest way to install Python with SciPy Numpy Pandas Matplotlib in Ubuntu Linux

Honestly all the other online tutorials I used were junk so I decided to create my own to help anyone out there using Ubuntu Linux.
All chosen tools were open source and free!

SUCCESS AS THIS WAS THE EASIEST PATH TO INSTALL. IT WAS ALSO THE FARTHEST I GOT WITH PYCHARM and IPYTHON QTCONSOLE!

Is this the magical line to get you started with Python SciPy on Ubuntu Linux?

Is this the magical line to get you started with Python SciPy on Ubuntu Linux?

See the video below to see it working:
*** This path has now been abandoned at my end. I have no futher confidence to continue with this. Enjoy Linux and Python lovers as I choose no longer to part of the party.

 

MORE UPDATES: So I replaced the VirtualBox junk with a real virtual environment called VMWare Workstatopm. What a difference so I am back to the positive. SEE

BELOW!

They may not like us any Windows as my previous attempts kind of went nowhere but Linux maybe the key. Who knew. DOn’t forget your VirtualBox for host Linux on your host.

I shall report back here if this works as instructed here:

http://www.scipy.org/install.html

sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib ipython ipython-notebook python-pandas python-sympy python-nose



Because of my continued successes here, I decided to install Sypder with:  https://pythonhosted.org/spyder/installation.html
  • Requirements: sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-sphinx
  • Installing: sudo pip install spyder
  • Updating: sudo pip install -U spyder

Finally run Anaconda with: http://askubuntu.com/questions/505919/installing-anaconda-python-on-ubuntu

wget http://09c8d0b2229f813c1b93-c95ac804525aac4b6dba79b00b39d1d3.r79.cf1.rackcdn.com/Anaconda-2.0.1-Linux-x86_64.sh

And after download is finished do:

bash Anaconda-2.0.1-Linux-x86_64.sh

 

Update: http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/

conda update conda
conda update anaconda

You can verify your Python modules packages by doing:  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3952513/python-get-available-modules

r outside of the interpreter with the pydoc tool: pydoc modules

ALl the steps above included pip for install of packages but no matplotlib or pandas. Let’s see…

This seems to work ok http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/install.html

conda install pandas

Somehow I got all the major packages installed including pandas, numpy, and matplotlib. Does this mean I am ready to go in Python?

A reason why Matlab is a smart choice over open source like Octave, R, Scilab, or Numpy/Scipy ?

One problem you may run into is getting the data you want if you need a specific type of data to be streamed in or data the be streamed in a specific way.

This is one reason why my argument open source is not the way to go if you learning about or quant or trading. It makes you counter-productive. If you are planning to get into an enterprise environment that pays, you need to use commercial products like Matlab. Use the real McCoy not a clone. From my Octave and R experience, I would never even consider those open source projects unless you can afford staffing to hack either to your needs for a production environment. Most real enterprise environment use commercial solutions like Microsoft or Matlab. There is no need to argue this as it a hard reality that open source people just don’t get. Upper management in paying environments need the professional support that only commercial products offer. Sorry, again that is the reality.
