This would be very helpful. I haven’t been able to track down the
plot_directive bugs on windows, because I haven’t been able to build
the dependencies with any luck.

OK. I uploaded matplotlib-1.x-windows-link-libraries.zip at
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#matplotlib>.

That’s awesome. Thanks!

The archive contains zlib-1.2.5, libpng-1.4.8, and freetype-2.4.6 link
libraries and header files for the build systems listed below.

All other Python package dependencies can also be downloaded from that

page. Let me know if anything is missing.

A description on how to build Python 2.6+ extensions using the free
Windows SDK 7.0 is at
<http://wiki.cython.org/64BitCythonExtensionsOnWindows>. I have not

tested it with mpl though.

This is how I’ve been building python packages with extension on Windows if I need to, but I wouldn’t know how to build the dependencies. Can you recommend a good resource for doing so/learning to do so with SDK?

Now for MPL, I just dropped the msvcr90-x64 files into my matplotlib source directory because I got tired of messing with setupext.py to try to point to them. I receive the following error

c:\users\skipper\src\matplotlib\zconf.h(380) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'unistd.h': No such file or directory

error: Command “cl.exe /c /nologo /Ox /MD /W3 /GS- /DNDEBUG -DPY_ARRAY_UNIQUE_SYMBOL=MPL_ARRAY_API -DPYCXX_ISO_CPP_LIB=1 -I. -IC:\Python27\lib\site-packages\numpy\core\include -I. -IC:\Python27\include -IC:\Python27\PC /Tpsrc/_png.cpp /Fobuild\temp.win-amd64-2.7\Release\src/_png.obj” failed with exit status 2

Whole build log is here: http://pastebin.com/EfxYjMnL

Thanks,

Almost every library is different. Some require CMake, others scons, devenv, nmake, Perl... Refer to the readme or install files.

Now for MPL, I just dropped the msvcr90-x64 files into my matplotlib
source directory because I got tired of messing with setupext.py to try
to point to them.

Try adding the directory containing the lib and include files to the LIB and INCLUDE environment variables.

I receive the following error

Use an empty unistd.h file. I have added that to the zip file.

Right. Thanks. I got some ways there building zlib dependency with
nmake and/or vcbuild. They appear to be working at least.

Thanks, that did the trick. Working mpl from source on windows 7,
python 2.7, 64-bit.
