  • Completely free - including for commercial use and even redistribution
  • Cross platform on Linux, Windows, Mac
  • Installs into a single directory and doesn't affect other Python installations on your system. Doesn't require root or local administrator privileges
  • Stay up-to-date by easily updating packages from our free, online repository

  • Comes with tools to connect and integrate with Excel

Why Are We Just Giving This Away?

  • We want to ensure that Python, NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, IPython, Matplotlib, Numba, Blaze, Bokeh, and other great Python data analysis tools can be used everywhere.
  • We want to make it easier for Python evangelists and teachers to promote the use of Python.
  • We want to give back to the Python community that we love being a part of.
But all of this takes hard work and resources!
