# Compiling Scipy and Matplotlib again

Well, it's compile time again. Once again, I need to install scipy and matplotlib using homebrew and pip on Lion. It seems things have improved since I tried to compile last time! Well, it still does not work out of the box, but at least now it can be done without compiling by hand: (remember to brew install pkg-config gfortran first)

pip install -e git+https://github.com/scipy/scipy#egg=scipy-dev
pip install -e git+https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib#egg=matplotlib


I must say, this is still a mess. But at least, it is getting less bad.
