Xgboost Python Install Mac


XGBoost 101 In the previous article, we got introduced to XGBoost and learned about various reasons for its wide acceptance in Machine Learning Competition while finding out what resulted in. I have tried all possible solution I can find on web to install xgboost0.6a2 I have MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 I am trying in virtualenv having python 3.6 Here is result of pip command pip install.


Visit continuum.io and download theAnaconda Python distribution for your operating system (Windows/Mac OS/Linux).

Be sure to download the Python 3.X (where X is some number greater than or equal to 8) version, notthe 2.7 version.

Xgboost python install mac os

Make sure that during the installation Anacondais added to your environment/path.

On Mac OS and Linux, this should happen by default.

For Windows users, we recommend installing for “just me” instead of “all users”. Windows users will need to check the upper box when the page shown below appears (disregard the “not recommended” warning from Anaconda).

Downloading the QuantEcon Data Science Lectures¶

To download the QuantEcon Data Science lectures, go to its Github repo, click on theCode button.

You can download the lectures through either Github Desktop or Terminal:

Github Desktop (Mac/Windows only), recommended for most users.

  1. Install Github Desktop.

  2. Go to the Github repo.

  3. Click the “Open with Github Desktop” option in the Code button menu. It should open a GithubDesktop popup that looks like this:

    You should choose the path (folder) where you would like to download the repository. The default path onWindows should be C:/Users/YOUR_USERNAME/Documents/GitHub.


  1. Make sure that git is installed on your computer. (git is not installed on Windows by default. You can download and install it from here).

  2. Open a terminal.

  3. Set the path to where you would like to download the lectures. The default one is your home directory.

  4. Run gitclonehttps://github.com/QuantEcon/lecture-datascience.notebooks.git which willdownload the repository with notebooks in your working directory.

Package Management¶

Vscode Install

In addition to Jupyter, the Anaconda Python distribution comes with two package management tools conda and pip.

These will help you ensure that you have the right packages (think of these as “add-ons” to Pythonthat give you additional functionality… We will discuss these more in depth later!) and help youkeep them all up to date.

We will work through an example below to install some new package functionality needed for somelater lectures. Generally, packages can be installed by using condainstall<packagename> orpipinstall<packagename>.

Please install the packages you will need later by following the instructions below for yourcomputer’s operating system.


  • Open a terminal.

  • Run the following commands:

    Press y and enter whenever you see Proceed[y]/n from your terminal.

  • Close the terminal when the installation finishes.


  • Open a command prompt by pressing Windows + R to open the run box, type powershell, and pressEnter.

  • Run the following commands in order:

    Press y and enter whenever you see Proceed[y]/n from your terminal.

  • Close the command window after the installation finishes, log out of Windows, and then log in.

If you are told that you are missing a package at any point in time, we recommend trying to installthe package with conda first and, if that doesn’t work, installing with pip.

You can update a package by running:

  • condaupdate<packagename> for conda

  • pipinstall<packagename>--upgrade for pip

Note: If you have errors using graphviz on Windows, then open a powershell terminal and execute the following two lines:

Starting Jupyter¶

Start JupyterLab by following these steps:

  1. Open a new terminal (for Windows, you should use the Powershell: press Win + R and typepowershell in the run box, then hit enter).

  2. Type jupyterlab and press Enter.

If a web browser doesn’t open by default, look at the terminal text and find something that lookslike:

and copy/paste the line starting with http:// into your web browser.


The terminal you opened must stay open while you are editing the notebooks.

Pycharm Install

Opening a Jupyter Notebook¶


Once the web browser is open, you should see the JupyterLab dashboard. You can open a new Jupyternotebook by clicking Python 3 when you see something like the following image in your browser:

Xgboost Python Install Mac Software

Once the notebook is open, you should something similar to the following image:

Xgboost Python Install Mac Os

Xgboost Python Install Mac Version

Note that:

  • The filenames on the left will be different.

  • It should list the contents of your personal home directory (folder).
