Manim runs on Python 3.6 or higher (Python 3.8 is recommended).
System requirements are：
OpenGL (included in python package
LaTeX (optional, if you want to use LaTeX)
Pango (only for Linux)
# Install manimgl pip install manimgl # Try it out manimgl
If you want to hack on manimlib itself, clone this repository and in that directory execute:
# Install python requirements pip install -e . # Try it out manimgl example_scenes.py OpeningManimExample # or manim-render example_scenes.py OpeningManimExample
If you run the above command and no error message appears, then you have successfully installed all the environments required by manim.
Install FFmpeg, and make sure that its path is in the PATH environment variable.
Install a LaTeX distribution. TeXLive-full is recommended.
Install the remaining Python packages.
git clone https://github.com/3b1b/manim.git cd manim pip install -e . manimgl example_scenes.py OpeningManimExample
Install FFmpeg and LaTeX as above.
Create a conda environment using
git clone https://github.com/3b1b/manim.git cd manim conda create -n manim python=3.8 conda activate manim pip install -e .
