Target version:-


  • It seems that recent versions of matplotlib requires some "special" Python on MacOS

It is explained here

This was noticed during Bayreuth school on some MacOS + anaconda installations.
BornAgain scripts were crashing during matplotlib import. The solution was to use ~anaconda/bin/pythonW executable instead of ~anaconda/bin/python.
