Installing and getting started

To install the latest release of seaborn, you can use pip:

pip install seaborn

It’s also possible to install the released version using conda:

conda install seaborn

Alternatively, you can use pip to install the development version directly from github:

pip install git+

Another option would be to to clone the github repository and install from your local copy:

pip install .


  • Python 3.6+

Mandatory dependencies


Please report any bugs you encounter through the github issue tracker. It will be most helpful to include a reproducible example on synthetic data or one of the example datasets (accessed through load_dataset()). It is difficult to debug any issues without knowing the versions of seaborn and matplotlib you are using, as well as what matplotlib backend you are have active, so please include those in your bug report.
