I'm struggling to install fbprofhet library to my Python Anaconda.

https://facebook.github.io/prophet/docs/installation.html


When I do the following installs in Spyder IDE I gett error's:



conda install gcc

error:

Note: you may need to restart the kernel to use updated packages.
usage: conda-script.py [-h] [-V] command ...
conda-script.py: error: unrecognized arguments: gcc

error:

conda install PyStan

Note: you may need to restart the kernel to use updated packages.
usage: conda-script.py [-h] [-V] command ...
conda-script.py: error: unrecognized arguments: PyStan



conda install -c conda-forge fbprophet

error:

Note: you may need to restart the kernel to use updated packages.
usage: conda-script.py [-h] [-V] command ...
conda-script.py: error: unrecognized arguments: fbprophet


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

What happens if you try this from the command line?

pip install fbprophet

Open in new window

long error but I think this is the root cause

    WARNING:pystan:MSVC compiler is not supported
    error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 is required. Get it with "Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools": https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/

The error suggests...

1) This library will likely only compile + run on Windows, so for OSX + Linux, likely you'll get many failures.

2) You must have the specific "Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0" compiler installed, for compilation to work.

Once you satisfy these requirements, likely the code will build.

hi, if this could help:

The easiest way to install Prophet is through conda-forge: conda install -c conda-forge fbprophet.
