How do you get Matplotlib to work with Splunk SDK for Python

Splunk SDK for Python

I have been having fun with Python and generating tables and other text based outputs from Splunk but now want to generate charts and graphs. I've beating my head against the wall for two weeks trying to understand how to properly install Matplotlib and numpy. Everywhere I look I'm told to use pip but I can't find a version of pip to install that doesn't appear to require pip itself. I'm not in a position where I can build and compile the source code for pip, numpy, matplotlib or any other product.

All I want to know is how do I get graphing libraries installed that will work with the Splunk SKD for Python? Surely it can't be that hard but it does appear that the available information is obfuscated.

Have you tried Python for Scientific Computing Splunk app? I was also getting issue with numpy and pandas library but after installing this app and adding below two lines in my script it works like a charm.

import exec_anaconda
exec_anaconda.exec_anaconda()
