Following the latest source#

These are the instructions if you just want to follow the latest Matplotlib source, but you don't need to do any development for now.

The steps are:

Get the local copy of the code#

From the command line:

git clone

You now have a copy of the code tree in the new matplotlib directory.

Updating the code#

From time to time you may want to pull down the latest code. Do this with:

cd matplotlib
git pull

The tree in matplotlib will now have the latest changes from the initial repository.
