Manim Installation

Manim Installation on MAC OS[edit | edit source]

Install Cairo

brew install cairo

Install ffmpeg:

brew install ffmpeg

To install LaTeX:

Note that MacTeX will require at least 4.5GB of hard disk space. This is due to the fact that it installs every LaTeX add-on package offered by CTAN. Only a few of these packages are required by Manim. If you would like a smaller LaTeX install which only contains the packages needed by Manim alone, consider installing BasicTeX with the instructions below. This will require only about 1.5GB of space. If you have installed MacTeX and are comfortable with it, do not install BasicTeX.

brew install --cask mactex

(Alternative) To install BasicTeX:

brew install --cask basictex
