plotnine can be can be installed in a couple of ways, depending on purpose.

To do any development you have to clone the plotnine source repository and install the package in development mode. These commands do all of that:
$ git clone https://github.com/has2k1/plotnine.git $ cd plotnine $ pip install -e .

$ pip install git+https://github.com/has2k1/plotnine.git
