word cloud is not supported for python version 3.7 & above

Sad but true !

Is there any other solution to install wordcloud or any other package works like wordcloud

Hey, @There,

Try these steps:

  • Download the .whl file compatible with your Python version and your windows distribution (32bit or 64bit) from here
  • cd to the file path
  • Run this command python -m pip install <filename>

I hope using these steps will resolve your problem and word cloud will get downloaded.

Do you explain what is in <filename>. I can't understand:)

Hi, @There,

The filenames encode the version, kind of distribution, and for binary wheels, the architecture and OS they are compatible with. 

the link seems to be broken. please provide another.
what file path? please explain me. I really do not know what to do

Hello @nurma,

  1. Download the .whl file compatible with your Python version and your windows distribution (32bit or 64bit) from here
  2. cd to the file path( go to the path where .whl file is located from cmd promt)
  3. Run this command:python -m pip install <filename>            (Here file name is the .whl file  name which you have downloaded at step-1)

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!

py -3.9 -m pip install wordcloud-1.8.1-cp39-cp39-win_amd64.whl
try this it will work

py -3.9 -m pip install wordcloud-1.8.1-cp39-cp39-win_amd64.whl

here -3.9 is your python version

this is your wordcloud file which u have to download seperatly -> wordcloud-1.8.1-cp39-cp39-win_amd64.whl

link for download-> https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#wordcloud

Hi@Prajwala,

First check your pip and python version from cmd.

C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>pip -V
pip 20.0.2 from C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter\anaconda3\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.7)
C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>python -V
Python 3.7.6

Then try to install wordcloud in your system.

C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>pip install wordcloud
