Install TA-Lib

Install the source file first

If there is not TA-Lib on the server, there will be error when directly install from pip. Just like this:

talib/common.c:242:10: fatal error: 'ta-lib/ta_defs.h' file not found
    #include "ta-lib/ta_defs.h"
    1 error generated.
    error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

The solution is to install the source file in the Linux first, and then use the pip to install it to python environment.

# Download the source file and unzip it
tar -xzf ta-lib-0.4.0-src.tar.gz
cd ta-lib

# Install the source file
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

Install the python package via pip

pip install ta-lib

In python, simply import the package:

import talib
