Preparing for installation on Mac OS/X

  1. Python and basic development tools

    Follow the installation instructions for Python on The Hitchhiker’s guide to Python.

    Here is the super-short summary:

    • Install Homebrew:

      /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
    • Install python:

      brew install python
    • Have some coffee.

  2. Additional necessary packages for a Reahl installation

    brew install libxml2 libxslt sqlite

    Next create a virtualenv.
