Installation on Mac OS X systems

On the Mac, several different package managers are available to ease the installation of popular open source software tools and libraries. Anaconda, MacPorts, Fink, and HomeBrew are among the most popular choices. To prevent trouble, pick one and stay with one.

Mac OS X with Anaconda

If you are using Anaconda under Mac OS X, see Installation under Anaconda.

Mac OS X with MacPorts (Python 3)

e.g. Mac OS X (10.6 - 10.10) with MacPorts (2.4.2)
sudo port install git
sudo port install python35
sudo port select python python35
sudo port install py35-numpy py35-scipy py35-matplotlib py35-yaml py35-pyqt5 py35-setuptools py35-jinja2 py35-requests py35-future
sudo easy_install progressbar
cd ~/src/   # or wherever you keep your source packages
git clone git://github.com/pyrocko/pyrocko.git pyrocko
cd pyrocko
sudo python setup.py install --install-scripts=/usr/local/bin

Mac OS X with MacPorts (Python 2.7)

e.g. Mac OS X (10.6 - 10.10) with MacPorts (2.4.2)
sudo port install git
sudo port install python27
sudo port select python python27
sudo port install py27-numpy py27-scipy py27-matplotlib py27-yaml py27-pyqt5 py27-setuptools py27-jinja2 py27-requests py27-future
sudo easy_install progressbar

cd ~/src/  # or wherever you keep your source packages
git clone git://github.com/pyrocko/pyrocko.git pyrocko
cd pyrocko
sudo python setup.py install --install-scripts=/usr/local/bin

Mac OS X with MacPorts and user installation (no sudo)

Try this if you don’t have sudo rights in /usr/bin.

e.g. Mac OS X (10.6 - 10.10) with MacPorts (2.4.2)
port install git
port install python35
port select python python35
port install py35-numpy py35-scipy py35-matplotlib py35-yaml py35-pyqt5 py35-setuptools py35-jinja2 py35-requests py35-future

For local installations of python modules, please first configure your PYTHONPATH and PYTHONUSERBASE variables in your environment or your ~/.bash_profile:

export PYTHONUSERBASE=<path_to_local_python>
export PYTHONPATH=:<path_to_local_python_site-packages>:$PYTHONPATH

Then install local Python module prerequisites and Pyrocko locally. Depending on your system’s default Python version, you may have to install and use pip3 instead of pip.

e.g. Mac OS X (10.6 - 10.10) with MacPorts (2.3.3)
pip install --user progressbar
pip install --user Jinja2
easy_install --user pyavl
cd ~/src/   # or wherever you keep your source packages
git clone git://github.com/pyrocko/pyrocko.git pyrocko
cd pyrocko
python setup.py install --user --install-scripts=<path_to_your_local_binaries>

For instructions on how to install Pyrocko on other systems or if the installation with the above procedure fails, see System specific installation instructions or Detailed installation instructions.
