I recently set up my machine to do some Python programming, and ran in a couple of issues. Minor, but annoying. Here is how I worked it out. This is for Mac Intel, OSX 10.5.8 (Leopard).
- Updated Python to 2.6 ( I had 2.5)
- Downloaded Eclipse from here:
- Used this video tutorial to set up eclipse. FIRST CAVEAT: The path to pydev mentioned in the videois outdated. The repository now is at: http://pydev.org/updates
- Got additional libraries:
SECOND CAVEAT: There is an issue with numpy 1.4 and python 2.6 (also 2.5 for some), so I installed numpy 1.3:
This seems to work ok so far..
