Install Python

  1. You will propably need the GIS features of Eden. Before you proceed install the GDAL framework
  1. You also need to install some modules of python
    STATIC_DEPS=true sudo easy_install lxml
    sudo easy_install shapely
    sudo easy_install reportlab
    sudo easy_install xlwt
    sudo easy_install pyserial
    sudo easy_install tweepy

3.In case you want to use PostgreSQL - PostGIS (I assume you already installed the spatial modules before)

Install the one clickInstaller sponsored by EnterpriseDB PostgreSQL and select also installation of postgis. Then based on this article install the python database driver

sudo easy_install pip
PATH=$PATH:/Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/bin/ sudo pip install psycopg2
defaults write Prefer-32-Bit -bool yes

without the last you will not be able to see available the PostgreSQL driver when web2py launch


  • lxml can give trouble on OS X. Try:
    • STATIC_DEPS=true sudo easy_install lxml (adapted from this blog post)
    • remove other libxml2 versions, such as may have been installed by fink or MacPorts - ONLY works in unmodified python setup. In case you have modified your python you must link some how the python directory with /frameworks/python otherwise lxml will not being found(not tested)
