Python3.7 setup on Mac 10.14 (Mojave)
  1. Install Python 3.7.x from https://www.python.org/downloads/ or via homebrew.
$ brew install python3   # Installed at /usr/local/Cellar/python3

Check that python3 has been installed by running it at the terminal:

$ python3
>>> Python 3.7.2
  1. Download get-pip.py from https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py and install (this should already be installed if python was installed from python.org or homebrew):
$ curl -O https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
$ sudo python3 get-pip.py
  1. Install virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper
$ sudo -H pip3 install virtualenv
$ sudo -H pip3 install virtualenvwrapper --ignore-installed six
  1. Add the following to your ~/.bash_profile to load virtualenvwrapper then run bash -l
# Location of python virtual environments
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs

if [ -e /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh ]; then
  source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh
fi
  1. Create your virtual enviornment named py3
$ mkvirtualenv --python=`which python3` py3
/*
* To install all modules: pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Installing opencv with python3.7

$ brew update
$ brew install opencv@3 --with-python3   # Add --with-contrib if you want the contrib modules
$ ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/opencv/3.4.5/lib/python3.7/site-packages/cv2/python-3.7/cv2.cpython-37m-darwin.so /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/cv2.so

You may have to export PYTHONPATH:

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/Cellar/opencv/3.4.5/lib/python3.7/site-packages

If you installed a previous version of opencv and no longer need it, remove it:

brew cleanup opencv

Test:

$ python3
In[1]: import cv2
In[2]: cv2.__version__
Out[2]: '3.4.5'

Install these modules from Github as their py3 support is currently not published on PyPI. Their master branch works with Python3.7

Set your locale in an environment variable in ~/.bash_profile

export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Type bash -l in your terimal to run the updated bash_profile.
Now, install the modules:

$ pip3 install git+git://github.com/cython/cython@master
$ pip3 install git+git://github.com/statsmodels/statsmodels
$ pip3 install git+git://github.com/pymc-devs/pymc3
$ brew install llvm
$ brew link llvm --force
$ pip3 install numba

Test code from numba

Did you get this to work on MacOS Sierra? I cannot figure out this issue. I am pulling my hair!

I have the same as @nicemustard.
any solution?

And when running out of the Env and in python via commandline I get this.
When running any of the examples. Also the same after installing the pip installation. which was succesfully.

    from docopt import docopt
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'docopt'

I also pip install docopt but no succes.

I forgot to add that virtualenvwrapper needs to be enabled in your bash_profile. Ive added it as (4) in install-python3-6-pip3

Install Python 3.6.x from https://www.python.org/downloads/

Easier said than done. I'm running OSX 10.13.2, and I tried to install python3.6.4 from the tar file Python3.6.4.tgz. The README.rst file says:

Build Instructions

On Unix, Linux, BSD, macOS, and Cygwin::

./configure
make
make test
sudo make install

This will install Python as python3.

But the make test step (or the make step depending on the ./configure flags you use) hangs forever on a line that says test_asyncio. I filed a bug report.

@haijohn, you could brew install pyenv, and then pyenv install 3.6.5 for example.
