Get Emscripten Running on OS X 10.8
# Based on
# prerequisites
cd ~/
brew install node
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python2
curl > llvm.tgz
tar xzvf llvm.tgz
ln -s clang+llvm-3.2-x86_64-apple-darwin11 llvm
# emscripten
git clone git://
cd emscripten
LLVM=~/llvm/bin ./emcc
LLVM=~/llvm/bin ./emcc tests/hello_world.cpp -o hello.html
open hello.html

The end result here is the llvm folder living in your ~ dir? Is that a good idea? Additionally, thanks a ton because this worked flawlessly!

You can change your LLVM root in your ~/.emscipten file to

LLVM_ROOT = os.path.expanduser(os.getenv('LLVM') or '~/llvm/bin') # directory

in order to be able to call emscripten withouthaving to write LLVM= in front :)
