Proper Setup of Py2App

Proper Setup of Py2App

This assumes you have a proper Framework'd Python installation.

brew install python --framework 

Install Qt v4.7.1

I've patched the Qt v4.7.1 installation process to remove libpng dependencies. Use this:

brew install https://gist.github.com/raw/519418/qt.rb --universal

If you are installing into a virtualenv, activate it now.

Build SIP for x86_64 and i386

curl -O http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/static/Downloads/sip4/sip-4.12.1.tar.gz
tar -xzvf sip-4.12.1.tar.gz && cd sip-4.12.1
python configure.py --arch=x86_64 --arch=i386
make -j
make install

Build PyQT4

curl -O http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/static/Downloads/PyQt4/PyQt-mac-gpl-4.8.3.tar.gz
tar -xzvf PyQt-mac-gpl-4.8.3.tar.gz && cd PyQt-mac-gpl-4.8.3
python configure.py -q /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.7.1/bin/qmake
make -j
make install

These steps followed by a simple:

$ python setup.py py2app --includes sip --packages PyQt4

Works perfectly :)

kenneth,

have you tried this with brew through-and-through? i,e. since brew info shows qt and pyqt are the appropriate versions...

@brantfaircloth I haven't had any luck installing Qt or PyQt vis homebrew. Most people have rather specific installations anyway (commercial licenses, etc)

I take that back, the forumla was updated and qt install went great.

PyQt, not so much though. The sip formula installs on system python #lesigh

kenneth - howdy! hope all is well.

one thing to note, i think, is that there may not be a need to add the --arch=ppc flag because brew install python --framework --universal only builds a two-way binary...

Hey man.

Actually, at the time, I had compiled python with --with-universal-archs=3-way so it did work, but it was usless since it was a binary that relied on 10.6 resources.

I don't do that anymore though. Qt took about 9 hours to cross compile on an i7 :)

@brantfaircloth: I don't do 3way anymore, since the modules don't run on 10.5 anyway ;)

hey kenneth,

the link to the patch in qt.rb above is no longer functioning and should be replaced by:

http://qt.gitorious.org/+qt-developers/qt/lighthouse/commit/9f18a1ad5ce32dd397642a4c03fa1fcb21fb9456?format=patch

I forked the gist, made the change and all appears to be working well... now just sitting here twiddling my thumbs as qt compiles.

well, things didn't turn out super-great... looks like Qt is still after the PNG dependency:

  "_png_read_end", referenced from:
  QPngHandlerPrivate::readPngImage(QImage*)       in qpnghandler.o
  ld: symbol(s) not found
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
