How to install gunicorn + gevent on OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Given that I've spent a few hours to get it right, here is how I did it.

First install the required dependencies using Homebrew, by this I mean at least

brew install python libevent

Then upgrade setuptools with

curl -o - | python

this will prevent the egg_info error while installing gevent.

Finally, install the two packages

pip install gevent gunicorn

ignoring the

yield from self.wsgi.close()
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

error (due to some known issues with a Python 3 dependency not supported by Python 2).

Once done, a very minimal test that it is correctly installed is

echo -e 'def app():\n\tpass' >
gunicorn --log-level INFO --error-logfile - -k gevent app:app

that should output something like

[2014-11-18 11:00:52 +0100] [49167] [INFO] Starting gunicorn 19.1.1
[2014-11-18 11:00:52 +0100] [49167] [INFO] Listening at: (49167)
[2014-11-18 11:00:52 +0100] [49167] [INFO] Using worker: gevent
[2014-11-18 11:00:52 +0100] [49170] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 49170

the relevant part being that Using worker: gevent message.
