Installation of PyBrain from Source (Mac, Long Version)

This long version takes you all the way through installing the latest version of python, ipython, NumPy, and SciPy... Hopefully this is not necessary for you to do and you can skip to the PyBrain part. If it is, well, bite the bullet and go for it!

  • Download and install the latest version of Python (2.7+) via that .dmg from the website
  • Download ipython if you please...
  • The complete instructions are here to install NumPy and SciPy. Note: I successfully compiled with g++ 4.2, you can probably ignore the instructions to symbolic link to g++-4.0 on OSX 10.6
  • Download and install the gfortran .dmg
  • Download the NumPy source file and install manually:
       tar xvzf numpy-1.6.x.tgz
       cd numpy-1.6.x
       sudo python setup.py build (takes a little while..)
       sudo python setup.py install
  • Test your numpy installation:
       python
       >>> import numpy as np
       >>> a = np.array([1, 2.5, 3])
  • Download SciPy source file and install manually:
       tar xvzf scipy-0.9.x.tgz
       cd scipy-0.9.x
       sudo python setup.py build (takes a little while..)
       sudo python setup.py install
  • Get a copy of the most recent PyBrain source code via git:
    git clone git://github.com/pybrain/pybrain.git
  • Install PyBrain from the source:
    cd pybrain
    sudo python setup.py build
    sudo python setup.py install
