Build PyGamma Wheels (OS X)
This document describes how to build PyGamma wheels for OS X.
This document assumes you are building a 64-bit PyGamma.
Setup Compiler and Python
- Install XCode to get the OS X build toolchain.
- Ensure a modern 64-bit Python is in your path.
- I used the Miniconda 64 bit Python 3 installer script for OSX.
- Once miniconda is installed, use the
conda create --name python37 python=3.7command to set up a python 3.7 environment. Change the name or python version as needed for your compile
- (optional) You can also compile for any other Python version for which you set up an environment.
- Install the
wheelpackage in your conda environment. One of the below steps should work:
conda install wheel
conda install -c conda-forge wheel
pip install wheel
- Switch to the desired miniconda environment before doing the "Build PyGamma" steps below.
Download and Build SWIG.
- Download and untar the SWIG source code. I was able to use the latest (4.0.2 as of this writing).
- Build with
sudo ./configure && sudo make && sudo make install
- Get the GAMMA source code via SVN.
make cleanremove previous compile files
python setup.py bdist_wheel
The wheel file will be in the
Note that the OS X Makefile and PyGamma's setup.py contain some special code to ensure the PyGamma wheel automatically gets the correct name.
