Auto-detect of Python3

Postby AlanObject » Tue May 05, 2015 5:53 pm

I use Mac OS 10.10.3 and NBPython under NB 8.0.2.

Upon installation the plug-ins successfully detect the Python 2.7 framework. However I want to work exclusively in Python 3 (3.4 currently) and that did not auto-detect.

With what is delivered from Apple plus using the standard Python 3 installer you end up with the frameworks in two different places:


The work around is to install the platform manually and it works fine.

Thanks for the information. I am currently rewriting the Autodetect feature, and will add this to my "standard locations". Very strange (to me) that 2.x is in /System/Library/Frameworks..... and 3.x is in /Library/Frameworks... but I have seen this reported by other Mac users.

I have added AlanObject to the NBPython Developers group. You can post in the appropriate forums there, and I will post when the newer build is available at
