Using the usual ride.py command to run on Mac OS X won’t just work.
If you’re getting the error below, then you’re in the right place:
python should be executed in 32-bit mode to support wxPython on mac. Check BUILD.rest for details
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that RIDE does not work on Mac OS X; it’s just that OS X runs Python on 64-bit mode by default but RIDE needs a 32-bit Python. To solve this, you just have to instruct OS X to use the 32-bit one before running RIDE.
An easy way to get around this is by creating a simple executable script (a shell script).
Step 1: Create the Script
- Open TextEdit
- Paste the entire text below:
- Save it as ride.sh
*The secret here is in the VERSIONER_PYTHON_PREFER_32_BIT environment variable. It tells the OS to use the 32-bit mode of Python.
