I have a Mac!

Thanks to the gracious donation from Hans Petter Langtangen and the Center for Biomedical Computing at Simula (http://home.simula.no/~hpl), I now have a new Mac Mini sitting at my desk. This should allow me to keep on top of changes that affect the Mac builds and to better track down Mac-only issues.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks and months as we will most likely be using some more of these funds to pay for hosted continuous integration services (as discussed yesterday in our MEP19 Google Hangout).

Cheers,
Mike

Mike,

That’s great news. Is there any chance we can look forward to “official” instructions for setting up a Mac to develop matplotlib?

I gave up a long time ago and started piecing to together my meager PRs in a linux VM.

We actually discussed this very issue yesterday in our Google hangout about continuous integration. We're probably going to need to script a full setup from a clean Mac + XCode to a working matplotlib development environment in order to make that happen, and obviously that will be shared with the world. Things are even more complex on Windows, and I'd like to do that there, too. So stay tuned.

Hi,

We actually discussed this very issue yesterday in our Google hangout about
continuous integration. We're probably going to need to script a full setup
from a clean Mac + XCode to a working matplotlib development environment in
order to make that happen, and obviously that will be shared with the world.
Things are even more complex on Windows, and I'd like to do that there, too.
So stay tuned.

We've got 5 macs running OSX 10.4 through 10.8 for us, you'd be
welcome to remote access to those, and we'd be happy to run builds for
you. Paul Ivanov has or will have access to the buildbot master and
all the slaves. We also have an XP and Windows 7 64 bit machine you
are welcome to use.

Cheers,

Matthew

Bless you for supporting OS X prior to 10.6! My family still has a quite functional OS X 10.5 machine that we should update but can't for various (less than stellar, but unfortunately real) reasons. I'm chagrined that Apple et al. no longer supports 10.5. I'm sure others feel similarly about their 10.4- machines.

On the other hand, no one would blame a development team that decided not to support what even Apple does not support.

:slight_smile: - we just happened to have them lying around. Actually, the 10.5
machine is PPC and catches endian errors fairly often, but I'm sure
we'll retire the 10.4 machine fairly soon.

I was looking into the TravisCI Mac testing environment. Right now, you can only run tests on a single os. You also trigger a Mac build by declaring your language to be objective-c. There are probably more q quirks, but that’s what I’ve found thus far.

I've been in touch with the Travis-CI guys about this a little bit. They restrict each project to a single OS partly to reduce resource consumption, but they said they might reconsider for paying customers (which we may want to become).
