I need to get PIL installed locally to test GAE's images api in my local environment.
I grabbed the PIL 1.1.6 installer for Mac, and when I go to select the destination (when installing), I get the error:
You cannot install PIL 1.1.6 on this volume. PIL requires System Python 2.5 to install.
I have Python 2.5.x on this machine.
Added a bounty. I am in real need of a way to test the image API locally on my Mac.
That's quite easy:
- Install MacPorts
- Install Python 2.5 with
sudo port install python25
- Install Pil for Python 2.5 with
sudo port install py25-pil
- In the Google App Engine launcher Preferences set
/opt/local/bin/python2.5as Python Path *
- Restart the Google App Engine launcher
- Happy coding
* be sure to confirm it with an ENTER or it will not persist
