doxx on Mac OSX
In order to run doxx, you need to have the Python interpreter on your machine. While Mac OSX 10.9 comes pre-installed with Python, let’s upgrade to the current Python release.
There are a few options.
Install Python with Homebrew
If you use the Mac OSX package manager, Homebrew, you can use the following command to upgrade your Python version to the current release:
$ brew install python
Install Python with a Mac Installer
Head to the Python download page, and click through the latest Python 2 release link. Click on the Mac OSX 64-bit installer file to download the file. Double click on the file to launch and execute the installer.
Install Python from Source
If you’ve previously installed XCode (or installed a compiler on your machine without the XCode install), you can compile and install Python from the source code. Download the current Python release tar archive and unpack it. Navigate to the top level of the source directory in your Terminal application and run the following commands:
$ make && make install
How to Install
The Python package manager, pip, is installed with the latest Python releases and can be used to install doxx on your system. Use the following command:
$ pip install doxx
You will see install process reporting in the standard output of the terminal followed by a confirmation that the install took place without issues.
Confirm your doxx install with the command:
The current release version of doxx should be displayed in your terminal.
doxx Upgrades After Your Install
For future reference, you can upgrade to a new version of
doxx with the following pip command:
pip install --upgrade doxx
The current doxx release version is displayed on the main documentation page and new version announcements are posted to @doxxapp on Twitter. The changelog has details about what was included in each release.
