MacOS comes with Python installed. But to make sure that you have Python installed open the terminal and run the following command.

python --version

If this command returns a version number that means Python exists. Which also means that you already have access to easy_install considering you are using macOS/OSX. Now, all you have to do is run the following command.

sudo easy_install pip

After that, pip will be installed and you'll be able to use it for installing other packages. For try if pip working well use:

pip --version

If you want install another modules - you can do this, for example:

pip install regex

Then runing

sudo pip3 install beautifulsoup4

  • Launch Sublime Text 3 from the command line & simlink to Subl
    in Mac

    These instructions assume you’re using the Terminal app out of the box, without ZSH or any fancy prompts like that. I trust you will be able to adapt these instructions yourself if you do.

    Step 1 : Create a symlink called sublime

    sudo ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" /usr/local/bin/sublime

    Step 2 : Check that your system profile can find the symlink you just created.

    open ~/.bash_profile

    Step 3 : Add both these lines & then save the file :

    alias subl="open -a /Applications/Sublime\ Text.app"
    
    export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

    Step 4 : Reload your bash_profile :

    source ~/.bash_profile

    Done ! You can now navigate to any of your code/script folders in Terminal and open them in Sublime with the following commands :

    subl .
    subl .zshrc

    in Mac

    The login screen on your Mac is perfectly functional as it is, but if you want to spice it up a little bit, blogger Jacob Salmela shows you how to customize the login screen with a logo of your choosing.

    If you don't want to install a whole program just for a simple tweak it's easy to do manually. All you need is a PNG that's 428 X 248. Then, you'll need to save it as four different files.

    Here's instructions:

    You need four copies of this file, and they need to be named:

    • apple.png
    • apple@2x.png
    • apple_s1.png
    • apple_s1@2x.png

    Once they are named correctly, just drag them into the following path:

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Resources/

    and then choose to replace all of them.

    That's it, log out, and you should see your new logo. Head over to Salmela's site for a few sample images and instructions for making your own.
