It’s come up that homebrew now only provides python3. Unless you have a previous homebrew python 2.7, there’s no way to build SMTK without building your own python. (The macos-provided python will not work due to security sandboxing that prevents installing new site packages.) TJ has verified the SMTK/CMB superbuild will not build python on macos.
Going forward, should we
- prioritize getting SMTK/CMB to build using python3?
- try to get the superbuild on macos to build python2?
- forcing everyone to build their own python2?
