In Energyplus folder (V9.1) I have seen several python scripts (;,...) with eplaunch package without any manual. What are the purpose for those scripts and can they run in normal python script ?

Update: tried to build for Mac and got below warnings in warn-eplaunch.txt - could not pip/conda intall org and any further options. The is unable to launch even in standard EP folder. How to fix it?
Follow-up: got release link from JasonGlazer: - Just a symbol made me confused

missing module named org - imported by pickle (optional), /Users/kcu/Desktop/App/Install/EP-Launch/eplaunch/ (top-level)
excluded module named _frozen_importlib - imported by importlib (optional), (optional), /Users/kcu/Desktop/App/Install/EP-Launch/eplaunch/ (top-level)

EP-Launch 3 is written in Python and works across multiple platforms and very flexible about the processes that it can perform based on "workflows." The workflows include running EnergyPlus, running the Appendix G post processor, running the transition program and a few other utilities right now. Additional workflows can easily be added. Those workflows are located in the workflows folder in EnergyPlus. EP-Launch 3 is open source.

Seems like this is probably better as a new question. Did you use the mac.tar.gz file under releases?

No I could not find the link of mac.tar.gz at github site. That the reason why I try to build it
