Recently I got an iMac in my hands and I would like to run some E+ tests without installing windows in its drive.

following the question here from @Yi Zhang, I checked @Andyrew 's answer but the steps described don't seem to work for me.

after running step 2 python3 install terminal returns

running install running bdist_egg This command is available on Debian/Ubuntu only.

any clue/workarround?

thank you in advance.

Hi, unfortunately I don't have a Mac to test on, so this is the least supported platform. But, it should technically work so try something like this after extracting the zip/repository:

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Also, please not that I've moved development over to github here and merged all the most recent changes and fixes into the master branch. Please try this one going forward. So far, I've focused on the installers which I now have for windows and Ubuntu. I will try to get in shape eventually also.
