Hi there,

I am super excited for the new API and as I was attempting to play around with it I ran into the follow error:

OSError: dlopen(/Applications/EnergyPlus-9-3-0/libenergyplusapi.dylib, 6): Library not loaded: @executable_path/Python Referenced from: /Applications/EnergyPlus-9-3-0/libenergyplusapi.9.3.0.dylib

I think think this is will be solved in upcoming releases for V9.3+ based on what I saw on GitHub, but in the mean time I was wondering if anyone had figured out a solution (on OSX)?

What's your purpose for using API? You could use something else for now like eppy.

I am looking at control actuation and research. I have to date done this predominately using EMS but there are a lot of challenges with that method. I am hoping that going forward Python (or C) will give greater flexibility.

Building from source seemed to fix the problem.
