Python cocos2d Installation

Notes for installing the cocos2d game framework in Python, from the ground up.

Mac OS X

This is a very low level, ground-up list of steps. Skip some if you've already gotten some of these out of the way before.

  1. Install homebrew
  2. Install Python: brew install python
  3. Install cocos2d: pip install cocos2d

Install was surprisingly simple (no need to get OpenGL dependencies? I did have Xcode installed, though).

Python 3

Works in Python 3! OS X instructions:

  1. brew install python3
  2. mkdir ~/.venv
  3. pyvenv ~/.venv/sandbox
  4. pip install cocos2d
