@darius @aparrish @dphiffer Depends on the thing. For a lot of geo stuff like GDAL, PostGIS, and friends there are now great pre-compiled Mac OS packages and executables. Python 3 and Docker you can just download. Data science stuff mostly builds clean with pip. That’s like 80% of my needs right there, the other 20% I now handle with Docker. Homebrew is just not worth the sustained sadness.
I think QGIS.org now offers the same download with a less chaotic-sounding source, and building the GDAL Python bindings against it has been consistently easy for me: https://github.com/PlanScore/PlanScore#gdal

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
