Plone 5 theme development on OS X El Capitan


I'm trying to setup plone5 theme development on my OS X El Capitan. Plone 5.0.4 was installed with Unified Installer.
I also installed other tools.

$ brew install readline

I did install mrbob tools.

$ ./bin/buildout -Nc develop.cfg

But When I created initial theme, readline import problem occurred.

$ ../bin/mrbob -O sample.theme bobtemplates:plone_addon
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "../bin/mrbob", line 13, in
import mrbob.cli
File "/Users/shigeo/Applications/plone504/buildout-cache/eggs/mr.bob-0.1.2-py2.7.egg/mrbob/", line 11, in
from .configurator import Configurator
File "/Users/shigeo/Applications/plone504/buildout-cache/eggs/mr.bob-0.1.2-py2.7.egg/mrbob/", line 6, in
import readline
ImportError: No module named readline

How can I solve this ' import readline' error? Does anyone successfully setup theme development environment on El Capitan?

I appreciate any comments and help.

Thank you.

I use

I usually do

$ ~/Projects/buildout.python/python-2.7/bin/virtualenv .
$ bin/pip install zc.buildout

I just had to rebuild my macbook (thanks apple for providing absolutely no help or logs to give me any clue why my computer wouldn't complete booting and hense waste days of my time!!). By keeping python all within User folder all my buildouts continue to work perfectly despite migrating documents but no applications. Also it tends to not get broken by OSX upgrades like it previously did.

Did you also install XCode or its command line developer tools?

Off topic, but did this happen (not booting) when you installed an upgrade (because the same thing happened here yesterday, so probably skip that update).

Thanks Dylan,

I prefer work on Installed Plone directly, not in virtualenv. But I must consider to work on it.


Yes, I've installed Xcode and its command line tools.
