I'm on OSX and was going to use ghost.py, but there's quite a lot of setup to get it running that isn't entirely obvious. This works:

pip install Ghost.py
brew install pyqt
export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

But then I into an issue with Xvfb not working as it doesn't seem to be included with mountain lion. Supposedly downloading and installing XQuartz is supposed to solve that, but it didn't work for me: http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/

This as opposed to getting phantomjs to run through selenium:

npm install -g phantomjs
pip install selenium

It seems like other people have had similar setup issues: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13287490/is-there-a-way-to-use-phantomjs-in-python

I would've preferred to use Ghost.py since the API seems nicer.
