As near as I can tell, brew install python now

  • Installs python as a framework-style build by default
  • Adds appropriate symlinks for python, etc. to /usr/local/bin/
  • Doesn't appear to install anything under /usr/local/share/python besides some demo items under share/

As such, I believe the directions I deleted are no long applicable.

Would appreciate others' feedback on my findings / assumptions here. Cheers!

I'm pretty sure we still need the export PATH=/usr/local/share/python:$PATH part for binaries like pip, etc.

Added back the export PATH=/usr/local/share/python:$PATH section. But continued to leave out the --framework option and associated explanation. If this isn't the right way to go, or there's something I'm missing, by all means feel free to close. Cheers!
