- Python 2.x (should already be present on OS X systems)
tidal-bootstrap is small python script which attempts to ease the installation process of the TidalCycles programming environment. It only works on OS X for the moment.
tidal-bootstrap installs the tools mentioned in TidalCycles Getting Started guide.
The script checks if the following programs are installed on the system:
- ghci (haskell-platform)
If it finds that any of the dependencies are missing, it will ask if the user would like to download the missing dependencies.
If Haskell < 7.10 is currently installed, you will not be able to install Tidal because Haskell 7.8 broke in El Capitan. Uninstall ghc and cabal-install and try again. It may also be necessary to delete all libraries installed with the old cabal by running
rm -rf ~/.cabal.
