Installing ClearSilver 10.5 on OS X

I struggled for couple of hours tonight trying to get ClearSilver to build under OS X, so I could investigate Bitten, a continuous integration tool for Trac.

Here’s how I succeeded.

Download the source to ClearSilver and unpack it. Then change to that directory. You’ll need to enter the following command to configure:

$ ./configure --disable-apache --disable-java --disable-ruby --with-python=which python --disable-perl --disable-csharp --enable-gettext

Then do the make; make install dance (you may need to sudo the second one).

Finally, and this one took me a second go to remember, change to the python subdirectory, and use:

$ python build

$ sudo python install
