pgmagick is a Python wrapper for for ImageMagick (or GraphicsMagick). I needed it for something I was trying to run yesterday, but the instructions for OS X seem to have gotten lost in the depths of the Internet.
Once you’ve got that, it’s pretty straightforward:
$ brew install imagemagick --with-magick-plus-plus $ brew install boost --with-thread-unsafe $ pip install pgmagick
Building Boost takes a long time so don’t fret if you don’t see anything for a while. Try it out and it should work:
$ python Python 2.7.2 (default, Oct 20 2011, 17:33:50) [GCC 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2336.1.00)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import pgmagick >>> pgmagick.gminfo.library + ' ' + pgmagick.gminfo.version 'ImageMagick 6.x.x'
For extra credit, you should also be able to install the Python Imaging Library (PIL) as well:
$ pip install -f http://effbot.org/downloads Imaging==1.1.7
This all worked for me on OS X 10.7 (Lion). Your mileage may vary on other versions.
