Here are my notes:

wxFormBuilder for Mac

As pointed out by @melto, a stable released version, 3.1.70, for os x works as well. The link to sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxformbuilder/files/wxformbuilder/3.1.70/wxFormBuilder-3.1.dmg/download

 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20039063/how-to-build-wxformbuilder-3-x-on-mac

 

This was also mentioned for Windows or Linux only

http://www.philasmicos.com/phes/system-requirements.php

 

To install wxPython package into your Python on Mac OSX

brew install wxpython

http://superuser.com/questions/196197/installing-wxpython-via-pip-or-easy-install

 

Download wxWidgets from site (I downloaded v3.1)

I tried standard with latest GCC compiler

./configure

make install  (this takes a long time!)

make

 

When complete you will get this result but note where the new library resides:

if test ! -d /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/`dirname $f` ; then \

mkdir -p /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/`dirname $f`; \

fi; \

cp -fp ./include/$f /usr/local/include/wx-3.1/$f; \

done

 

Here is another set of library path (and include for the library)

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/lib/wx/include/osx_cocoa-unicode-3.1/wx

 

Include director for headers (.h)

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/include/wx

 

 

Another attempt to download/build wxWidgets on Ubuntu Linux  but Python

http://wiki.wxpython.org/InstallingOnUbuntuOrDebian

 

https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Installing_and_configuring_under_Ubuntu

 

Configure Eclipse CDT https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Eclipse

 

Instead I tried to make a sample project out of a project

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/samples/image

make all

 

It worked! You go to directory of:

/Users/quantlabsnet/Documents/cpp/wxWidgets-3.1.0/samples

 

make all

This will make all sample projects executable

 

Description of samples here http://docs.wxwidgets.org/trunk/page_samples.html

 

Ones of interest: console, dialog, exec, image,layout, mdi (great layout components),

Menu, opengl/isosurf, richtext, sashtest, scroll, shaped, splitter (window), statbar, stc, thread, toolbar,xrc ,treelist, treectrl, listctrl, ribbon (another good gui)

++ many more

Configure Eclipse CDT https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Eclipse

This may be better as a full on tutorial

Surprise from this tutorial:

Retrieving the settings on Mac OS X

If you have Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, it comes preinstalled with wxWidgets. Just open up a terminal and type:

It does include configuring help for Linux and Windows as well.

 

Another tip for Mac OSX with Eclipse

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
