Installing Rappture on Mac OS X Systems
Note: You need to have X11 installed on your Mac before running Rappture.
2. Create a directory where you want rappture installed (for example "/usr/local/rappture"):
You can put the rappture distribution where ever you want.
3 Unpack the binary distribution.
tar -C /usr/local/rappture xvzf rappture-Darwin-PowerMacintosh-*.tar.gz
This will create directories "bin", "include", "lib", etc. under "/usr/local/rappture".
4. Edit the start up script.
In the editor change the value of RAPPTURE_INSTALL_DIR at the top of the script:
#!/bin/sh # # If you install Rappture elsewhere, edit the line below: RAPPTURE_INSTALL_DIR=/Users/rappture/... ^^^^
Set it to the location of the installed rappture distribution (e.g. /usr/local/rappture).
5. Test it out. Put the Rappture bin directory on your command path:
for csh/tcsh: set path = ( /usr/local/rappture/bin $path )" for sh/bash: export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
(NOTE: You should put the PATH setting in your .profile file (sh/bash) or your .cshrc file (csh/tcsh) so it happens automatically whenever you start a shell.)
Now, run one of the examples:
cd /usr/local/rappture/examples/app-fermi/tcl rappture
This should bring up a simple Fermi function simulator, built with Rappture and Tcl!
Try another example:
cd ../../graph rappture
This should bring up a simple graphing calculator, built with Rappture and Python!
