Trouble installing on Mac OS X 10.8

Reported by Robin Winsor | September 16th, 2012 @ 10:46 PM

I've gone through what appears to be a lengthy installation process but I still get an error of
Import error: No module named spidermonkey
I've never had to do more than

sudo python setup.py install

before so this has been very much more complex. Forgive the verbosity but the following seems like it might give a clue to someone more knowledgable than I as to what is going on... Any advice (in very simple terms - I'm a rookie at this) would be much appreciated.

    I haven't touched this project in quite some time. Though from the looks of this error report it looks like you're missing nspr and/or pkg-config. If you have Homebrew installed, you should be able to fix this with a brew install nspr brew install pkg-config.

Python/JavaScript bridge module, making use of Mozilla's spidermonkey JavaScript implementation. Allows implementation of JavaScript classes, objects and functions in Python, and evaluation and calling of JavaScript scripts and functions respectively. Borrows heavily from Claes Jacobssen's Javascript Perl module, in turn based on Mozilla's 'PerlConnect' Perl binding.
