git svn broken on Mac OS X under SourceTree but not from the terminal: how to fix it.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/05

Not on the terminal, but only in SourceTree I got this error (full text below):

Can't locate SVN/Core.pm in @INC

Well, the Xcode binaries were here:

 $ xcode-select -p
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer

On Mavericks, perl is this version:

$ perl --version | grep -w for
This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 2 (v5.16.2) built for darwin-thread-multi-2level
(with 3 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

and git is this:

$ git --version
git version 1.9.5 (Apple Git-50.3)

Steps for fixing are at these blog entries:

All these solutions point you to change the system Perl installation, but since on my system it failed only on SourceTree, but from the terminal, I wanted to fix SourceTree.

pip: tool for installing Python packages.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/05

pip is a great tool for installing Python packages.

But upgrading them still isn’t so great. Here are two statements: the first to list packages needing an update. The second updating them:

pip freeze –local | grep -v ‘^\-e’ | cut -d = -f 1  | xargs -n1

pip freeze –local | grep -v ‘^\-e’ | cut -d = -f 1 | xargs -n1 pip install -U

If you’re interested in pip, it is easy to install if it isn’t already included in your version of Python that is..
