A tool to set current Python version (currently MacOSX only)

Project description


pythonselect is a MacOSX tool to set current Python version. If you have multiple Python versions installed - say, 2.6, 2.7 and 3.1 - then running the following will set Python 2.7 to be your current Python:

$ sudo pythonselect 2.7

pythonselect does this by creating appropriate symlinks in /usr/local/bin targetting the necessary binaries in your non-system framework Python install.


pythonselect is based on Komodo’s internal


Even though this tool is MacOSX-only at the moment, we plan to expand support for Windows and Linux.



  • New: Show list of installed Python versions without any argument

  • New: support for pypm, virtualenv, easy_install and pip


  • Fix: Prevent from running on non-MacOSX platforms


  • Initial import from Komodo source: mozilla/support/
