- In order to install MacPorts, you need to have the Apple XCode Developer Tools installed on your machine. This can be done from inside the Apple App Store.
- Next, run Xcode and go to Preferences->Downloads and install the "Command Line Tools"
- Download the MacPorts package and install the package.
- To install QuTiP, in the terminal type: sudo port install py27-qutip
Thats it! All of the required packages are downloaded, compiled, and installed. It will take several tens of minutes to finish, but that is what wine is for.
