Tkinter Python 3 Download Mac

Python 2 is bundled with Mac OS X. However, Python 3 is not. We recommend that you download and install Python 3, and use Python 3 exclusively when running programs associated with this booksite. Perform these steps to download and install Python, IDLE, Tkinter, NumPy, and PyGame: Browse to the Python for Mac download page.

  1. Python 3 For Mac
  2. Python Download Mac Os

Tkinter is an old GUI toolkit, that has been popular also in some Python projects. Sometimes it might be tricky to install. If you just can't get past ImportError: No module named '_tkinter', read on. We'll install it with Python 3.4 on Mac OX S Yosemite and macports.

We're assuming to have a Python 3 installation, possibly inside a pyvenv.

If we'd like to use tkinter, we get the following error:

First we check that we have the tkinter package installed and it's in the Python module path.

For Python 3.4 there's a port named py34-tkinter:

The installed files are here:

Mac

However the module is not in the Python path (note the site-packages/ subdirectory):

It seems that the py34-tkinter package should put the _tkinter.so file one directory level higher. We can hack it by making a symlink:

If it's ok, the tkinter module can be imported without any error:

Importing the module this way opens up a small testing GUI dialog.

Hope this helps!
