Note for Macports users: There is a known issue. with python from macports that makes executables be placed in a location that is not available by default. A simple solution is to extend the PATH environment variable to the location where python from macports install the binaries:

$ export PATH=/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.5/bin:$PATH


$ export PATH=/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin:$PATH
