I intend to replace the default Python installation with the one from Homebrew. Below is a list of steps that I want to take, but I first want to make sure that I'm not doing anything destructive, which is why I'm posting this question. :-)
Python.frameworkfolder is located in
/System/Library/Frameworks. Is it okay to remove it? Being under
SystemI worry that I might break something.
Remove all Python related files from
/usr/bin. In my case (and probably everyone else's), I'll be removing everything given by
ls -l /usr/bin | grep python:
In my case I also have
pipinstalled. The only reference to
pipI found is in
/usr/local/bin. To also uninstall
pipI'll delete the files given by
ls -l /usr/local/bin | grep pip:
Is there anything else that I should be doing to do a complete and correct uninstall? Are there any dangers that I should be aware of?
