I have been trying to install "wireless" with pip but I keep getting errors.

sudo pip install wireless

  • How did you install pip? Do you have a python3 install (e.g. with homebrew) besides the stock Python 2.7? – klanomath Jun 20 '17 at 23:15

One proper way to install pip and wireless in a dual Python environment (i.e. stock OS X Python 2.7 and brew's Python 3.6.1) is the get-pip.py method outlined here: How do I use pip 3 with Python 3.4?.

curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py
sudo python get-pip.py
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/pip2.7 /usr/local/bin/pip2 #usually not necessary because pip2 already exists
sudo python3 get-pip.py

Then depending where you want to install wireless either

sudo pip2 install wireless #installs to /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/wireless

or

sudo pip3 install wireless #installs to /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/wireless

or both.
