How do I install vim on OSX with Python 3 support?
The version of Vim you're running is the built-in Apple version, which you can see in the second line ("Compiled by [email protected]"). You can install either the
macvim packages with Homebrew and they will have Python 3 built in, since, as ParthS007 mentioned, the default Python is Python 3.
PATH environment variable will need to have
/usr/bin if you want to use the Homebrew version over the default system version (which you almost certainly do). You can edit your shell configuration to change the setting and then restart your terminal session.
PATH environment variable is set correctly, it's possible you may also have to run
brew link vim (or
brew link macvim) to create the appropriate symlinks. In general, you'll want
command -v vim to show
/usr/local/bin/vim by hand should show the correct Vim installed.

I have trouble installing
MacOS. I'm aware that there is a similar similar question on that topic. but I couldn't solve the problem

which is the default
vimversion installed on my mac. Unfortunately, it says:
-python3. So I assume python 3 is not installed. So what I did is the following:
brew remove vimwhich went ok and then
brew info vimand got the following message:

Is it because there are 2 versions of
I also tried
brew install vim --with-python3but got the following message
invalid option: --with-python3when typing
vim --version, I get:

Here are commands with their corresponding outputs
sudo nano /etc/paths:
/usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/sbin /sbin
command -v vim:
-bash: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Library/TeX/texbin:/opt/X11/bin: No such file or directory
Moreover I posted a similar question on another platform and did many attempt to try solving the problem. However the problem still persists.
ecjb about 3 yearsmany thanks for your answer @bk2204. It appears to be already the case. Here what I get after the command
sudo nano /etc/paths:
/usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/sbin /sbin. Moreover I posted a similar question on another platform and did many attempt (apple.stackexchange.com/questions/362833/…). However the problem still persists. Do you have another idea?
bk2204 about 3 yearsWhat do you get when you run
command -v vimand 'echo $PATH`?
ecjb about 3 yearsMany thanks: @bk2204. I edited the question with requested command and corresponding outputs. Do you see where the problem could be?
AngularNerd 10 monthsI had to add /opt/homebrew/bin to my /etc/paths. I put it 2nd after /usr/local/bin (Mac M1)
