We are going to use the terminal for this installation process.
First make sure you have Xcode if not go ahead and download it from app store.
We need to download and install homebrew package manager, open up terminal and copy the script
$ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL </span><a href="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install"><span style="font-weight: 400;">https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">)"
Now that homebrew is installed, let’s download and install python 3, it will take a few minutes.
$ brew install python3
Important OpenCV3 dependency
$pip3 install numpy
Before downloading OpenCV3 let’s install one of the OpenCV 3 dependencies which usually takes a long time, but this script will shorten the time
$ brew install gcc --force-bottle
Using this script OpenMP might not work but if you want it to work run this script
$ brew reinstall gcc --without-multilib
$brew tap homebrew/science
$brew install opencv3 --with-contrib --with-ffmpeg --with-tbb --with-qt5 --with-python3
For more options –with-cuda –with-quicktime
Linking apps all apps with brew
Now linking with python3
$brew link --force opencv3
