The collective.xdv manual on plone.org tells you how to customize your buildout.cfg in order to be able to run collective.xdv on OS X. However if you are working in a team of developers where not everyone is using OS X, it’s nice to have your specific buildout hacks in a separate osx.cfg file.

Below is an OS X specific osx.cfg file that extends the original buildout.cfg with OS X specific hacks for collective.xdv.

extends = buildout.cfg
parts +=

versions = versions

lxml = 2.2.2

recipe = z3c.recipe.staticlxml
egg = lxml
force = false

Now all you need to do is run buildout with config file set as osx.cfg.

$ bin/buildout -c osx.cfg
