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.
[buildout] extends = buildout.cfg parts += lxml versions = versions [versions] lxml = 2.2.2 [lxml] 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
