Where is the .py file where FreeCAD is defined on Macos?

Hi, I'm writing Python scripts for FreeCAD on Macos. My imports (like 'import FreeCAD') work when I run the code inside/under FreeCAD but in my IDE (Eclipse with PyDev) they are reported 'Unresolved'. Naturally this is because the IDE cannot know where to look for those definitions that are embedded...

Re: FreeCAD no longer starts properly on Macos

For the record I found (missed it somehow on the first try): ~/Library/Preferences/FreeCAD.plist but this contains nothing very exiting and I did not have to touch this to make FreeCAD work again. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www...

Init.py not executing on Macos or print output not shown

Hi, taking my first steps in FreeCAD Python programming. First of all I'm on Macos 10.10.5 Yosemite. I created a Hello Word 'Init.py' file and put it to a directory 'cloud9' inside 'Mod' as instructed, but I saw no output in the Python console nor in Report view. To investigate this further I create...

Re: Cloud/WebGL/HTML5/Browser ... again

Re: FreeCAD no longer starts properly on Macos

Could not find 'Library/Preferences/FreeCAD.plist' but there was 'system.cfg' and 'usr.cfg' and I deleted them (actually renamed them diff them with the correct ones) and now FreeCAD starts. Great, thanks.
