Damn it, I was sure I have posted logs yesterday. Anyway that is what I can see:

It works with Qt installed with pip, otherwise, I can see logs from above.

Thank you:)

OK. I'm not sure why you get a problem when installing with brew, but it seems as
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "cocoa" in ""
might indicate that it is a problem with your qt installation. I found other people (using other apps) that had the same problem that were helped by reinstalling.

Your changes were necessary, but I had to install pyqt5 with pip instead of homebrew, otherwise, I stacked with:

Code: Select all

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "cocoa" in ""
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Abort trap: 6
Maybe I should export some path somewhere when installing pyqt5 with homebrew?

Possibly, I'm not sure about the ins and outs of qt. I'm just happy when it works :-)

We should maybe consider to update the documentation somehow, but my feeling is that this is a bit if a moving target that changes from release to release.
