Install python 3.7 3.6 3.5 and 3.4 on BigSure with pyenv

This post is about installing python 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 since my previous post only supports python 3.8 and 3.9.
Also, I have gotten some questions on installing python 3.5 and 3.6.

In addition, I really need to install them on my BigSur lol.

If you just need to install python 3.8+, please check the following

Install python 3.8.0 via pyenv on BigSur

#macos #pyenv #python


install packages with brew

brew install zlib
brew install sqlite
brew install bzip2
brew install libiconv
brew install libzip

Install python 3.4.10

$ LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib -L$(brew --prefix bzip2)/lib" pyenv install --patch 3.4.10 < <(curl -sSL\?full_index\=1)

Install python 3.5.7

$ LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib -L$(brew --prefix bzip2)/lib" pyenv install --patch 3.5.7 < <(curl -sSL\?full_index\=1)

Install python 3.6.5

$ LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib -L$(brew --prefix bzip2)/lib" pyenv install --patch 3.6.5 < <(curl -sSL\?full_index\=1)

I also tried to install 3.6.9 and worked well(just changed the version).

Install python 3.7.3

I tried to install 3.7.6, 3.7.7, 3.7.8, and 3.7.9, but couldn’t install them. Only 3.7.3 worked with the following.

$ CFLAGS="-I$(brew --prefix openssl)/include -I$(brew --prefix bzip2)/include -I$(brew --prefix readline)/include -I$(xcrun --show-sdk-path)/usr/include" LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix openssl)/lib -L$(brew --prefix readline)/lib -L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib -L$(brew --prefix bzip2)/lib" pyenv install --patch 3.7.3 < <(curl -sSL\?full_index\=1)
$ pyenv versions
