Installation on a Mac - Webclients


I’ve installed Mopidy on a Mac following these installation instructions. I have the Mopidy web server page displayed on localhost.

How do I install a Web client so I can manage it from the webui? None of the web clients listed have installations for Mac OS.

I’ve installed Mopidy-Mowecl with sudo python3 -m pip install Mopidy-Mowecl. The installation runs but the client is not displayed. Just the box saying this is where the web clients will be.

Where do I go from here?

Thanks for any pointers.

Install Python pip and python3 and then you can do like on every unix based system something equal to

python3 -m pip install Mopidy-Iris


I’ve installed Mopidy via home-brew without error. The blank Mopidy page was displayed on localhost port 6680.

I ran the installation using the commands you kindly provided. I tried Iris & Mowecl. Now Mopidy won’t run at all. I am getting an error message about GStreamer which I re-installed with home brew. Still won’t work.

This is the error I am getting:
ERROR: A GObject based library was not found.

Mopidy requires GStreamer to work. GStreamer is a C library with a
number of dependencies itself, and cannot be installed with the regular
Python tools like pip.

Please see for
instructions on how to install the required dependencies.

The reference just directs me back to the installation instructions I have already followed.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Also tried:

brew install

Still will not run.

In the end I think my python environment was screwed up somewhere. I deleted the thing and re-installed and its up and running.

The adventure continues.

Thanks for the assistance.
