Doesn't run on OSX

See original GitHub issue

Firstly, it bails out with Libraries not available for this platform: Darwin, as the lib is not setup. The “32 bit” dylib from openvr, is actually a universal library, so has x86 and x64 images. (you can test this using lipo -info libopenvr_api_32.dylib), so needs updating.

Secondly, you need to specify the full path for LoadLibrary on osx or it won’t find the library with dlopen() (updating the PATH means nothing)

loadpath = os.path.dirname(__file__) + '/' + _openvr_lib_name
openvr = cdll.LoadLibrary(loadpath)

Working on next set of errors… 😃

I’ve gotten pyopenvr to load and work perfectly (at least with a single VR tracker) on OS X with just a single change in to make it load the libopenvr_api_32.dylib library on 64-bit Darwin. I didn’t run into any of the other issues SoyletGraham mentions. Perhaps those have been fixed in more recent changes.

Regardless, if you simply copy the Darwin check:

elif platform.system() == 'Darwin':
    _openvr_lib_name = "libopenvr_api_32.dylib"

into the 64-bit “else:” clause in, it works for me. I can open a pull request if it would be helpful.

Yeah, I’m also no longer using this either. I just wanted to make sure I made records of stuff I found in case other people had the same problem.
