Install opencv-python


So I was working on python these days while I just jumped in to this issue when install requirment.txt

-Download opencv-python click here
(Make sure to choose the right one for ya
ie if you are using python 3.6 as me and on OSX,
where cp36 indicates python 3.6*)

  • cd to the directory of python packages
  • pip3 install ‘Filename’ replace with opencv….

Giving that I am new to python I searched up how to install opencv-python on OSX but I ended up install a 3.3 version openncv-python using command

So the only solution for me was install a specifc version of python . This took me a bit of time since there was many articles on manually installation a non-contribution opencv-python also I do need a latest version of python. Hope this one helps you.
