Instaling Beta Development Setup on mac

While installing using python script i got this error

TASK [install bench] ***********************************************************
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "cmd": "/usr/local/bin/pip install -e /Users/sam/.bench", "failed": true, "msg": "\n:stderr: /Users/sam/.bench should either be a path to a local project or a VCS url beginning with svn+, git+, hg+, or bzr+\n"}

I’m very new to erpnext please help
thanks!

@shreyasp can you check?

@samithaj Can you provide some details like, what command did you execute when you recieved this error message along with a traceback?

@samithaj I have the same error trying to install on a local imac running yosemite 10.10.4 using the Beta Development Setup instructions. Here is the full output of the commands:

edit: I just realized that I replied to the wrong person… sorry @samithaj I meant @shreyasp

Thanks for the suggestion. I followed the instruction on that page and got a failure on item 12: bench update

@Chris_Nuss

Can you please check site_config.json file in sites/littlebunnyip.local and common_site_config.json file in sites folder?

By looking at the error it feels you missed a delimiter ‘,’ in your JSON.

Please let me know, if you still face some problem.

Arrrrrrr yes, that was it. I left a ‘,’ off the end of a line in my site_config.json file after editing. Thanks for your help @shreyasp. It’s up and running.

Tell me, how did you know to look in this file from the traceback? I got that there was a comma missing somewhere. Sorry I don’t know how this all works.

Reading the trace!
