I know that you don't like homebrew based solutions on macOS. The
reasons for this are understandable. This is why I suggested to use the
installer from python.org:
There are Python 3 installers available for macOS from python.org:
According to the pip project site it is already installed for Python 2
>=2.7.9 or Python 3 >=3.4:
For example to install Python 3.7.4 on macOS you can use:
I don't have a Mac and cannot test this.
The Python 2.7 end of life is in 2 months and 20 days (January 1, 2020).
The first Python 3 release was in 2008. Are there plans from Apple to
update their Python support in Xcode to a state of the art version?
Using the doorstop tool is not absolutely necessary right now. The file
format is so easy, you can do almost everything with a text editor by
hand (and scripts). What you cannot easily do is the calculation of the
fingerprint, however, this can be done by the one who commits a patch.
So, in case a Python 3 support with pipenv is on the Apple roadmap for
the next year, this would make this easier.
