Install CDP client after Python on macOS

Install the CDP CLI client and verify if it is working.

  1. Use the following command to install the CDP client:
    $ pip3 install cdpcli --user
  2. Check the location of your Python directory that contains the client executable files. For example, for Python 3.6.x the executable files are in the following directory:
    ~/Library/Python/3.6/bin
  3. Add the Python directory that contains the client executable files to the PATH environment variable. For example:
    echo "~/Library/Python/3.6/bin" | sudo tee -a /etc/paths
  4. Use the following command to verify that the CDP client is correctly installed:
    cdp --version

    To upgrade the CDP client to the latest version, run the following command:

    $ pip3 install cdpcli --upgrade --user
