Uninstall Python for Mac OS X

Uninstall Python Application in Mac OS X – Python removal steps from Mac OS X

Want to uninstall Python apps? Not able to find a way to uninstall Python completely from your Mac Machine? Is your Mac machine giving error after manually uninstalling Python application?

Uninstalling Python in mac is just a different approach than in Windows OS. Windows OS provides a option to uninstall application or application manufactures provides uninstaller with the application. But in Mac OS X there is nothing like uninstall utility. To uninstall the Python you simply need to drag & drop the Python application bundles to trash, that's it. STOP this is not the end there is more to properly uninstalling the Python from your machine.

Python Bundles – The Application Bundle

Drag & Drop leaves the associated files of Python application. Normally, it is thought that all the associated files of a application is saved in the one folder but it is not so. Python supported files & preference files are saved in other location than the Python Package folder. So you need to get all these files deleted manually. Deleting all the left overs of Python is not that easy, you need to find all the location where Python has saved the files. Some of the location where Python would have saved the files are ~/Library/Preferences/[] ~/Library/Application Support/[]
