How to install meld in Mac OS X Lion

Missing the nice and sweet meld program for your SVN or GIT diffs in Lion?

Try this:

  1. Get and install pygtk:
  2. Get meld
  3. Extract the tar.bz2, go to the extracted directory and then run:
    1. Note: This assumes you have brew installed. If not, see here.
      • $ brew install intltool
      • $ brew install gettext
      • $ export PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/$PATH
      • $ make prefix=/usr/local/ install 
  4. Now you should now have the 'meld' command available.

Some useful links I went through to figure the above mentioned steps:
  • http://meld.sourceforge.net/
  • http://meld.sourceforge.net/install.html

I also needed "brew install scrollkeeper" , which itself required running this script to register docbook https://gist.github.com/462528
