I'm using a Mac. I've followed the instructions to installing SimpleCV but I had to skip installing Xcode as it was not available in my current OS version. After installing SimpleCV I tried importing it in the terminal but then I encountered this error:

File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/Users/myname/.virtualenvs/cv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SimpleCV-1.3-py2.7.egg/SimpleCV/init.py", line 3, in <module> from SimpleCV.base import * File "/Users/myname/.virtualenvs/cv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SimpleCV-1.3-py2.7.egg/SimpleCV/base.py", line 59, in <module> raise ImportError("Cannot load OpenCV library which is required by SimpleCV") ImportError: Cannot load OpenCV library which is required by SimpleCV

I've read a post of having a similar problem but it was 2 years ago. Is there a work around or a solution for this now? Any help would be great! Thanks.
