I was looking to get started with pixlet and ran into this error when trying to install via homebrew. Is there an issue at the moment or is this a user error? Thanks!
I believe this was an Apple silicon / M1 issue. I ended up building pixlet from the source. Here’s what I ended up doing:
Update .zshrc / .bashrc:
export CPATH=/opt/homebrew/include export LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/homebrew/lib export PATH=/PATH/TO/pixlet:$PATH
Install Golang and WebP via Homebrew
brew install go brew install webp
Thanks for the workaround. I’m new to macs so this was helpful. I am having trouble though getting anything to run. I tried the command
$ pixlet serve --watch examples/clock.star but just get an error
zsh: command not found: $. I have a feeling I haven’t configured my zsh file correctly, but am at a loss as to what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Are you including the “$” when typing the command? If so, you should not, that is just a placeholder for the command prompt. The command should start with
oh that wasn’t too smart of me. Well now that I didn’t include $ it is now saying
zsh: command not found: pixlet. So I must have done something wrong in the setup.
When you did this line did you replace the “/PATH/TO” part with the path to the pixlet binary?
YES! That works. I thought that looked like I should have changed it. My bad.
Thank you so much for the help.
Any idea why this is happening, other than it is pointing to a web directory which no longer appears on github?
pixlet % make build
rm -f pixlet
go build -o pixlet tidbyt.dev/pixlet
…/go/pkg/mod/github.com/tidbyt/[email protected]/webp/anim_decode.go:7:10: fatal error: ‘webp/demux.h’ file not found

Was running into the same issue. Could you try to run the following:
sudo apt install libwebp-dev
This ended up bringing the files needed in and allowed me to build pixlet.
Thank you! I had to do a couple of additional workarounds to deal with the M1, but this set me on the right path!
So sorry for the issues here. We were able to add support for Apple M1 as of Pixlet version v0.8.4 . Please try the brew install again and let us know if you have any additional issues!
