Now that I have QGIS 3 running nicely on my Mac. I am having another go at building some plugins. I have installed the plugin builder plugin and run it without problems and it has generated a source directory.

I cd into the generated source directory and type make. First time it failed to find PyQt5, so I install that with pip3 install pyqt5-macos-built and try again. This time I get:

macMini:gpsconnect rful011$ make
pyrcc5 -o resources.py  resources.qrc
/usr/local/bin/python3.6: No module named PyQt5.pyrcc_main
make: *** [resources.py] Error 1

The resource file contains:

macMini:gpsconnect rful011$ cat resources.qrc 
    <qresource prefix="/plugins/gps_connect" >

Is this what one would expect? I can't figure out if the plugin builder is not working properly or wether the problem in in my PyQT install.

    It may be useful to try python3 -m pip install PyQt5 to install PyQt5. Commented Apr 11, 2018 at 16:16
