[IPython-User] [IPython-dev] Adding IPython to Dock on MacOSX

I loved the idea but I discovered that I would have had to make a small change to make it work. I had more than one copy of the Qt libraries on my Mac and the app version failed if I didn't specify which library to use. Enthought also creates an IPython launcher as an app, but just use a regular shell as the shebang and run the ipython command directly. I had to add

export DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH="/Library/Frameworks/EPD64.framework/Versions/Current/Frameworks:${DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH}"

before the ipython command to make sure it picked up the Enthought version of Qt. 

So you probably have to add something like 

os.environ["DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH"]='/path/to/your/QtFrameworks'

where the path points to the frameworks being used by the QtConsole.
