Install `mysqlclient` on Mac
I feel like I have to write this down because it’s so hard to find a solution that really works on StackOverflow.
Make sure you have Homebrew installed on your mac.
First, install XCode command line tools if you don’t have them.
$ xcode-select --install
Second, install openssl and mysql using brew
$ brew install openssl mysql
Finally, set the SSL library path explicitly and install mysqlclient with pip
$ LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib pip install mysqlclient
