Installation fails on Mac Book Pro M1


I am trying to install Perceval on my Mac Book Pro (Apple M1, macOS Monterey) - but I am having the following message:

pip install perceval-quandela
× python bdist_wheel did not run successfully.
│ exit code: 1
╰─> [4 lines of output]
running bdist_wheel
running build
running build_ext
error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘cmake’

Do you know why I have this problem and how to fix it?

We’ll be releasing binary wheel for macOS soon !
