Cannot run Pipenv install mysqlclient

I am unable to run pipenv install mysqlclient

Please someone help me fix this, as I can’t progress in the course without a solution.

Courtesy Notice: Pipenv found itself running within a virtual environment, so it will automatically use that environment, instead of creating its own for any project. You can set PIPENV_IGNORE_VIRTUALENVS=1 to force pipenv to ignore that environment and create its own instead. You can set PIPENV_VERBOSITY=-1 to suppress this warning.

  Hint: try $ pipenv lock --pre if it is a pre-release dependency.

I see you made a post as well😂

brew install mysql pkg-config
pip install mysqlclient

Worked like a charm
