I get this message after running 2.1.2 :

ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to system dependencies: python_qt_binding: No definition of [python-qt-bindings] for OS [osx] qwt_dependency: No definition of [python-qt-bindings-qwt5] for OS [osx] rviz: No definition of [libqt4-opengl-dev] for OS [osx] gl_dependency: No definition of [python-qt-bindings-gl] for OS [osx] webkit_dependency: No definition of [python-qt-bindings-webkit] for OS [osx] qt_gui_cpp: No definition of [qt4-qmake] for OS [osx] qt_gui: No definition of [python-qt-bindings] for OS [osx] turtlesim: No definition of [libqt4] for OS [osx]

When I try the next step 2.1.13 ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

I get this message:

I would appreciate any help. Thanks!

You issue is that the qt4 dependencies that ROS Indigo needs are no longer available. I removed them in this pull request because the Homebrew formula they mapped to were no longer available or supported:

Unfortunately, I think ROS Indigo on macOS with Homebrew is a dead-end. Basically Homebrew has dropped support for Qt4 and despite trying to come up with all the dependencies they removed:

I failed to get that path to work out. At this point I think we're only going to be able to support a Qt5/Gazebo7/ROS Kinetic setup on macOS.

@mikepurvis basically came to the same conclusion:
