Set up MCPI Mod for Teacher Gaming Minecraft EDU on Mac

These are just some itemized steps so I can remember, for getting started coding Python on a Minecraft EDU server.
First, download and run the Minecraft EDU v 1.7.10 jar installer (I have) and install the client only (for students).
Then, download the McpiApiMod and put it in Library / Application Support / minecraftedu / minecraft / mods folder. This folder is tricky to get to. Open Finder, click Go and press option key, click Library, etc.
Run your Minecraft EDU launcher, click Mods, and under Client Mods make sure Minecraft Pi API is checked.
Then, download and unzip kbsriram MCPIAPI library. Move that folder to Library / Application Support / minecraftedu / minecraft folder.
To make it easier to get here in the future, drag the mcpimods folder to your dock, next to the downloads folder.
Now you should be ready to code some Python in Minecraft!
