Install required tools and libraries
Required tools and libraries can be installed using either Homebrew or Macports, as described below.
In both cases, you will need to download and install XCode, first.
Homebrew (plus official Qt installer)
- Install Qt (use the official Qt installer, recommended version Qt >= 5.6)
- Install homebrew and get some basic dependencies (http://brew.sh/)
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew install cmake wget coreutils p7zip gettext ninja python3 bison boost shared-mime-info
- Optional: You might need some extra environment variables
export CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.8.1/lib export CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.8.1/include export PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/bison/3.0.4/bin:$PATH # Setup environment (path must contain your Qt install, here 5.7 default location and brew's gettext) export PATH=/Users/cullmann/Qt5.7.0/5.7/clang_64/bin:/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.7/bin:$PATH
Macports (including Qt)
- [Install Macports]
- Install basic dependencies and tools:
sudo port install git qt56 cmake wget coreutils p7zip gettext ninja python36 bison boost shared-mime-info
- Add GNU coreutils to your system path:
# Prepare some build directory in your home directory, here we assume: mkdir ~/kf # Switch to this build dir cd ~/kf # Get Craft git clone git://anongit.kde.org/craft.git # Copy Mac OS X config template to right location, should be OK to use out of the box mkdir etc cp craft/kdesettings.mac etc/kdesettings.ini
- Every time you want to use craft in a new shell, you need to set up the craft environment, first:
- In this shell, now craft is usable, e.g. to build Kate with all dependencies:
- To create a app bundle (+ dmg file), you need to have the breeze-icons around:
- To do deploy all things, unfortunately at the moment you need a patched macdeployqt. Example scripty for kate can be found on kate.git/mac/emerge-deploy.sh
- If you installed qt using Macports, your copy of macdeployqt should be patched, already. It will not be in your system path by default, however. Find it at /opt/local/libexec/qt5 .
