Compiling on mac (general question, i'm new to mac)


#1

hi bros.

i’ll have to compile a littel juce tool (written in pure juce , maybe plattform depending printing or pdf export) for mac.
i never compiled/programmed anything on mac. so, how easy/hard will it be? are there free tools to build? can you point me in the right direction?

thanks

Get XCode from Apple. It’s free and it’s the standard now on OS X. I’m new to Mac, too, but XCode was not really hard to learn. But if you’ve used Visual Studio until now, you’ll see that XCode is really slow at compiling, compared to Visual Studio. So best is to code on Windows, and only do the compiling on Mac :slight_smile:
