Daily Lazarus trunk Snapshots for macOS - Cocoa - 64 bit - Intel


I have started producing Lazarus trunk snapshots for macOS Cocoa 64 bit. They are Intel only for the moment, but I may include ARM64 once the process proves itself for Intel snapshots.

They may be downloaded from

Using them should be self-explanatory but:

0. Compiled with BIGIDE option
1. Download
2. Unzip
3. Move lazarus-src to your home directory
4. Rename if you wish
5. Start with a shell script such as:

--- Code: Bash  [+][-]window.onload = function(){var x1 = document.getElementById("main_content_section"); if (x1) { var x = document.getElementsByClassName("geshi");for (var i = 0; i < x.length; i++) { x[i].style.maxHeight='none'; x[i].style.height = Math.min(x[i].clientHeight+15,306)+'px'; x[i].style.resize = "vertical";}};} ---#!/bin/shopen ~/lazarus-src/ --args "--pcp=~/.laz_trunk"
Setup FPC compiler, debugger etc on first start.

As of this afternoon, I have added ARM64 daily snapshots for macOS - I trust they will work as the executables are signed with ad hoc signatures.

Feedback is always welcome :)

I'd rather see good instruction to build from source -especially for Mac -. Daily snapshots are in my opinion a bit overcompicating things for a very limited audience.
And building from source is not rocket science.
Just my 2 cents.

I have already provided Wiki instructions for building from source for Intel and Jonas has provided Wiki instructions for doing the same for ARM64.

Still, in less than three days, there have been 23 downloads of the macOS Intel build from my Sourceforge Repo. It costs me nothing to provide these builds as I have automated the process and people obviously find it helpful. If the builds were not being downloaded, I'd save some electricity and not do it :)

Note I respect any effort to make things simpler for other programmers... Just in case
