Get the source code
The source code for Horos is available at GitHub.
Horos must be compiled on top of the OSX SDK 10.11 (El Capitan).
XCode 7.3.x+ is recommended for compilation.
Compiling the code
Open Terminal and type these commands to compile the code:
git clone https://github.com/horosproject/horos.git horos cd horos git checkout horos xcodebuild -target "Unzip Binaries" xcodebuild -target "Horos"
You can also compile Horos using the Xcode IDE – of course! From XCode or with Finder open the project named Horos.xcodeproj, which is in the directory you checked out the project. Then build the target “Unzip Binaries” and next the target named “Horos”.
