macOS Build

Currently we don’t use / own a macOS machine, so all we can do is to build our code with Travis, so any Apple user’s contribution is welcome.


Update Homebrew, install CMake and libsndfile if missing.

brew update
brew upgrade cmake
brew install libsndfile


mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
      -DSFIZZ_VST=ON \
      -DSFIZZ_AU=ON \
make -j$(sysctl -n hw.ncpu)

Add -DSFIZZ_LV2=ON if you want to use the LV2 version of the plugin.


Usually the XCode build is called with something like:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -G Xcode ..
xcodebuild -project sfizz.xcodeproj -alltargets -configuration Release build

But unfortunately there is an issue currently building with XCode 10+ using CMake, so we are using make instead.
