This page describes how to build the sigrok subprojects on Mac OS X.

Building using Homebrew

These instructions have been tested on Mac OS X 10.9.1.

Requirements

Install Homebrew.

Tap sigrok:

$ brew tap rene-dev/sigrok

If you want PulseView, you must install unstable.

Unstable

$ brew install python3
$ unset PYTHONPATH # to avoid system python2.7 conflicts
$ brew install --HEAD libserialport
$ brew install --HEAD --with-libserialport libsigrok
$ brew install --HEAD libsigrokdecode
$ brew install --HEAD --with-libserialport sigrok-cli
$ brew install --HEAD pulseview

Stable

If you just want sigrok-cli, you can install stable.

$ brew install sigrok-cli

Building manually

These instructions have been tested on a clean install of Mac OS X 10.6.8, 10.8.4 and 10.9.1.

Requirements

Install MacPorts, follow the guide on macports.org (this step will require Xcode and Command Line Tools for Xcode be installed on your machine, which are also a dependencies to build sigrok).

Install Qt, download qt-mac-opensource-4.7.4.dmg from qt.nokia.com (Only needed for PulseView).

Install git (not needed at least with 10.8.4):

$ sudo port install git-core

This will also pull in a bunch of dependencies required by git-core (and some of them also by sigrok).

Install boost, libusb, libzip and libftdi, the libsigrok build dependencies:

$ sudo port install boost libusb libzip libftdi0

Install autoconf, automake, cmake, glib2.0+, python 3.3, libtool and pkgconfig to satisfy version dependencies in the build process.

$ sudo port install autoconf automake cmake glib2 python33 libtool pkgconfig

Set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to reflect the future locations of libsigrok and libsigrokdecode for the sigrok-cli build process.

$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/

libserialport

libserialport is optional and required only for devices with serial connection, e.g. most multimeters. If not present during configuring libsigrok, the respective drivers in libsigrok will be disabled.

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libserialport
$ cd libserialport
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

libsigrok

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libsigrok
$ cd libsigrok
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

libsigrokdecode

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/libsigrokdecode
$ cd libsigrokdecode
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

sigrok-cli

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/sigrok-cli
$ cd sigrok-cli
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

PulseView

$ git clone git://sigrok.org/pulseview
$ cd pulseview
$ cmake .
$ make
$ sudo make install

Notes

  • To build on Snow Leopard (10.6) you need to use the Cocoa (32bit and 64bit) Qt libraries. Don't use the default download link on that page but the one you can find further down the page.
  • Currently we are using macports for the libusb dependency and are relying on the fact that macports are installed in /opt/local.
    • Python framework incorrect build for OS X issue 15353
