CT on MacOS 11.1


We test LAB CodeTyphon 7.30 on MacOS 11.1


Apple's MacOS 11.1 Big Sur is out, so we test LAB CodeTyphon on the new Mac operating system.

-No 32-bit applications support.
-No "Carbon" Desktop API support.
-New Apple's "concept" for developers, Notarization.
-Dynamic Linker cache.
-OS dynamic libraries are no longer present on the filesystem.

It's one of our LAB Reference OSes (yet...)

System: Middle level PC with 1 AMD64 CPU (8-Cores) / 8 Gbyte RAM / 120 Gbytes Hard Disk / 1680x1050 pixels Monitor
OS : MacOs 11.1 “Big Sur” (64_x86) 64 bits with Cocoa desktop




1. OS things and stuff..


From version 7.30 CodeTyphon don't use XQuartz.
CT get ALL XOrg server staff from MacPorts.
If you have XQuartz installed in your Mac,
our suggestion is to remove it.


a) Install Xcode from Apple Store

Accept Xcode license
Open a terminal and execute:

sudo xcodebuild -license

c) Install command line developer tools
Open a terminal and execute:

xcode-select --install

d) Install MacPorts https://www.macports.org

Turn off Gatekeeper, to Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere.
Open a terminal and execute:

sudo spctl --master-disable




2. Preparation-Give "sudo" root privileges

Open a terminal and exec

sudo nano /etc/sudoers


add at the end of /etc/sudoers the line


Ctl-X to exit and Y to save



3. Download-Unzip-Install

Download CodeTyphonIns.zip and unzip to your home directory


Open a terminal, and go to new CodeTyphonIns directory

cd CodeTyphonIns

Start CodeTyphon Installation with command

sh ./install.sh

Give zero "0" to Install CodeTyphon




4. Setup and Build for Cocoa

After CT install you can start CTCenter or to continue with the open terminal.

It's the first installation of CodeTyphon on this PC,
so we give "0" to install "system libraries".


Select "8" to build anything (ALL)...



5. Finally

CTCenter and Typhon64 for "Cocoa" desktop, with Single Windows Mode.



6. Libraries tests (Cocoa)











Test Typhon Multi Embedded Form Designers




7. Build Typhon IDE for GTK2

In this case only Typhon64 will build.

a) Switch Typhon IDE Host Platform to GTK2

CodeTyphon Center => Setup Dialog

and select GTK2 Platform

b) Only for the first time, install OS System Libraries

CodeTyphon Center =>HostPC=>"Install System Libraries"

c) Remove and Build Typhon IDE for new Platform (GTK2)

CodeTyphon Center =>Typhon IDE=>"Remove and Build"
