HollaEx on macOS

HollaEx for macOS

HollaEx is compatible with the Unix environment. Since macOS is Unix compliant, there are no difficulties running HollaEx on macOS. But, the auto dependencies installer would not work for macOS. This page describes a way to install the required dependencies on your Mac.

Installing dependencies

The software mentioned below are dependencies that should be manually installed on your Mac.

  • Latest Docker Desktop

  • Homebrew (Package Management Software)

Installing Docker

You can follow this document to install Docker and Docker Compose on your Mac.

Once done with the installation, you need to increase the memory through Docker Preferences since Mac OS restricts memory usage.

Click the Docker menu in the top status bar and select Preferences.

Go to Resources and increase Memory to 8GB manually, and click the "Apply & Restart" button.

Installing Homebrew

The most efficient way to install jq on a Mac would probably be using homebrew. Follow the simple step below to install brew on your Mac.

Open the Terminal application, and then enter the following command into a single line

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Enter the administrator password to begin installation (It will take a while depending on the speed of your Mac and internet connection). You will see the "Installation successful!" message once completed.

Now, you can proceed to the Installation doc to continue.
