Building for MacOS


Supported Compilers

You can compile EZ through one of these methods:

  • XCode 5.1.1 or higher (GCC / Clang) 64 Bit
  • Makefiles 64 Bit


You need to install these libraries:

  • XQuartz 2.7.5
  • SFML-2.5.1
  • Qt 5.11 (optional)

A good way to do so is via homebrew:

brew update
brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz
brew install qt6
brew install sfml

Using the command line

Run CMake with CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH pointing to the dependencies listed above. In this example, a build folder is created under the root of the repo and cmake is executed in it:

cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/qt/5.13.1/;/usr/local/Cellar/sfml/2.5.1/ -DEZ_ENABLE_QT_SUPPORT=1 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DEZ_ENABLE_FOLDER_UNITY_FILES=$(unityfiles) -G "Xcode" ../

Afterwards the generated solution can be opened in XCode.
