sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Cenmrev/V2RayX/master/compilefromsource.sh)"
or step by step:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/Cenmrev/V2RayX.git
open V2RayX.xcodeproj and use Xcode to build V2RayX.
How does V2RayX work
V2RayX provides a GUI to generate the config file for V2Ray. It includes V2Ray's binary executable in the app bundle. V2RayX starts and stops V2Ray with
launchd of macOS.
V2RayX also allows users to change system proxy settings and switch proxy servers on the macOS menu bar.

V2RayX.app/Contents/MacOS/v2ray with the newest v2ray
version from v2ray-core
repo. However, compatibility is not guaranteed.

So, to totally uninstall V2RayX, just delete V2RayX.app and the files above. :)
V2RayX uses GCDWebServer to provide a local pac server. V2RayX also uses many ideas and codes from ShadowsocksX, especially, the codes of v2rays_sysconfig are simply copied from shadowsocks_sysconf with some modifications.

The developer does not major in CS nor Software Engineer and currently is busy with grad school courses. So V2rayX will not be updated frequently. Users can replace V2RayX.app/Contents/Resources/v2ray with the newest v2ray-core downloaded from https://github.com/v2ray/v2ray-core/releases.
The developer currently does not have enough time to add more features to V2RayX, nor to merge PRs. However, forking and releasing your own version are always welcome.
