Clone the repository

git clone
cd GPGMail

Grab Dependencies

In order to communicate with GnuPG we use our own Objective-C framework called Libmacgpg. It's necessary to clone the Libmacgpg repository first, before building GPGMail.

cd Dependencies
git clone
cd ..




Copy Libmacgpg.framework from Dependencies/Libmacgpg/build/Release/ to ~/Library/Frameworks.

After that copy the GPGMail.mailbundle file from build/Releases/GPGMail.mailbundle to ~/Libray/Mail/Bundles, re-start and enjoy.

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X >= 10.9
