Installation on macOS
Ensure you have a proper compilation toolchain.
This should be as simple as:
Now you can install delve using
$ go get github.com/go-delve/delve/cmd/dlv
Note: if you are using Go in modules mode you must execute this command outside of a module directory or Delve will be added to your project as a dependency.
With this method you will not be able to use delve's native backend, but you don't need it anyway: the native backend on macOS has known problems on recent issues of the OS and is not currently maintained.
If you didn't enable Developer Mode using Xcode you will be asked to authorize the debugger every time you use it. To enable Developer Mode and only have to authorize once per session use:
sudo /usr/sbin/DevToolsSecurity -enable
Compiling the native backend
Only do this if you have a valid reason to use the native backend.
- On macOS 10.14 manually install the legacy include headers by running
- Clone the repo into
make installin that directory (on some versions of macOS this requires being root, the first time you run it, to install a new certificate)
The makefile will take care of creating and installing a self-signed certificate automatically.
