compiling from source

iCHS created in PB and depends on pb-osx-globalhotkeys.
You also need node-appdmg if you want to build dmg.

  1. Obtain the latest LTS version of pbcompiler, install it to /Applications.
  2. Install xcode command line tools by running xcode-select --install.
  3. Clone iCHS repo.
  4. Clone pb-osx-globalhotkeys module to neighboring directory.
  5. Run the included build/ script to build the app. If you want codesigning then provide your developer ID as a first argument.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
