Homebrew and Caskroom Tap for Golem.


  • A public IP address or forwarded TCP ports: 40102, 40103 and 3282 (see installation notes).

  • Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra) or later.

  • Homebrew - The missing package manager for Mac OS.


Type in terminal:

brew tap caskroom/cask
brew tap golemfactory/golem
brew cask install golem

# docker-machine-driver-xhyve package needs root owner and a suid bit

sudo chown root:wheel $(brew --prefix)/opt/docker-machine-driver-xhyve/bin/docker-machine-driver-xhyve
sudo chmod u+s $(brew --prefix)/opt/docker-machine-driver-xhyve/bin/docker-machine-driver-xhyve

Please keep in mind that Golem depends on many packages. Therefore, the installation varies on the computer. Some of the packages may already be installed on your computer and the others have to be linked. A typical example is the docker-machine package, which provides brew link docker-machine. After linking, you must restart Golem installation.

docker-machine-driver-xhyve package needs root owner and uid, therfore you will be asked for root password during installation.

Running Golem

Type golem into Spotlight or select golem from Applications.

Golem is still under development and is not signed with a valid signature. The first time you run Golem, your Mac OS X system will surely shout out that it cannot be opened because the software is from an undefined developer. To work around the problem please double click the application from Applications folder in Finder together with control key. Subsequently, click open.


brew tap golemfactory/golem
brew reinstall golem
brew cask reinstall golem


brew update && brew upgrade


brew cask uninstall golem-mainnet-launcher
brew cask uninstall golem
brew uninstall golem
