Hive is a user-friendly Bitcoin wallet app for OSX.
- OSX 10.7 (Lion) or newer
- Java runtime (for now - required by bitcoinj lib)
First, clone the GitHub repository:
git clone email@example.com:hivewallet/hive-osx.git
Make sure you have CocoaPods installed:
gem install cocoapods
Install the required pods:
Now, import some Hive libraries which are kept in separate repositories as submodules:
git submodule update --init --recursive
Before you build the project, you also need to install some additional libraries using homebrew:
brew install libevent openssl maven brew link openssl --force
Then you can open the project workspace in Xcode (
Hive.xcodeproj), hit the Run button and wait for it to build. Enjoy!
Test vs. production network
Hive is currently set up to use the main blockchain. If you prefer to use the testing network to avoid risking real Bitcoin while testing the app, uncomment the line
#define TESTING_NETWORK 1 in
Hive-Prefix.pch and rebuild the app.
Warning: if you use the production network, be careful and don't transfer large amounts of bitcoins to the Hive wallet. The app is still in a beta phase and there's always a risk that something will go wrong and the wallet will be lost.
