Razer has announced that Synapse 3 will not support macOS. Would it be possible to add Mac support? I'd be willing to work on this if I had a bit of direction. I have a hackintosh that I dual boot between Windows and macOS and would love to be able to use some of my Synapse 3 only devices and Synapse on macOS is pretty crappy to begin with.

Currently the project uses a mixture of kernel drivers and a user-space component. I don't know how the situation is with kernel drivers but I don't think they are easily adapted to macOS.
In the future our plan is to switch to hidraw, a Linux-only feature, to replace (most of) the kernel drivers. I'd say macOS support would require a complete rewrite of OpenRazer to use hidapi or equivalent which probably won't happen in the near future.
But thanks for telling us with Synapse 3, we'll keep it in mind in case we get a ton of freetime 😄
