How to Rime with Squirrel
Instructions to build Squirrel - the Rime frontend for macOS
Manually build and install Squirrel
If you haven't already got the Xcode toolchain, install Xcode Command Line Tools:
Install dependencies with Homebrew:
Optional: set the USTC mirror to speed up the
brew install process in mainland China.
# dev tools: brew install cmake brew install git # libraries: brew install boost
You can also install them with MacPorts:
port install cmake git port install boost -no_static
If you've built Boost manually instead of installing it with Homebrew or MacPorts, please set
BOOST_ROOTto its top level directory in the terminal.
Checkout the code
git clone --recursive https://github.com/rime/squirrel.git
Build librime, dependent third-party libraries and data files:
Install it on your Mac
Once built, you can install and try it live:
sudo make install
That's it. Thanks for riming with Squirrel.
