An awful hack to use the Touch Bar over VNC, inspired by this tweet


  • macOS 10.12.1 16B2657 or later
  • a capable VNC client (i.e. not the one that comes with macOS)


  • Launch the TouchBarServer app
  • Set a port and password (if desired) and click Serve
  • Connect to your mac's address and the port you set with a VNC client

I haven't tested it too much, but it seems to miss clicks sometimes, especially if you connect to it from the same computer.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
