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.
