Build on macOS
This document describes how to build NebulaStream on macOS.
💡 NebulaStream has been tested on macOS Big Sur and Monterey and on Intel and Apple Silicon Macs.
⚠️ The build on Apple Silicon Macs is still experimental.
Step 1: Install Required Dependencies
💡 These instructions assume that you install dependencies with Homebrew.
brew install cmake clang-format graphviz doxygen
Step 2: Clone the NebulaStream Github Repository
💡 Contact us to get access to the NebulaStream source repository on Github.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:nebulastream/nebulastream.git
Step 3: Build NebulaStream
cd /path/to/nebulastream mkdir -p build cd build cmake -DNES_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES_LOCAL=0 .. # Use -DNES_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES_LOCAL=1 on Apple Silicon make -j make test
💡 NebulaStream ships with prebuilt dependencies for most architectures.
However, for macOS running on Apple Silicon, these are not yet available.
On these systems, you have to use the parameter
-DNES_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES_LOCAL=1 when running cmake.
This can take about an hour on an Apple M1.
We will provide prebuilt dependencies in the future.
💡 Refer to the CMake build options for a description of the parameters to modify the NebulaStream build process.
