How to install Synergy on OS X Sierra (10.12)

Install homebrew

brew.sh

Install cmake and qt

$ brew install cmake qt

Install XCode

Clone the symless/synergy repo

$ git clone https://github.com/symless/synergy.git

Figure out SDK version

$ xcrun --show-sdk-version
10.12

Use this version to configure the compiler in the next step.

Export qt into PATH

$ export PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/qt/5.9.1/bin:$PATH

Note your PATH to qt will be different.

Configure compiler

$ cd synergy
$ ./hm.sh configure -g2 --mac-sdk 10.12 --mac-identity test
