Prerequisites for Mac OS X
This page shows how to install the standard dependencies of apertium (and related packages) on Mac OS X.
You can run install-release.sh or install-nightly.sh to install the latest compiled version of apertium, lttoolbox, vislcg3 and HFST – that way you don't have to check out, build and install these by hand. You will still need gawk, subversion, autoconf, automake, pkgconfig from MacPorts.
First of all, you need:
- a full installation of XCode (http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/) including the Command Line Tools
- (http://railsapps.github.io/xcode-command-line-tools.html is nice guide if you get stuck here)
- Macports (http://www.macports.org/install.php)
Then install the apertium dependencies with Macports like this:
sudo port install autoconf automake expat flex \ gettext gperf help2man libiconv libtool \ libxml2 libxslt m4 ncurses p5-locale-gettext \ pcre perl5 pkgconfig zlib gawk subversion
If you need vislcg3/cg-proc/cg-comp (Constraint Grammar), you should also do:
sudo port install icu cmake boost gperftools
Once you've installed these packages, continue to Minimal installation from SVN (and skip the parts about lttoolbox/apertium, just install the language pair/language data itself if you ran install-release.sh or install-nightly.sh as mentioned above).
(Note: it is technically possible to install apertium and lttoolbox from Macports, but the version there is very out of date. It is not recommended if you want to do development.)
