Building on Mac

While cross-compilation of Darwin binaries is not available yet, it is possible to build binaries in a native Mac environment. While Yara is generally available using brew, we are going to compile the latest available sources. Before doing so, we need to install some dependencies:

$ brew install automake libtool go-bindata

Now you can proceed to download and compile the Yara sources in the same way as explained in the Building on Linux section. Once Yara is compiled and install correctly, you can proceed building binaries for Mac using the follwing command:

$ BACKEND=example.com RULES=test/ make darwin
