Hi guys,

I have looked for a while but didn't find anything; is there an executable for OSX Lion? Would be a shame if not.

Thanks for any help,

    Doesn't the current executable work with Lion?

    I get "Illegal instruction: 4" when trying to start by Terminal. After some research:

    "Illegal Instruction: 4 errors with binaries compiled with GCC 4.7.2 under Mac OS X 10.8.2 ("Mountain Lion"), when those binaries are run under Mac OS X 10.7.x ("Lion") and earlier versions. The binaries work properly under Mac OS X 10.8.x."

    As a general rule, we try to support the current version of the OS + one below. On OS X, this would be Yosemite + Mavericks.

    We don't have the resources to support older versions, but if you're familiar with the terminal you can try to compile it from scratch.

    Here are the steps:

    # Using Homebrew, install ant and maven
    brew update && brew install ant maven
    # Download the repository from GitHub
    git clone https://github.com/nodebox/nodebox.git
    # Change into the directory
    cd nodebox
    # Run ant
    ant dist-mac
    # A version of the NodeBox app will be compiled in the "dist" folder.

    Please let me know if this works for you.
