This documentation explains how to setup a build environment for FileZilla 3 and how to compile it under macOS using Xcode. These directions have been tested under macOS 10.14 on an Intel Mac. Resulting binaries are for macOS 10.11 or later.

Xcode[edit]

You need to download and install the latest version of Xcode from https://developer.apple.com/xcode/download/

Build environment[edit]

Open a Terminal and type the following:

mkdir -p "$HOME/prefix"
mkdir -p "$HOME/src"
export CC="clang -mmacosx-version-min=10.11"
export CXX="clang++ -std=c++17 -stdlib=libc++ -mmacosx-version-min=10.11"
export OBJC="clang -mmacosx-version-min=10.11"
export AS="as -mmacosx-version-min=10.11"
export LD="ld -macosx_version_min 10.11"
export PATH="$HOME/prefix/bin:$PATH"
export CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/prefix/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/prefix/lib"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/prefix/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/prefix/lib/pkgconfig"

If you ever close the terminal and reopen it, repeat the above steps before you continue.
