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 12 (Monterey) on an Intel Mac. Resulting binaries are for macOS 10.13 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=10.13"
export CXX="clang++ -std=c++17 -stdlib=libc++ -mmacosx-version-min=10.13"
export OBJC="clang -mmacosx-version-min=10.13"
export AS="as -mmacosx-version-min=10.13"
export LD="ld -macosx_version_min 10.13"
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.
