all attempts to download the latest builds from http://sigrok.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X yield a broken 22K '.DMG' file which will not mount.
I got the GUI software from archive.org, which finds the device, but there's no sign of any macOS version of the CLI package (sigrok-cli) there or on http://sigrok.org
I don't have access to a mac to test this but I can unpack the June 23rd 2022 image on Windows so maybe that one will work for you...

Fab, thanks Andrew:

https://web.archive.org/web/20220510071 ... IGHTLY.dmg

seems to be a good one.

However to make it work (using the script inside the sigrok-cli.app package) I found I needed to extract the dynamic library libintl.8.dylib from Contents/Frameworks/ and copy it to /usr/local/opt/gettext/lib/ otherwise it crashes with this helpful message in terminal:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/gettext/lib/libintl.8.dylib
Referenced from: /Volumes/sigrok-cli NIGHTLY/sigrok-cli.app/Contents/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/Python
Reason: image not found
Abort trap: 6


I already have Python 3.7 (which is three-quarters of the contents of the DMG) installed in /usr/local for other work that doesn't like the ancient 2.7 Apple install by default, so it's possible that some of the other dependencies in the DMG might need similar treatment, but as far as I can see libintl is the only broken one - perhaps added when the GUI version was localised - I can see (and expect) no signs of internationalisation in the sigrok-cli.main binary - all the strings are English literals.

Glad not to have had to rebuild it from source, cheers!

Glad I could help and thanks for posting your findings, they may help other Mac users. If all else failed you could have just used your Miggy's parallel port ;-)
