Aravis on macOS 🍎


I had the chance to get my hands on an Apple 2014 MacBook Pro, and spend some time to play with the building of Aravis on this machine. The OS is macOS Catalina 10.15.7, with Homebrew for the build environment.

I was expecting to be able to run the command line tools, but I thought it will be harder to run Aravis viewer. I was wrong, it was just the matter of installing the right dependencies (Gtk, GStreamer and libnotify).

Performance seems acceptable, but it seems the update from High Sierra to Catalina had a negative impact on the USB3Vision maximum bandwidth. To be investigated.
