This page gives you an overview about how to get Eiffel Studio running on your Mac.

Installation using MacPorts

MacPorts is a great tool that allows you to use many unix applications on the mac. We have created a package in the MacPorts repository that allows you to to install a fairly recent build with all dependencies in a convenient way: After installing MacPorts as described here simply type

sudo port install eiffelstudio

and you're ready to go (after a few hours compiling that is :)).

Note that you may need to precompile the libraries once with admin rights. To do that, you can type: "sudo estudio" on the command-line and then use the precompilation wizard (Tools->Precompilation wizard) or simply create a new project that will be precompiled.

Installing our builds

Alternatively you can also use one of the binary packages we provide here:


If you use a Mac, that does not have an Intel Processor, you can download EiffelStudio here:

  • or maybe you just want the Eiffel57 folder (19.10.2006 - Revision 64380)


If yor use a Mac that has an Intel processor, you can download EiffelStudio here:

EiffelStudio57.app (Revision 64493)

Or maybe you just want to get the Eiffel57 folder. (Revision 64493)
