The easy way

This will be with conda and brew, which will happen once there is a release.

I'll also look at making a static binary but this might be tricky due to how we are currently using fswatch.

The less easy way

You can compile from source, once you have taken care of the dependencies.

  1. Get the dependencies

Currently there is just libfswatch. It's easiest to get this with a package manager:

brew install fswatch

Alternatively, you can follow the instructions at the fswatch repo or use the install script from the ANTMAN repo:

  1. Compile ANTMAN

Just run the usual C autotools steps, making sure to point out where libfswatch is:

./configure CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
make check
make install
  1. Run some more tests

ANTMAN has some unit tests, which are run in the previous step (make check). There are also some system tests which check that ANTMAN installed correctly:
