Hello,

I have a Mac laptop. Do you have a download for me?

Kind regards,

Shami
Hi Shami,

Checkout this forum post.
Unfortunatelly there is no Mac OS version, but you could easily run it inside a virtual machine.

The videos at the Academy where recorded using a Mac OSX, with Service Studio running inside a virtual machine with Windows 7, and the Platform Server running in other virtual machine in our infrastructure.
Still no Mac OSX10  version available? Why's that?
Hi,

You must use Parallels or other virtualization on your Mac. You'll probably have to deal with your screen resolution also.
Check these:
thanks
Really dissapointing that dispite a huge market share of Mac users there is no mac version. Come on !! we are in 2015 not in 2005
Hi Edwin,

I am a Mac user myself and I am sorry for the frustration... 

Surprisingly enough, there haven't been as many requests to support Mac as I would expect.  Anyway, a while ago an idea was posted, vote it up :) I guess that it's always a matter of priorities and understanding what capabilities will add more value...

Cheers!
Mario
Hi Edwin,

Yes it's not convenient it but it does work very well using Parallels.
Reality it’s likely to be way down the “To Do” list.

Hi all,

I do my Outsystems work every day on a Mac via Parallels without any dissatisfaction.  On a 15" Retina MacBook Pro - as soon as you tweak the HiDPI setting, you'll be working smoothly with lots of screen real estate.  I'm running Windows 10 btw. 

Anyway, my two cents.  Have a great day
outsystems is a beginner

outsystems for mac is a want .

I have been using the Parallels.

I would be nice if there is Cloud version so you can access by browser.

Why not make a virtual machine available.. I have virtualbox running on my Mac(s) and they run smoothly. Didny try to install the outsystems dev environment though (yet).


Hi Rob! 


That's a pretty good question indeed. I believe it mostly has to do with the licensing of Windows.

Hi Guys,


Sorry for posting in such old post.
But I think the wait is over.
We have now OutSystems IDE Technical Preview available for Mac.

Hi Shami,

You can download the new Mac version of outsystems from this link:

https://www.outsystems.com/home/downloadsdetail/110/2112/

Enjoy.

It's a little disappointing actually since it's not a native app and just a wine wrapper.

The app UI looks bad on the Mac, especially the fonts, it's not a pleasant experience.

It's good enough for quick personal things, but far from being a professional tool to work on all day.

But still better than nothing..

Fair feedback, @Carlos. Thank you! This early version of Studio for Mac is a pragmatic way to extend that platform to our Mac users in a quick way. It's not perfect (yet), hence the Tech Preview mode. Please let us know if you run into functional or other issues.

Using the wine wrapper definitely a quick way to add Mac support, however, the lack of multiple monitor support and the problems when using mission control causes this app to not be useful at all. 

Understood, Jared. Actually if you use dual monitors, Studio for Mac will indeed function (you just need to momentarily turn on mirroring then switch back to dual monitors after Studio is started). 

Can you share more about the mission control problem? Screenshot?

I was not able to capture a screenshot but sometimes app focus is lost and one of my other windows will go in front of Studio. This could be a 10.14 bug as I have not noticed it on 10.13. 


Hi,

I've been tasked to try outsystems by my employer. Since I have a mac on which I develop I tried the service studio for mac.

I understand it is still in technical preview, nevertheless the experience has been rather bad.

  • On numerous occasions i click "trough" the app literally click the window beneath the service studio's window.
  • The loading of the first tab(which displays the forge) takes minutes.
  • The forge tab is utterly unusable and only works if u hover over the items you want to click for multiple seconds before actually clicking.
  • Loading previews of screens often takes over 15-20 seconds and more.
  • Encountered crashes with some (minor)loss of work multiple times 
  • I can not even count the times i find myself clicking escape because the selection of multiple items in the elements tree has been triggered(as if holding ctrl while selecting something)
  • The storage of the oml files feels shady as f. can not compare on how this is done on windows although the app being a wine wrapper this makes sense.
  • Standard macOS key bindings do not work eg. cmd + q is not quit but results to manage dependencies as it translates to ctrl+q directly
  • Switching resolution of the screen requires a restart of the studio
  • Numerous of other small issues...

At this point you guys would have been better off not releasing a mac version at all. Better would be to just release an image or advise people to use windows.

The product seems far from attractive when tried on a mac the first time using, Gonna give it a go in a virtual machine as i understand it is because of the poor way you handled the `mac port`, nevertheless this says something about quality standards.

Hi Lewis.

Thank you for your honest and valuable feedback about your service studio experience on mac.

We are aware that our Technical Preview is still facing some important quality issues. Quality is key to us and we are actively working, namely with the wine community, to solve this and move the Technical Preview to a Beta state. We already have more than 100 active developers that are choosing this version over the usage of virtualized machines, with higher costs and resource consumption.

We care a lot about our developers and community and, once again, thanks a lot for your honest feedback.

We are working to improve this and, as we release new versions with quality improvements, we'll let you know.

Kind regards,

Tércio
