Hey all,As you may have heard, Juliar officially now supports Macintosh, specifically macOS Sierra. NOTE: This guide will probably work with older version of MacOS X, its just not been tested on it.In order to take a full advantage of  the *Juliar * web server capabilities, we are going to disable the server that comes with MacOS and enable our new server.First things first, download latest version of the *Juliar * Mac version, here.Next download the server configuration file, here, and save it to the desktop.For Juliar, I utilized Homebrew for Macintosh which is a package manager similar to Apt or Yum. For complete automatic install, I suggest that you use this file.Save the file as serverlaunch.sh and make sure that JuliarMac and nginx.conf are in the same folder. Make sure that JuliarMac, nginx.conf and serverlaunch.sh has permissions to execute.Launch serverlaunch.sh . It will download and install appropriate files. Make sure that you execute it without administrator rights. It will ask you to press enter at some point. Just press enter to install everything. It will eventually ask you for a password at some point, so just enter your password.Once everything is complete, safari will open up stating that Juliar is running and displaying a Juliar command.You can add more pages by going to  "Library/WebServer/Documents"Just add more .ju pages and you are now running Juliar Server on your mac.For debugging the pages, try out *environment * command as it will display everything you will need to know :)Good luck and have fun creating web pages in Juliar. If you are interested in contributing to the project, please visit https://www.juliar.org/ .
