Hephaestos Capture

Hephaestos is free, but he will continue to existe and stay free only with your donations.
If you like and use the soft, please make a little contribution.
Thanks a lot.


Make content for Apple is to expensive

It's not only the price of the last Apple computer with the last OS, to be sure to fully compatible with all users.
But know publish an app for Apple is necessarily associate with a Apple develloper program subscription for an amount of 99 dolars each years. Otherwise the most of essentials functions of Hephaestos, like reading audio files on the disque are block by Apple, for "security reason".

I don't get enough time and money to continue with an Apple version. So actuelly Hephaestos is not compile, test or update on Apple anymore.
I don't even have a mac anymore.

If the donations are enought, you will get the pleasure to see the Apple version back. And who know, maybe a remote on iOS.

OSX instalation:

If you have an old Hephaestos version:

If you still want to install Hephaestos or an independant app on your Apple computer, there is a workaround.
The following command line desactivate Gatekeeper and the Apple restriction, allow by the way app made by non Apple developper program people.
It's might be a security issue, but i'm not sure that buyers don't make viruses, it's a trust question.

If you still want desactivate Gatekeeper and use independant app, open your terminal in the application/utility folder and type:

sudo spctl --master-disable


If you get problème to make your ENTTEC USB PRO accepted on Apple with OSX 10.9 and latter, it's normal.

I advice to download this little utility publish by FTDI (the electronic constructor) to uninstall the driver publish by Apple for FTDI device.
I love Apple, but since OSX 10.9.5, they decided to rebuild in the drivers for the FTDI chip present in Arduino and ENTTEC USB PRO, manly used, without notify even the chip builder or nobody, or even publish the code of the Apple drivers to make it usable for others.
Depend on software, they found others workarounds.
