Deciding to buy or to subscribe

The software looks really promissing (have seen some Unfa videos).
I woudl like to use and support it.
What are good arguments to go with the 1-time package versus the subscription?
The package is a bad choice if you pay just for the exact current version - not even minor updates.
The subscription is a bad choice if the update frequency or impact is very low.
What shall I do?

@eriq thanks so much for considering to support the project! the more financial help I can get the more time I can dedicate to zrythm (and less on freelancing)

What shall I do?

it depends on whether you just want a cost-effective solution or want to support the project in the long run.

the subscription is mainly for those who want to support the project financially in the long run and/or want to be able to test it daily, and it will end up being more costly.

the most cost-effective solution by far is to get the beta bundle. there are releases very often anyway (usually every couple of weeks), and version 1 won’t come out for at least a few months - still tons of work to do.

@eriq btw I noticed you’re on OSX. this has been very problematic so far and I would hope it installs fine by now - if not please let me know and I’ll fix it. we don’t really have any OSX users at the moment (that I know of) to test it/report feedback

EDIT: the installation is also pretty hacky, it uses homebrew at the moment until we figure out a better way to package it on OSX. catalina added some restrictions that are hard to work around otherwise

Ohh, I tried to run the installer.sh but receive a couple of errors.
Shall I post them here, or register a bug?

Happy to be the first OSX user, test and provide feedback (until I finally switch to Linux), but currently I cannot get it to run on my Mac.

I think for installation errors it’s better to have them here on the forum so people having the same problems can easily find the answers

please post the output you see in the console here

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

this is very weird. it fails to untar the archive. are you on catalina? what does tar --version say?

can you try replacing this line in installer.sh and try again?
from tar xf bin/carla-git*.catalina.bottle.tar.gz -C /usr/local/Cellar to -> bsdtar xf bin/carla-git*.catalina.bottle.tar.gz -C /usr/local/Cellar

Yes, Catalina 10.15.5
tar – version
bsdtar 3.3.2 - libarchive 3.3.2 zlib/1.2.11 liblzma/5.0.5 bz2lib/1.0.6

if the above doesn’t work also try replacing with gtar instead of bsdtar

Brew installing gtar and replacing tar with gtar in line 60 of the installer.sh script?

Brew installing gtar and replacing tar with gtar in line 60 of the installer.sh script?

yeah

I have this problem brew installing gnu-tar:

Error: The following directories are not writable by your user:

/usr/local/bin
/usr/local/etc
/usr/local/sbin
/usr/local/share
/usr/local/share/doc

If I sudo brew install I get this error:
Running Homebrew as root is extremely dangerous and no longer supported.

Need to find another way to install gnu-tar.

successfully installed gnutar with macports;
receiving this error:

gnutar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

very weird. who has permission then?
here ls -l /usr/local tells me they’re all owned by alex:admin
did you have homebrew or macports installed before running the zrythm installer? sounds like a broken homebrew installation, or a clash with macports if it uses /usr/local

I’m not sure what’s wrong

This is a company Mac that locks down access to /usr/local/*
Is there a way not to depend on these directories?
I could install (open source) Blender3D on Linux, Mac and Windows without any issues. (The UI looks phenomenal and is super responsive.)
I’m not a developer, but would it help to check out their installation approach?

This is a company Mac that locks down access to /usr/local/*

that explains everything!

I’m not a developer, but would it help to check out their installation approach?

I have tried before, and Zrythm used to be a “normal” Mac Application, but it was very hard to debug if things went wrong and very frustrating to work with. Also, Catalina added additional restrictions that would break what was working at the time. I don’t want to go back to that at the moment, and I really wish someone with knowledge in Mac packaging would join the team. until then I think we should stick with homebrew so I can put more focus on development of features

Homebrew sounds like it could be installed anywhere (but not recommended):

Untar anywhere

Just extract (or git clone ) Homebrew wherever you want. Just avoid:

  • Directories with names that contain spaces. Homebrew itself can handle spaces, but many build scripts cannot.
  • /tmp subdirectories because Homebrew gets upset.
  • /sw and /opt/local because build scripts get confused when Homebrew is there instead of Fink or MacPorts, respectively.

However do yourself a favour and install to /usr/local . Some things may not build when installed elsewhere. One of the reasons Homebrew just works relative to the competition is because we recommend installing to /usr/local . Pick another prefix at your peril!

https://docs.brew.sh/Installation

I could give this a try

by the way, I don’t recommend installing Zrythm on your company computer (are you even allowed to?)!
