If you look back up at the top, in the Idea description, the last item is a link to the discussion thread where the work is happening. Post there. For your convenience, I repeat that link here:

I would so much love to try Krokodove, but with no macOS version, I can't.

Does anyone know what would be involved in getting a macOS build? Is this something only the author can do? I'm unclear exactly how it works, what the structure is: does it use binaries, hence it needs compilation for each system?

I'm wondering if I should send the author a message via his website and ask him about the status and whether I could have a go myself to get it working. Or has anyone already tried that? I don't want to bother him if he's already given a statement on if/when macOS compatibility is expected.

Hey @TheBloke,

Raf (@KomkomDoorn) has already stated back in February when I contacted him that there are some issues with compiling the macOS version and he's working on it. I followed up but haven't heard back since then:

quote from email:
Hardware is fine.
It's the string library that's not very compatible and needs some
reworking... ;-)
Regards,
.raf

Ahh OK, thanks a lot for the info.

I won't bother him again then.

Well I just did when I included (mentioned) him in this convo ;) but a little push from another macOS user couldn't hurt.
