Installing Hiri on Mac can be tricky depending on what version of OSX you have installed. Since the launch of Sierra, Apple are discouraging users from installing 3rd party apps by making it difficult to do so. You can read why here. But there's a work around. Read on...
Mac OS High Sierra (latest release)
- Open the Terminal
- Enter this command
sudo spctl --master-disable
- Enter your system password (this is the password you use to login to your mac).
- At the time of entering the password it won't show text but hit return key.
- Go to system preferences > security and privacy and general tab. > you'll see an Anywhere option (see below example - works like Sierra when you run this code).
Mac OS Sierra or older
Step 1: In your macOS security preferences, you'll need to enable launching apps downloaded from `Anywhere`.
Go to Preferences → Security & Privacy → Allow apps downloaded from: select Anywhere.
Step 2: Go to our downloads page and download `Hiri.dmg`
Double-click on the file when it is downloaded.
Step 3: Drag Hiri into the Applications folder.
Step 4: Once it is installed (i.e. the copying has completed), you can launch Hiri using Spotlight.
Note: if the application doesn't start the first time you click on it, you might have to right click on it in the Applications folder and select Open. Or just try spotlight a second time.
