Target version:-
Chirp Version:0.4.0 Platform:MacOS
Model affected:(All models)


There are special instructions for working around application security in macos 10.9+ for chirp (http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/MacOS_Tips#Application-Security-in-109x). These directions are obsolete as of 10.12 (sierra). The UI access to this functionality is removed; you have manage the security system from the terminal.

To add an exception for a single program:

sudo spctl --add /Path/To/Application.app

To globally allow apps from any source:

sudo spctl --master-enable

I would have changed the wiki page directly, but I don't seem to have permissions for that.

Sorry, the platform should be macos, not windows. I can't update that field in the ticket.

Hi Neil, thanks for this. I just gave you wiki edit permissions and would be grateful if you can make the update for us.

Also: uncool Apple. Uncool.

I updated the wiki page: MacOS_Tips.

I can't close this ticket. Can you do so for me after checking the wiki update? Thanks.
