macOS: Compile Capstone from source

by on Feb.06, 2023, under News

As of now, only two architectures are relevant for macOS operating systems:

  • arm64 (apple silicon)
  • x86_64 (intel)

In order to compile capstone for these architectures, we proceed as follows:

git clone

cd capstone

mkdir build && cd build



As described in the file COMPILE_CMAKE.TXT we first disable all architectures in order to selectively add the ones we’re looking for afterward.

The CAPSTONE_X86_REDUCE switch will reduce the binary size of the X86 part.
