Nextion Editor 0.58 on Mac / Linux

I finally got this working on macOS Majave under Wine.

  • macOS Mojave 10.14.6
  • wine-4.0.2 (stable)
  • Nextion Editor v0.58

The steps I followed that ultimately worked are:

  1. Install Wine Stable 4.0.2 from DMG
  2. Install cabextract using homebrew (needed for winetricks):
    $ brew install cabextract
  3. Install winetricks
  4. Use winetricks to install .NET 3.5 SP1.
    $ winetricks dotnet35 dotnet35sp1
    I sort of followed these instructions. I had already installed Mono, so I had to first start with a fresh wine prefix. It also took me two tries for some reason. So if it fails just try install it again. :man_shrugging:

I was also able to expose my serial port to wine by using regedit to map /dev/tty.ABCDEF to COM1.

It works well! I can edit the HMI files, compile them, upload them to a screen over serial, and even debug a screen over serial. Hope that helps some mac/linux users!

Note to admins: I had to omit a bunch of helpful links in the above because my new account is restricted. Mind increasing the trust on my account?
