Mandelbulber for mac
|Mandelbulber for mac|
| from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/
"Mandelbulber is an easy to use, handy but experimental application designed to help you render 3D Mandelbrot fractals called Mandelbulb and some other kind of 3D fractals like Mandelbox, Bulbbox, Juliabulb, Menger Sponge"
I would like to build version 1.12.1 and version 1.13 and a version using openCL (https://mandelbulber.googlecode.com/files/mandelbulber1.09_opencl.orig.tar.gz). At the moment I don't have a mac ): so I hope somebody will help me to continue to distribute this software. Anyway one can download versions for OS 10.4 (powerPC and intel) and versions for 32/64 bit for OS 10.5+..my latest version is here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/files/mandelbulber-mac-1.12.zip/download.
I usually use macports to create the libs (GTK2) that are necessary to build mandelbulber, but it would be nice to create a proper bundle (maybe using GTK+ http://www.gtk.org/download/macos.php). Latest thing: even if not really necessary it would be nice to create a port for mac ports.
So far I was not able to upload the binary to sourceforge nor I know if I will be able to do it in the future, but it was possible to build a GTK version without X11. The Quartz version of GTK stuff was used then to build mandelbulber 1.16 (:
Building and bundling went fine; once jhbuild and gtk are installed, before I build, I set things this way using terminal:
PATH=~/gtk/inst/bin:~/bin:$PATH export CPFLAGS="-I$HOME/gtk/inst/include" export LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/gtk/inst/lib"
To create the app.bundle, once the binary is inside ~/.local/bin I just do:
~/.local/bin/jhbuild shell cd ~/.local/bin ./gtk-mac-bundler /Users/bermarte/mandendelbulber.bundle .
