@Nexxie the log looks fine, are you getting 404 error when accessing http://localhost:7876/index.html ?
If so, what you need to do, is open a terminal window, cd to your NXT folder, if you used the installation defaults:
cd /Applications/NXT
Then invoke run.command from the terminal:
./run.command

Thanks Riker

I managed to put in the command lines, I guess.
It seems it is now downloading the blockchain and it will remain doing that for the next 224 minutes...
After that, then what?
This is way to complicated for the average Mac user...

Thanks

It's a bug ... to workaround it create or update the nxt.properties file in the conf folder and add the following setting:
nxt.apiResourceBase=./html/ui

I found the file but how do I update it? I can't even open it...

How long does it take for the blockchain to download? It keeps staying around 200 minutes, the log says...

thanks

And there we go again... After the terminal indicating it is downloading the blockchain by 719 blocks a time, again a whole afternoon, it started saying about unblacklisting for several times and stopped downloading the blockchain.
Again a lot of time waisted and still no client running..  >:(

on the bottom of the page http://www.peerexplorer.com you can download
a snapshot of the whole blockchain. Faster than the "719 blocks a time" way.

Then if you don't know where to put it, you can e.g. search your whole
computer for file & folder named the same, (perhaps make a backup)
and overwrite that with the contents of the archive.

Then, when you start NXT, it only needs to get a few hundred more blocks and you are synced.

(Actually, idea: That bootstrap download could be included as an opt-in into the installer)

Regarding the Mac installer. The current installer is a compromise between the tools Java provides and the user experience Mac users expect.

Please consider that the current installer has the following important advantages:
1. Packaged automatically from the development environment and is therefore fully reproducible by anyone which has a Mac directly from the source code
2. Digitally signed using the "NXT Stitchting" digital signature which allows it to be downloaded to any Mac without receiving scary installation warnings or having to add specific security exceptions
3. Bundles a Java distribution, therefore it saves users the joy of installing Oracle Java on their Mac

Currently we use the IzPack tool to generate a cross platform installer which is almost the same on Windows, Linux and Mac. But since this is a cross platform tool, the installed NXT package is incompatible with the layout of a Mac application and therefore has to rely on the same terminal commands used by the Linux distribution.
The installer package itself is packaged using the javapackager tool which converts it to a standard Mac DMG file.
This creates the strange effect that the installer itself is an application (NXT-installer) but the actual installed package is not.

Can we do better ? Perhaps
Is it difficult ? Very

Regarding the desktop wallet. I recently experimented with a Javafx tool which wraps a browser component using a Java container and can therefore open the wallet automatically like the Wesley installer. It almost works but has some limitations which makes it difficult to use. Still haven't gave up on this.

Regarding the rest of the problems,
Uninstaller - I'll look into the uninstaller issue but there is no reason not to just delete the NXT folder so there is really no need to use it.
Applications folder - Do you really have to install the nxt package itself to the /Applications folder ? Can't you just choose another package in the installer dialog ?
Double click on run.command starts an unusable wallet, this is a known issue that I intend to fix.

Thanks for the explanation Riker. You do great work, but I am just disappointed that I haven't got the Mac Wallet as I used it for 2 years (started by Wesley). That was just a one-click-app, nothing more. That was my main reason for Nxt. Easy-to-use. Hope someone will create this again.

I feel like a were send back 2 years in time. Is it safe the forge in the incognito-window of Chrome?

I'm working on a desktop wallet which is launched directly from the run command. This would eliminate the manual step of opening a browser to load the wallet and will probably open up the door for additional usability improvements.
Regarding the current Mac installation procedure, probably won't change soon. According to bitbucket only 4% of the package downloads are for nxt-installer-1.7.5.dmg so we need to prioritize.

You are always welcome to return. Your Nxt Mac Wallet was one of the reasons Nxt is the #1 crypto out there!  :-*

I've just noticed that the "compact.bat" isn't working right out of the box with the windows installer.
It fails because it can't find the path to java.exe, if you haven't installed a separate java runtime. The windows installer version brings it own java in a folder "nxt/jre" so you don't need to install the java runtime.

I think you need a wrapper around the compact call like in run.bat. I see the same problem with "mint.bat".

Nothing critical though.  ;)

The shutdown procedure in the windows installer version is error-prone.
If you shutdown by the systray option, the database is still busy while the systray icon is long gone:

Code: [Select]

2016-02-24 16:55:29 INFO: Database shutdown completed
2016-02-24 16:55:29 INFO: Nxt server 1.7.5 stopped.

There is a confirmation dialog for the shutdown. I've confirmed it at 16:55:13. Please note that the database shutdown is logged at 16:55:29. That's 16 seconds later (windows was quite busy).

Could the database become corrupted if I shutdown windows while the NRS is still closing?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

Release 1.7.5

https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads/nxt-client-1.7.5.zip



This version (and the last 3 versions) do not work on my version Mac OSX Mavericks. The app starts up, the blockchain updates after a few hours but it then hangs without opening the wallet. 6 or 7 hours later it crashes?

Tried everything, Terminal commands, Memory leak checks, re-downloading the blockchain, updated the Java plugin.

I unzipped the new version and updated the nxt-default.properties file an saved it as nxt.properties.  When I attempt to start the server, I receive this cryptic error message:

Code: [Select]

It seems to be saying that you removed/edited nxt-default.properties which you shouldn't do

You should simply leave the nxt-default.properties as it is, then create a nxt.properties file in the same folder and add your custom settings to that.

Quickest and easiest way to do this under Windows is to open nxt-default.properties, delete everything except your custom settings, then 'Save As...' to save the resulting file under the new name; nxt.properties

Oh good, desktop wallet :-) I was planning to return to build one, but seems I don't need to now :-)

I'm working on a desktop wallet based on JavaFX WebView which is a Java wrapper around webkit rendering engine.
The desktop wallet can reuse most of the existing wallet JavaScript/Html/CSS code, run in a separate frame and communicate directly with the server code using JavaScript to Java liveconnect.
It looks very much like the existing browser wallet and pretty much the same on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Alas, there are quite a few limitations that I'm trying to address. The biggest being that indexedDB is not supported. I'm trying to re-implement some of the indexedDB functionality using local storage and this is very time consuming.

The good thing is that the desktop wallet opens up various improvement opportunities like implementing a "Bitcoin like" multi-account wallet and getting immediate updates from the server about new blocks and transactions instead of polling.

I estimate that this wallet can be released on mainnet sometime in April.
