Re: A question about development environments for Kicad...
You can run it from build directory also on macOS, no need to install (I do this all the time).
You have to run the project manager (=> kicad.app) and eeschema, pcbnew, etc. from there.
Running standalone binaries won’t work.

On MacOS I do have to run make install like you say, but then can debug things from my temporary install directory. What do you mean by edit interactively, though?

This might seem an inconsequential query, but I have a good reason for asking. As far as I can discern (and I am hoping you guys can help clear this up for me) the current project structure doesn't seem to lend itself to the normal edit, build, debug cycle. At least as far as I can tell. The built executables won't execute in place with them in their corresponding project directories...that is to say, Kicad will execute but it can't instantiate eeschema because it can't find all the libraries. I am currently performing a make install, to a local directory, to keep from corrupting my working installation, and I can debug from there but I can't edit interactively since the embedded .elf code isn't the original source. Can someone clear this up for me?
