Before compiling Celestia, you must obtain the source code. The very latest source code is kept in Celestia's GitHub repository. You can get the source code by following these instructions:
- Open Terminal
- See if Git is installed on your system. Type "git" in the terminal (without the quotes.) If you get a "command not found" error message, you need to install Git. See this guide for information on installing Git on Mac OS X.
- Type, or paste in:
git clone https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia.git
- Wait for a while, until the download is complete.
cd Celestiaand follow instructions from https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/blob/master/INSTALL.md
