To unzip a file in MacOS simply double click the file, it will extract the contents into a folder.

Here, I double clicked the PhantomBot-2.4.2.zip file:

Yes. Now follow the rest of the directions on how to run PhantomBot from the Terminal for MacOS. If you skip right to the bottom, you just have to change how launch.sh works; note that you may have PhantomBot in a different folder than Documents. Be sure to access the correct folder that you downloaded to.

  • right-click launch.sh -> “Open With” -> “Other…” -> search for Terminal and select it -> check “Always Open With” -> hit “Open” Enable All Applications might have to be selected rather than Enable Recommended Applications
  • next time you wanna launch it: go to Documents/PhantomBot -> right-click launch.sh -> “Open” -> click “Open”
  • next time you wanna launch it: go to Documents/PhantomBot -> just double-click launch.sh

Beyond this, there is not much more I can say. We have provided steps that other folks have had success with implementing in MacOS.
