We currently have experimental support for HHVM installations on Mac OS X 10.12 and greater. We use an official Homebrew formula.
brew tap hhvm/hhvm brew install hhvm
This will install binary packages on recent versions of MacOS (as of 2017-11-08, this means Sierra and High Sierra). If binary packages are not available (or you pass
--build-from-source), building will take between 20 minutes on a Mac Pro, to several hours on a MacBook Air.
We also sporadically make "preview" releases, also with binary packages. You can install them with:
brew unlink hhvm # if you have HHVM installed brew tap hhvm/hhvm brew install hhvm-preview
We hope to replace
hhvm-preview with nightly builds in the future.
