Using GIT Version

The git repository will always have the latest version. It is only recommended for advanced users and programmers. It has the advantage of providing an automatic update button, unlike other versions of the program. To install it on your computer, first you must install and configure git. Once this is done, you can download PlayOnMac using the following command:

git clone https://github.com/PlayOnLinux/POL-POM-4
This command will download the program to your current folder. Consider making use of 'cd' before running the command to get to where you want the files to be downloaded to.
Unlike packaged installation, this method won't install PlayOnMac system-wide
On Mac, the easier way to use the development version is to first deploy a stable version of PlayOnMac, then to replace the /Applications/PlayOnMac.app/Contents/Resources/playonlinux folder with a clone of the git repository.
