I'm interested to know exactly what topics you were looking for that are missing, I'll take notes to make sure the information gets added eventually.

First off, thank you for your answer.
I’m looking mainly for user settings. And the flags I’m used to in the “official” OS.
Like the font sizes and the stack line numbers I don’t see anymore when not punching digits for example. Or displaying the date and time with seconds.

You need to build it from sources on your Mac. I don't have a Mac so I can't help much, but I imagine it shouldn't be too far from the instructions for FreeBSD.
If you can install Qt Creator on your Mac, you should be able to build newRPL without much trouble.
As far as the USB connection, I'm not sure what steps are needed to give a program access to the USB port on a Mac (perhaps it works out of the box like in Windows?).

My suggestion (cumbersome, but should work) would be to install VirtualBox on your Mac, then build newRPL Desktop on an Ubuntu VM. Alternatively, use a Windows VM and the prebuilt newRPL demo that's published. On VirtualBox is easy to "send" your USB device directly to the VM, I have tested it and works like a charm.
It's not the ideal solution, but will get the job done.

I have Parallels Desktop on my Mac running Win X. Maybe that’ll work... Very cumbersome, but I’ll give it a try. I admit I’d rather have a native macOS app. I’ll try Qt Creator as well if I find it.
I’ll let you know.

Thanks again.
