Please report back about compiling for Mac, I'd like to know if there are any problems. The simulator uses a third party library called HIDAPI, which is embedded in the simulator, so there's no extra dependencies, but I never built for Mac. From what I read there's no specific additional dependencies for Mac so I think it should just compile and work fine, but let me know.
I also don't know about permissions on Mac. Other Unixes/Linuxes need to specifically authorize the current user to read/write the USB devices directly, perhaps you need to investigate that for Mac as well.
For example, on Linux it needs the hidraw interface enabled in the kernel. This is included by default on all major distros on PC, but if you are perhaps on a Raspberry Pi or other smaller host it may not be enabled. On Linux it also needs now libudev, which again is present on all major distros, but in order to compile your simulator you need to install libudev-devel packages first. Please report back, if you need to take any extra steps to build on a Mac let me know and we can put it all on the wiki.
