⚠️ Project Status: maintenance mode (bug fixes only).

At the moment, we will not implement nor accept pull requests implementing new features in this repository.

We’re currently reworking the internals of our macOS and Windows desktop apps, and we plan to release the refreshed apps soon. If you’re interested in trying the app now, take the beta version for a spin. For more information, please visit the macOS or Windows feedback repository.

By default the app builds for testing server. To use the compiled app with live server see this guide



  • macOS 11+, Xcode 12.2+ and Swift 5+
  • Install Bundler
$ sudo gem install bundler


# Prepare cocoapod
$ make init_cocoapods

Run bundle exec pod repo update in case there is an error about out-of-date source repos (some pod version is missing).

  • Open workspace at src/ui/osx/TogglDesktop.xcworkspace
  • Select TogglDesktop scheme and build.



You'll need these Qt (at version 5.12 or higher) modules: QtWidgets (with private headers), QtNetwork, QtNetworkAuth, QtDBus, QtX11Extras

If Qt is not installed from your distribution's package manager, you will need to set the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH environment variable to point to the lib/cmake folder in the Qt version you wish to use.

These dependencies are mandatory:

  • libXScrnSaver (libxss-dev in deb-based distros and libXScrnSaver-devel in rpm-based)

You can install them all in debian with a command:

 $ sudo apt install libxss-dev build-essential libgl-dev libreadline-dev

These dependencies are optional and will be bundled if the USE_BUNDLED_LIBRARIES CMake argument is set or your system does NOT have their development packages installed:

  • POCO
  • Lua
  • jsoncpp
  • Qxt

These libraries will be bundled regardless of your system:

  • bugsnag-qt
  • qt-oauth-lib

Build the app

in the toggldesktop source tree root

mkdir -p build && pushd build             # Create build directory
cmake ..                                  # Setup cmake configs
make -j8                                  # Build the app. The number defines the count of parallel jobs (number of your CPU cores is a good value for that)
./src/ui/linux/TogglDesktop/TogglDesktop  # Run the built app


Install Visual Studio 2019 with .NET desktop development, Desktop development with C++ and Universal Windows Platform development components checked during installation. You can download free Visual Studio Community here.

Then open the solution file src\ui\windows\TogglDesktop\TogglDesktop.sln and run it in Debug mode.

The solution is using OpenSSL binaries. To rebuild OpenSSL from sources refer to this page.
