Installing Erlang on Mac OS X

Published: 01 Oct 2009

I've recently been intrigued by RabbitMQ which is an implementation of AMPQ (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol) written in Erlang. Here's the short and sweet installation instructions for Erlang on Mac OS X:

  1. Download the most recent release from here.
  2. tar -xzf otp_src_R13B02-1.tar.gz
  3. cd otp_src_R13B02-1
  4. ./configure
  5. make
  6. sudo make install
