Developing with Apple Silicon

In software development, certain software were not designed to run on the ARM-based Apple Silicon. Thankfully, there are workarounds to install and run the Intel version of these applications. Like for the rest of this blog, this post aims to serve as a personal notebook and also for sharing this knowledge.

When I started looking into solutions to my Macbook Pro M1 challenges, a huge chunk was solved when I had read Ekaterina Nikonova's excellent blog post on Python virtual environments with pyenv on Apple Silicon.

This blog post is heavily influenced by her approach of setting up the app and app86 versions for apps which might need both native and emulated treatment.
