You can grab the latest disk image from the Launchpad download area of Bazaar. It should be signed by Szilveszter Farkas (F1D076A3).


Mount the downloaded disk image (double-click it in Finder). Double-click the Installer icon titled Bazaar 1.12. Just click through the steps, and you can get ready to use Bazaar: start up your Terminal application, and use the bzr command. You can access the documentation without installing Bazaar: just open up the Bazaar Documentation folder on the disk image.


There's an experimental script available on Launchpad that you can use to uninstall everything that the Installer put on your computer.

Bazaar Mac Uninstaller

Please report any bugs, or file feature requests on Launchpad.


This is the first try for a Bazaar installer on the Mac. If you find any glitches, please report it either on the main Bazaar mailing list, or directly to me (SzilveszterFarkas).

Missing features

  • Evaluate more plugins to be included with the installer.
  • One-click uninstall feature.
