Mac version of vesc_tool works just fine.
I've been using vesc_tool on Mac without issue. Just install the full Qt5 library, git clone https://github.com/vedderb/vesc_tool and compile it.
Also, on Ubuntu you need the full Qt5 installation, not the default stripped down one.

Mac version of Vesc Tool
I was very happy with the old version of the BLDC tool. I can't manage to run the new vesc tool on mac.
I would really be happy to have some help.
I read erwincoumans message but I don't understand what compile means, I am not a programmer.
I also downloaded a Ubuntu version of the Bldc tool but it doesn't seem to run on the demo dvd.
Thanks for the answers.

To establish Bluetooth communication with self made android app
How's the data transmitted from mobile to Bluetooth module when we try to communicate with the board? Say user wants to move forward, does the provided android application in the website transmit data as "forward" in the form of strings to the Bluetooth module?
of course not! lol!
of course not! lol!
You would need to understand A LOT of the code than Benjamin made and based on your question you clearly don't. Download the source code for the vesc tool and try to understand how it uses the keyboard as input.
Computer doesn't recognize Esc
For some reason my computer doesn't recognize my Flipsky FSESC 4.20. evrything is plugged in and powered, ive tried 4 different usb cables, different ports, and also different computer. I feel like im missing a driver or something for it to recognize it? any help is much appreciated!
Flipskys are not built on high end components like a genuine VESC. I have scrapped 2 of 2 flipsky, 3 of 3 VESC are still pushing. I suggest for safety reasons to save flipsky for remote rc vehicles.
As far as plugging into them, for the short time they worked, windows update was able to locate all needed drivers to work with VESC tool.

For 3 months now I’ve been trying to compile the sources
For 3 months now I’ve been trying to compile the sources on both Windows and Ubuntu. All time, some kind of mistakes, something lacking. It is unbearable. Can someone make a project that compiles without without a "shamanic tambourine"?
Hooray, I finally compiled
Hooray, I finally compiled the source. I had to install Ubuntu 16.04 on Hyper-V (Windows10). The first time the commands were not executed. Complained about security problems (something like that). But at one point, after rebooting the OS, I put together the same commands from the instructions. And lo and behold, it has gathered. I am happy.
The source for installing the bar from here. https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/releases/xenial/release/ubuntu-16.04-ser...
First I set it to 19.04 by default (so Windows makes a normal virtual machine with a network, etc.), and then installed this image with disk formatting (virtual) on this virtual machine
