First, install protobuf and cmake:

$ brew install protobuf250
$ brew install cmake

Note: you need protobuf version 2.5 (not 2.6). You can check if it’s already installed with

$ protoc --version
libprotoc 2.5.0

Hops runs on JDK 1.8, so you should have that installed (download it here). However, due to some inconsistencies between Java version you’ll have to create a symlink like this:

cd /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_144.jdk/Contents/Home/
sudo mkdir Classes && cd Classes
sudo ln -s ../jre/lib/rt.jar classes.jar

You should now be able to clone the repositories and build the code.
