You can use emulators such as WineHQ/VmWare Fusion/Parallels Desktop

A web version was underway but development is suspended for the time being. If there is enough of you out there on macs and wants to the portal, let me know.

I'd love to be able to use the portal for mac too. Loved it when I had PCs. Now I'm a Mac user and miss it a lot.

Hmm. I shall see. The code is currently there but it's not as intuitive as the neomallers portal. Maybe i can do an early release for those already using neomallers portal and go from there

The biggest obstacle is security. Because we are accepting user input that is actually stored into the server, there are many potential security risks that i have to consider.

The other issue is performance but I think I figured out how to reduce the number of writes to the database. (usually, it will become intensive if a couple of people are processing thousands of items to the database at the same time - same reason why avatar.starried limited that kind of stuff to 2 times a month
