We have a new version 2.14 that runs on OS X High Sierra. You can give it a try: https://catlight.io/downloads 

However, new version is not compatible with old versions of OS X like 10.11, 10.10 and 10.9.


We identified the problem. Mac OS 10.13 had a breaking change, so our version of .Net core can no longer run on it. 

We'll post an update when this problem is solved.

Glad to here you're on it! Thanks!

Can you send us the logs to support@catlight.io ?

They are located at:

~/Library/Application Support/Catlight/logs

This is a hidden folder, but you can open it using "Go to" menu item in Finder
