System requirements

Pinegrow is available for Windows 10, macOS 10.14, 10.15 and 11 (Intel only ATM) and Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS.

Windows 10

Although it is known that Pinegrow may work flawlessly with previous versions of Windows, we now test each release of Pinegrow with Windows 10 only and we provide support only for this version of the system.

macOS  10.14, 10.15 & 11

Although it is possible that Pinegrow may work flawlessly with previous versions of macOS, we now test each release of Pinegrow with macOS 10.14 (Mojave), macOS 10.14 (Catalina) & now macOS 11 (Big Sur) and we provide support only for these versions of the system.

Does Pinegrow run on Mac M1s?

From our recent tests, Pinegrow works fine on Apple M1 powered computers.

The first run takes a minute or so because the operating system is recompiling the app. Subsequent runs are quick.

Important: Pinegrow should not be run directly from the DMG because it gets compiled every time it is run. So it should be copied to Applications or similar which is the standard way with Mac apps.

Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS

Although it is possible that Pinegrow may work with previous or future versions of Ubuntu Linux, we now test each release of Pinegrow with Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS only and we provide support only for these versions of the system.

Despite that, Pinegrow might still work on your system. The best approach is to try the trial version. If that works fine, it’s 99% certain that everything will be fine. In case not, you’re covered by our 30 days money back policy.

Requirements for WordPress Themes Development

If you plan to build WordPress themes with Pinegrow PRO/WP or Pinegrow Theme Converter for WordPress, you will have to install and configure a Web development environment (a webserver, a database engine and WordPress) on your own computer.

Please consider using our favorite solution: Local.app from Flywheel. It is available for Mac and PC. (and it’s FREE)
