Brad’s Spin Tool (more commonly referred to as BST) is a multi-platform development environment for the Propeller chip, created by Brad Campbell. This IDE provides Mac users the opportunity to program the Propeller without the need to run a virtual machine. Included below is a brief tutorial on downloading the application (offsite), installation, and how to customize the IDE so it closely resembles the Propeller Tool from Parallax. BST is compatible with Linux and both Intel and PowerPC OSX 10.4, 10.5 & 10.6.

Parallax discussion forums contain an extensive thread with additional information about BST.
Before installing the application, it’s important to install the latest serial adapter driver from FTDI. The Parallax USB to serial adapter uses the FT232R chip, and the corresponding driver can be downloaded from http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
