CMake compiler for macOS build not found

Issue:
Hello, I’m trying to build citra on macOS by following directions/tutorial on Building for macOS (https://github.com/citra-emu/citra/wiki/Building-for-macOS). Have brew, have all dependencies, have Xcode. The problem begins at the building project files step. Input cmake … -GXcode in terminal (where I did everything so far) leads to this:

Computer-Name:build User$ cmake … -GXcode
– The C compiler identification is unknown
– The CXX compiler identification is unknown
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:36 (project):
No CMAKE_C_COMPILER could be found.

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:36 (project):
No CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER could be found.

– Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

type in gcc and you should get a popup prompting you to install the xcode command line tools (which for some ungodly reason doesn’t get installed when you install xcode… macOS pls)

it should look something like this

Yeah, you need this. I have it and worked as charm.

I typed that in and i got back:
clang: error: no input files

It’s been a few months and I scoured the internet for a solution. I finally found the answer to this problem here: (https://github.com/nodejs/node-gyp/issues/569#issuecomment-255589932), and resumed building according to macOS directions (https://github.com/citra-emu/citra/wiki/Building-for-macOS) resuming at Using CMake.

I hope no one else runs into the same problem and ends up spending months trying to fix it when it had such an easy fix haha.
