macOS C++ client for communicating with ROS

I couldn't find any good (let alone official) information on using roscpp for arbitrary clients. I'm new to ROS, but apparently, roscpp was intended to be used as a part of ROS ecosystem (is it called workspace?), even though official documentation says that it "...provides a client library that enables C++ programmers to quickly interface with ROS Topics, Services, and Parameters" which I read as "I can use this library in any of my C++ clients to communicate with ROS". However, it's not as easy as I expected it to be. I was able to compile roscpp as Android library (using this repo) however, I'm unclear on how to do it for macOS (the mentions I found are very outdated).

Hence, the question is, how one may use roscpp for a C++ client on macOS (or arbitrary for that matter) platform?
