I'm looking to use a debugger on my macOS to step through the process of mining. It would me better understand the programatic process of what the miners are doing.

I have a single small GPU on my mac. I tried building ethminer from the source and running in Xcode but my GPU doesn't have enough memory.

Does anyone know if I can somehow use a smaller DAG or is there another simple tool to help me do this?

Start a local development chain

The easiest way to do this is to create a small local development chain that only you are participating in.

That way you'll be guaranteed to mine the blocks, and you won't have to GPU mine to participate.

Upgrade your GPU

The other thing you could do is to get an external GPU (google eGPU) for mining and connect it to Thunderbolt / USB-C.
