This tutorial is fully compatible with the new Minecraft version 1.7.9.
It explains how to create a Minecraft server using the original method of a separate server app (i.e. not via the new in-game server). I will have a tutorial up on the new in-game server feature soon. Subscribe to be notified when I upload that!

This is a step-by-step tutorial on how to setup a Minecraft server on Mac OS X.

Download Links:
Java: http://danfl.co/QQEc
Minecraft Server & Client: http://danfl.co/QQUe

start.command code: 
cd "$(dirname "$0")"
exec java -Xmx1G -Xms1G -jar minecraft_server.jar

Terminal Permissions Code:
chmod a+x

To test your server in Minecraft, make sure you've started the start.command file, then click "Add Server" in the Multiplayer menu, enter a name, then for the address type "localhost" and click done. The signal bars should then turn green (only use "localhost" for testing on the same computer as the server). 
To connect from other computers on your local network, type in the server's local IP address instead.
