Diffusion Bee 1.0: Easy to Install Stable Diffusion for Apple Silicon Macs

Divam Gupta:

Diffusion Bee is the easiest way to run Stable Diffusion locally on your M1 Mac. Comes with a one-click installer. No dependencies or technical knowledge needed.

Runs locally on your computer no data is sent to the cloud (other than request to download the weights and checking for software updates).

Stable Diffusion is the hot new AI image generator that you can download and run on your own computer. It’s been a bit tricky to get running on Apple Silicon Macs, because (among other factors) the Python situation is complex. Diffusion Bee makes it as easy as downloading a disk image and copying an app to your Applications folder.

Be warned if — like me — you have a busy week ahead. These AI image generators can be a real time sink.
