    When you say share, do you mean play in the same world at the same time? – Timmy Jim Dec 16 '16 at 21:03

    If what Timmy asks is true, Will your friend play at your house, or do you want to play together over the internet? – Robotnik Dec 17 '16 at 2:10

What you will want to do is make sure your friend is also on a mac, have him come over to your house and connect to your wifi then click open to LAN (Local area network) and ask him to go to multiplayer then after a few minutes it should come up.Click in the circled area


If you mean you want to play with them, then you can either meet at one of your houses and play on the Local Area Network, or you can get in to setting up a dedicated server. See setting up a server.

If you mean you just wish to send them a copy of your world to see, you can go to "~/Library/Application Support/minecraft" to access your save data and compress the world save folder to one file.

Please note that the Library folder is hidden by default on a Mac, so you'll need to access the folder using Finder's Go to Folder function (⇧ + ⌘ + G to access) and paste that location into the menu.
