I'm getting ready to try eclim (in the emacs version) on macOS Sierra, and I was reading some support posts and noticed that people are encountering bugs if Eclipse is not installed properly. I'm supposed to install it from a tar file rather than the GUI installer. But I can only find the Eclipse GUI installer. Is it still necessary or possible to install in some other way?

As of eclim 2.7.1, the eclim installer supports the disk layout from
the eclipse gui installer.

You can get to the eclipse tar files by clicking on the "Download
Packages" link on their downloads page:

I see.

I'm also trying to find an eclim download for macOS... all I see are "bin" files. Is there a macOS binary installer, or must it be built from source?

That .bin file works on any unix based system (OSX included).

Apologies then, for my lack of knowledge. How do you run a bin file on macOS? Clicking on it offered no available program. Am I supposed to chmod to +x maybe? Run it from the terminal?

yeah, make it executable and run it in a shell:
