Xvfb-Run on Os X

Headless Selenium + Xvfb + Chrome on OSX 10.11

Run Safari browser headlessly using xvfb on Mac

Mac OS X does not use X11 as the display server for native applications. As such, Xvfb is not applicable, and setting DISPLAY has no effect.

Mac OS applications cannot generally be run in the same sort of "headless" environment you're imagining here. Some applications, such as Vine Server, could do this in the past, but they appear to have stopped working under Mac OS 10.8 and later.
