Tasmotzier is still the best way to flash Tasmota in 2022. It is more feature-rich than the online flasher and way more simple to use than the command line flashing tools!
However there is a caveat for Mac users. You still need to use the Terminal to launch Tasmotizer, which does not always work for everyone, especially for newer versions of Mac OS (such as M1 Macs with Monterey).
Even for those who dare venture into the two dimensional world of the terminal and actually get it to run, it can be cumbersome when compared with the alternative of having a slick and simple app in the applications folder.
Well fear not! I decided to make it even easier for my fellow Mac users by packaging up Tasmotizer into a neat little app. Simply download the Tasmotizer app here and run it, no terminal necessary!
UPDATE for 2022 Now tested and working on Mac M1 with Monterey 12.4!

Problems Running Tasmotizer? Kick Gatekeeper’s ass
You may run into some problems with gatekeeper as this software is homebrew and not listed as built by a recognised developer.
If you encounter this error, firstly just click cancel to close this window. Next goto Settings > Security and Privacy on the main settings menu.
At the bottom you will see the note about Tasmotizer not being from an identified developer, just click Open Anyway and Tasmotizer will open. You should only need to do this once, then Tasmotizer will work normally.
Gatekeeper is great for protecting run of mill users from malware but if you are flashing stuff with Tasmota then it is likely you are smart enough with computers not to need it.
For us the Gatekeeper is just a nuisance. You can disable it all together with a simple terminal command and you won’t be inconvenienced again when trying to run downloaded apps.
