OK, this is difficult. Very difficult, and even more difficult to do well.

OS X apps run on Linux with Wine-like emulator for Mac software | Ars Technica:

Linux users who want to run Windows applications without switching operating systems have been able to do so for years with Wine, software that lets apps designed for Windows run on Unix-like systems.
There has been no robust equivalent allowing Mac applications to run on Linux, perhaps no surprise given that Windows is far and away the world's most widely used desktop operating system. A developer from Prague named Luboš Doležel is trying to change that with "Darling," an emulation layer for OS X.
Years of development are needed. Similar to Wine, "Having a list of applications known to be working is probably the best way to go," Doležel said.
