I tried to setup ipfs on El Capitan yesterday. I stalked the OS X Homebrew FUSE package, mounted ipfs and it immediately fails complaining too many file descriptors are being used.

ipfs is awesome, but I want to first be able to mount it as the file system :-)

I haven't tried using IPFS, but the default ulimit setting on OS X is tragically low. You might want to try bumping it up.

I tried - increased it to unlimited and it still had the same error :-(

I have zero knowledge of Go, so not even sure how to start troubleshooting.
