How to use Wii Remote on Mac OSX El Capitan
When I use Keynote or Power Point in my presentation, I wanted to use a remote control, but I didn't want to spend money to buy it. So I used Wii Remote. I use Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.3, and Macbook Pro Retina Early 2015.
P.S. DISABLED for macOS Sierra
I'm sorry but I usual use Japanese, so my English is may wrong. This is Japanese version. My Japanese is better than my English.

You don't have to do if you don't use OS X El Captain.
I disable "System Integrity Protection".

I have to use "recovery mode". To boot into recovery mode, restart your Mac and hold Command+R as it boots. You’ll enter the recovery environment. Click the “Utilities” menu and select “Terminal” to open a terminal window. (Photo is on Japanese version)
Type the following command into the terminal and press Enter to disable System Integrity Protection:

If you decide you want to enable System Integrity Protection, run the following command:
And then, you have to restart machine for the changes to take effort.
Connect Wii Remote with Mac
Usual, Wii Remote is connected with the core of Wii by Bluetooth. This time, I make that Wii Remote think Mac is the core of Wii. To do that, I use this software "wjoy".
To jump to download page, please click the image of wjoy↑. And you can download when you click "wjoy 0.7.1.dmg" in the download page.
When you start wjoy, wjoy says "We started:)" and wjoy check new version.
And then you will see this when you click mark of wjoy, so please click "Begin Discovery".
And push (1) and (2) button of Wii Remote.
If you could make connection, LED on Wii Remote is lighted. (1P)
Set up Wii Remote
You could make connection Wii Remote with mac by using wjoy. You can play some games, such as "Open Emu", but you can't use for Keynote or Power Point, so you have to set up Wii Remote.
This time, I use "Joystic Mapper". Please search in your Mac App Store.
Joystic Mapper(Link for App Store in Japan)
This soft is a pay app in Japan. (¥600)
There is free software "Enjoy2". (You download files immediately when you click Image or Link)
However, you can't control sticks on Nunchuk or Classic Controller by this software.
This time, I use "Joystick Mapper".
I think you will see this window when start Joystick Mapper.
And when you click "Add a new preset"....
You will see this window to set up new preset. Let's set up.
You click "Add a new joystic", and...
You will see this, so click "Add a new bind", and...
You wii see this.
In this status, please click "scan", and push a button on Wii Remote.
I pushed (A) button, and...
I saw this.
And then, you can set up using pull-down menu, such as "keyboard key" or "A".
I set up as this image↓.
To finish setting, please push red mark at the upper left of the window, and this window↓ will stay in your screen.
And then, please mack check for the check box, which is on the left side of "New Preset", for the changes to take effort.
In the End
Thank you for read this long article. I think English is difficult.
You can use Nunchuk and Classic Controller, if you use "Joystick Mapper".
