Xpra on MacOS does not use X11 at all, so XQuartz is not needed.

The shadow server should start, but it hasn't been tested on Mojave and
I have heard that some new "security" mechanisms may be getting in the way.

The best way would be to install the PKG, if possible, then run the
server by hand:
Xpra shadow --bind-tcp= --no-daemon
Keep an eye on that server log output and try to connect with a browser
on that port.
