I'm trying to find help to get the GWD running on an up to date mac, it's currently 12/30/17 and the app just crashes when trying to open.

I have an updated java runtime enviroment and made sure to get the jdk also, I've tried uninstalling and re-installing but the GWD won't even open it just closes itself.

The watch.log just repeats the following text.

INFO [12/30-19:17:51,429]( - Listening to: 9000
INFO [12/30-19:17:51,433]( - Application path: /Applications/GearWatchDesigner/

Try following the soluitions on this thread and note that you cannot use Java version 9 on Mac to run GWD.
