OSX Merge packaging

Now we are complete. I guess. Maybe. OSX users can build an installer (a dmg) that
packages their script dir with their Shoes. In theory they, don’t need Xcode to do it. Here’s my Ytm demo app installer on OSX. First we have to click through the license.
osx-uela
and then we can drag my app to Applicationsosx-install

If your first reaction is “that is one butt ugly installer!”, then I agree with you. It’s butt ugly. for a purpose. Like exe-shoes and linux-shoes You, not me have to make it pretty because it’s your code and your users. All I did was give you some structure to work with to build your own installers for your own app for your own users.

I’m not going to do much more on Merge packaging for any platform because it’s not something I care deeply about. That’s your task if you accept it.

Take away:
You don’t have to build Shoes from source and install the dev tools to build a ‘Real app’ and an custom native installer for it that hides Shoes. You have been empowered!
