README

macosx-make-standalone

Modify a MacOSX app bundle to include non standard .dylibs, so it can be run without development environment

Installation

  • Requires Haskell (7.4.1 onwards)
  • Installs via hackage or from this source repo via cabal
    • Hackage: cabal install macosx-make-standalone
    • From repo: cabal configure cabal build cabal install

Manual

Invocation: macosx-make-standalone mac app bundle

Options:

  • see option --help, currently only verbosity and debug info dump

What is does, restrictions:

  • Copies all non /usr/lib .dylib files into mac app bundle/Contents/lib/.
  • Changes all references to the old library into refs to the copied libraries, in the mac app bundle/Contents/MacOS/app name as well as the copied libraries.
  • Resolves symbolic links of referenced libraries (thus not for mac app bundle).
  • In case of duplicate libraries ending up with the same copy name, an arbitrary one is picked (no problem if they are equal).
  • Can only be run once, i.e. is not idempotent.
  • Under the hood the development tools otool and install_name_tool are used, ensure that they are on the searchpath for shell commands.

Tested with

A single wxHaskell based application, on MacOSX 10.8
