A OSX “single site browser” application, which at some point will be able to create new SSB applications that wrap specific web applications. Think Campfire, Twitter etc. The user can use Ruby to create event handlers to be able to support stuff like Growl, for instance, or whatever you can think off, as the user has access to Ruby libraries and Cocoa.
WebApp needs at least RubyCocoa 0.13.2, which can be acquired in the following ways:
Included on Mac OS X since version 10.5.2
Binary installer and source distributions: sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44114&package_id=36578
Note that if you wish to use a custom Ruby, not the default Apple Ruby, you will have to install RubyCocoa from source as well. See rubycocoa.sourceforge.net/GettingStarted for more info on this topic.
(Note: the author always uses RubyCocoa trunk and is not 100% certain that RubyCocoa 0.13.2 is enough, if so please let him know)
WebApp needs Rucola 0.5.1:
As a gem: $ gem install rucola
From source: github.com/alloy/rucola/tree/master
WebAppGenerator is the application which generates the single site browser applications.
WebAppTemplate is the actual single site browser application template.
Get the source: $ git clone git://github.com/alloy/webapp-app.git && cd webapp-app/
Initialize and update the growlnotifier submodule: $ git submodule update --init
Configure for, for instance, Campfire: $ cd WebAppTemplate && cp config/Info.plist.sample config/Info.plist
In config/Info.plist change the following keys:
CFBundleIdentifier: Substitute CHANGEME with the name of your app.
WebAppURL: Substitute with the URL of the web app that you want to wrap.
Build/Run her: $ rake
WebAppGenerator needs a build of WebAppTemplate prepared as an archive, simply run the deploy task: $ rake deploy
The deploy tasks will start the applications after building but before packaging to give you a chance to check if the build is really functioning. When you quit the application the packaging will continue.
