Overview bashapp takes as input a bash script and generates a binary executable and OS X application directory structure. This allows developers to provide Finder clickable bash scripts without terminals popping up, etc. Useful for launch, service scripts, etc. It also provides simple source encryption as a means to obfuscate the bash script. You can specify your own key, or let bashapp generate a randomly sized random key for you, no fewer than 32 bytes long. (Note: it's recommended to let bashap create the key for you since every time you compile, it will create a new, pseudo-randomly generated value of variable length.) Compiling Type the following command in the Terminal to compile gcc bashapp.c -o bashapp Using bashapp Usage: bashapp -k <key> -i <icon> PATH_TO_BASH_SCRIPT APPNAME E.g. Create 'MyApp' with the default encryption key: bashapp script.sh MyApp Create 'MyApp' with your own key: bashapp -i s#ZcrE33t script.sh MyApp Create 'MyApp' with your own icon: bashapp -i someicon.icns script.sh MyApp
