MacGap generator

MacGap is a lightweight WebKit wrapper for HTML apps, allowing you to distribute web applications as desktop apps.

For more information on MacGap, please see its repository.


gem install macgap

# macgap new DIR
# macgap build DIR

For example, to create a new MacGap app use the new command:

macgap new MyApp

To build a MacGap app use the build command, specifying the app's directory.

macgap build MyApp


Or a more advanced example:

macgap build --name MyApp --output ./build ./public

The directory (DIR) you specify should contain a file called index.html which will be loaded when the application starts.


If the your application's root directory contains a file called application.png, that'll be used as the application's icon.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
