An advanced battery gauge for macOS. Apple Juice can show you the estimated battery time remaining and notify you, when your battery charge hits certain percentages.
You can get even more information about your current battery status, without cluttering your screen, with the Apple Juice Today Widget. Just take a quick glance at your battery’s stats, whenever you want.
How do I install it?
Install Apple Juice from the published binary, by downloading the latest release and dropping it into your Applications folder.
Install Apple Juice using Homebrew, using the command
brew cask install apple-juice
You can also download the source code and build it yourself. You'll have to have Carthage installed, and run
carthage bootstrap, inside the project folder, to pull in the required dependencies.
Loosen Gate Keeper Restrictions
As I'm not paying for an Apple Developer Account, you have to allow unsigned third party apps within the system preferences, to run Apple Juice. To allow unsigned apps choose
System Preferences: Security: Allow apps downloaded from. If you don't have the option to select
Anywhereyou'll have to loosen the Gate Keeper restrictions by running
sudo spctl --master-disablein the Terminal. OSXDaily have a great step by step guide. Afterwards you should be able to select Anywhere.
Remove Quarantine Attributes
Alternatively you can remove the quarantine attribute from the downloaded application package, as suggested by henrycodebreaker in issue #18. By executing the following command inside your Terminal:
xattr -cr /path/to/Apple\ Juice.app.
Why does this project exist?
There are plenty of other solutions out there, so why make another one? I wanted an app that looks like it’s part of the system. As if it were built directly into macOS. Which can show me a lot of information, but only when I need them. And, most importantly, it should display notifications for several percentages. Since I haven’t found such an app, I made one myself.
How do I contribute?
You can fork this project, make your changes and send me a pull request. Make sure SwiftLint succeeds and everything is translated before submitting your pull request. Or, since the whole source code is licensed under the MIT License, fork Apple Juice and make your own thing. :-)
