I’d like to shine a light on Ohanaware App Wrapper which continues to get better and better.
Let App Wrapper take the chore out of application deployment. Once configured App Wrapper makes it super easy to prepare applications for App Store submission or web site distribution. And App Wrapper continues to be a part of Omegabundle for Xojo 2020.
App Wrapper takes care of adding the required App Store properties, creating high resolution icons, code signing the application and its components, correcting the permissions, placing the app into a App Sandbox and packaging it in a signed installer or creating a zip file.
Take advantage of Ohanaware’s hard work when packaging an application, that’ll make any application feel more consistent and more powerful, all with minimal effort on your behalf.
App Wrapper’s intuitive interface also includes support for creating a custom Apple About Box, adding UTIs & URL Aliases, supporting document packages, adding high resolution document icons, providing Apple compatible help books, container migration, cleaner apps by removing unneeded languages, outdated architectures or left over development junk files. All by clicking a few buttons in App Wrapper.
App Wrapper’s Xojo Script engine, is the latest iteration, creating much quicker to execute Xojo scripts; that can be integrated into Xojo projects, thus enabling Retina & Sandboxed applications during the development process, all while providing direct support for Xojo’s debugger. The result is a severally reduced development time as debugging Retina or Sandboxing issues, are now as simple as Command-R.
App Wrapper 3 includes “Pre-Build” scripts, allowing App Wrapper to inform the Xojo IDE where the intended application is to be deployed, thus making it easier to use one code base to build App Store apps and apps for hosting on a web site.
Some of the new features you will want include:
- Application Reports, providing detailed information on the app and its sub components.
- Cleaning functions for providing slimmer apps.
- Testing functions for Gate Keeper (without having to upload/download files)
- Installer testing and verification
- Faster Xojo Scripts & new Pre-Build script
- Brand new permissions correction engine
- New Version Number correction system
- Retina asset verification
