This is work in progress.

Getting a native gtk

A lot of information can be found here: http://gtk-osx.sourceforge.net/

follow the instructions to get the gtk core up and running

$ jhbuild bootstrap
$ jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-bootstrap
$ jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-core

Building Bluefish with Makefile.osxapp

jhbuild shell
./autogen.sh
make -f Makefile.osxapp
make -f Makefile.osxapp install

Build with jhbuild (work in progress)

Building with a jhbuild configuration

a jhbuild section for bluefish looks like this:


<repository type="tarball" name="bluefish" href="http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/source/"/>
<autotools id="bluefish">
<branch module="bluefish-2.0.0.tar.bz2" version="2.0.0" repo="bluefish" md5="ac9b1e8ef6d5691718a0daa6c78d5618" size="3287346"/>
<dependencies>
<dep package="intltool"/>
<dep package="gtk+"/>
<dep package="glib"/>
<dep package="libxml2"/>
</dependencies>
<suggests>
<dep package="enchant"/>
<dep package="gucharmap"/>
</suggests>
</autotools>

or a section for SVN:


<repository type="svn" name="bluefish-svn" default="yes" href="https://bluefish.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/" />
<autotools id="bluefish-svn" autogen-sh="./configure" autogenargs="--disable-nls" >
<branch repo="bluefish-svn" module="bluefish/trunk/bluefish"/>
<dependencies>
<dep package="intltool"/>
<dep package="gtk+"/>
<dep package="glib"/>
<dep package="libxml2"/>
<dep package="ige-mac-integration"/>
</dependencies>
<suggests>
<dep package="enchant"/>
<dep package="gucharmap"/>
</suggests>
</autotools>

this section will fail the first time, choose 4 (enter shell), run

./autogen.sh

exit and choose 1 (rerun configure)


Creating a package

The quick and dirty way: open an existing Bluefish.dmg, convert it to writable dmg, copy the contents of the newly built Bluefish.app into the dmg, convert it back to compressed.

Some packages that should be installed (with jhbuild) as well:

shared-mime-info
meta-gtk-osx-themes 
gnome-mime-data
gnome-icon-theme
gtk-engines
tango-icon-theme

run the bluefish bundle

create a read-write image, copy Bluefish.app in there create a symlink in the root to Applications

Things To do

  • add a mime type for clojure
  • remove unneeded translations

Better MacOSX integration

in SVN is an initial start. The menubar is now properly integrated in the OSX menu.

what needs to be done:

  • open from the Finder
  • proper icon
