Deployment/build for Mac OS X

From terminal from root of app, run the deployment script

npm install


npm run build:mac

It creates a cache and a dist folder. cache is a folder used by deploy to keep the latest version needed to build and package the app, to avoid having to re-download it every time. While the packaged app ready for use can be found in the dist folder.

The build folder contains info needed for the packaging, such as background image for the dmg and logos.

This also packages the app as a dmg for distribution on os x.

Which uses appdmg to put the app from the build folder inside a dmg and save it on the ~/Desktop.

Preferences for appdmg script are in /appdmg.json.

can also package the app without the dmgand zip file.

npm run pack:mac
