I created an applescript that ran
Then I saved that applescript as an "Application"
Then I right clicked on that application and clicked on show contents and put the runtime in there and told the applescript to open the runtime.
All done!! Now I have a single executable icon like iPhoto etc. are with all the files bundled inside.
Interesting, would be great to have this functionality built into fmpa
but you have the data of the user inside and here the problem starts ...
exchanging the program via update will eliminate the users data
deleting the program will delete the users data too
the whole thing is not conform to Apple´s guidelines, nor to normal expectations - there has to be no user data in the program itself nor in the program folder
Good points, for my solution however this single app approach works. I already have external data that it works through.
I guess an alternative approach would still be to bundle the entire thing in the .app except for the filemaker data file. That app should go in the documents folder.
