Can Somebody Compile an OSX of a Simple GUI?
« on: February 24, 2008, 04:19:47 am »
I have created a very simple GUI for a program called ZiPhone (it is used to unlock iPhones).

ZiPhone runs on Win32 and OSX.

My application has been tested to run on Win32.

But i would love someone to compile a OSX version.

It is just a SHELL that uses AProcess to run ziphone.exe (in windows), and should do the same in OSX.

Here are the screen shots.

Here is the link of the source http://rapidshare.com/files/96752189/eZiPhone11.rar.html

And here you can download ZiPhone for OSX http://www.downloadziphone.org/

Can somebody check my code so it also works with OSX, and send me a compiled version?

Thanks.

If you're going to distribute a version for Mac, you'll need access to a Mac. Simply compiling it (PowerPC? Intel?) isn't enough. You'll want to create an icon for your app bundle, installer, etc.

This is why i'm asking for help. I would like to have this simple app compiled for OSX. But i don't have a mac.

Intel.

I don't want to create an installer/icon/etc, if possible.

For example, the windows version, we just uncompress the zip to a folder and double click on eziphone.exe.

Can not do that on OSX?

Thanks.

Just an update, the code is VERY SIMPLE. VERY.

I just don't have a MAC to check.

There are a lot of MAC guys that would BENEFIT from this.

It's all free.

Anyone can take a look?

Well, life ain't that simple. Getting contributors for an open source project isn't easy. I develop the Virtual Magnifying Glass, with more then 100.000 downloads each year, and even then it's hard to get code contributions. Translations and just building, without developing anything, is easier.

My tips for you are:

* Put the project on source forge, it's free and will call attention to it and showing you are commited with it's open nature
* Make a nice website for it, possibly using the source forge structure
* Make the code accessible on the subversion of your source forge project page, this will make it's development transparent
* On Source forge you can post a announcement asking for someone to port the project. I've already posted several for the magnifier, some were answered, others not.
* Try to announce your project on adequate places, where this is permitted to get people to know about it.

Just saying this is easy and will help a lot of people isn't enougth to get developers. There are lot's of useful projects out there without developers.

Kwanbis; I'd love to compile it but I can't get Lazarus to run properly :( - Sorry :(
(Leopard/Carbon compiled - Linking fails)

Sekel, thanks for your time on replying.

But to be honest, the project is DUMB-SIMPLE.

It has only one function:

Code: [Select]
procedure Ejecutar(commandline: string);
var AProcess: TProcess;
begin
   AProcess := TProcess.Create(nil);
   AProcess.CommandLine := commandline;
   AProcess.Options := AProcess.Options + [poWaitOnExit];
   AProcess.Execute;
   AProcess.Free;
end;


That just runs whatever is passed to it.

And then i have 6 buttons, that call that function like this:

Code: [Select]
procedure TForm1.bDFUmodeClick(Sender: TObject);
var cmd: string;
begin
  cmd := 'ziphone.exe -D';

  if MessageDlg ('ATTENTION', 'I''m about to execute:'+#10 +#10 +cmd+#10 +#10 +'Are you sure?', mtConfirmation, [mbYes, mbNo],0) = mrNo then Exit;

  Ejecutar(cmd);
end;


Now, i know that cmd would be  'ziphone.exe -WHATEVER' in windows, but would it be the same in OSX? 'ziphone -WHATEVER'? And how do i check if i'm running on OSX or Windows?

I need to do something like:

Code: [Select]
if WIN then
  cmd := 'ziphone.exe -WHATEVER'
else
  cmd := 'ziphone -WHATEVER';


I can change that, which is very simple.

But after that, i need somebody to compile eziphone for OSX for me.
