Issue

(In all examples, the applications are named appl1, appl2, ..., libraries are named libr1, libr2, ..., header files are named appl1_header1, appl2_header2, libr1_header1, ..., and there are auxilary files associated with application and library appl1_aux1, appl2_aux2, libr1_aux1, .... and some resource files associated with application and library appl1_res1, appl2_res2, libr1_res1, .... All versions are ver1, ver2, ...)

On Mac there are several different cases of combinations of bundles, frameworks, and unix tools.

The problem is that CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX is not enough. Also, when creating bundles and frameworks, auxilary files should be in the proper subdirectory structure.

Cases

Unix tools only

  • No issues (just like any other unix)

Bundle only

  • Everything in a same directory:
/Applications/
             appl1.app/
                      Contents/
                              Info.plist
                              MacOS/
                                   appl1 -> appl1-1
                                   appl1-1
                                   appl1_aux1
                                   appl1_aux2
                              Resources/
                                   appl1_res1
                                   appl1_res2
  • Suggested api:
ADD_EXECUTABLE(
  appl1
  MACOSX_BUNDLE
  appl1_src1.cxx
  appl1_src2.cxx
  ...
  MACOSX_BUNDLE_CONTENT
  apple1_aux1

  apple1_res2
  )

  PROPERTIES
  MACOSX_BUNDLE_LOCATION MacOSX
  )
SET_SOURCE_FILES_PROPERTIES(

  MACOSX_BUNDLE_LOCATION Resources
  )

Framework only

  • Everything in a same directory:
/Library/
        Frameworks/
                  libr1.framework/
                                 libr1     -> Versions/Current/libr1

                                         Current -> ver2
                                         ver2/
