I haven’t tried Alberto’s method but the one thing I am quite confident you are getting is a simpler way to create a standalone that takes just a few minutes. I personally find it a more elegant design but its my project so my opinion doesn’t count
I would be curious if there are any advantages using the other method so do let me know if you end up using it.
I couldn’t use your method because I don’t know how to use Platypus So there you have one major drawback. Maybe not so relevant to a lot of you with programming skills, but def a no go for us who are not very skilled at programming.
Ah, in the end use the method that suits you best of course Having said that, I am a bit confused by your comment as Platypus does not require any programming at all. I have provided instructions of the few steps necessary. Could you tell me in which step you got stuck so I can make the instructions clearer?
To tell you the truth, I didnt even try that, bc it seems that your method doesnt resolve my main issue: the standalone is too many MB. When I made one in SC about 10 years ago, it was 16MB. With the new methods (yours and DeCampos), standalones are overt 200MB…That’s the main showstopper for me…
Ah, no worries. I think the main issue in terms of size is the QT frameworks folder. Maybe you can make one of the the standalones work without them (as long as you don’t need a GUI) though I am not sure.
