openFrameworks App and XCode tricks

  1. 1. openFrameworks XCode tricks
  2. 2. Add icon to app First download img2icns from http://www.img2icnsapp.com/
  3. 3. Add icon to app 1. Design your icon in i.e. Photoshop 2. Export it to png 3. Drag and drop it onto img2icns 4. Then click on the “Icns” button, select OF application directory and save the icon into i.e. the project directory.
  4. 4. Add icon to app 1. Open XCode 4.0x 2. From the menu select: View > Navigators > Project 3. Click on the project icon with the name “emptyExample”
  5. 5. Add icon to app 4. Click on the ”emptyExample” target and select the “Summary” pane.
  6. 6. Add icon to app 5. Drag and drop the icon you exported with img2icns from finder, into your project. When you drop the icon, this window pops up. I used these settings. The dropped icon will show up in your project panel.
  7. 7. Add icon to app 6. Now, drag and drop the icon from your project panel into the “App icon” area of the “Summary pane”
  8. 8. Add icon to app When you dropped the icon, a question mark appears. I think, you see this question mark because you still need to add a build phase, so lets continue...
  9. 9. Add icon to app 7. Click on the “Build Phases” pane and “Add Build Phase”. Select “Copy Bundle Resources”
  10. 10. Add icon to app 8. Now, finally, drag and drop the .icns file from your project panel onto the “Copy files” group which just showed up in your “Build Phases” pane. This will copy the icon to your application bundle.
  11. 11. Add icon to app When you click on “Summary” again, you’ll see the icon showing up where you previously saw the question mark.
  12. 12. Add icon to app You only need to recompile your application and the icon will be copied into the application bundle. You’ll see a nice icon for the application now.
  13. 13. What’s in a name I’m using a “Run script” to copy the compiled application to a custom application bundle so I can use my own application names. There must be an easier way, but this is a simple and quick solution which works. Note: make sure you first add your icon!
  14. 14. What’s in a name 1. Select the “Build Phases” pane, click on “Add Build Phase” and select “Add Run script”
  15. 15. What’s in a name 2. Copy and paste this script into the contents of the “Run script” group you just added. Here we create an application with the name “PhotoUnit.app”. Rename this to you whatever you want. appname=PhotoUnit.app if [ ! -d ] ; then mkdir -p $TARGET_BUILD_DIR/${appname} fi cp -r $TARGET_BUILD_DIR/$PRODUCT_NAME.app $TARGET_BUILD_DIR/${appname}
  16. 16. What’s in a name 2. The “Run Script” will look like this:
  17. 17. What’s in a name 3. Recompile and that’s it! Note that this will make a copy of your application.
