Portable Calibre for Mac?
I want to gift a usb drive with a fully functional portable Calibre on it for my sister who has a Mac laptop provided by her school.
They don't let her install anything, which is why it would need to be portable. Plus then she doesn't have to figure out how to set it up and I could do all of it for her.
Is this even possible? Please let me know.

You should be able to cook up a script that does this using the
CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIR environment variable described here:
You would likely need to have your script automatically set that variable in the Info.plist files inside the calibre.app bundle and then start calibre. Or you can just set the environment variable and then use the command line calibre.app/Contents/MacOS/calibre to launch calibre, but that may have some other side-effects siec you wont be launching the bundle.
