Building for OS X

Hello,
I want to build an application bundle for OS X.
Regarding the setup command

python setup.py osx

This appears to invoke vmware to run a virtual machine. What is being run here?
Also, what is the role of the freeze commands?

You cannot build an OS X bundle directly from the source code. If you want to build calibre from source, I suggest using a linux vm. Building calibre on OS X/windows is a highly non-trivial excercise.

Hi Kovid.
I'm building under a linux VM, as the docs were quite clear on that (yes, someone read the docs). Building for a linux target via setup.py is working fine.

> You cannot build an OS X bundle directly from the source code

Is this to say there are steps that are not encapsulated in a step in setup.py? Is it being done by hand?

Yes. You need a properly setup OS X environment to be able to build calibre, which must be setup by hand.

Thread Moved. The development thread is for calibre development not OS builds.

Thanks for clarifying the situation, Kovid.

It's true that I never mentioned here that I was modifying code. Otherwise I would have no reason to want to build Calibre, though.

A little backstory: I suggest Calibre to users of dslibris (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndslibris/), a book reader for the DS, since they need to use EPUB. Using Calibre myself on OS X, I started playing around with a prototype that follows the Apple idiom for the application menu. Having partially done that, I wanted to embed the changes into a bundle, without lookasides to a development area. So in this case it's no biggie to not be able to build an app bundle.

Now, I would sign on to documenting what the OS X build platform prerequisite is, and ways to possibly streamline it, but that would require some initial explanation from someone.

--cheers, ray

If you wish to modify calibre code there is no need to build calibre, follow the instructions here: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/develop.html

Yep, read that. I was serious about having read the documentation.
