As a user, my big request would be to make this a Universal binary. I don't know if there's a specific reason that the original isn't Universal, but G5-and-earlier machines still make up a large portion of the Mac installed base. Universal and 10.4.11 compatibility would make it so *I* could use the program.

Now that Sigil is using the new build system, providing universal binaries should be fairly straightforward. You should see this in 0.1.2.

I thought everybody knows about MacPorts - Macports is a distribution for Mac. MacPorts already distributes QT - so a MacPorts distribution of Sigil would not need to bundle the QT libraries.

MacPorts would sort that out as well as you would compile your own version for the CPU and Operating System you use.

Hi,

For MacPorts I need a short and long descriptions for tidylib and ZipArchive. That's because I need to make three different ports :-( .

Talking Done!

Hi,

I did get around all the problems after all and Sigil is now available for MacPorts compatible systems.

In the end I needed three portfiles: libtidylib, libziparchive and Sigil.

Of course you only have to install the last one - MacPorts takes care of dependencies itself.

See the MacPorts Homepage for instructions on how to install MacPorts.

Please don't separate ZipArchive and tidyLib from Sigil. These are not the upstream versions and should not be present on user's systems. They are only statically linked in to the main Sigil application.

I cannot provide you with descriptions for these libraries since I didn't write them, I only modified them.

I must say I cannot support the development of a MacPorts version, or its build system. The only build system supported is the provided CMake version. Anything beyond that, and I'm sorry to say but you are on your own.

It would be nice to have clear instructions on how to do that - as the sigil make not find the other libs. If the Wiki is wrong - better delete it because once I found the Wiki i stopped looking for other instructions.

MacPorts does not use it's own build system - MacPorts calls the build system provided by the developer and in the case Sigil that is cmake.

This is a very, very bad idea. What happens when someone uses those two libraries for something other than Sigil? And it breaks because of the changes made to them?

These libraries were never meant to be available on a system level. There will come a time when this will cause great harm to certain users.

The wiki instruction are for Linux systems, and they are very clearly labeled as such. They are not general build instructions.

You can find those in the INSTALL.txt file in the repository.

But I'm guessing you used the separate CMakeLists.txt files in each of the subdirectories, which you are not supposed to do.They are only meant to be loaded from the root dir CMakeLists.txt file that will descend to the subfolders and initiate specific builds.

You should learn CMake or follow the (correct) instructions more closely.

Wink Which instructions?

Hello,

Don't be upset about my mistakes. See them as a change to learn and improve documentation. I add a few so you know I am not all that serious.

Fine, I guess I have to remove them again .

which INSTALL.txt ?

Code:
/Volumes/Work/macports/editors/sigil/work/Sigil_code_0.1.1  Darwin  martin@macpro  Mo Aug 10 16:44:11  standart  0 
>gfind . -iname INSTALL.txt
/Volumes/Work/macports/editors/sigil/work/Sigil_code_0.1.1  Darwin  martin@macpro  Mo Aug 10 16:44:33  standart  0

Note that as a maintainer I only use the official release .

Ahh, I see you mean that one :

I have to say .txt is a great extension for a build file. You easily spot when close to COPYING.txt and ChangeLog.txt. . One would never think it is just another piece of documentation .

Now, again please don't be upset - I now it's your fault. The cmake guys should have known better then use .txt for a build script.

So I messed it up and I have to do it again .

Your second paragraph answers your first one: CMakeLists.txt is the name mandated by the CMake build tool. It's not something I can change.

Then again, having "CMake" as part of the name should make anyone at least curious enough to open it if they're using the CMake build system.
