I decided today to finally get the release version of Chandler using it's own repository so that I can keep it up and start dogfooding it more.
I followed the instructions that Aparna had written up http://wiki.osafoundation.org/bin/view/Journal/AparnaKadakia20051006
, but I didn't like having to start chandler via a shell script.
I started hacking at the RunPython?
scripts to set the PROFILEDIR instead of a seperate script so that I could just execute the .app but they didn't work.
Then I realized that the .app has a MacOS directory that tells OS X how to execute the application in the Resources directory and editing that worked.
So the directions are;
For those that don't use vi or emacs you can;
Download the chandler.app, right click on it in the finder and select "show package content".
Go into Contents/MacOs and right click on ChandlerApp, and select Open With -> TextEdit.app
Below the first line containing #!/bin/sh add the lines;
you can replace /Users/mikeal/Library/Chandler with wherever you want to keep your repository.
Any other chandler.app you download or if you run chandler from svn update ; make install it will use the default repository location.
