Re: Gnumeric on Mac OS X

This is fabulous!

We tried reusing Gtk code for the OSX UI in MonoDevelop/Xamarin Studio and it was a big resource drain.

My recommendation is to embrace the platform and if necessary provide a glue layer inside Gnumeric to handle the menus and accelerators in a platform specific way.

I succeeded in packaging Gnumeric as a Mac OS X native application.
It has been built upon MacPorts libraries. I compile it inside the /tmp exotic path, allowing me to make the executable running from any location. I rewrote totally the shell script launching the application.
It works roughly well and it has support for Pure and databases (Berkeley DB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLCipher, SQLite, Web). It has Mac OS X native help support, but it is lacking of a native Mac OS X integration, such as global menus and shortcuts keys.
I am working thoroughly on it because it is a fast and powerful spreadsheet with great features all inside a simple GUI.
Despite those imperfections, I am certain some will be interested by it.
