Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Archiving an application for distribution, part of Cocoa Essential Training.
So how do you get your Cocoa Application to somebody else?…Let's say there are two situations here, first, the informal idea.…You have created an app, even a simple one, and you just want to run it on another…machine or even email it to a friend or colleague.…And then there is the formal idea, you have worked for months on your application,…and now you want to prepare it for distribution, either free or selling it…yourself or of course, on the Mac App Store.…Now we begin all of this the same way, by taking our project and archiving…it, and when we're in our project in Xcode, we find the Archive option from the Product menu.…
Now archiving might sound like an odd thing to do.…If you think of archiving, it's something you do to put some old files in…backup and forget about them.…But what we're trying to do is formally bundle our application up at a point in time.…An application archive for us is the application at a certain date in a…certain state, so we may end up creating multiple archives at multiple times,…
