Re: [hatari-devel] Hatari macOS builds - handover need?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I'm a normal macOS user. I know how to use .zip or .dmg  to install .app / .prg 
But I prefer .dmg to install .app/.prg. That is just my preference !
On AppStore it seems me all applications are given in .dmg form.

Yes - installation. For a macOS user a zip file isn't very helpful.

Why? Is it too cumbersome for a normal macOS user to extract ZIP file??

A .dmg will pop up a window with files laid out in some nice grid and a
helpful way of copying the app into the Applications folder. It makes the
macOS Hatari a "proper macOS app".

Apart from the nice grid, what's the advantage? The creation of the dmg
file looks way more cumbersome than just creating a zip? Does this help to
avoid the problem with the quarantine flag?
