[b][u]AppBuilder v3.1 released[/u][/b]
Here is the project web page :
project page 
where you can read all the details.
AppBuilder is a tool that can drastically increase your Hollywood-MAL
productivity, infact, with AppBuilder, you can compile and pack your
cross-platform projects with a single click without bothering with long shell
In a standard environment, if you want to target multiple platforms and you are
making use of plugins, you would have to build your executables and manually you
have to pack them including the right plugin for every targeted platform. This
process is extremely boring but worst part is that it can lead to mistakes
copying the wrong plugin for the targeted platform or putting it in the wrong

If you often build your applications for multiple platforms this utility is a
must have!

With a easy to use interface this app let you select for which platforms you
want to build, let you set up your main source and what Hollywood plugins your
application needs: AppBuilder will manage for you all the boring tasks like
copying the correct plugin version in the correct target platform folder.

Additionally AppBuilder can manage for you your application resources, just tell
AppBuilder which resources must be included with your application and it will
copy all of them in the right folders, MacOS application boundles are also
handled, MacOS .app bundles will be managed by AppBuilder with no efforts from
the user.

AppBuilder can also manage external data: with external data I mean data that
must be included with your distribution but that is not essential to run your
application, and should be placed outside the main application folder.

Think about a “readme” file, or documentation files : setting these
files as external, AppBuilder will copy them inside the build folder but outside
the application folder, this is especially useful for MacOS applications because
external files will be placed outside the application boundle and will be easily
accessible by the final users.

One more thing that AppBuilder can do is to create for you a zipped archive
ready to be distributed, it uses 7zip so you must have it on your system to use
this feature or, at least, you should have a similar program that uses the same
command line arguments of 7zip.

You can get a key for free if you are my patron or you can get it with a small
donation (please read about it in the project's web page).
