but I’m DONE and there’s a Mac version of Beacon now and it’s lovely.
I thought doing a Mac build would be like building stuff for Linux. It’s not! Apparently libraries come in “framework bundles”, and programs go in “application bundles”, so there’s lots of Mac-specific directory stuff to handle. On top of that, the accepted way of doing everything is to build stuff through XCode. I wanted to use gcc directly so I could port to Linux more easily, but I think that actually made everything take longer.
IT’S OKAY. I get it now! And the sheer number of Mac owners and gamers around was quite a surprise. I only realised yesterday that about half the people I know use Macs, and a bunch more showed up on Twitter to hold out for the port and help beta test. You guys are great and very patient. I won’t make you wait next time 🙂
Next up: Linux build.
Next next up: sleeping for a couple days solid.
