Hey everyone,

I just finished a CMake-based build of TeXworks that is capable of producing
stand-alone apps. At least, the resulting binary build on OS X 10.6.7
appears to be running fine on a clean install of OS X 10.6.4.

A Drag N' Drop installer is available at:


Currently the build is Snow Leopard only and there is no support for Qt
plugins such as Lua and Python scripting.

If someone wants to play with the build system, the code is available at:


Direct git access:


If anyone has any improvements/corrections, feel free to fork the repo and
send a pull request.

If the core developers are interested in bringing this new build system into
the SVN repository, the following patch should apply cleanly against
revision 813:


There is only one teenie-tiny change to src/TWApp.h to guard against D-Bus
that affects the existing code code.

Hope this is useful to someone!
