APPBuilder is a tool that will increase your Hollywood multimedia language
productivity, with APPBuilder you can compile and pack your project with a
single click without bothering with long shell commands..

The nice thing of this application is that you can choice for which target
platforms you wish to build your sources and what Hollywood plugins your
application uses, doing so APPBuilder will manage for you all the boring things
like copying the correct plugin version in the correct target platform folder.

But that’s not all because 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, including MacOSX
application boundles!

APPBuilder can also manage external data: with external data I mean data that
must be included with your distribution but that is not essential 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 MacOSX applications because external files will be placed outside the
application boundle and so will be easy 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.


Main interface

APPBuilder has been developed because of my personal needs: compiling for all
platform (when possible) supported by Hollywood it’s not easy, especially when
come the time to compile the application and build the distribution packages.
You have to make attention to copy the right data in the right folders for each
target platform, and for each target you have to provide the right plugins
if your application makes use of them.
Yes, you could wirte a build script, but if you have many projects like me,
writing scripts for each projects is something I personally hate  :)

APPBuilder resolves almost all these kind of problems, you define a project
source code, which plugins uses, for which targets you want to compile for,
application resources and external data, save this project and you are done!

When you change your source code and want to build again just open APPBuilder,
load the previously saved project and hit the BUILD button: isn’t it simple and
time saving enough?

APPBuilder is available only in english at this time and it has been tested
under Windows 7, please try it on your system before buying.


APPBuilder documentation is available 


APPBuilder is distributed as shareware, downloading one of the available package

restrictions so you can have the time to test it.

APPBuilder executable is and you are done, the received key can be used with any
version downloadable on this site or on the IndieGO! AppStore but it is valid
only for one person, this means that it should be used only by one person at a
