Create an OS X package from the command line
Authored by: bluehz on Jun 23, '03 01:39:40PM
WOW!!! I am all for CLI stuff and am trying to do everything I can using CLI - but thats incredibly difficult compared to using the PackageMaker that comes with Developer Tools.

For info on using PackageMaker

You probably have to have Dev registration but its free. If you have downloaded Developer Tools, you are already registered to do that.

I was just learning how to create packages this weekend, and I was surprised how easy it actually is.

The GUI is great for a one off. But for anything that requires consistency, anything that you do again and again, the CLI is great because it's scriptable. Script it and forget it.
