Building the AppStore version of Growl

The latest versions of Growl are only officially available through the AppStore. The AppStore version is now a paid app. For those of you who don't want to pay for it, the source code is still freely available and BSD licensed.

Here's how to build the latest Growl version from source (those who don't want to compile the source themselves but still want the latest Growl for free, check the links at the bottom of this post for my own build). You'll need Xcode and mercurial.

  1. Clone source code repository: hg clone https://code.google.com/p/growl/
  2. Change to the growl directory: cd growl
  3. Build: LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" xcodebuild -project Growl.xcodeproj -configuration Release -target Growl.app CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY="Don't Code Sign"
  4. Copy Growl.app to /Applications: cp -rp build/Release/Growl.app /Applications/.

My latest build is linked below (may be out of date. If it is, leave a comment and I'll build the latest).
