Packaging an Application on Mac OS X with Platypus


#1

Platypus (http://sveinbjorn.sytes.net/platypus) is an application that
takes a shell script and packages it as a clickable Mac OS X
application.
I would like to have a clickable application that executes the command
“script/server” and displays the output in the text window, alongside
with a “quit”-button that ends the server process.
My shell script looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
$1/…/script/server

When I execute the generated application the server gets started
correctly but it produces no output and the application quits without
ending the server script.

Has anybody tried what I am doing? Any tips for getting the desired
behavior?
