Picto Selector and MAC

Later this summer I hope to buy my first MacBook and i would like to create a MAC version of Picto Selector. (At least I can improvide support with Wine Bottler)

I would like to build a Picto Selector that run both on Windows and MAC. Sharing the source code between them would be great.

There are several cros compilers available that can generate both a Windows and a MAC application from (almost) the same source:

  • Delphi Firemonkey (Delphi is used for Picto Selector using the VCL for GUI)
  • Real Basic (back to my basic roots, very long ago 🙂 )
  • C# with Xamarin, can build against the native frameworks of MAC and Windows
  • Oxygene (Object pascal with c# enhancements), can build against the native frameworks of MAC and Windows
  • Lazarus, (Object pascal which can build against several GUI frameworks)

So I’m currently investigating what would work and how I could use those tools. Very interesting stuff 🙂
