Convert .app to .pkg (Packaging)

1. Productbuild + ARD demo suggestion:

create a distribution package of a small app (man productbuild)
distribute the package to each attendee’s Mac using ARD

see: man productbuild

Example:
 productbuild --component /Applications/Firefox.app/ /Applications/ ~/Desktop/Firefox.pkg



2. pkgbuild

Example :

sudo pkgbuild --install-location /Applications --component /path/to/app/for/MyGreatApp.app ./path/to/save/package/packagename.pkg

 

Example for Firefox :

sudo pkgbuild --install-location /Applications --component /Applications/Firefox.app ~/Desktop/Firefox_v300.pkg
