Can anyone tell me what kind of development environment MacAPP is?
How complicated is it? How does it fair against CW or RB?

Thanks,

I believe that MacApp is similar to Metrowerks' PowerPlant, which is
simply a complex application framework of C++ classes that makes
application development a little easier. There's still a lot of work
that you have to do to make a workable app, though it's not nearly as bad
as trying to write all the pre-written routines from scratch.

RB is, all in all, much faster and easier to create an app with.
However, a framework like MacApp or PowerPlant has far fewer limitations
than RB.

What is fun about RB is that the so-called limitations can mostly all be
resolved by using plugins, which to my sense are only RB-ize C code.

so can you write me a plugin, so that i can write a dynamic library or a
printer driver with RB?
RB can only make applications. which is a lot, and actually a lot lot
easier than on other platforms, including the cocoa framework. i laughed
a little bit about the mactech article (write a cocoa application with
one line of code), because it took several pages to explain something
which in realbasic would have been one paragraph :-)
