cocoa -> classic

Has anyone done anything that create an app that comes from cocoa but uses the carbonlib under classic to work?

If so, it might be possible for me to 'backport' the OSX client to classic this way.

I don't think you _can_ do that any way easily. And it's not really in Apple's interest to help you with that, either, if you think about it.

Anyway, I wouldn't worry too much about trying to backport cocoa. If you want to run on 8/9 and X, start fresh and use Carbon. :/

nope, sorry
yep, no cocoa backporting. although carbon apps and cocoa apps essentially look the same when run in OSX, the way they actually work is completely different. Apple would need to completely redesign OS 9 to run cocoa apps, which would be silly because there's already a MacOS that runs them; X.

Thanks for thinking of older users, but I think we're find with just OS X for now. :D

Depending on how far you've abstracted the gui from the livejournal specific code, you could rewrite the gui in Carbon, but to answer your question I do not believe there's a simple quick port to Carbon.

However, I've heard talk that people have created gigantic SuperFat (tm) binaries, the same idea as binaries for both 68k and PPC back in the day. Then again, this was from the same person that wanted to make a SuperSuperFat binary that would run on 68k's, PPC, and OSX. They were not well.

While I'm at it, your client rocks. The options panel blows my tiny little mind. It's so much better than the Classic client... I often refrain from posting until I'm in OSX just because it's SO much better.
