Starpacker is a utility that helps join Starkits and Tclkits to create stand-alone Starpacks. This can already be done with SDX, which is a superior tool in many ways, but Starpacker provides a simpler interface to this particular aspect of SDX.

More extensive help is included with the program.


Drag an application Starkit onto Starpacker, select a Tclkit, and click Pack to create a stand-alone executable for the indicated platform. The Tclkit is downloaded automatically if needed. (May not work with all Starkits.)

I recommend watching the video full screen for maximum clarity.

The “Create Mac OS X application package” option uses the technique I’ve described before as minimal Tcl/Tk Mac application packages.
