Yes, you read right. Thanks to the API added to MissionComputer at some point (which I requested, incidentally), I have managed to make an alternative version of Plug-in Archiver accessible from the Utilities menu of MC, complete with preferences. Simply select Archive Plug-in from the Utilities menu and the frontmost document will be zipped, binned if necessary. Preferences are available from the Uility Preferences menu beneath Archve Plug-in.
There are a couple of minor quirks, but these are almost entirely irrelevant:
- "Something's happening" window doesn't show up; this is a by-product of the method I used to stream resource forks and is present in the other version of the app.
- Seems to switch back to MC even if it's set to show archived plug-ins (which it does, briefly).
Get it at my new web page. OS X only.
