    osx-find-executable

    Part of HTTP Toolkit: powerful tools for building, testing & debugging HTTP(S)

    Find an app's executable on Mac.

    This is a fork of https://github.com/juliangruber/osx-find-executable, which appears to now be unmaintained.

    Key differences:

    • This fork includes a fallback (manually searching the apps in /Applications) if Spotlight is disabled, instead of just claiming that all apps can't be found.
    • This fork can also find an executable given a path to an app folder, not only using bundle id.
    • This fork returns promises throughout, and doesn't use callbacks.
    • This fork includes type definitions for TypeScript.

    Installation

    $ npm install @httptoolkit/osx-find-executable

    Usage

    const { findExecutableById } = require('@httptoolkit/osx-find-executable')
    
    findExecutableById('com.google.Chrome').then((exec) => {
      // => /Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome
    });

    For more detailed examples, take a look at the tests in test.js

    API

    findExecutableById(id)

    Takes a bundle id (like com.google.Chrome), finds the corresponding bundle on disk, and returns a promise for the path to the executable within.

    findExecutableInApp(appPath)

    Takes a path to an app bundle (a .app directory, like /Applications/Google Chrome.app), and returns a promise for the path to the executable within.
