    .wgz file created using mac os x zip utility fails to install

    I am on Mac OSX. I have created a widget using the Aptana Studio WRT Plugin. Packaging the widget using Aptana is successful; the widget package can be successfully deployed and installed.

    However, if I don't use Aptana, and simply use the native OSX zip utility (either via command line or context menu), the resulting widget package cannot be installed. I am using the same files, and I have unzipped both the Aptana package and the native os x package, and compared the contents, and they appear to be identical.

    I am guessing it is the zip format, so the question is, what zip format does the Aptana WRT Plugin use for packaging widgets (and how can I use the same compression format from the command line)?

    Hi wildabeast,

    were you able to solve your packaging issue? If not, try posting a sample widget packaged on OSX, so that it'll be possible to analyze it and spot out possible differences with the WRT package format.

    Still haven't solved it. Here's a sample of a widget packaged on OSX:

    Hi wildabeast,

    it seems that the widget files are placed directly within the zip root: actually, the WRT widgets files should be placed in a subfolder of the ZIP root, so something like that:

    Code:
    app.zip
    |_app/
      |_Info.plist
      |_index.html
      |_[other files and folders]
    Hope this helps,
    Pit
