This wiki article is definitely not ready for prime time. I am using it as a repository for links I want to keep up with, but at the moment, I have dumped all the links that I have been keeping open in my browser for the last month or more ... they need to be sorted and evaluated, some dumped, others classified.

The information below has been copied from edits done to the Zipping and unzipping on MacO X by AtlasShrugged prior to trying to back out some of the changes he made. Specifically, getting rid of the redirect. 23:33, 23 November 2010 (PST)23:33, 23 November 2010 (PST)~~ CAUTION: Creating ZIP files using the Finder "Compress" (formerly "Create Archive of ...") results in ZIP files that contain Mac-specific files that frustrate and confuse non-Mac users. Any ZIP file submitted to Distributed Proofreaders or Project Gutenberg should not contain these Mac-specific files. Also remember that all zip files should have the file extension .zip in lower case letters.

  • To create ZIP files without Mac-specific files:
    • create the ZIP file using the command line in a Terminal window,
    • create the ZIP file using the Finder "Compress" (formerly "Create Archive of ..."), then manually remove the Mac-specific files in a Terminal window before creating the archive, or
    • use a utility that creates ZIP files without Mac-specific files.
Below is a list of utilities that are useful in creating ZIP files without Mac-specific files. The instructions for Yemu Zip and Springy are vestigial at best. I will try to work on them at some point in the future, but for now, the Junecloud instructions should be relatively complete. Let me know if you have any problems or comments.

Junecloud Automator Actions

Junecloud Automator Actions are a collection of Automator Actions mainly targeted for web designer/develop use that can be downloaded at no cost. An Automator Action is a group of commands packaged together that are run much as any program is run. The specific Junecloud Automator Action used to create ZIP files without Mac-specific files is called "Create Clean Archive”.

The processes below are based on the version of Mac OS X running on the computer bein used.

Mac OS X 10.6

How to Install

  1. Download the actions bundle from Junecloud's website. The download comes in a zipped disk image that should be opened and mounted autmatically.Junecloud-01-thumb.png(Larger image)
    • If it is not, double-click the .zip to unpack it, and then on the .dmg to mount it. A disk called “Junecloud Automator Actions” should appear on the desktop and/or in the Finder window.
    • If the disk image is not already open, open it.
  2. Double-click on the "Create Clean Archive.action". An Automator window will open asking whether you want to install the action.Junecloud-02.png
  3. Click "Install". An Automator window will open to choose the kind of workflow to be created.Junecloud-03-thumb.png(Larger image)
  4. Click "Open an Existing Workflow", then navigate to the "Junecloud Automator Actions" disk, then to "Services for Snow Leopard".
  5. Double-click "Create Clean Archive.workflow"; the workflow will appear in an Automator window.Junecloud-05-thumb.png(Larger image)
  6. From the File menu, select "Save as"; the service name will default to "Create Clean Archive".
  7. Either accept the default name or change it to any name meaningful for you.
  8. Click "Save".
  9. Unmount and delete the Junecloud disk image.

Using Junecloud

On Snow Leopard, there is a new entry on the Finder contextual menu.

  1. Select the files or folders to include in the ZIP file in a Finder window.
  2. Right-click (control-click) on one of them and select the new contextual menu item.Junecloud-06-thumb.png(Larger image)

The ZIP archive of the selected files and folders has been created in folder you are in.

How to Uninstall

Open a Finder window and click on your home directory (the little house icon with your name next to it). From there, go to Library, then Services. Drag the Create Clean Archive.workflow (or similar name that you have chosen above) to the Trash. The contextual menu item you created is removed.

Mac OS X 10.5

How to Install

CAUTION: According to a post on the Junecloud website, there are some problems with automatic installation on the later versions of Leopard (10.5.7 and 10.5.8). It's still quite easy to install, though.

  1. Download the actions bundle from Junecloud's website. The download comes in a zipped disk image that should be opened and mounted autmatically.Junecloud-01-thumb.png(Larger image)
    • If it is not, double-click the .zip to unpack it, and then on the .dmg to mount it. A disk called “Junecloud Automator Actions” should appear on the desktop and/or in the Finder window.
    • If the disk image is not already open, open it.
  2. Open another Finder window in column view.
  3. Click on "Home directory" (the one with a house-shaped icon beside your username)in the sidebar.
  4. Click on the "Library" folder in the window to the right of the sidebar.
  5. Click on the "Automator" folder.
    • If there is no "Automator" folder in the "Library" folder:
      • Click "New Folder" in the File menu.
      • Name the new folder "Automator".
  6. Drag the "Create Clean Archive.action" (there should be a list of actions on the left-hand side) from the Junecloud folder to the ~Library/Automator folder.
  7. Open the "Sample Workflows" folder on the right-hand side of the Junecloud window.
  8. Double-click on "Create Clean Archive"; this will open an Automator window. "Create Clean Archive" will be the right-hand window--do not change the defaults in the "Automator" window.Junecloud-04-thumb.png(Larger image)
    • If a window opens warning you about opening an application downloaded over the internet, click "Open".
  9. From the File menu, choose "Save as Plug-in...".
    • If the dialog doesn't come up with the name already filled in, type in the name you want it to have (Create Clean Archive is fine if you want to keep it the same) and leave the "Plug-in for" set for Finder. This will place the workflow in your ~/Library/Workflows/Application/Finder/ folder if one exists, or will create it if you don't already have one.
  10. Quit Automator.
  11. Eject installer.

Using Junecloud

To create a ZIP archive:

YemuZip allows a user to drag files onto the YemuZip application window in order to zip them; lets you select “PC Compatible” vs. “Mac Specific” for each archive; free for personal use, but shows advertisement screens if you do not buy it (USD 4.95)

Springy

Springy allows a user to drag files into a window that looks pretty much like a Finder window; lets you browse zip files like folders; make sure to uncheck the “Preserve Macintosh contents” on the “Archiving” tab of the preferences; shareware (you cannot browse archives with more than 50 MB and/or 500 files and folders if you do not buy it (USD 19.95), but you can create them)
