Note: NetNewsWire’s Help menu has a bunch of these links, so you don’t have to remember to come back to this page.
Here’s How to Support NetNewsWire. Spoiler: don’t send money. 🙂
Join the Slack group to talk with other NetNewsWire users — and to help out, if you’d like to, by testing, coding, writing, providing feedback, or just helping us think things through. Everybody is welcome and encouraged to join.
See the Contributing page for our process. It’s pretty straightforward.
You can build and test NetNewsWire without a paid developer account.
git clone https://github.com/Ranchero-Software/NetNewsWire.git
You can locally override the Xcode settings for code signing by creating a
DeveloperSettings.xcconfig file locally at the appropriate path. This allows for a pristine project with code signing set up with the appropriate developer ID and certificates, and for developer to be able to have local settings without needing to check in anything into source control.
You can do this in one of two ways: using the included
setup.sh script or by creating the folder structure and file manually.
- Open Terminal and
cdinto the NetNewsWire directory.
- Run this command to ensure you have execution rights for the script:
chmod +x setup.sh
- Execute the script with the following command:
./setup.shand complete the answers.
Make a directory
SharedXcodeSettings next to where you have this repository.
The directory structure is:
aDirectory/ SharedXcodeSettings/ DeveloperSettings.xcconfig NetNewsWire/ NetNewsWire.xcworkspace
If your NetNewsWire Xcode project file is at:
DeveloperSettings.xcconfig file at
Then create a plain text file in it:
SharedXcodeSettings/DeveloperSettings.xcconfig and give it the contents:
CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY = Mac Developer DEVELOPMENT_TEAM = <Your Team ID> CODE_SIGN_STYLE = Automatic ORGANIZATION_IDENTIFIER = <Your Domain Name Reversed> DEVELOPER_ENTITLEMENTS = -dev PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER =
DEVELOPMENT_TEAM to your Apple supplied development team. You can use Keychain Access to find your development team ID. Set
ORGANIZATION_IDENTIFIER to a reversed domain name that you control or have made up. Note that
PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER should not have a value associated with it.
You can now open the
NetNewsWire.xccodeproj in Xcode.
Now you should be able to build without code signing errors and without modifying the NetNewsWire Xcode project. This is a special build of NetNewsWire with some functionality disabled. This is because we have API keys that can’t be stored in the repository or shared between developers. Certain account types, like iCloud and Feedly, aren’t enabled and the Reader View isn’t enabled because of this.
If you have any problems, we will help you out in Slack (see above).
