OSX Direc­tory Bundles

31 May 2010

Tagged with iTunes

OSX has a spe­cial way of treat­ing some direc­to­ries by not show­ing you all the files in the direc­tory but by just show­ing you the top level direc­tory name. Appli­ca­tions, frame­works and plu­g­ins are usu­ally treated this way.

The bun­dle will react in dif­fer­ent ways when it is double clicked.

To see any bundle’s raw files then right click on the file and in the menu select “Show Pack­age Con­tents”. This will open a new finder win­dow with the file shown. Bun­dles can also be opened like a project. For exam­ple if you open a dot itlp or a dah­code pack­age with Text­Mate it will open it as though it is a Text­Mate project.
