Deploy your app

You can use the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for OSX to create applications for Mac computers. Follow the steps below to ensure you've licensed the capabilities your app uses and that you understand associated costs.

1. Choose your Apple Mac Developer Program

An important factor in building your application for the OS X platform is your deployment and licensing agreement with Apple. The following steps will guide you to a successful deployment:

  1. Enroll in the Apple Developer Program.
  2. Test your Mac application.

    During development, you can leverage your developer program agreement with Apple by testing your app using the Xcode graphical debugger, collecting real-time performance data using Instruments' time line, and contacting Apple technical support.

  3. Distribute your app.

    You can distribute your application through the Mac App Store, by email, or posting to a website or server.

2. License and attribute your app

  1. License the capabilities you included in the app. Licensing comes in two levels, Basic and Standard. License your app describes license levels and costs associated with deployment.
  2. Attribute Esri in your application. For details, see the attribution section in License your app.

3. Raise awareness of your app

Once your application is deployed and licensed, you can increase awareness of it via the ArcGIS Marketplace or ArcGIS Online.
