You know how there are certain websites you keep using up on a day-to-day basis? For me, 22Tracks (an excellent music discovery service btw) is one of those and it’s always a pain to find it, buried among the many tabs I open in Safari throughout the day.
There are options out there that let you save website as standalone Mac apps, such as Fluid, but the aesthetic of the standard Mac OS window does not really do if for me. Since I’m a big fan of going titlebar-less (see the Wire OS X app that I worked on for example), a few minutes in Xcode gives me exactly what I need. Add a nice app icon with Sketch and Icon Composer on top of that, and the 22tracks website just became a much better companion.
Also with Yosemite the titlebar-less appearance has become much easier to accomplish, just set your NSWindow stylemask to ‘NSFullSizeContentViewWindowMask’ and set the following 2 properties on your window:
self.window.titlebarAppearsTransparent = YES;
self.window.titleVisibility = NSWindowTitleHidden;
