GitNub.app should install itself on launch

Reported by Joseph Holsten | April 18th, 2010 @ 07:22 AM

The installation process of GitNub.app (and nub) is awkward.

Instead of having the user install from a zipped folder, we should move nub into GitNub.app/Contents/Resources/nub and offer to install a symlink on the first launch. The dialog should offer to install to ~/bin by default if it exists, otherwise defaulting to /usr/local/bin, and offer the macports /opt/local/bin, and fink /sw/bin if they exist. The user should be able to choose a location as well. Only show this dialog on the first launch.

This install nub dialog should be available from the Help menu as well.

GitNub.app should also check its location on the first launch as in Limi's Firefox Mac installation experience, revisited. Potion Factory has released their code to do this as public domain.
