Textinator and Building macOS Apps with Python

Episode #383, published Wed, Sep 28, 2022, recorded Sun, Sep 25, 2022.

This episode is carbon neutral.
For all the amazing powers of Python, deploying packaged apps that leverage native OS-level capabilities isn't one of them. But it can be done and we have a great guest, Rhet Turnbull, here to tell us how he built his distributable macOS app Textinator that uses macOS's native vision recognition framework through Python.
