Some of us have the skills to code web pages with HTML, CSS and PHP/MySQL. Some of us on are Macs. All the alternatives are Windows-based, which won't work for me. I've found his Github account for Nightrain, but his binaries are lost as it's no longer on the site where the link takes you.

So, as of now, there are no Mac options unless you want to spend a ton of time learning another language when all you want to do is take an existing idea and just make a desktop app for it.

If only there was an option to get those binaries.
