I'm wondering if it's possible to make a standalone app from a manipulate box. I mean a small app that do exactly what the manipulate box is doing in Mathematica, but without Mathematica. In other words, is it possible to export a Mathematica manipulate to a standalone app, in OS X ?

I guess the answer is a big NO. Anyone confirm this ?

  • $\begingroup$ I believe that my old version of Mathematica (v7) cannot do this. But I don't care much about my version. My question above is for any newer version. $\endgroup$ – Cham Feb 22 '16 at 15:23
  • $\begingroup$ While the CDF is your best option, it requires a hefty install package (560mb). You could CloudDeploy a manipulate, which works inside a browser; however, the Cloud is saddled with significant lag, as each computation makes a round-trip to the server. $\endgroup$ – Peter Roberge Feb 22 '16 at 17:51

  • $\begingroup$ So must I conclude that it's currently not possible to export any manipulate box from Mathematica to a simple standalone app, in OS X ? This would be an awesome feature ! $\endgroup$ – Cham Feb 22 '16 at 19:05
