Recent versions of NetBeans don’t come with platform-specific installers, so we no longer get a nice double-clickable application for operating systems like macOS and Windows.

While you can double-click the netbeans script under macOS, this isn’t particularly nice, and can be tricky to integrate with quick launchers.

This is an AppleScript application that provides a simple double-clickable wrapper around the netbeans script. On first run, it asks you to locate and open that script. It then remembers this location from then on. To reset the path, hold down option/alt when opening the application.
