Reading a plist?

(paulc) #1

Been having troubles with an app called Twitch, they aren’t being too responsive so I started doing my own digging. Result of another thread here, I find they have a plist in my ~/Library/LaunchAgents folder. I read it and am not so sure of it actually does anything of any significance, so what do you see (the code does not seem to show up in the post, but it is in there and I do not know what code to use to turn it into readable code):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>Disabled</key>
	<true/>
	<key>KeepAlive</key>
	<false/>
	<key>Label</key>
	<string>com.twitch.desktop</string>
	<key>ProgramArguments</key>
	<array>
		<string>/usr/bin/open</string>
		<string>/Applications/Twitch.app</string>
		<string>--args</string>
		<string>/startup</string>
	</array>
	<key>RunAtLoad</key>
	<true/>
</dict>
</plist>

To get code to show up in a post, use the </> button in the toolbar to make it preformatted, which I’ve done for you now.

It’s a LaunchAgent designed to open the Twitch app at startup, but it is currently disabled.

Ah, thanks… goes towards me better understanding these things! Unfortunately doesn’t at all appear to have anything to do with the main issue with the app.
