Starting Joget Automatically Upon macOS Startup

Familiarity with Terminal, the sudo command, and the general concepts surrounding Launch Daemons and launchd is recommended.

These instructions assume that you placed Joget in /usr/local/joget. If not, you'll need to change the Working Directory key in the plist file shown below to match your own installation.

First, ensure that you have a working installation of Joget.

Then create /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.joget.plist with the following content:

<?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">
                <string>-XX:MaxPermSize=128m -Xmx512M -Dwflow.home=./wflow/</string>

Note: If you have no desire for logging, delete the StandardErrorPath and StandardOutPath key/value pairs.
