Hi, I recently noticed Keka after searching for mac tools that support 7zip. It seems quite nice. I haven't found anything that works like 7zip on Windows, but never mind. Why do mac decompression tools always want to decompress the whole archive?

Also, I notice that Keka is listed as being GPL, on sourceforge, but I can't find the source code.

This app breaks the GNU GPL license. I'm trying to contact with Apple, but not sure how to do it.

Any help is welcome!

well done on getting it done so quickly.

I'd love to see keka in the app store, but only the real version not some rip off

This was really never solved. This application (and two more) got kicked from MAS but returned. This project needs some law force and collaboration to keep being open source.
