Including a unix binary (and calling it) within an Alfred workflow - how?

Recommended Posts

I'm writing an Alfred workflow that requires use of an external Unix binary.  Currently I am installing this binary using Homebrew; however when I eventually start distributing my workflow, I would rather not have to force the user to set up Xcode command line tools, install Homebrew, etc.  Ideally I'd like to distribute a pre-compiled version of the binary(s) my workflow uses, along with the workflow.  Is it possible to distribute resource(s) (such as binaries, shell scripts/Applescripts, etc.) as part of the Alfred workflow bundle?  And how would one call that binary (i.e. instead of hard-coding a path, like /usr/local/bin/foo)?
