I've made separate macOS standalone launcher .app shims that launch Writer, Impress, Draw, Math, etc., just like LibreOffice works in Linux.
They are nothing more than an Automator script that executes `/Applications/LibreOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/soffice --writer "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1 &`
Because it supports args you can even drag files onto whichever of these .app bundles you have on the dock, and it'll open the file in the relevant LibreOffice program.
As one of the most oft requested features for Mac is 'can I please have a way to separately install Writer or a way to launch the separate aspects of LibreOffice', this should do nicely.
If wanted, now the fat binary could even be 'hidden' somewhere in the Application Support folder, and just the shims could be placed in /Applications.
One thing: whilst the shims can be placed anywhere, LibreOffice has to be installed in its default location, since that is what the shell line inside the .app shim expects.
Cheers and I hope this will be useful :)

I would love to have this separate launcher also in MacOS
Add UXEval to investigate
@Heiko, can this be done? I would like to see this one. May be we can go further providing macOS style specific icon app also?
