Laurent22300 (Homepage) - November 4, 2008 - 11:03am

Application: Appetizer (Formerly known as MiniLaunchBar)

Category: Dock application

Description: This an application launcher for PortableApps applications. Rather than organizing the apps as a list like the Windows Start menu, they are organized in a tool bar a bit similar to the Mac OSX dock bar.

Release notes: Several bug fixes and a few new features in this release (see Change log below). Please give it a try and let me know if it's working for you. In particular, please check if you can launch an app, drag and drop files onto the dock, and move icons around.

Feature suggestions are also welcome.

problem

There are about 11 icons that show up for programs that aren't on my usb drive like coolplayer and toucan and total commander. Did you forget to delete the settings or preferences file when you uploaded?

Ok I've re-updated the

Ok I've re-updated the archive (this time withouth my setting files Smiling. You can also delete the files in Data/Settings to reset the preferences.

Looks pretty good. A couple

Looks pretty good. A couple comments though.

For the switching to vertical/horizontal orientation, you should swap the width and height values as well. This will keep the expanded option bar from being stretched, and will ensure that the current size is preserved and only orientation is changed.

When right-clicking inside the menu, the popup menu displays "IconPanel.PopupMenu.NewGroup" as a caption, rather than "New Group..."

When creating a group, if the group is empty, left-clicking on the group icon, the popup message displays Icon.EditShortcuts clicking this popup item does nothing.

The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

Right, the "new group" menu

Right, the "new group" menu items shouldn't have been there, since this functionality is not ready yet. I'll remove it in the next release.

Good point for the switching of the width and height, I'm going to add that.

nice

new icon, new name : I love them

Small bugs:

When creating a new folder the pop up says : "The shorcut location doesn't exist. Do you wish to continue?" -> folder icon is created though and works

Using your new 48x48 olive

Using your new 48x48 olive icon, i created a high resolution 256x256 olive.

it can be found here

The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

That's great, thanks!

That's great, thanks! Actually, could you move the leaf up a bit so that it's not under the olive? This is how the final icon will look:

Olive 48x48

Also the olive needs to be slighlty rotated to the right.

Done

The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

Just one last thing

There should be a small highlight at the bottom of the olive, to give it more volume. It's visible on the 48x48 icon.

Ok...here it is

ok under win 2k limeted

ok under win 2k limeted account, it works fine (with knowed bugs like rightclick context, german translation...... all i have read in the top of thread;-) )

a few questions:
-can you add a magnetic function (like other docks) and an autohide?
-and an option to set own buttons in the option menu ?

btw, i like this app i will create a few themes for you.

kind regards
NeoRame

Hell was full, so I came back!!!
Sorry for my lousy English!!!

Glad to hear that it work on

Glad to hear that it works on win2k!

What do you mean by a magnetic function? Is it like snapping? - this will be in version 1.0.

Regarding the option buttons, they are designed to be quite flexible. At least in code it's easy to add and remove buttons, and it shouldn't be too hard to make that a setting. I'll think about it, although it's currently not a priority.

the new vertical orientation

the new vertical orientation feature is COOOOOOOOL, i was getting upset because & like it at the left part of the screen & every time i wanted to change a setting i had to move it. & the lightning in the app icon is cool too!!!!!

8·D

Eiñ??? A siñature????

I have Windows 2000 service

I have Windows 2000 service pack4 and so far this wonderful little program is workiing just fine. I dropped a few portable programs in the window and they work!
I used the "add shortcut", works!

WOOT! the pdf pops up! hey, I'm happy!

"No one man can terrorize a whole nation unless we are all his accomplices." - Edward R. Murrow

Great Progress

I have been playing with this since the beta that was before the alpha. Things are moving right along. Can't wait until the group folders are a working feature.

A feature I would like to see it the ability to slide the icon tray in to the left (or up to the top for vertical orientation) and hide it like the controls on the right can slide to the right and disappear. This would let it take up less screen space when not in use.

Being able to attach it to a side of the screen and autohide like Google's toolbar would be another alternative too

Being able to attach it to a

Being able to attach it to a side of the screen and autohide like Google's toolbar would be another alternative too

It won't be in the first public release, but at some point I'll add a function to auto-hide the dock when an application is launched. There will also be a snapping feature.

Two more requests..

1) the path to help file should be selectable -> helps to change direction to a localized helpfile
2) the pdf reader should selectable, e.g. to Sumatra portable

1) the path to help file

1) the path to help file should be selectable -> helps to change direction to a localized helpfile

Actually the app already supports localized helps files. Just create a new "de" folder in the "Help" folder and put a localized "Appetizer.pdf" file in there. You can get the help source file (in OpenDocument format) from the repository:

http://code.google.com/p/minilaunchbar/source/browse/#svn/trunk/Data/Hel...

Also, I've updated the english localization:

http://code.google.com/p/minilaunchbar/source/browse/#svn/trunk/Data/Loc...

2) the pdf reader should selectable, e.g. to Sumatra portable

That would make sense. Maybe the dock could detect if a PDF reader is available on the USB key and launch the help file with it. I'll add that to the list of possible features, although it's not a priority either.

well, I´ll come back later

errm semms that odt can´t be opened with OOo, I´ll try once more..

Sweet

Works really well. Still a bit slow to populate, but that's no big deal.
One odd thing I noticed is that the icon for cyptnote (a text editor that offers built-in encryption) is not shown when the application is the the popup list, but displays ok as long as it's in the main window.
And if I might request one thing - can the Eject button be shown outside, like Close and Help?

Thanks, I'll look into that.

can the Eject button be shown outside, like Close and Help?

There's not enough space to have more than two buttons there. If you use 16x16 icons, and make the bar the smallest possible, there's just enough space for Close and Help. If I add a button it will overlap the "resizer" handle.

In that case

How about moving Help to the tray area? I'm sure Eject will see much more use than Help, so it would be nice to not have to open the tray for that all the time.

I think this sounds like a

I think this sounds like a good idea as well

The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

I put the help button there

I put the help button there to make sure people don't miss it, but it's true that it probably won't be used more than once or twice.

I don't know if I should replace it by the eject button or try to make this area more scalable so that there can be more than two buttons. I'll think about it.

Nice!

Works like a charm! Smiling
I updated the Dutch translation for you. If I missed something then let me know and I'll fix it asap.

Delete needs to be renamed

When you right click on an icon the menu says DELETE, shouldn't it say something like "Delete Icon from Menu" to indicate that it is NOT the file you deleting but the icon/link.

New release and transfer to Sourceforge

Appetizer will now be available on Sourceforge at this address:

http://appetizer.sourceforge.net/

I've also updated version 0.9.4.906, which includes some small bug fixes.

The major difference though, is that the settings are now saved by default in the standard user folder "c:\documents and settings...". To enable the portable mode and have the settings saved in the same directory as the app, you need to launch it with the "-p" switch (e.g. "appetizer.exe -p")

"To enable the portable mode

"To enable the portable mode and have the settings saved in the same directory as the app, you need to launch it with the "-p" switch (e.g. "appetizer.exe -p")"

can portable mode be default? i'm a bit confused as to why this wouldn't be and why I need to jump through hoops to get it "portable" (which I can't seem to do now)

I agree. I think portable by default is a better way to go

Well, saving to "documents

Well, saving to "documents and settings" is the standard on Windows and I think should be the default.

On the other hand, we could make a PAF launcher or installer to enable the portable mode. Does anybody know how to do that? Also if I want to make a PAF launcher, what are the conditions? do I need some authorization from PortableApps.com? I'm still looking for the best way to package all that and do releases, so any suggestions would be welcome.

Windows doesnt really have a

Windows doesnt really have a "default", some apps save in %APPDATA%, some in the registry, some in their own directory, and some in %USERPROFILE%. I think it would be best to leave the app as portable by default, and make it save settings in the application's directory.

The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

Why SourceForge?

Just curious, why'd you switch to SF? The sub-domain?

Yes, for the URL and for the

Yes, for the URL and for the custom home page (it's not possible to do that on GC yet). Also somebody else already had the "appetizer" name on Google Code.

Ok, the Prerelease 2 seems to work both portable and local

langfile not yet updated -< I was too slow, I know, testing the new one works, "appearance" and "skins" are translated.

de_Helpfile in typical position works..-> should be updated with the new switch between portable and local

starting with a little starter.exe wand -p argument works

eject button doesn´t work properly -> app can´t eject the drive , there´s always an error like: "can´t eject the drive", other apps aren´t closed, either

at last one suggestion, wouldn´t it be more comfortable to have a checkbox within config menu asking for the portable or nonportable mode?

eject button doesn´t work

eject button doesn´t work properly

Indeed, that's strange, the app seems to be closed properly but the drive won't eject. I need to look into that.

Feature suggestion, add

Feature suggestion, add access to the Config menu to the tray icon

I've added that to the todo

I've added that to the todo list. I'll also add some other options like "Eject" and "Help".

Skin

Could you post the grey/blue skin as shown in the download page? I come close but still not as refined as the skin shown. Thanks Bill

The skin is done but I need

The skin is done but I need to split it into parts so that it can be used with the dock. I'll post it here when it's done.

Version 0.9.4.958 is available

Just a quick release with a few bugs fixes to get this 0.9.4 version right:

- Option panel is now automatically opened the first time the dock is launched
- Removed help button from side of dock and replaced by eject button
- Moved help button back to option panel
- By default, the app now saves its settings in the "Data/Settings" folder.
- Added -d parameters to set data folder path, and -u to automatically use the user data folder (c:\documents and settings...)
- Fixed: the eject functionality wasn't working since the eject dialog was locking the drive.

So the main change is that the app is now portable by default, so you don't need to add the "-p" parameter anymore. I've also dropped the installer release for now.

Thanks

for making the portable mode default and congrats on the new homepage!

short test..

Portable as default works..
Helpbutton doesn´t work properly -> pdf reader seems to be called, but doesn´t open
(had to close the process with taskmanager, though)
Eject button ejects the drive, but it doesn´t close all running apps on the drive -> the ability to close all apps friendly would do better...

The $PATH issue isnt solved, PuTTY with keyfile etc won't run
because $PATH is again Appetizer and not where tha App starts

Thanks for the feedback - it

Thanks for the feedback - it will be fixed in the next version.

Helpbutton doesn´t work

Helpbutton doesn´t work properly -> pdf reader seems to be called, but doesn´t open

I had this issue too, I think it works but it's just *very* slow. If you wait like 15-20 seconds, it may open. I need to figure out what's going on.

Eject button ejects the drive, but it doesn´t close all running apps on the drive

I'm planning that for version 1

to be more precise

the help file doesn´t work on restricted account winXp SP3, but there´s no problem or delay on admin account.

So the help file is not

So the help file is not launching at all on restricted account?

Here it's working for me on WinXP SP2, limited account.

ok, to narrow it..

It´s working with acrobat 7 on my PC at home on admin and limited account.
It´s not working on domain user account at work with adobe reader 8 (though it did till the last update). Appetizer seems to call the reader, ´cause acro32.exe is running silently after clicking the helpfile, though I admit, I didn´t stop the time waiting. Drive was to remove only after killing the acro32 process with taskmanager.
So, something seems to prevent acroreader from a full launch...

Backticks?

Backticks, eh? Reminds me of Vista and its sudden decision to switch the keyboard layout.

@Laurent: Would it be possible to have it check for ..\SumatraPDFPortable\SumatraPDFPortable.exe?

Would it be possible to have

Would it be possible to have it check for ..\SumatraPDFPortable\SumatraPDFPortable.exe?

lol, I've just implemented this exact feature Laughing out loud If Sumatra is available among the dock icons, it will be used to launch the help file.

One possible reason for this

One possible reason for this problem is that Acrobat was launched with the drive's path as the current directory, which maybe was confusing it.

I've changed that in my current dev version, so now applications will be launched from their own folder. It seems to have fixed the issue for Acrobat Reader (at least at the moment it's not freezing anymore).

ok, then one small fix

Appearance tab: "skins" is not on the same line as the the following text ("default") in the box...

is there any way to make this

is there any way to make this file work on auto run--such as portableapps or PStart?

two ways

1)Edit autorun.inf "Open=PortableApps/Appetizer_0.9.4.958/Appetizer.exe"
2)Use the R34 Mod (till the new PAM is released)and enable autorun for appetizer on Menu start.

And if you want to set the

And if you want to set the drive icon as the Appetizer icon, you can add:

Icon=PortableApps\Appetizer\Data\Skin\Application.ico

This would be the complete autorun.inf (assuming Appetizer is in PortableApps\Appetizer):

[autorun]
Icon=PortableApps\Appetizer\Data\Skin\Application.ico
Action=Start Appetizer
Open=PortableApps\Appetizer\Appetizer.exe
UseAutoPlay=1

Ok so first i copied and

Ok so first i copied and pasted what you typed and i edited it to this:

[autorun]
Icon=Flash Drive Programs\Appetizer_0.9.4.958\Data\Skin\Application.ico
Action=Start Appetizer
Open=Flash Drive Programs\Appetizer_0.9.4.958\Appetizer.exe
UseAutoPlay=1

Then, when i started my flash drive again, it opens Adobe Flash CS3. Why?

That's one improvement that i think Appetizer should have: make it autorun. Its still cool though.

I don't use the PA start menu.

you have to quote the paths:

you have to quote the paths: ie. "Flash Drive Programs\Appetizer_0.9.4.958\Appetizer.exe"

without quotation marks, Windows only sees "Flash" and tries to execute that command

I edited the folder into

I edited the folder into "programs" and changed the file. It still didn't work. I'm not going to fuss with it anymore. I'll stick with PStart. Thanks anyway for the help.

Did you get any error message

Did you get any error message after you've made the changes? Just curious. I will probably provide an installer at some point that will generate the autorun.inf automatically.

After Adobe Flash CS3 opened

After Adobe Flash CS3 opened up, there was a message that said something to the extent of "Adobe Flash CS3 failed to open Appetizer.exe" but i don't think that will help much.

I like this

I like this lots. The only thing i would say that i want to see are;

-Draw Icon into folder
-Option to generate icon from text (At the moment am just downloading a few icons from sites to help me)

Apart from that perfect.

Thanks

Its always easier when you know how.
