WikidPad Portable

Wikidpad is Wiki-like note-taking software, eventhough it is very portable to start out I made it more portable. Wikidpad is opensource software, so enjoy!

Link: http://cubegames.net/downloads/Wikidpad%20Portable.paf.exe
By the way , Wikidpad Portable currently for some reason is incompatible with the PortableApps Menu, but can be used by double-clicking on the Wikidpad Portable icon.

Insulting!

That's pretty insulting!

Just because people choose opensource software over money-costing stuff doesn't make them "cheapos"!

Thanks though

Thanks for posting the article though - WikiPad actually sounds pretty interesting!

The official site at http://wikidpad.sourceforge.net/ ("cheapo" WWW hosting for "cheapo" software!) describes it as:

wikidPad is like an IDE for your thoughts

I'm not sure whether to stick with PNotes or use WikiPad for writing notes I want to keep now!

Really?

You're replying to a post from 2.5 years ago? And taking issue with something he didn't even say? (He's complaining about free file hosting services because they go down a lot and the files end up gone after a few months, probably because he couldn't download the file 2.5 years ago, which has long since been corrected)

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Free hosting

www.esnips.com

Free hosting services are few and fair between. This one gives you 5 gb of storage for free.

I am sorry, but I am gonna havta find a better webhosting service, but I feel bad for knowing what you are missing out on, and for slowly wasting your time. Does the link at MediaFire work OK?

Don't worry I'll find a better service, like SourceForge, and the like, soon.

Aww, great...

when i tried to open it from PAM i got an error screen that said
"error starting Wikidpad. [errno 2] No such file or directory: 'G:\\app\\wikidpad.xrc'"
could the error be in your launcher code?
It does the same thing when opening the launcher directly.
opening the main exe file works.

At first glance it seems like it works correctly. Great job, and keep up the good work!
If and when you fix the launcher post it, please and thank you!

Files remain in Docs & Settings Folder

I downloaded and unpacked WikidPad onto my desktop to give it a try last week. After trying it I deleted the unpacked folder and the download from my desktop.

I've just been going through my Documents and Settings folder looking for another file and came across a folder in C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\ called .WikidPadGlobals

Inside the folder .WikidPadGlobals there's a single file called [TextBlocks].wiki

Opening up [TextBlocks].wiki in Wordpad reveals the following content:

importance: high;a=[importance: high]\n
importance: low;a=[importance: low]\n
tree_position: 0;a=[tree_position: 0]\n
wrap: 80;a=[wrap: 80]\n
camelCaseWordsEnabled: false;a=[camelCaseWordsEnabled: false]\n

In my case at least some traces of WikidPad have been left behind.

That directory should be moved to the Wikipad directory on USB

Wikipad works without problems in my USB.

The web site instructs to copy the directory with WikiPad globals to the USB.

With help - about and scroll to the bottom of the windows, will tell you where is located this directory. In my case is ubicated on:

Your configuration directory is: G:\PortableApps\WikidPad
Sqlite version: 3.2.2
wxPython version: 2.6.2.1

I am using WikiPad 1.9rc08 and works OK.

You just copy the program from \Program Files to a directory on you \PortableApps\WikiPad and that's all. WikiPad shows in PAM menu and is invoked from them.

Fixing error

I fixed the above problem by

  1. Download and install AutoIt
  2. Change the AutoIt script in the Source dir to
    RunWait("regedit.exe /s Portable.reg", @ScriptDir)
    RunWait( @ScriptDir & "\App\Wikipad.exe", @ScriptDir)
    RunWait('regedit.exe /s /e "' & @ScriptDir & '\filename.reg" "AnykeylikeHKEY_ROOT_CLASSES\Windows/.wiki"')
    RunWait("regedit.exe /s Portable2.reg", @ScriptDir)
    
  3. Compiled the updated script
  4. Moved the new exe to the Wikipad Current dir

Violla it works for me. I think the problem was that it used an invallid working directory

What's this portable app's

What's this portable app's status?

Can you please add it to the normal application list?

If it's a beta/portabilize-it-yourself than could someone please re-post a howto? I don't know which file to use and some of the links are dead anyway.

Added!

There's really SFA hope of getting it into the "official" portableapps.com releases list, but I've added right at the bottom of the "beta" list which is this thread, hopefully it'll get moved into the actual list itself when somebody gets around to doing it(!)

It's not in beta - WikiPad is officially fully released, but that's as far as portableapps.com goes wrt official 3rd party releases.

Even though

this is bumping an old thread again, this is required.

This was NOT added to the test release page for the reasons outlined here.

Which I'll quote below just for preservation sake.

Wikipad will not be added to the list for the following reasons:

  • You are not the developer of this app per the original thread, therefore your name should not be in the code in the developer field.
  • You did not put the proper Portable Release version in your code.
  • This is a very outdated release, the last work on it was over 2.5 years ago.
  • This does not conform to the PortableApps.com Format Specifications in either the folder structure or installer.

Please ensure you are submitting proper information, and only on apps that qualify.

Come on

jamcomm, you've been here long enough to know that there is a forum for requesting apps, and that thread is not it.
That is the Test Releases thread, which is where Developers who have actually developed an app can post the links to their work.

Even if you didn't know that going in it, it does say:

Developers with apps that need to be added or updated should post a comment here. Comments will be deleted once the app is added/updated. This is not a place to request apps. Those requests belong in the Request Apps Forum.

In regards to your comments on getting this app on the official releases list, and your impression of the status of 3rd party apps, I think you've completely missed the point of this site.

PortableApps.com is a collaborative site. Almost every app offered here is a modified version of an existing app, with the exception of the a few like the PA menu and the portable apps updater.

All those apps got onto the "official" list because someone adopted the project of portablizing the app, put in time and effort to develop it, bug-fix it, offer it for beta testing, bug-fix it again, and then assume responsibility for it.
Voluntarily.
Not for pay.
Giving their effort freely.

Understandably, there are apps that get started by well-meaning individuals, but then, well, the rest of their lives get in the way.
School.
Family.
Jobs that pay money.
And then these apps are left without a sponsor, until someone else who thinks the app is worthwhile steps up and puts in the effort to adopt it again.
Espreon hasn't been around for a few years, which is why WikidPad Portable hasn't progressed.
This has even happened with "official" apps - InfraRecorder's original developer was no longer available, and it fell behind, until - Guess who? - John T Haller picked it up. For which I am quite grateful.

I'll tell you, one of my favorite apps - Hugin - was being developed, but then it got abandoned. Sad, but I can't demand that someone start developing it! Hopefully, it will get picked up again, or I'll learn enough to do it myself.

You seem to be constantly dissatisfied with the work done on this site.
Well, you are very welcome to learn the skills and contribute, if you think that you can improve things! If you want WikidPad Portable to be an official app, learn the code, develop it, bug-fix it, beta it, bug-fix it again, and take responsibility for it!

But to just sit in the back and complain about other people's work - that really does SFA for this community.

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

Unhelpful response

But the other user was trying to contribute!

It is (presumably) beta software, not ready for official release, and he added it to the list of beta software.

He may not be the developer, but at least he's trying to help - I don't think posting a reply that does "SFA" (what?) for the community is at all constructive.

Sorry it seems unhelpful

And typically, it is quite understandable if a noobie posts a request for apps in the wrong place.
But jamcomm's been here a while and should know better; and enough of his previous posts have been demanding or insulting to the volunteers here that I thought he had missed entirely the point of this site.

As I had quoted from that page, only the actual developers are to post to that list. In fact, the format of the posts specifically asks for the developer.

By posting to the list of the site, you are stating that you are the developer of that portable version and are taking responsibility for the development of that portable app.

If you aren't actually developing the app, then requests for someone to develop it belong in the Request Apps forum.

As for the SFA, that's his term I took from his post. I normally don't use such a crude acronym, and I apologize if you find it insulting.
