logoJarte Portable 4.5 has been released. Jarte is a lightweight, tabbed word processor based on the WordPad engine included with Windows. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. Jarte is freeware for business and personal use.

Jarte is packaged with permission from Carolina Road Software LLC

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


Screenshot You expect a word processor to be able to handle Word documents, font and paragraph formatting, spell checking, print preview, and more. While Jarte performs all the standard functions well, the most important aspect of Jarte is the numerous small details that make it an efficient and enjoyable tool for creating documents. Small details like:

  • Tabbed document windows for easy access to your open documents
  • Larger buttons for the most commonly used functions
  • Instant dictionary and thesaurus word lookup (integrates with free WordWeb)
  • Spell check and text search tools that do not park themselves on top of the text you are trying to edit
  • Single click bookmarking that make bookmarks both useful and usable
  • Instant access to the documents and folders you designate as your favorites
  • Instant access to the fonts you designate as your favorites
  • Use of the mouse scroll wheel button to copy and paste text

Jarte Portable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Thanks for your work on this Patrick. I made some additions including correct placement of the Data directory (moving it back and forth) and advanced path portablization. Jarte itself portablizes relative to drive letter. Jarte Portable portablizes relative paths all the way to the PortableApps base directory (Start.exe) or equivalent, which means it will portablize on cloud drives between PCs, too.

You've been keeping busy this week with new apps. Taking advantage of some down time?

PS. You totally skipped adding Cppcheck to the top banner. Blum

Oops, forgot Cppcheck. I've added it.

No down time for me. Just making time for more new apps since people like em.
