Permission Requested

As Rockmelt is freeware, it can't be repackaged without permission (it's illegal, and we only do legal software). I've dropped them a note to request permission for us to do it or offer to assist them with packaging it for portable use. Hopefully we should hear from them shortly.

In the meantime, we have the widest array of portable browsers available in our Internet section.

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

Small internet world...

A few days ago I found out about RockMelt and installed it on my system. I quickly adopted it as my main browser and wish to make it into a portable application (using PAF). I found this thread searching for RockMelt packaging license.

I am doing the conversion and hopefully will be able to get permission from RockMelt to repackage the app, otherwise I may have to look into doing the same kind of installer as Chrome, where it downloads the files from the internet, therefore not repackaging RockMelt.

We've Tried

We've contacted them multiple times at their partner email address and received no response. Same with Twitter. As have other people. You can accomplish much the same thing with another browser and extensions, though.

hmm

I contacted them as soon as their first beta (by invite) was released, back in February. I had also reported a bug in their browser, but I never heard from them either.

Write Them

If you want it, you'll need to bug them about it. Via email, facebook and twitter.

Portable Rockmelt

Actually, since Rockmelt is based off of Google's open-source engine Chromium, which was used for Chrome, it should be legal to make it portable if Google allowed Chrome to be made portable.

The derivative is no longer

The derivative is no longer open source though, so the same applies as with any closed source applications.
You need permission from the developer unless a license agreement already allows the necessary redistribution/modification/repackaging etc.

If at first you do not succeed, use more sticky tape.
