QRemoteControl-Server

Hello,

I would be very interested in adding my application to PortableApps.com
A portable version is already available and as I am the developer I can ensure that it is fully portable. Please let me know how I get started.

Best Regards
Strahlex

Program: QRemoteControl-Server

License: Open Source/GPLv3

Description: The Server part of QRemoteControl, an remote control applicaion for your smartphone.

Website: http://qremote.org/

Other: Fully portable, stores settings.ini in application folder.

To get started

Since the program isn't in PA.c format already, getting the application into the PortableApps.com Format would be your first step. The resources that are available on the Development page should contain all of the information you need to get started. Specifically, the Launcher Reference manual and the Development Forums are good sources of information.

A couple of starting tips to work with:
1) Since your program doesn't use the registry, that will make your job much easier in the long run, and you can safely skip over anything mentioning the registry (unless Qt uses the registry)

2) Since the settings.ini is stored in the application folder, you'll have to save it in the Data folder using the FilesMove command in the launcher.ini file. There are examples of this in the documentation above.

3) Once you get your first version up, I'd recommend that you make a forum post in the Beta Forums so that people can test and give you feedback as you go along.

Best of luck to you, and welcome to the PA.c community.

I have added my current testing release to the Beta Forums. How can I go further?

Right now, what you can do is

Right now, what you can do is wait for people to download and use the program from the Beta Forums and give you feedback about usage or formatting. Hopefully, people will leave meaningful feedback for you. At least a few devs will probably tell you if the format is correct; I may be among them.

Uses lots in the registry FYI

Are you sure

that Qt uses the registry? I think it actually does only read from the registry. QSettings uses only an ini-file if you configure it. By default it would use the registry on Windows. Maybe that is what you have experienced with?

I will try to study the wiki pages.

Absolutely

take a look at librecad one of my releases https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/librecad-portable
You will see in the ini file how I handle the entries

also may want to take a look at this page from the launcher manual

You are right, there are such registry entries. However with Qt5 do not appear. Btw. interesting that Qt 4.8 had Trolltech entries as Qt was a part of Nokia since 4.4. However I have seen that QtProject entries exist right now,but I'm sure whether they exist only because of the Qt SDK or not. I have to check on a clean machine.

Not every QT app uses the registry - check out Pentobi Portable.

I tested it for hours trying to figure out why I couldn't see the usual TrollTech registry stuff. In the end I just posted it because nothing I did made the registry entries appear that I expected to appear.

Missing files in the 2.3.0 release

Sorry for the broken files. If some has downloaded them, please download again for working files.
