Please, no duplicate topics

As this is basically exactly the same thing as the last topic you started, it makes far more sense to continue that than to start another new topic. Please post further updates to that.

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

Not a duplicate topic

The last topic I started was a suggestion/request; this topic is an actual "project thread," which will have download links and such (when there's something to download :)) later on. It strikes me that this makes more sense--keeping discussion about a possibility separate from an actual project page.

Would you like me to edit the other topic and replace it with the contents of this one, so you can delete this one?

SF.net project

I'm going to apply for a SourceForge.net project for this. The name needs to be finalized, so if anybody has a better name, speak now or forever hold your peace... Smile

Anybody who wants to be a developer on this project should email me; once the project is up, I'll add your SF.net account to the developer list.

So...

Is this a go? Cause you said in another thred that the person who created PortaInstall, (who I assume is MIISIM), is one of the develepors for Application Manager Portable. Which I assume is this project? If so, I would love to help in whatever way possible, not really good with programming yet, nor graphics, but I'm learning more into both, but I will still love to help with whatever I can. Even if it's documentation. You can e-mail me at mono(_)purpura(@)hotmail(.)com.-Remove all brackets from e-mail. So if I assume correctly, please let me know, I would love to help.

Sure thing.

This is a go; I'm actually registering the SF.net project right now.

We have MIISIM, rmccue, and thibeaz on the project so far. Create yourself a SourceForge account and email me at paladin225+portableapps@gmail.com and I'll add you to the project once it's approved.

Don't worry, I'm new at programming and graphics myself--my experience mostly lies with web programming/coding. I'm figuring this out as I go along.

If you know anybody else interested in this, just tell them to email me at the address I mentioned above.

An idea for the language

An idea for the language could be AutoIt or AutoHotKey. Both have GUI builders, are capable of renaming, moving, deleting and changing folders/files, can connect to the web to download files. In fact, PortaInstall was written in AutoIt. I'd love to help, but don't know that i'd have time. I finish school on wednesday and start my summer internship the following monday

I've had a few suggestions for that...

I was thinking of going with NSIS, if only because it looks great--it is, after all, designed for installing stuff--but I'll look into AutoIt.

Except...

We don't need the advanced capabilities of VC++ or Delphi.

NSIS is fine--all we need is downloading/extracting capabilities, and INI-parsing (or XML-parsing) functionality. Saves us a lot of extra coding, and we get a nice professional-looking interface on top of it!

And

I don't know anyone of us who can do VC++ or Delphi (no offence). But I know a couple who can do good/very good NSIS.

I might be able to use VC++

I might be able to use VC++ but I couldn't use the Win32 API so we would be writing a CLI program. Smile

wow

I really like the system you've outlined in the planning document. This looks like a success in the making.

Thanks!

I hope whoever reviews this project at SourceForge.net feels the same way! Smile

Sorry about that...

Guess this is a popular project! Blum

You're part of the developer mailing list. Those emails all have the same sender and the phrase [AMP-devel] in the subject, so you can filter them into another folder or tag them or label them or whatever your email service does. Et voila.

It's a good idea to join the conversation, though, since we're going to be deciding how everything works--L&F (branding, website, etc) and the actual code itself.
