Mind Mapping software

Mind Mapping software such as Freemind (http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) would be a good supplement to the applications already available in the portable apps suite. That way I could have a complete mobile office which would be awesome Biggrin

I second that. Would be great, especially since freemind is open source and can encrypt nodes...

Java

FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java.

Unfortunately it will only work on computer with the Java runtimes installed.

You can !

I did this by simply copying freemind and java then editing one batch file.
Have a look here: https://portableapps.com/node/1141

Works a treat for me !

It leaves files behind

It works, yes, but it also leaves files behind. Having the properties files on the stick instead of in a folder on the hard disk would be great. I haven't been able to figure out how this should be done. If you know how, please do tell me. I could use that information.

At least Freemind doesn't use the registry, I think.

Hmmm

I was sure that I had found the command line switch that would allow you to change that.
On checking I havn't.
I'll let you know if I find it.

I'm writing this mainly to bump this request.

I ran into the usual annoying situation with admin rights again today at work, when I would have needed Freemind on my workstation but didn't have the proper rights to install it. Having it available as a portable app would be really great for these situations!

Please don't...

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

OK

I'm sorry for writing the thing about bumping the request. As far as the rest of my post is concerned I don't think it's nonsensical at all. It's about a real problem that I would be very happy to solve by having a portable Freemind with me all the time. Do you at all see this as possible? It is actually a very useful program.

true portable freemind

i have been using freemind from my USB HDD, based on settings discussed here, for quite some time. this is one of the most powerful & very useful application for me, it enables me to use my mind more creatively. i can easily rate this as no. 1 application for me, in terms of usability, above even OOO, TB & FF.

i would love to see this app available as a regular portable app on this web site.

Definitely!

This would make everything complete. To be able to carry around my ideas is perfect. I love Freemind and use it nearly all the time now.
