PDFCreator?

I doubt PDFCreator can be made portable since it installs itself as a printer driver. Unless you intend to install the driver, create the printer on open...then delete the printer and remove the driver on closing.

I've set it as Not Available. Also made Project Lead Needed text bold, so it's easier to find.

Pshh.

I'm doing HTTrack.

John said he had Abakt Portable ready one time.

PDF Creator needs a PDF driver, John said Wireshark Portable will install and uninstall a driver, so I guess that's ok.

At some point in my life I may be able to do Neverball and Notepad2.

Set you as HTTrack lead.

John added, marked as unconfirmed.

See above comment. If people want to create PDFs on the go, they can use OOP.

Well, until you start, I haven't added you.

He hacked the code to make it portable. Search the forums Blum
I've removed him for now, as I don't think it was PAF format and I don't know whether it is/was going to be maintained.

Already Done

It's called Notepad++ Blum

Seriously, though. Is it really worth the effort since Notepad++ already supports what you're trying to add to Notepad2. And they're both based on SciTE, so they render things almost exactly the same.

What's the difference

What's the difference between the two. The only things I noticed are N2 uses a few different colors for syntax highlighting and doesn't have tabs.

What Function

Notepad++ is heavily customizable so you can make it do pretty much everything you want. And both apps are pretty small, though Notepad2 is smaller (I think it's 300K vs 1.9M).

I think the beauty of them is that one does all kinds of fun stuff and one is just a dead simple drop in replacement for notepad with the cool syntax highlighting as a bonus. While creating a tabbed version of Notepad2 might be a fun way to learn coding, I don't know that it's really needed as that niche is already well filled by Notepad++.

Reinventing

It is kinda reinventing the wheel. You'd be FAR better off contributing to Notepad++ then trying to rebuild it. Notepad++ is the 12th most downloaded app on SourceForge. I don't think Notepad2 would crack the top 500 if it were on SF.

Quick Side Question.

Quick side question about SF Downloads.

The PortableApps.com rank by most downloaded, does that included AbiWord,OOo, and the Mozilla apps?

Nope

Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, Nvu/Kompozer, OpenOffice.org, AbiWord, GIMP and Gaim (not Pidgin) are all separate ranks at the moment. I'm working on combining them (note that Pidgin is now part of the PortableApps.com project instead of Gaim).

Hi Ryan,
RC1 is ready.

I set up a page on https://portableapps.com/apps/games/enigma_portable but it is not published yet cause I'm not sure if this will be ok for John.

... could be done too.

But because of Copyright reasons (the program is GPLed, the name is under copyright) we have to use the name like it is without suffix 'Portable'.
I'm in contact with the author and that are the conditions for using it as Portable.

If this will be ok add me for this job to (the rc is done Smile )

Cause it says that it works as a Windows service. And I am not sure if Windows services can be spawned w/o admin privs.
If it can run portably w/o admin privs I might take on the project.

OpenCD No Longer Developed

I was reading a whole trail of Wikipedia articles tonight, when I came to when about the OpenCD, I forget how.

I read up, just to get some more background info, and to my surprise read the project has been discontinued as of September 27th, 07. I thought this was kind of weird as I e-mailed Chris, the project lead in August, to help out on the project, and he said once the got the forums running again, I could moderate.

Well, thankfully, Chris isn't dropping the whole open source software disc idea all together, there was some issues with Canonical. So, Chris has started a new project I believe just by himself over at TheOpenDisc.com. The site's looking great, much better than the last (you can read about those issues in the article below).

Chris explains all the reasons for dropping the project over here. Is also tells about the new project, issues with Canonical, etc.

Check it out. I believe the list my have to be updated a tad as I don't think Dia was on the OpenCD, which I may make portable, I haven't read a lot of posts about it here.

Hopefully Disc Tree may be released now, although in an e-mail to Chris about half a year ago, he said it was a Canonical project and they were putting some more work into it (i think). The SourceForge page for that is still empty, and it looks like the lead is the original developer of the OpenCD.

Anywho, that's all. Enjoy. Smile

Update:

With my above comment, there are the updates that need to be made.

  • Dia has been added, I'll do it
  • Gaim has been changed to Pidgin, so John's got that covered
  • SeaMonkey has been added, John's got that
  • SumatraPDF has been added, John's got that, too. Blum
  • VLC has been added, guess who has that. Blum
  • GnuCash has been added, I think Illusion of Demise is working on the portable version, but from what I've read, it modifying the app source, which isn't favourable with app updates
  • TrueCrypt has been added, perhaps mark as NA for now

P.S. Ryan, check out the logo he has for Scribus, better?

Nice catch on that. I've updated to the OpenDisc project. Before reading this comment, I did it myself Biggrin

I have to say that all his reasons are completely valid. As I've heard, Canonical is a little hard to deal with.

Oh, and I might send him an email later about that icon. Smile

GNUcash?

Guys,

I know it's not on the CD - but what about adding Portable GNUcash? I understand that IllusionofDemise has just about finished the beta's. The CD is missing a good financial app.

Added

Added as part of the OpenDisc. Requires comment from IllusionOfDemise about whether he recompiles it.

GnuCash is (probably) "done"

Kim: There is no "adding" GnuCash to the CD around here. GnuCash was added to the new OpenDisc project over on it's website. The point of this thread is to portablize all the apps from the disc that are possible (those requiring admin access or install something into the system itself won't be portablized).

Point being: it's already done...no need to request it. Biggrin These guys just need to confirm some stuff with Illusion of Demise before moving forward.

Coolio

Check out the programs section of the OpenDisc site for a better logo. At first release when I saw it, the icon was shoddy.

With

regards to Abackt I wouldn't have thought that John'll do it as it is now discontinued. On a side note I'm hoping to make Toucan 2 feature equal to Abakt.

The OpenDisc Project Lead

Has said he will probably remove it anyways. There's also Abakt 2. He may remove HealthMonitor as well because it now belongs to a commercial company, so there would be no updates. (Only a free version, I don't think it's open source)
