Shoes app update: Helperdeck

Shoes app update: Helperdeck

Hi list,

I posted about my app 'Helperdeck' some months ago. I'm writing it in
Shoes. Still going strong. Helperdeck is used to help build DIY
amplifier kits. I've made some pretty good progress, and am satisfied
with the app. I thought the list might be interested.

Here's a forum thread at the amp kit store's forum:
http://www.41hz.com/forums/showthread.php?2872-Helperdeck-build-assist-program

Here's the previous mailing list message about Helperdeck:

Cheers!

Hey Kristleifur-

This is great! I just tweeted about it from @hacketyhack...

One thing you might be interested in: did you know you can actually build
binaries of your app, so that people don't have to download both shoes and
your app itself? That might make it a little easier on your users...

It's not the packager, it's actually compiling a binary. I'm not talking
about a .shy, I'm talking about an .exe, a .app, or a .run. Like Hackety
does. ;)

the packager handles the .exe, .app, .run creation as well as .shy. (in
fact, iirc, it creates a shy and injects that into the executable)

it works with a stub application for each platform that it just injects the
code into, that way you can export an application for all platforms without
having to use all of those platforms [in other words, it doesn't compile
anything.]

Thanks for the responses!

btw I tried the packager on Mac OS X Raisins – didn't work :)

Just to make sure: I'll be trying the packager again soon! Also the
Policeman packager. The app directory is a little bloated atm, so I
wouldn't be surprised if an otherwise OK packager implementation would
choke.

I had used the Policeman packager to build Hackety on all three platforms,
and it had been working. I haven't tested it out since the Great Merge,
though... so it might still be broken for a minute.
