software OS4   software OS4 : AmiPad 2.0
   posted by amigang on 14-Jul-2012 13:05:03 (3344 reads)
My Hollywood app designed for AmigaOS4 owners, this is AmiPad. Basically I realized that a lot of these so called apps on these tablets devices are just web site powered apps with fancy icons, so that started me think what useful HMTL5 apps and web site could i find that work on Amiga web browsers, so here is version 2.0.


Version 2.0 Features :-
- Completely Rebuilt to fix certain issues
- No more black out flicking when in use
- Handy quick right click scroll through the web apps
- White or Black Border Design
- Information / about bar
- New and improved Icons (by TommySammy)
- iPad inspired design and animation
- 36 Quick Internet links
- Useful and Fun HTML5 powered apps
- All sites tested and proven working on OS4.1 with MUI-OWB 1.9 on an X1000.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Can you explain it to me? From what I understand your program display "tablet like" window with icons that calls web-browser. Is there anything more to it?

When I run the program and click on one of the icons, MUIOWB gets launched as expected but doesn't go to address. How do I set-up OpenURL prefs to correct this, ie: what settings do I need to set?

Hope the above image helps with the setting for OpenURL, you can get it from here and make sure you have the pref set up. I believe this is part of the OS from 4.1 update 2, someone correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure I read that some where.

Basically your spot on, its not an amazing app, this is after all my first app made on hollywood, maybe the videos I made slightly over does it, but this is basically what Apple, Google and Microsoft are pertty much doing, making a pretty GUI with "apps" slightly redesigned in said GUI but basically its just web sites. The funny thing is just a few months ago one of my mates was amazed by a Fat Booth app that basically makes you look fat they paid 2 for it, well in my "app" you can basically do the same thing via http://www.photofunia.com/ and a lot more for free and it all works on Amiga browers.

I think web apps could really help Amiga users fill the void with native apps, and why not have a slightly more fancy way of lanuching these apps.

With your settings it still just launches MUIOWB but doen't try to go to the site the App wants it to go to!

Edit:

After installing OpenUrl from the depot nothing happens when clicking the icons. You should use UrlOpen instead (if it's possible).

@amigang

I was banging my head against a wall as to why AmiPad 1 & 2 didn't work.

Finally, today I worked out why this wasn't working for me on the X1000.

I had installed OpenURL as needed, but I was configuring the URL prefs program in prefs thinking it was OpenURL's when it isn't!

I didn't know until reading this thread today that URLOpen is built in to AmigaOS4 and so it has a prefs program too! I then realised that openurl has it's own prefs program hidden behind some icons in prefs - duh!

I am still quite new to AmigaOS4...

As mentioned URL prefs is used by URLOpen, built into AmigaOS. After realising this I tested URLOpen in the Shell - it worked fine to launch website in MUI-OWB which proved my config was correct, just set in the wrong place for AmiPad...

Basically from the openurl library download you need to install the openurl program prefs in sys:prefs, and also the openurl program in c: I didn't replace openurl.library as the version already in libs for URLOpen is the same version.

Then you need to set the openurl Browser and ARexx prefs like amigang showed above. I changed the path to sys:internet/muiowb/owb for my X1000. I click the box to the left of OWB in the Browser tab to be green to enable the browser. I then tested c:openurl from the shell and it worked to go to Amigaworld's website. I then tried AmiPad and clicking the icons then worked for me using MUI-OWB!

I admit the AmiPad application looks quite pretty and it got me interested enough to try it out. It's function from what I see is a Browser URL favourites with clickable icon stored together in a ipad tablet form for easier navigation.

Not sure it works for me since the tablet form is difficult to place on the desktop - Can you save it's position on the desktop for example? Perhaps as a dockie that can expand into the amipad tablet when clicked...and being able to add urls and icons of your own to it - then I can see it being quite useful and integrated.

Thanks for the work in making AmiPad - I hope to see some further enhancements!



Catcha,
Epsilon

Maybe it will not expand itself to Amipad but have you tried to add Minimizer docky (in Utilities/Dockies) into one of your Amidock panels ?

Also have you tested this one ?

@amigang
I made a small program called "MiniAmi" once trying to mimic Symbian interface of some Nokia cell phones. Apps running on it would have been as plugins. I didn't bother to release it. I wanted to test ideas of small devices only.

@ amigang

nice that Hollywood Designer can create such an app. Request for next version, to be useful to me though I'd need to be able to modify the different website links to those that suit me. I know I can do this by going into the Holywood script and changing it from there but for the end user this should be done via the app settings perhaps

Thanks for your comments guys

Version 3 should have
New and improved apps icons graphics
At least an extra 12 more web links, html5 apps to be added, if not more
More infomation bar details
maybe a clock display for the info bar
submenu/subfolder likely
Amiga style border design
Alternate background designs
Improved ReadMe with Openurl setting and details
**Resizeable
*Saveable desktop position
*Saveable setting
*Ability to change web links and save

*=yet to figure out how to do them in Hollywood.
**= but very close.

Tried the above and MUIOWB is launched but does not go to the website, have openurl prefs configured:

Name: MUIOWB
Path: OS4.1:Internet/muiowb/owb
ARexx port: OWB.1

Show: SHOW
To front: SCREENTOFRONT
Open URL: OPEN NAME "%u" NEWPAGE
New window: OPENURL "%u"

Are these setting correct, I have the same issue with Simplmail and clicking on a URL link within a mail and trying to get MUIOWB to show link?
