Software News   Software News : AppBuilder v2.0 Released
   posted by Allanon on 22-Oct-2017 18:50:20 (430 reads)
APPBuilder is a tool that can drastically increase your Hollywood multimedia language productivity, infact with APPBuilder you can compile and pack your cross-platform project with a single click without bothering with long shell commands.

In a standard environment, if you will to target multiple platforms and you are using plugins, you would have to build your executables and manually you have to pack them including the right plugin for every target OS. This process can lead to mistakes, copying the wrong plugin or putting it in the wrong folder. If you are building your applications for multiple platforms this utility is a must have!

VERSION 2.0 RELEASED (21 Oct 2017)

Updated to Hollywood 7 and added all supported target platforms, updated all plugins and added all missing ones, now APPBuilder remembers the last used projects folder, platform targets are now defined using an external plain text file instead of being hardcoded, due to Hollywood 7 update now also APPBuilder offers full supports to UTF-8 encoding.

Please note that on your first run APPBuilder will download all necessary files and all available plugins from a remote position, this was needed to reduce the package size, my hosting space needs and to allow you to download updates easily.

APPBuilder is available for AmigaOS3 (with and without FPU), AmigaOS4, AROS-i386, MorphOS, WarpOS, MacOS X PPC, MacOS X x86, MacOS X x64, Linux PPC, Linux ARM, Linux x86, Linux x64, WIndows 32, Windows 64. These packages have been built using APPBuilder itself.

For full information and the download links, please visit the APPBuilder Website

That is really cool.

I like how you have an eye for colour and don't make the interface too gaudy. Well done.

One small suggestion - where you are showing "hints" (i.e. "Project Name...") for the edit fields show the font in a half-bright (light grey?) colour instead of making it bold-ish. They should have a lighter emphasis compared to the labels (personal opinion).

Windows does this for edit fields using the 78-EM-SETCUEBANNER function.

Other than that top notch!

Thank you for the suggestion @gregthecanuck, I will apply it in the next version.
AppBuilder is developed with Hollywood and my HGui library, so then 78-EM-SETCUEBANNER can't be applied, instead I've to edit the used theme, maybe in a future version I can also provide a way to change themes if there is interest :)

Is very funny to copy the plugins to hand.

Very cool looking.

Hollywood with AppBuilder etc must be the best attempt of a "killer app" on modern Amigas.
(only "handicap" is that they are multiplatform)
