   posted by softwarefailure on 18-Jul-2021 17:22:54 (1546 reads)

After almost 4 years of development Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to announce the long awaited release of RapaGUI 2.0. RapaGUI is the cross-platform GUI toolkit for Hollywood that allows you to create GUIs with native widgets for AmigaOS, Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android. GUI layouts in RapaGUI are conveniently defined in XML files which are then converted into full-blown GUIs by RapaGUI on-the-fly. It just doesn't get any easier!

RapaGUI 2.0 is a major update with lots of new features, improvements and bug fixes. Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in RapaGUI 2.0:

* support for Android!
* high-DPI monitors are now supported
* support for GTK3 on Linux
* core event handler completely rewritten
* convenient internationalization (i18n) support
* inter-process communication is now supported
* online help support
* dark mode support
* different fonts and font styles are now supported
* new Splitter, Finddialog and Hyperlink classes
* many new features for existing classes
* support for several new Hollywood 9 features
* several new examples
* over 50 pages of new documentation
* lots of other improvements and bug fixes

RapaGUI 2.0 is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux (ppc, arm, x86, x64), macOS (ppc, x64) and Windows (x86, x64) are provided. RapaGUI comes with almost 350 pages of documentation in various formats like PDF, HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that describe the GUI programming basics in detail and provide a convenient function and class reference.

Note that Hollywood 9 is strictly required by RapaGUI 2.0. It won't work with older Hollywood versions. Also note that there are a few minor incompatibilities between RapaGUI 2.0 and 1.x so it might be necessary to adapt your scripts. See the documentation for details.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

Great work.

Just wish Hollywood Designer could make RapaGUI or some kind of WYSIWYG program like microsoft visual studio was out there to help me make apps.

RapaEdit has a preview mode but the project is not finished. It isn't Google Flutter for Dart Native but it might help out. Are you interested in becoming a tester?

Thanks, I think I actually remember having a quick look at this when I was making my Amilion app but it didn't work so cool to see it still being worked on.

There is also my EasyRapa, that is a gui builder but is not WYSIWYG type. The new upcoming version 1.1 has large improvements and, for my taste, is quite functional and easy to use for quick results. Actually is ready but I'm studying the impact of the new version 2.0 of RapaGui.
