New Project - after all a Quick Peek

I'm working on this project for months (or is it already a year ???) now and this is after all a Quick Peek of the almost "Beta".

It's a GUI for the platformrebuilder.exe with additional functions for editing and new diagnostic functions.

It will be possible to extend the app with plugins (for all devs interested devs, the plug-in API will be public).
The main app is written in mixed code (managed and unmanaged c++), but plugins must be managed (VC++, VC, VB, ...)

All plugins and the GUI support translation... just need to make a new localization.en-us.xml for your language

Ok, pics tell more than words


Packages:
- enable or disable packages
- Show content of packages, rename files or set file attributes, delete files, ...
- rename/delete packages
... and so on


Registry Preview:
- builds a preview of the registry, like it will be on the device after flashing the rom
- includes .reg, .rgu, .provxml files
- filters for: reg, provxml and XIP, SYS, OEM, EXT
- it will show warnings or errors if there are any in the source files
- you can see if one package is overwriting registry entries of another package
... and so on


File Preview:
- builds a preview of files on the device, like it will be on the device after flashing the rom
- includes .dat, .provxml files
- filters for: dat, provxml and XIP, SYS, OEM, EXT
- it will show warnings or errors if there are any in the source files
- you can see if one package is overwriting a file of another package
... and so on


Settings:
- Main settings and settings for the plugins
- Plug-in version information


Output:
- Shows the output of platformrebuilder.exe
- Also plugins can make new output containers, on this pic you see the output of the Execution plug-in (it is executing CreateRom.bat right now)


This is another simple plug-in. Allows you to change the Shadow order of the packages... This plug-in adds a menu entry to the Tools menu


there is no release date yet, because I don't know how much time I'll have to work on this... beside my family and studying





Best regards bepe

Wow. That looks great.

I sure wish we could get something like that for Samsung phones.

there will also be an update for platformrebuilder.exe, fixing some problems that it had with some non HTC devices.

This GUI is basically for all WM devices that can flash custom roms, just making the OS file system... plug-ins can build the right rom then.

This will be purely for rom building right, not for dumping roms per se?

I guess that anwers my question right, it will allow plugin's for such things then?
