GitHub Desktop Portable v1.0.0 is now available!

New in v1.0.0

  • Finally fixed the issue when exiting and the launcher wouldn't clean up and close out. (For real this time! =P)
  • During runtime, when you're browsing GitHub.com, you can now click the green Clone button and select Open in Desktop and it'll open in GitHub Desktop Portable.

IMHO, this topic would be in better company in the "Development" sub-forum. :)

Is there any way you could make a launcher for
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git

I know its kinda retro looking
but I am a Github novice and this one works best for me

It doesn't make a whole lot of system changes

Thanks man, didn't even think to search for one on Github :oops:

edit1:
hmm no one has their code visible

How do I compile the launcher myself?

edit2:
why you have a WTFPL license in the source folder
Isn't MIT pretty much the same?

No problem! :)

Which one are you asking about? If you're referring to the links I shared than just use the official version of the PortableApps.com Launcher.

Yes. The WTFPL is there because I have a template folder structure I pull from anytime I start a new PAF and I have left that license in that template. Plus, GitHub doesn't have an option to select the WTFPL as a license when you start a new repository so I just selected the closet license which was MIT.

They don't use a custom.nsh file. Every "PAF" style portable application will always have the source in the folder ..\AppNamePortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher. You can see here that they do not use one.

Been awhile since I messed around with NSIS or PAF

I always thought the code to compile the portable launcher
was in an nsi file in the source folder

I guess PAF no longer uses NSIS compiler?
or am I confusing 2 different things?

No you're correct. PAFs such as Google Chrome Portable use a custom .nsi file which can be found inside the Source folder. Most applications in the PA.c's App Store are now compiled with the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator which is still NSIS based.
