TinyTask is a small, simple mouse and keyboard macro recorder. Anything you do with the mouse or type on the keyboard while the program is running can be replayed as many times as you choose. Recordings can even be compiled into an executable file.

Notes:

  1. Recordings are not editable (perhaps in a theoretical v2).
  2. May not record mouse wheel movement on some mice.

For simple, repetitive tasks that you don't need a big program to fully automate, this can be a surprising time saver. Two caveats: 1. Do not touch the keyboard or mouse while the macro is running. 2. If you want to stop a process in the middle, hit ctrl+shift+alt+P. Very, very happy with it.

Updated: Creation of ini is not needed as there's a setting in "Options" > 'Remember Settings in .INI'

I really love this app, but it doesn't come with multiline support. (You can only automate 1 line at a time and can't do paragraphs

I was forced to use a custom-version of Breevy that is 100% portable.

WARNING: this no longer comes as a direct download of the zip, but as an executable downloader which downloads the zip, but in the process you have to decline installation of about four different annoyanceware toolbars and addons. Also the downloader itself is not portable; it leaves folders in AppData.

When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.4.0

billon on 7 Feb 2017
  • 787KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries, and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

tommyD: Disadvantages are that it breaks some programs, and it may be slightly more CPU-intensive to decompress libraries and executables on the fly.

I agree with wf; where is operaportable?

Awfully convoluted CLI solutions ;-)

| c:\>artsage64 mypicture.jpg
| (Exit with..."Esc" key...;-)

Plain batch file:

| REM art.bat yourpic.jpg
| @echo off
| artsage64 %1

Prompting batch file :

| REM artp.bat (type input file name after prompt)
| @echo off
| set /p arg= pix ?
| artsage64 %arg%

See also artsage.txt doc included in the artsage64.zip package, where all intricate CLI options will be revealed...;-)
