Re: Textosaurus (Textilosaurus) - simple text editor

might as well just copy ' msvcp140.dll ' and ' vcruntime140.dll ' to ' textosaurus.exe ' folder -- you can get those files by searching any system with the runtimes installed or from any recent Firefox folder.

Your point 3. is probably the last standing hurdle to portability in our sense, then... it sounds a lot similar to Windows '%APPDATA%'. :?

Worse, because dependencies of dependencies are also handled this way, programs/libraries tend to require very recent versions, and different versions aren't binary compatible This is in practice not a problem. Vast majority of apps available for example in Arch Linux does depende on the same versi...

Re: Is Linux getting friendlier to portability?

Basically, Linux is MORE friendlier to application bundles and addresses portability problem better than Windows. 1. It allows to clearly separate files which belong to application from the rest of the system. 2. It allows to easily create packages for all major Linux distributions (https://github.c...

and why the fuck you did it?
actually don't care, downvoted
Well, what to say. Many people wrote me that word Textilosaurus associates with "textile" rather than with "text", which is propably true. Hence I decided to rename project rather earlier and make the name clearer.

Re: Textilosaurus - simple text editor

Re: Textilosaurus - simple text editor

My personal appraisal: although I'm fully aware Textilosaurus isn't a Notepad replacement, two of the three basic features I consider when evaluating a text editor are missing.
