GUI Launcher (Old)

GUI Launcher aims at providing an easy solution for building front end GUI for command line tools. It is now replaced by Guit It !

Download windows binaries or python sources. (As this is python, the program is cross-platform). This application does not need any installation. Just unzip the contents of the archiver and run the executable.

This is GPL software. The last version of this software can be found on the home page of this software.

The usage is very easy. Once the application launched, you can modify a set of parameters. For file parameters, you can choose the file by clicking on the “…” browse button.

Once you are happy with these settings (you can check the resulting command line in the corresponding text box), just click on the “Process” button. Then you will be able to see the output in the output window (if not disabled). If the program does require manual entry, you can enter your answer in the input text field, and click on the “Send” button (if the entry fiels has not been disabled).

Well that’s all… Here is the corresponding screenshot :

Settings

The main feature of this simple GUI program is the wide range of settings. This configuration is done through one xml file. The default name of this xml file is "launcher.xml". If you want to use another xml file (usefull for configuring several application with only one executable of launcher), you can provide the name in the first argument of the command line.

The main features are :

  • Support any number of parameters.
  • Browse button for file names parameters.
  • Path configuration.
  • Translation of the strings used in this program.
  • Support parameters like width / height and displau output/input panes.

The default file should be self-explanatory :
