Java SI GUI Snapshot 4

SI GUI Java on Linux

You can grab the pre-release from here:ย GITHUB




Just seconds ago I finished the download tab. sorry, that it is in Germann but I guess you see the progress ๐Ÿ˜‰

Java SI-GUI download tab finished



Started to develop the UI today ๐Ÿ™‚ That is todays work. First part is to have all the settings I need and a UI for that, then download, then manager and then installer. Hope you like it ๐Ÿ˜‰

PS: The UI (should theoretically [REFERENCE] be style-able via CSS). Hope it does not look to awful yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

UnbenanntJava SI-GUI UI
Todays work

Java SI-GUI -> Downloading works


Just a small update: Downloading works now –> PASTEBIN (Do not worry, this is not the final UI ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I am still thinking whether to code the UI in JavaFX or Swing. Anyway, I am thinking of a tabbed UI

  • “Download” –> Downloading
  • “Install” –> Installation
  • “Manage” –> Create shortcuts & delete installations (on Windows a “Try to fix problems” (which installs the MS C++ redistributables shipped with the current version). I think IN VERY FUTURE VERSIONS Jay’s cleanup script would be nice to implement
  • “Settings” –> Obvious I guess ๐Ÿ˜‰

This should simplify everything a bit ๐Ÿ™‚


Survey – Help improve SI-GUI


Today some polls. Keep in mind you can choose every download from the archive, every Thinderbox and stable/testing/pre-release builds. So not totally the current situation, but close to ๐Ÿ˜‰

As someone said, that SI-GUI has too muchย options, ย please answer which of those you want to have included.

I put a description in the brackets, which is an automatic behavior most of the time or something gets explained in more detail


Thanks for giving me some insight ๐Ÿ™‚

First step towards a better download detection


As you can see, Java SI-GUI will be able to detect all active thinderboxes automatically.

*active -> Having a downloadable file in the “current” folder. Just a small step, but progress ๐Ÿ˜‰ [Detection needs under 1ย second]
