SI-GUI statistics


I have not talked mich about SI-GUI statistics lately so here some numbers ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since logging every action (this can be turned off)…

  • 6990 parallel installation have been started (and 6022 of them finished successfully)
  • 6327 downloads have been started with 4833 fining their way in the download statistics [if someone has problem downloading LibreOffice, please tell me]
  • Most people use English (4338), Frenchย  (1669), Spanish (1251) and German (1327)

There have been SI-GUI version with bugs in reporting, which could hint to the numbers are not 100% accurate (to low and not to high BTW)

I hope it is still useful for the 33 people, which used this tool in the last week. Do you think it will stay relevant when auto updating nightly builds are implemented?




Original SI-GUI has new master locations


Just updated the master urls. Hit the “Update List of versions” button to get it and start testing



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™‚


SI GUI Java – Archive Downloads


So this time all the available daily and archive dowloads (on page 2, there are 707!)

Continue reading SI GUI Java – Archive Downloads


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]



Hello everyone,

I am neither dead not did I abandon LibreOffice :). I simply lacking time. Anyway SI-GUI just got SI-GUI. So “LibreOffice Server Install GUI” (which I guess was against 3rd party tools branding guideline) got “Separate Install GUI” (Thanks for the name BTW ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). It has the same bugs (and maybe due to the name change a bit more).

I admit I try toย monetize SI GUI a bit, in the sidebar of my blog you can find links to my Amazon wish list or a direct link to gift cards. On the download page as well as on the sidebar there is a “paypal donate” button. Feel free to use them (Paypal has a quite high fee). This software will ever be free and I will continue to support it in the future, no matter if you use them or not.

Thanks for not closing the page up to now, here is one last thing. Close before Christmas I collected the stats for SI-GUI again: LINK


This blog post and the changes @ SI-GUI have been planned to go live before Christmas, but thanks to university I did not find time.


I managed to get the update working, but it installs as a “new” program. So please manually uninstall

  • “Seperate Install GUI” (Spelling error – Sorry)
  • “Server Install GUI” (After updating to “Separate Install GUI”)
  • And any version which has a ([NUMBER]) in it (like “Server Install GUI (2)”)

It does not harm, if you keep using this, but they won’t get updated. So “Separate Install GUI” (as seen in the following screenshot) is the “future” version of SI-GUI




I am looking forward to see your comments. I will publlish the changes to git after publishing this post ๐Ÿ™‚
