2015 NANY CHALLENGE (New Apps For The New Year)

This page is currently under construction. Please see this thread on our forum for NANY 2015 entries and discussions.

NANY 2015 - New Apps for the New Year Roundup

Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here).

NANY is really the funnest thing we do on this site, and it's one of the few times we can all play together.  There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.  You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool.  It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever. Best of all, everyone who participates gets a free commemorative coffee mug.

Congratulations to everyone who has participated in NANY this year. I hope everyone had fun!  On behalf of everyone on the site, I thank you for helping us kick off the new year.

You can see the list of entries here: http://www.donationcoder.com/nany2015
(note this is still a work in progress so entries may be added or updated in the next couple of days)



And please show some appreciation to those who participated by sending them a small donation..


NANY 2015 Release: Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination)

Application Name Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination)
Supported OSes Windows 7.  Probably works, but not tested on, Windows XP/Vista/8/10
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) is a program that allows you to build launch profiles that can include the following: 1) Launching applications, files, folders, URLs, etc., 2) The closing/killing of processes, and 3) Starting and stopping of services.  You control the order and you can also insert two types of delays in between actions: 1) Time-based delays (wait n number of seconds before going on) and 2) CPU-usage delays (wait until the CPU usage gets below a certain percentage).  Hotkey support is extensive; each launch profile can have its own hotkey or you can use one hotkey to launch multiple profiles.  Profiles can be launched via the main interface, hotkeys, or the tray icon.  Usage examples include:

  • Startup profile to control the timing and order of which apps you want to start after booting your computer.
  • Pre-gaming profile to close/kill/stop unwanted processes and services.
  • Post-gaming profile to open/start those same processes and services.
  • URL groups to launch sets of websites.
  • Development profile to start up your IDE, debugger, etc.

Screenshots

Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run Splat.exe to start the application.

Uninstallation
Uncheck the "Start with Windows" option if you enabled it and then delete the folder you unzipped it to.

ToDo
  • Commandline parameter support to run a profile without seeing the GUI.

Notes
  • If you plan to use the service starting/stopping functionality, you must run this program with administrator rights.

NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (for Android phones/tablets)

I decided to combine my recent experiments with alternative programming languages/platforms with NANY this year, and release an Android app for NANY 2015.

My first Android App is tentatively called "When Last".


It's a simple app that helps you keep track of the last time(s) you performed some activity (like changed the batteries on your smoke detector).
This is actually an idea that I think was discussed on the forum in the context of a desktop app several years ago -- and it may have actually been coded as one at that time?

NANY 2015 Release: Drawskrit

My NANY contribution for this year is a simple description language for drawings and diagrams (which I've named Drawskrit). My main goal is to be able to describe diagrams with text. The description language should be natural and simple (I don't want a diagram programming language).

Its current state is experimental. I have a JavaScript implementation that demonstrates the current specification. I'm afraid it's not very useful yet though. I'm not sure I'll ever get it to a state where it'll be powerful enough to specify real-world non-toy diagrams without becoming a complex monster language.

A few of the current obvious shortcomings:
  • needs more shapes (e.g. arrows)
  • current text alignment sucks (specification bug)
  • dotted/dashed looks horrible with thick lines (implementation bug)
  • needs more documentation (e.g. layers)
  • JS implementation needs to be decoupled from the HTML demo page

If I ever get it to a state where it's actually useful, I'm planning to implement it as a cross-platform tool which can be integrated into an automated build process.

A non-formal specification (i.e. a description) and the JavaScript implementation can be found here:

https://github.com/phitsc/drawskrit

Drawskrit is open source.

If someone wants to play around with it please direct your browser here:

http://rawgit.com/ph...er/js/drawskrit.html

As a first example, paste the following text into the big text box on the left of the above web page:

orange background filled shapes
_
small blue circle small green circle
tiny purple square big red triangle tiny purple square
small olive smile

==
fat navy huge empty dashed circle

NANY 2015 Release: apng2gif and webp2gif

Application Nameapng2gif and webp2gif
Short Description Batch-convert animated PNG and WebP images to GIF
Supported OSes Windows
Web Page a bit more about the software
Download Link apng2gif.exe and webp2gif.exe
System RequirementsNothing special, just Windows 2000 and later
Author http://www.donationc...tion=profile;u=27425

Description
Check out these 3 animated pictures (actually 2, because I cannot upload a .webp as an image apparently - despite the png extension, it is a WebP).

campfire.gifcampfire.png

I bet you can't. That's because the companies behind the 3 most widely used internet browsers are unable to reach a consensus about what file format should web designers use for simple animations. There is GIF, but that is limited to 256 colors, the compression is not stellar and it does not support full alpha. Then there is animated PNG introduced in Firefox years ago. Adopted by Opera, but who cares now, right? Chrome did not want to lag behind, but for reasons unknown to me and apparently many others, instead of adopting animated PNG, they created their own format WebP. Firefox (of course) refused to adopt WebP. Internet Explorer (as always) plays dead and does not care about innovation, so neither animated PNG nor WebP is supported.

So, here we are. If you want to have a small animation with more than 256 colors or full transparency channel on your web page, you are in trouble. You can either give up on the quality side and just use GIF. Or, if you absolutely want the best quality, you can prepare 3 separate files and pick the right one on the web server depending on the web browser used by the visitor (you can also do it on the client side with javascript, but eeek).

Here, webp2gif and apng2gif come to help you. If you decide to use for example WebP as the primary format for your graphic assets, you can use webp2gif to quickly generate GIF alternatives for all WebPs.

The tool(s) can scan all files in a folder and convert them. There are ways to skip already converted files so you can re-run the same command after you have made changes to your animations and it will convert just the changed/added files. It can also skip all non-animated images.

Either command line switches or hacky renaming tricks can be used to adjust the behavior of the tool. More info on the home page (or just ask in this thread).

Features
Converts animated images in PNG or WebP format to GIFs for those conservative Internet Explorer visitors to your website/blog.

Planned Features
Open to suggestions.

Screenshots
Command line tool, so nothing to see here.

Usage
Installation
Not needed.

Using the Application
You can either use it from a command line or you can drag and drop files or folders on it.

Uninstallation
Delete it.

Tips
Rename it, put it on the desktop and drag and drop folders with animations on it.

NANY 2015 Release: Active Text Notes

Application Name Active Text Notes
Short Description Display text from a generated text file in a non-interactive mode
Supported OSes WinXp and above
Web Page https://sites.google...activetextnotes/home
Download Link https://sites.google...vetextnotes/download


Description
We already have many electronic post-it-notes like notes for our computer. Most work just like paper paper version. Well they do most of the job, we normally require from them. They act as a static object, the text of which are added/ edited by us manually.

Well I needed similar desktop note but active. I wanted it to show the text content from a text file. The text file will get altered either manually by me or from another program. Not a big deal here. Well I wanted more. I want the note to run the program generate the text and display it. But, it should not disturb me. It should do it's work silently and update the text on the note on the desktop. I will, when I feel like, will glance at it to get the information.

My free app "Overlap Wallpaper" gave me an idea. I made Active Text Note, which is similar to it, but shows a text file content.

Features
Active Text Note runs a given program and displays the output text file on the desktop. We can display directory listing of a network folder, auto backup log file text, latest text info. from a url etc.
I made few helper programs for downloading url, html to text conversion, text extraction etc.

Screenshots

Using the Application
In settings option set the program to run and the text file name to be read. You can leave program name blank.



NANY 2015 Release: Delete After Days

Application Name Delete After Days
Short Description Drag and drop files into the basket to delete them after given days.
Supported OSes WinXp and above
Web Page https://sites.google...ite/deleteafterdays/
Download Link https://sites.google...teafterdays/download

Description
I download many files for work, leisure and checking purposes. Many times I do not get time to check them and they just occupy space in the download folder. When I feel like, I delete them on older file dates. Now some of the download though done today (say), show the original zip/exe date, which may be six months old or maybe some years old.

So the deletion as per file date deletes the ones which I may have download last week.

I needed something where I can mark the files to auto delete after few days, months etc. So I do not have to worry on my folder filling up with old files, as I mostly copy the work related files to their respective folders.

I searched and found there are many who are searching for the same, but till date MS also did not respond.

I made "Delete After Days".

Features
Drag and drop files on the icon on the desktop. It will prompt you for days after which they will be deleted. The files remain where they are and you can copy / move them. If left for more than specified days, they get deleted, automatically.

Screenshots

NANY 2015 Release: MarkdownBuddy

Application NameMarkdownBuddy
Short DescriptionTool for viewing the parsed version of a markdown document
Supported OSesWindows 7 (Should work in Vista/8 also, but untested)
Web Pagehttp://thinkshui.net...tware/markdownbuddy/
Setup FilePortable
DescriptionMarkdown has taken off in a big way, and I use it in everything from publishing posts on websites to documentation in my code to writing fiction.  I love the descriptive nature of the formatting, and that all of the files are in plain text!  In many cases, however, I like to write in different barebones tools- but I can't see how it looks when it's formatted without opening it in some other editor.  I like the editors that have the real-time preview, but my favorite ones to write in don't have that facility.

On the mac, there is a application called Marked.  It is a Markdown Previewer. Now, you might think as I did- what is the use in having something that's not an editor?  It just previews?  But after you get further into markdown and the various tools out there, it quickly becomes evident that such a tool is invaluable if not essential.
FeaturesImplemented
  • Allows you to pick a file to be previewed
  • Allows the preview to be refreshed manually
  • Allow the export of the parsed document (HTML or PDF)
  • Specify an opacity of the window
  • Allow the changing of the background of the window
  • Allow the user to choose to update the document when it is saved

Planned
  • Allow the user to specify whether the window should always be on top or not
  • Allow the changing of options in the parsing of the document
ScreenshotsMarkdownBuddy1.png
NotesRequires .NET 4.5.


Original Precis:

I've gotten into Markdown in a big way, and one thing that I miss from my mac when I'm writing on windows is Marked.  So just like last year when I did the overlay tool from a tool that I found on the Mac, I'm going to do something similar to Marked for Windows.

From the Marked site:
Marked is a previewer for Markdown files. Use it with your favorite text editor and it updates every time you save. With robust features for previewing, reviewing and exporting beautiful documents, you can work in plain text while reveling in rich formatting.

NANY 2015 Release: ROTTools


Application NameROTTools
Short DescriptionDiagnostic Tools for interfacing with the ROT for developers
Supported OSesWindows 7 (Should work in Vista/8 also, but untested)
Web Pageplaceholder
Setup FilePortable
DescriptionThe Running Object Table (ROT) is a way for applications on different threads to communicate with each other- applications can register objects in the table, to be accessed by moniker from other threads and applications.  It's a technique in decline (personally I'd use a WCF application or something like that now), but dealing with other implementations and legacy applications, I have to deal with it every now and again.  This time when I had to deal with it, I realized that the SDK package from MS had done away with the ROT viewer.  And the only one that I could find was an old one that I'd downloaded years ago, written in Delphi.  I'm not even sure that I could find it again!

But accessing the ROT, while sort of arcane, isn't very hard.  So I made my own ROT viewer tool.  I'm also planning to put more in it possibly, as I need it or as requested.  Right now, its basic- I'll refine it for the release, but if you click the refresh button, it should display all objects accessible in the ROT.  The other function is a bit less polished- if you enter something in the textbox at the top, and press the 'i' button, it will try to access that object in the ROT and display the information retrieved.  It will display it in red if there is a problem accessing the object, as there sometimes is.  Right now the only requisites for error are (a) not found by moniker (b) the moniker passed in could not be parsed, or (c) the interface on the IUnknown retrieved cannot be queried.
FeaturesImplemented
  • Shows objects in the ROT
  • Allows the user to query by moniker, and shows in red if the object could not be fully queried

Planned
  • Allow the user to specify whether the window should always be on top or not
  • Specify an opacity of the window
  • ...?
ScreenshotsROTTools1.png
InstallationWith .NET 4.0 installed, unzip application to location and run.
NotesRequires .NET 4.0.
This is a development tool for a dying technology, so there might not be anything registered in your ROT, and that's OK.  Just wanted to have an accessible tool for those of us who need it. :)

NANY 2015 Release: Hotrod Panel (for Android phones/tablets)

This is a little toy app, based on the same code I use for my more serious WhenLast android app.  Hotrod Panel lets you create custom imaginary control panels for your android-based car screen:

NANY 2015 Release: Tox Profile Launcher

Application NameTox Profile Launcher
Short DescriptionTox launcher to handle multiple profiles.
Supported OSesWindows 7/8
Web PageN/A (for now)
Setup FileTox Launcher
Requires µTox
DescriptionI recently started using Tox in place of Skype, mainly because of privacy issues. Now, Tox is still in development and it looks as if they will be supporting this in the future, however, I'm using it now, and that functionality is important for me.

This Tox launcher handles all profiles for Tox. Natively, it only supports one profile, which consists of two files located in %appdata%\Tox. What this launcher does is archives those two files, each named respectively for what you name them via the gui. There is no limit to how many profiles you can have. To load them, simply start the launcher and double-click the profile in the listview control. To import, export, or create a new profile, just click the respective buttons.
FeaturesImplemented
  • Import/export existing profiles
  • Create new profiles
  • If there are no saved profiles, a text will appear in the listview to let you save the current one
  • Window may be moved by clicking anywhere on it that isn't a button (it's borderless)
  • Uses non-installed custom font to match the gui
ScreenshotsToxProfUIFinal.png
NotesRequires µTox.

Tox is in development, which means it may be buggy.
I have not contacted the creators in any way, nor have I used any of their source.
