General Software Discussion / Program to open groups of programs.
« on: February 05, 2015, 02:12 PM »
I was wondering if there is some kind of program I can easily start a bunch of other programs with that I generally need at the same time.
Say for example when I'm doing android development. I want Android Studio to start, I want my genymotion emulator to start and I want XChat to start since that automaticaly connects me to an android chatroom.
Then when I don't need those anymore it would be cool if I could close them together also (optional).
After that I will probably want to play a game so it should start Steam and whatever else I configured.
Or when I arrive at work it should start all workspecific applications I configured + everything that's in the android development group. So basically nested grouping.

I guess I could easily make some autohotkey scripts for those (assuming AHK can detect if a program is already launched) but was wondering if there are already streamlined applications available  :)

What do you do in situations where you have to open multiple programs together?

Developer's Corner / Android package name
« on: October 03, 2013, 04:52 PM »
I'd like to finally contribute to NANY this year and am thinking of making a simple android app...or two.
I know some java but don't know much about android yet.

Before starting my app, I need to give it a package name.
Which, if uploaded on google play, must be a unique identifier.
Android package names follow the Java package name convention. Usually this is the reverse domain name for the app. Default it is com.example.appname.
I've also seen e-mail adresses being used like com.domain.name.appname.
I'm not planning to get a domain for my apps and don't like to use my email address.
It's just a convention and I believe anything works as long as it is unique and follows the rules(about hyphens and caps and all) but I'd like to use a good convention that I can use in the future.

Currently I have: miva2.apps.appname
with "miva2.apps." litterally and "appname" replaced by the actual app name ofcourse.

Is this good? Any suggestions? Any things I need to know about package names?
I'd just like to know the opinion of people here :) Good luck to other NANY contestants!

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: change cursor depending on program
« on: February 26, 2012, 08:49 AM »
Hello everyone, i would like my cursor to change depending on the program I'm using.

For me personally: I was playing Realm of the Mad God and noticed my cursor is not very visible in the game. So i want to have a different cursor when I am playing that game and go back to my old cursor when I quit playing (or when i alt+tab to a browser for example)
Or is it possible to make a small batchfile that changes my cursor to a predefined cursor and when i execute it again it goes back to my previous one?
I have never really looked in the power of batchfiles so I don't know if that is possible.

I'm sorry i didn't research in too much detail. I searched for "cursor" and found some interesting things but not exactly what I was looking for. My apologies If i missed the answer.

Also, Thank you very much to all programmers who make free software. Very much appreciated   :Thmbsup:
