pmp 0.1 released

I just uploaded pmp 0.1 – Poor man’s prism desktop web application creator to github: http://github.com/phako/pmp

A release tarball can be found here: pmp-0.1.tar.gz

What is pmp?

pmp shares some similarities to Mozilla’s Prism. It creates a “standalone” app from a web application. Pmp uses Webkit as its rendering backend.

How do I use it?

To create an edge (that is pmp’s terminus for a captured app), run
pmp-create --url=<url to website> --name=<descriptivename>
You can also create a desktop icon by passing it the --desktop parameter. If you want to use the site’s favicon, use --icon=:favicon

To run the edge, call pmp-run --name=<DescriptiveName>

Known limitations:
It does not work properly with Google’s apps. Google does some weird URL redirects. I’m working on that. Apps known to work are WordPress and TT RSS.
