Hi there.

Just wanted to say that I've just put up a very new client for Windows. It's WYSIWYG, and the UI is still pretty, um, new, but it's a good start. I'm hoping to put a lot of work into it this weekend. This is really just a preview.

Check it out at http://www.uil.net/ljclient. It isn't currently named, and I'm using images from other clients; all that will change sooner rather than later. :-)

Looks like you put a crapload of work into it. It also looks rather cool. Too bad I don't run Windows at home, so I won't be able to try it out. :)

Nice client. Still need to fix a few GUI things. The source isn't sizable. But overall the idea is awesome.

Thanks for your comments!

Actually, the source is sizable... you can even detatch it, and doc it somewhere else. The pegboard putton will "lock" it in place, and you can then size it up and down, etc.

I should have a new build in a day or so that's a lot more functional.

GREAT start Timmy Toronto...

I do custom art if you have something in mind you need figured out (corporate identities, logos, etc). I'd love to help you out since I know JACK about the flip side of these things.

Very impressive work... Can't wait for beta.

Thanks a ton, Kelly Seattle! :-)

Feel free to email me at support at uil dot net with your contact info, and I'll send you some details about what I'll need! Prolly just a series of icons, logo, and splash screen.

Thanks again. Look for something probably Saturday evening.

Looks much better than my client- of course, mine is far from finished, you can log in(crashes if you have a typo in your user name or password) and post(subject and entry only, no music, user pic, mood option, security level, etc...)...

In a couple weeks it should be ready for others to actually see it, after I add a few more features, kill a few bugs, and get it tested on other platforms- its done in Perl with Tk for the gui, so it should run on multiple platforms without modification.

Looks pretty good, though I haven't had a real play. Just a couple of questions
  1. What language / Environment are you using
  2. Why don't you want to make it OpenSource?


I'll let you know if I find anything majorly wrong, but it looks pretty solid.

Thanks!

1) Delphi.

2) Because the toolkits required to build the product are not open source, so it won't do much good for most people. The part that I may open up is the LJ class I created.
