Subject Re: [COMPRESS] Compress GUI?
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2015 19:40:52 GMT
Well, being that I'm the Apache Pivot PMC Chair, I was looking for "cross-fertilization" opportunities.
 So, my preferred GUI environment would be Apache Pivot.  Of course, you're probably not familiar
with it, but I think the resultant GUIs are easier to build and better-looking than Swing.
 And one of the original architects of Pivot then went on to work on JavaFX, so we're pretty
sure that Pivot has a good pedigree....

Subject: Re: [COMPRESS] Compress GUI?

I could possibly come up with some time over the next several weeks to work on the UI. What
technology were you thinking Swing, JavaFX??? I am not really that familiar with compress
so I may need some help with the library itself.

TBH, I hate doing GUI stuff. :-)

I can easily see that a GUI for Compress would be nice, though.  If
people want to work on a GUI and need help dealing with the Compress
library itself, I'll be happy to lend a hand.  The GUI and the Compress
library should be separate artifacts IMHO.
