    **To Clarify**

    This app is for people who wanna make mainly personal applications but have no coding experience. This is gradually growing and will soon allow you to make a pretty nifty little application.

    Ok, so this app is /very/ beta, remember that. When it's done, it will be able to do just about anything. For this first release, it can do the following:

    1. Set background color of app
    2. Launch ANY url even tel:// and such schemes
    3. Show Show any image
    4. Execute commands
    5. Notify the system of events

    And like all other apps of mine, it will be open source soon.

    Here is a breif example of how to use the current options in this app. This is how you would go about setting a pre-built background color.

    (All these keys are in Data.plist)

    Code:
    <key>WindowColor</key>
    <string>Red</string>
    that will set the color red. there are red, blue, green, orange, cyan, purple, brown, gray, white, black and some others i dont feel like naming yet

    if you wish to have a little MORE control over what you are doing with the color, this option gives you the option to set the red, green, and blue(rgb) of the color of the background, as well as the alpha(transparency). the values range from 0-1.

    Code:
    <key>AdvancedWindowColor</key>
    <array>
            <integer>1</integer>
            <string>0.5</string>
            <integer>0</integer>
            <string>1.0</string>
    </array>
    that would give an orange background.

    say i want to open google

    Code:
    <key>URLToLaunch</key>
    <string>http://google.com</string>
    simple enough, yes.

    showing an image. HMMMM

    this lets you pick either a bundle image or an image from somehwere else in teh filesystem, and set the x, y, width, and height of it.

    Code:
    <key>BundleImage</key>
    <array>
            <string>icon.png</string>
            <integer>160</integer>
            <integer>240</integer>
            <integer>60</integer>
            <integer>60</integer>
    </array>
    or ...

    Code:
    <key>ImageAtPath</key>
    <array>
            <string>/Applications/MobileSafari.app/icon.png</string>
            <integer>160</integer>
            <integer>240</integer>
            <integer>60</integer>
            <integer>60</integer>
    </array>
    probably the most popular, executing a set of commands, as well as giving you the ability to close teh app afterwards IF WANTED. that part isn't needed.

    Code:
    <key>ExecuteCommands</key>
    <array>
            <string>mkdir somedirectoryorsomething</string>
            <string>Terminate</string>
    </array>
    one for a few purposes is system notification. this is how set language is performed.

    Code:
    <key>SystemNotification</key>
    <array>
            <string>com.apple.language.changed</string>
    </array>
    Hopefully i'll push some more out tomorrow. thanks guys
