A very short post to share this first draft of a simple .net library to handle graphs. It allows to add nodes, pins, connections, and events on the graph. Some properties and events are directly accessible through the properties/events pane in visual studio.
It’s probably missing a lot in terms of functionnalities, however the below features are already there:
Nodes, Pins and Connections manipulation (Add, modify, remove)
Selected state, selectors (click, rectangle…)
Events (click, double click, picking on the connections)
So far, the nodes are only boxes, and only contains a main and sub titles. However, there might be other shapes later, with a way to customize the nodes content.
I’m using this component in a scripting tool I’m planning to add to the GameTools release.
If you find this component handy, or if you have feedbacks about it, don’t hesitate to let me know.
I uploaded today a first version of EasyBiz, a small tool I made for managing my activity as Auto-Entrepreneur. It handles invoicing, customers, transactions, reporting, and even comes with a paypal integration. I’ll try to update it with a plugin for tax declaration (Net-Entreprise connector) soon. More info on the project page.
Aside of that, I’ve been working on a refresh of Gametools. Many bugfixes, but also a complete redesign of some of the apps. The most drastic modification is the introduction of a tool to generate and manage icons collections. (the idea is to be able to apply a modification such as the icon background or the icon shape on the whole set automatically). All of this as much vectorial as possible, and with spritemapping capabilities (so it should replace the current spritemapper). I hope to be able to upload a first version after eastern vacations.
I’m glad to introduce SLS: a licensing (and free) licensing solution. I’ve been working on it for about 3 years now, and it has been used by a french SME almost since the beginning (thank you if you read this).
I didn’t think of a community license when I started this project, but I finally changed my mind. So SLS now comes with a completely free community license. There will be limitations in term of number of products/license you can generate, however it should be far enough for indies.
I created a page on this blog about SLS. There isn’t much information now, but i’ll update it soon. Try it out!
