Speaking of the welcome window, it is an indicative of the program’s primary functions, namely opening applications, packaging using a script or packaging using the Shoes script and maintaining the apps.
Since the terms and modus operandi are a bit different than what you might be used to from other third-party compilers, the utility comes with a comprehensive manual. You can also find further documentation about the program on the developer’s website and use the various samples available before you start working on your own project.
Enables you to create customized packages for your apps
You can compile your application using various sets of commands that are unusual as you do not attach them with dots as usual. You should keep in mind that the tool addresses very basic applications where the app is the window itself, such as in the case of calculators, calendars or clocks, for instance.
Regardless of the type of application you have in mind, you will be happy to learn that you can customize it to your liking. To be more precise, you can use the plethora of styles, colors and classes to improve the overall looks of your utility.
Since the idea behind the app is to allow you to draw windows and the elements in them, you can also employ boxes to lay out various images or text. Moreover, you can further tweak the interface by inserting and editing the background, border, image, shapes, timer, video stream and the text block.
