tool launcher standalone gamma
Credits: dottore for the Elementa lib
This is GammaLauncher, a simple application that allows to launch vvvv gamma instances with specific arguments from a simple GUI.
When the application first starts, it generates a config.xml file next to it. This file contains path to your gamma insatallations (should be C:\Program Files\vvvv), as well as your repositories folder, if you're using that feature. You can customize those paths if needed by editing the config file.
Then, simply pick the specific gamma version you wanna start from the dropdown menu, and tick the options you wanna use :
As the build exceeds max file size for upload, I could not upload it directly. So please read along..

11/01/2020 : 1.0
Please don't hesitate to report bugs, fork, or shout for suggestions if you vvvvish.
congrats for uploading the first app created in vvvv gamma! but why not distribute the binaries/exe? building/exporting from source is not everyone's piece of cake:
thanks for the feedback!
unfortunately, the output dir weighs ~150Mb, which I cannot upload here. I still provided a link to download a build in the description, should be more visible I guess :)
oh indeed, thanks for uploading it. you can also do that as a GitHub release.
great, works nicely!
just a usability remark: whether or not a checkbox is active or not is quite ambiguous when using only colors. to me, using this for the first time, having the checkbox "colored" would mean it is "selected" and white to be "not selected" (i guess this assumption comes from the colored application start button below).
in this app it is the other way round and resulted in an exception being thrown because the c:\repos dir did not exist. (this probably should also be handled more gracefully as less development affine users might be scared by the exception :)
a more clear "selected" visualization would be great! (probably this belongs to the elementa issues, not here...)
thanks for the feedback! i just pushed a new release that solves the path issue by displaying a popup if the folder does not exist, and makes the toggles a bit less ambiguous by setting unchecked color to a soft grey.. this is not ideal of course, I guess it would be better to have some sort of icon, but Elementa does not allow this for now :)
