QuickDesigner

From LinuxMCE
Jump to: navigation, search

QuickDesigner is an alternative to HADesigner, a program for creating UI for LinuxMCE. QuickDesigner is written in Java, so it is possible to run it from any machine that is Java enabled.

Warning

QuickDesigner is still work in progress and even though it works quite nicely, it is more then recommended that you backup pluto_main database before you start working with it.
