NWNX4 GUI

December 17th, 2006 by papillon

After playing around with wxWidgets and trying out some ideas on a service handling interface, I decided to first do a quick solution that resembles the old NWNX2 GUI and supports only the interactive mode. That way, there is something out sooner, and I have more time to decide what kind of interface I really want for NWNX4.

To this end, I refactored parts of the controller source into a class, which can be used by the command line interface and the new GUI program alike.

NWNX4 development

The plugins and the controller program slowly loose their alpha-quality and are about to enter the beta phase. What is now needed for a first beta release is a graphical interface.

A break from working at the more low-level stuff will be nice. Yesterday, I started working on the GUI stuff, which will allow the creation and controlling of NWNX windows services. The design and functionality will somewhat resemble the MySQL Administration program, which has a clean interface and looks good, IMHO.
