Free app for Roku dev's

Wed May 24, 2017 6:59 am

I built an app to help those of us who work with Roku's.  I hope it makes your day a little bit easier :)

There is a version for windows now!  However, I don't use windows on a daily basis so please let me know if you run into any issues.

Great software!   So far so good on Windows 10 with no errors.

Very nice tool, in particular the control using the keyboard!!
Please implement a way to ignore folders, all my projects contains an "out" folder that has files not supposed to go to the deployment zip
Also:
  • The output folder should be by project, 
  • Name the zip file with the folder name

Thanks for the feedback!

> marcelo.cabral

I will add a way for the user to define files and folders to exclude.  Don't worry about your out folder or any hidden files as I'm already excluding those.  Also, my tool builds and deploys in memory so I don't use the out folder or any other folders during this process.  If someone wants to create a zip then they use the create zip feature.  I appreciate the feedback.

Your two requests are on my features to add list already but I will bump them up on the to do list  :) :)   Thanks for the feedback..

Thanks!

In my tests the zip files included the out folder.

I looked into the bug last night and it looks like I missed this when I updated for windows.  Thanks marcelo.cabra!  I just pushed out version 1.3.0 which should now exclude the out directory.  This version also includes the ability to take screenshots.  Thanks joetesta for the suggestion.

ran into a small bug on windows with the keyboard remote, I was hitting enter expecting 'OK' press but it kept going to home position as if it was receiving 'Home' press.  Tried a few times then gave up and switched to actual remote and it worked as expected.

I had an issue related to focus, when using the keyboard as remote and the focus is on a button, pressing Enter (OK) the button is also pressed, another thing: the up/down keys affects the scrollbar of the window when you are navigating on Roku, that is distracting, have the window content scrolling up and down.

aha that is probably the cause of my issue, because when I went back to it within the same "session" (no roku reboot between or anything) it was back working as expected.  Thanks Marcelo.
Regarding the build / ignore topic, just built a project and seeing it includes my .git folder and .gitignore file
Thanks for your efforts Brian!!
