How to add packages to oneye

Hello there.
I would like to add some software packages to onEye, but I'm not sure how to do that.
Software I wouls like to add are:
PopCornjs video editor: http://popcornjs.org/download
Cloud9 editor for HTML, CSS and JavaScript: https://github.com/c9/core
ShapeSmith: https://github.com/bjnortier/shapesmith
SoundBox: http://sb.bitsnbites.eu/
a notetaking software
a diagramming software
a raster graphics editor (maybe use pixlr)
a vector editor editor (maybe use svg-edit)
an image viewer
a formula editor
a local database management system
a project management tool
a desktop publishing system
html editor/ide (maybe use cloud9)

I would make these packages available to the mainstream onEye download.

Thanks in advance for any support.

Re: How to add packages to oneye

It's a pretty good list and sounds great, but what you are asking for ranges in difficulty from not that much, to pretty much impossible. The only one in your list that is currently on my personal radar is pixlr. There's an old app that integrated pixlr with the vfs. There are three different versions of pixlr now, and the vfs interface doesn't work anymore. The three apps work fine inside frames, but I haven't had time to work on repairing the interface between pixlr and oneye's vfs. If indeed that is still possible.  The only (other) problem with pixlr (and more than a few others on your list) is that they rely on flash, or maybe even java, and google has decided to kill flash and java and some other really cool web stuff. Popcornjs may not work.  If it uses mozilla npapi, google is killing that too.

I see, so it's nearly impossible to implement my list?
Thanks for your help

I think some of it will be extremely difficult to implement, but not all. I'm not trying to scare you off completely, just sort of ready you for reality of the situation.  For example, we barely have office doc support, and you want desktop publishing.  Me too.  Closest I got so far is an app that will convert eyeDoc format to PDF.  And my books have way too complicated formatting for an eyedoc.  Some things which would have been easy to implement, just 4 or 5 years ago, now won't work because things have changed so much.  This year especially google has started flexing its new muscles and knocking off plugins one after another.  It's like building a castle on the beach sometimes.  Hang in there.  Perhaps Lars will give you a better answer, unfortunately, we haven't heard much from him for almost a month.

This might cheer you up a little.  It helped me.  smile

It's an unretouched screen shot, and seriously, I did not photoshop this.  It shows my OS1/onEye installation running fbMessenger and Opera simultaneously, both in frames, both were launched from app icons in the app folder.  Ah, virtualization, when it all works the way it's supposed to, it is so awesome, but the other 80% of the time, it's agonizingly slow and glitchy!  For enough money per month, however, I'm pretty much convinced now that a company could virtualize any app you wanted to run in eyeFrames.  I've seen prices ranging $10 - $25 per month and higher. Since even the OS is virtualized, you can have your choice from the best of both worlds.  GiMP running alongside MS Word would be fairly easy, but they probably wouldn't even know the other existed.
