Does any julia-based GUI app (.exe/executable/installer) exists for Windows or Linux?

For me, I’d rather develop a web app instead. To make GUI app pretty is so damn hard!

I tried to make a Gtk app a while ago (on v0.7) and it’s pretty snappy, starts in maybe 2s. It’s huge though (700MB), but considering you get a lot of stuff with it (Gtk + Julia) it’s not that bad if you want to make a complex software.

I have removed it from the repository, and considered this:

I tried that but the action resulted in a windows build which crashes after run. I didn’t investigate.

I ended up with a new repository GitHub - oheil/PlayGroundApp which just holds the ZIP archive for the stand alone app and with that:

is fake news. :wink:

What kind of account are you using? I’ve never hit any limits on github, I was under the impression that public repos are free.

It’s called “GitHub Free” but this doesn’t mean “unlimited”, I guess.
Ok, did some search, it is about Large Files:

About storage and bandwidth usage

Every account using Git Large File Storage receives 1 GB of free storage and 1 GB a month of free bandwidth. If the bandwidth and storage quotas are not enough, you can choose to purchase an additional quota for Git LFS.

Maybe not that painful.

Anyone remember drawing a first plot with Gadfly.jl on Julia 0.3 takes 100s+? :sweat_smile:
