What apps do you need on Haiku?
Hey Guys and Girls,
I'm just trying to get an idea on what apps people need on Haiku. Feel free to include ideas such as applications from other platforms (e.g. Firefox), or just general application types (e.g. Spreadsheet Program). Also, if there's an application on Haiku that just needs updated because it no longer runs or is missing feature X, then that would be a great addition as well.
If possible, let's keep the discussion to a minimal in this thread and treat it more like a list. External links and little notes at the end of your posts are welcome. Please try to stick to one post per user. If you need to modify your list then simply edit that post.
Keep in mind: The point behind this is to allow potential-developers to have a quick list they can run through, evaluate what people want, and can use this knowledge to build applications that will be more beneficial for the community. I don't have any idea on what most people use Haiku for so choosing an application that would be well worth the time is a guessing-game at best.
- HTML5 Browser
- Official Package Manager
- Emacs has been ported by augiedoggie but he mentioned it was an older release
- Work has already been started on porting webkit by aldeck
- There's some various methods of currently distributing packages. From this developer's mailing list thread, it appears there's some work to be done in this area, still. I'd like to see a decision made on how Haiku, from a central aspect, plans on handling package management and get this system (even if it's crude) implemented.
