    You probably already know MakeROMFS, the command line tool that can build ROMFS files for use with HANS within seconds.
    However, I do admit that command line is really handy when it comes to scripting, but it's far from accessible to all users.

    Therefore, I decided to wrap a GUI around it, but I soon realised it became useless for scripting.
    Then I thought, why not both?
    And I did both!

    MakeROMFS-GUI can be used as both, a GUI tool, and CLI tool, so you can still write scripts for it, and at the same time, it can be used without the need to remember on how to use it; the best of 2 worlds!

    A vast majority of the code was made by 3DSGuy, I only programmed the GUI portion of the app.

    Tested and confirmed working on Manjaro, Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Windows 10 (under Linux Subsystem).
