    Most of this code is not GPL3, yet it is released under GPL3 which seems... disingenuous? And the appropriate licenses are not distributed -- you can't bury them in source file headers, should be in the same directory as your GPL3 license and appropriately marked and distributed with the release. Perhaps it would be better to host tinfoil in a different repository, licensed under MIT, and then use it as a library, which you are basically doing anyway. This mix just feels bad.

    Will you accept a PR for USB / Network NUT support? B-)

    The licenses are still being fulfilled, regardless of your opinion of how they should be presented to the user. Each release has a copy of the source code bundled in a ZIP which includes the proper licensing and copyright notices. If you would like to implement the licensing in a way you're more comfortable with, feel free to submit a PR.


    Depends on the licensing status of said software, and how compatible it is with the "just werks" philosophy I'm trying to go for. As I've already stated, USB interfacing between different OS environments can be... Not a pleasant experience.

    The NUT code in goldbricks is GPL 3.0, your favorite:

    https://github.com/blawar/goldbrick...d6bd6a5#diff-e93603582e02d4ac9bb7f4d86d8359a0

    It looks like a big commit, but its really not. Most of the noise is just adding the rapidjson library.

    And about the license thing, you are def not in compliance, you need to add the license to the root directory and include it in all binary distributions:

    But OP, you promised us this was bullshit-free.

    No dev in this scene can resist the temptation of pettiness it seems.

    My concern is with the software used to interface with this implementation.

    Sounds easy enough. I'll throw a tinfoil.LICENSE at the root directory. As for binary distributions, they're packaged alongside them on every release on the Github.

    Just comment that little line and you're all set.

    The spec is open source, write your own NUT alternative. Using the same wire protocol will allow users of all of our software to choose the backend they want. I am just curious though, what issues do you have with nut? Its GPL and is easy to setup.

    off topic: please rename this to nydus2 :rofl2:

    • Crashes for sxos users
    This is the equivalent of a deviant art OC where people add small details to a pre-made drawing.
    Stick to og tinfoil, goldleaf, and blawars tinfoil.

    Anti sx just for the sake of it doesn’t seem very “no bullshit” to me.

    I don't have any issues with it as I've never looked into what it is or how it is used. My goal before an implementation would be a free-software, cross-compatible way of interfacing with it... Even if that just means a python script and duct tape.

    I have no means of contacting you directly after leaving ReiNX. I might consider coming back if that means I'm allowed to participate in their """developer chat""". Also, nydus?

    Come back. Or just add vertigo#7126 , There is a lot of potential with this app. Nydus was an app that glued OG Tinfoil together with NX-Shell's code and caused Adubbz to quit the scene. I dont see any of those issues with this project as OG Tinfoil is abandoned and it uses a purposefully built windowing library.

    Nut is 100% python and cross platform, and it has a python compiled exe for windows users who do not wish to setup a python environment.

    Tbh this was my fav title installer ever, especially because it supported split files (when that still was needed).
    It was abandoned and stopped working at later firmwares and meanwhile Goldleaf and Tinfoil DZ filled the gap but I always loved the GUI of it.

    However, this (Awoo Installer) looks good and is a more polite way of supporting NSZ compared to forking Goldleaf to do it.

    There's too many good installers now and each has some benefits.

    Awoo Installer:
    • UI
    • Sigpatches updater
    • NSZ support
    • Open Source
    Goldleaf:
    • UI
    • Internet browser
    • Title/Ticket Management
    • best PC to Switch USB install with Quark (in my opinion)
    • Open Source
    Tinfoil:
    • Google Drive support (really love that, especially with Tinson)
    • NSZ support
    • Themes support

    I don't know if it's bad or cool to have that variety but at least there's something for each use case.
