    hacBrewPack is a tool for creating Nintendo Switch NCAs (Nintendo Content Archive) from homebrews and pack them into NSPs (Nintendo Submission Package)

    Finally, all of those lovely people fighting over legality shit can keep a lower voice now.
    Looking forward to installing the Homebrew Launcher as a standalone app in the Switch's menu :)
    Same for more intricate homebrews :P

    Out of that, is there like an option to make the menu appear like a grid instead of a line?
    Or perhaps folders?
    That way installing homebrew apps would be so much better and would not clutter the menu as much.

    If it's like some other custom NSPs, they don't install under SX but if you install them under Rei or whatnot, they work in SX.

    Also, are we able to share NSPs made with this tool freely? They're not using copyrighted SDK stuff right?

    I'd assume you would be able to, as they're completely legal unless you're putting illegal content in them.

    Alright. There exist some other NSP generators that even if you make all the contents yourself, they're still not able to be distributed because they were make with SDK tools. I guess these are different.
