Hello everyone, I'd like to share with you Lan Play GUI, a graphical interface for lan-play.

Lan Play GUI lets you manage your own list of servers: add, delete, edit, and refresh them, as well as being able to see which are online, and how many players there are. On top of this, you're able to see the server version, and of course launch it with lan-play without having to type out a command.

It is currently available for Win32, Win64, Linux, raspberry PI and Mac OSX.

1.- Download the executable of lan-play adequate for your system (64/32 bits)
2.- Download the RAR with lan play GUI adequate for your system (64/32 bits)
3.- Uncompress the RAR wherever you want
4.- Put the executable of lan-play without renaming it in the same folder as lan play GUI
5.- if you have done this well you should have lan-play-GUI.exe and the executable of lan play on the same folder

For the record, this will not work on encrypted Ubuntu home drives. See here for details.

Also, I hate to be that guy... but couldn't you try something more lightweight than Electron?

Especially since you just seem to be subprocessing the lanplay commands, running an entire Chromium instance is just a waste of memory usage imho.

Something like? do you know a lightweight alternative to electron that have the same features? i don't know c++, only js html and css.
Actually you can close the gui once the terminal is launched, the lan-play is not sub processed, what is sub processed is just a command that launches a new terminal with lan-play, at least on windows, i don't know if the new terminal is keep in a subprocess in linux.

http://appjar.info/

appJar is a very simple python GUI lib. A bit hard to make it look nice, but it does the job.

Check out the subprocess module in python too.

I highly suggest learning at least more languages than just web langs and Python is a pretty easy one to jump into if you're famliar with js.

If ppl dont want to use this they can just start it like the normaly do, or make their own GUI.
I think its a great tool :grog:

Have you tried it yourself? if u run this while your home folder is unlocked it should work? If not post it as an issue and its possible to add an alternative path for where the client needs to be located.

If that is the case it should apply to the normal lan-play-linux client that you would run in the terminal as well
