    Have you wanted to make installable homebrew?
    Now you can!

    Simply add a keys.txt file to the directory, choose your settings, add your files and build.

    Features:
    Builds most NCA types (excluding BKTR update partitions)
    Simple and easy to use UI (Note: code is guaranteed to be at least 90% messier than the user interface)

    To-do:

    Rights ID crypto + common and personalised ticket generation.
    CNMT, NACP, icon and NPDM generation.

    Known issues:
    Encryption process is S L O W
    Program goes into a non-responsive state during some synchronised operations.

    Source code:

    https://github.com/simonmkwii/NCABuilder

    Release or WIP? :unsure:

    Github readme says: first unofficial NCA builder for Switch titles. Heavily WIP and is currently unusable.

    Just place it in the base directory (the directory with the exe) and it will find it automatically!
