HUD Keka Interface

Today I installed Xcode on my Snow Leopard and decided to play around with it.
For testing, I used a Mac OS X file archiver called Keka [link]
I managed to change the "Processing Window" and the "Advanced Window" for a HUD interface.
As always, just open and move the ZIP contents to "Keka / Contents / Resources / en.lproj "

Tested on version 1.4.1

Known bugs:

In the preferences of the program if you select "Close Keka when no window visible" and try to open a password protected file, a message will appear asking if you really want to close the program and you can not open the file. So whenever you open a password protected file, remember to uncheck the option mentioned above.

I do not know anything about Xcode, InterfaceBuilder and etc ... but I think Keka does not recognize the HUD interface as "windows" but as "panels", so the program always tries to close automatically.

If anyone knows how to fix it, please share.

Enjoy!

I got the source application, open it in Xcode and changed the windows to "hud panels" ... that was a long time, but I think that was it.

Here it goes. A quick modification of Keka that runs your HUD windows. The HUD interface file is no added, so you must add it as explained on top.

Does this mean that soon we'll see a new version and with some changes? Can't wait to see it!

Like it, really! Maybe In some build I can test it ;)

To handle the bug, I think is needed some code, so HUD panels are not the same as windows, but no that hard.

Very nice. If I may not be too intrusive, might I ask what wallpaper you're using ? It's very nice :)
