Applications development

Since September 2017, I began learning to code and develop applications for Microsoft Windows. All of them are available on my GitHub page and are portable. The following is a list of applications I developed until now (November 2020):

KeyPress OSD

KeyPress OSD promotional imageProject started in September 2017.

KPO is the first application I developed. I learned the basics of coding with this one. I developed it, because I needed something to help me see easier what I type in small text fields and help me use the computer easier.

KeyPress OSD v4 has numerous features and customization options. Please visit the official site to learn more, to try it and/or buy it.

Church Bells Tower

Church Bells Tower screen shotProject started in August 2018.

This is an application I dedicate to bell lovers and Christians. It can strike the bells as a church tower: every quarter or on the hour. It can also toll bells distinctively every six hours, eg., at noon or midnight.

Church Bells Tower can also show Bible quotes daily, in French, Spanish or English, at easy to specify intervals, and remind users of secular or Christian feasts/celebrations. The days of feast can be marked additionally by semantron drumming.

Quick Picto Viewer

Quick Picto Viewer v4 screen shotProject started in May 2019.

QPV is an image viewer and editor based on the GDI+ and FreeImage libraries. It can open about 85 image file formats. It is also able to create image slideshows and cache very large dynamic lists of files. Unlike other applications of this kind, it is much faster. It loads on my system a list of 500000 files in under 10 seconds, while XnView Classic or Irfan View need more than 15 minutes.

Quick Picto Viewer is also able to play sound files associated with images, automatically or on demand, and even generate slideshows that are in synch with the audio files duration. Supported audio formats: WAV, MP3 and WMA.

QPV can also be used for casual image editing. It comes with support for freely rotated elliptical or rectangular selections and common image editing tools: transform selected area, paste in place, apply color adjustments, draw arcs, freeform shapes or lines, insert text, flip image, blending modes, alpha masking, soft edges blur area and so on.

As of November 2020, Quick Picto Viewer is still in active development, with features and improvements planned.
