thanks a million for this portable version, its a fantastic step!
unfortunately, the community plug-ins are not working for me. (“Failed to load community plugins”). not sure if that is the right place to ask. is there anything i can do?
Same issue as other people. Want to use at work. Not supposed to install software on Windows machine. If I could run off a USB stick that would enable me to keep a personal knowledge database to assist with work in this job and future jobs.
I’m aware of that (See my previous post on how I achieve portability).
The problem is that the PortableApps installer doesn’t support the current packaging.
So if there was a published ZIP in the GitHub releases which contains the content of app-64.7z which inside the exe it allow making the PortableApps installer generic and always up to date.
Just as a follow up in support of this, I’m adding this link to developer resources for converting an existing Windows app to a portable one from the PortableApps.com website, as well as the following description for those unfamiliar with portable apps and why they’re so useful.
When a Windows app is packaged as a portable app, it’s an .exe file that can be double-clicked and run from wherever it’s sitting without needing to be installed.
Portable apps don’t touch the registry, so they can be run from anywhere, including (the most common use) a USB thumb drive. They can (but don’t have to be) submitted to the PortableApps.com repo, which also has an launcher for them that will keep them updated and enables browsing and “installation.” I don’t use Windows much anymore, but if I did, I would really want to see a portable version of Obsidian.
