voodoo2palm (Super Lazy Man's Edition)

voodoo2palm.jpg Never satisfied to leave things at a simple drag and drop operation, I’ve bundled up everything a VoodooPad user needs to read a VoodooPad document on a PalmOS device without any additional downloads:

voodoo2palm provides a built-in distribution of Plucker along with the English versions of the Plucker Viewer for Palm. All you have to do is drag the voodoo2palm icon out onto your Desktop or into your Applications folder and it’s ready for use: Drag a VoodooPad document onto it, get a Plucker file on your Desktop a few seconds later.

There are a few nagging little things left (images aren’t working quite right, VooodooPad and Plucker don’t agree on what a “bullet” might be), but it does the job for me. If I add anything, it’ll be a version that’s usable in the script menu so the Palm version can be generated without straying out of the ‘pad.

The VooodooPad logo, btw, was repurposed with permission of Flying Meat.


holy cow! hats off to you, mr. hall. if only my palm was actually... working.

Yes, this seems really, really nice thing, having been much exited of VoodooPad !

Unfortunately, trying to run a pas on voodoo2palm gets me error "document 1 of application "Voodoopad" doesn't understand the <> message.

Grr... Can't get it work how much I try

Hm. I think it's a problem I created by testing against the current closed beta. Try this one out:
