Gramps software bundle is all-in-one install package of Gramps dependencies on Windows platform

Logic for AIO is that in Windows first search path is working directory (one in which program is started) so if any Gramps dependency is in same directory there is no need for him to look for them in system and possibly load incompatible one thus avoid dependency hell. This is reason why AIO must be started from AIO folder.

In newer Windows version there my be security restriction with shell scripts so AIO does not use one.

It is rebuild-able, it contains install script which can make new setup program from installed one.

If for example somebody like to repackage Gramps with their code change, favorite addons, family trees etc.

Why:
  • easy installation:
    • no searching web for appropriate package
    • one click install
  • no dependency hell:
    • all libraries can work one together
    • on upgrade version of library rebuild all others with that version
How:
  • put all software Gramps needs in one package:
  1. all core non-python library and applications
  2. any optional non-python library and applications
  3. python bindings for core libraries
  4. python bindings for optional libraries
  • use NSIS (Nullsoft Script-able Install System)
