Atlantis Installer is an installation wizard built to simplify installing PHP-GTK2 applications on multiple platforms as an alternate solution to using PEAR. Atlantis Installer allows you to build your application with the structure you want and drop it nicely as one package.
However not limited to installing PHP-GTK2 applications, this installer does require that PHP and GTK2 libraries be installed. To use this for non PHP-GTK2 apps, the end user would have first install the Gnope package (Windows) or install PHP, GTK2, and the PHP module manually (Linux). This is something someone looking to run PHP-GTK2 apps has probably already done, and hopefully in the future Linux distributions will come prepared for PHP like most do with Perl and/or Python.
The standard setup of the installer works like this. Upon launch it greets the user, prompts them to click next. Then it asks for the location the user would like to install, and then click next. It then installs the package and outputs the status live in the output box. Though configuration you can set default paths and change the look of the installer.
With scripting you can perform additional tasks during the actual install step (like if you need to chmod or rename a file). The installer automaticly checks if it can install to the directory the user specified, and if it can then it creates the necessary directory structure.
PHP (Version 5 branch)
What's New in This Release:
The UI was rebuilt to fix clipping with large Gtk2 fonts.
