Yesterday, July 25th was holiday here, so I spent the afternoon with Haiku, getting PyQt5 from Haikuports working in order to check if Manuskript could be used on Haiku.
As it is a python app, and can be run from sourcecode, I just downloaded the source code and try to run it without success, until @extrowerk came to the rescue pointing out a crucial step.
Therefore, Manuskript can be used in Haiku now, prior installation of PyQt5, and running
python3.6 manuskript from the bin folder inside the downloaded package.
While on the Manuskript website it states that just typing
manuskript launches the software, the
python3.6 call is needed in order to actually launch the app.
Then, the process to use Manuskript as of today is as follows:
1- Install PyQt5 from Haikuports. The recipe is available and it does work
2- Download Manuskript’s source code from its website
3- Unpack the .zip or .tar.gz file and put it at your desired location
4- Go to the new Manuskript folder and navigate to the
bin folder inside
5- Open a terminal in that bin folder (right click add-ons>open terminal)
6- At the prompt type
python3.6 manuskript and you are good to go
The outcome is:
Now need to learn how to package it and add the Haikufied icon.
