Spotlight Importer for Xojo, Zip, localizing your Xojo program

I thought I’d present a few Xojo based projects here that I worked on in the past years. Some are finished, but most are not. I keep wanting to release some of them as products (and earn money with them), but just don’t find the time to make the effort.

I use @tempelorg Zip code in App Wrapper as it handles Japanese encoding flawlessly, which is more than I can say for the solution I was using before.

Not only that, IIRC I bought a license for the code, so it’s not another black box dependency in the future.

I also use Arbed when I archive a version of my application, so it brings all external objects at that time.
