Resurrection of "Cabos" file sharing program
 
Hi there!

I'm Ed Matavka; I was the original project lead for the WireShare project back when it was started in 2010 (you'll find my initial commit to CVS on SourceForge, and the description and everything is all mine, too).

Recently, I was looking through all my old work and discovered that Cabos, a similar project but written partly in RealBasic, had fallen into desuetude. The source code, to my great surprise, was still available on the original SourceForge.jp server, despite SF.jp having changed its name to OSDN. I know that the original developer of Cabos, known only as heavy_baby, had made a few changes to the LW back-end, and these changes were widely unpopular among Gnutella cognoscenti. There has been no work on Cabos since 2010.

Therefore, I created a new project on the main SourceForge site. I saw no reason to change the name---LW was changed to WireShare because the LW name had been poisoned by the RIAA lawsuit---so Cabos is now available in source form at https://sourceforge.net/projects/cabos/. The source code has been made available in a Mercurial repository, and I will also upload a .zip file for those people with no knowledge of Hg (I will teach people how to upload and download to Hg upon request)

So I was wondering whether there were any programmers here with knowledge of RealBasic/Xojo who could undertake the Cabos project. I know Gnutella is much smaller than it used to be, but I'm sure someone could take this work in hand.

I can be reached at *email address removed*

In recent months had sent messages to heavy_baby asking about whether he'd work together with the WireShare team also on the Cabos and Acqlite projects which he has control over. The idea being to update to similar changes and improvements to WireShare. No response unfortunately.
I am neither a RealBasic/Xojo knowledgeable person.
Compiling the code is different to actually building the app which I'm unable to do for either Cabos or Acqlite (which uses a language that only operates on the MacOSX system.)

So I reiterate and emphasise nmatavka's request.

I know you don't know Xojo, but do have a look-see at the new Cabos website. https://sourceforge.net/projects/cabos/ I can add you as a developer if you like.

The original iteration of Cabos is dead; heavy_baby has updated his site to reflect this fact Cabos (γ‚«γƒœγ‚Ή) γƒ—γƒ*γ‚Έγ‚§γ‚―γƒˆζ—₯本θͺžγƒˆγƒƒγƒ—γƒšγƒΌγ‚Έ - OSDN. The web site now says that "DISTRIBUTION OF CABOS HAS STOPPED" or something similar. So I very much doubt that heavy_baby will come to work on WireShare.

It might be better to just create a new GUI with Java/Swing.
The upside is that it could then run anywhere that java can.
Maybe when I get more familiar with java libraries and swing I could take a hack at it.
It'll be awhile though.

I run NetBSD. So its unlikely I could run Cabos with its current GUI.
