The createapp script

Location:

On a default pi-apps installation, you will find this script at /home/pi/pi-apps/createapp.

Purpose:

A GUI to help you create/edit an app.

Usage:

To create a new app:

~/pi-apps/createapp

To edit an existing app:

~/pi-apps/createapp Arduino

How it works:

This script is one long while loop with a case statement for each step. (similar to the gui script)
Each dialog allows you to go forward or backward and the current step is stored in the $step variable.
That's about it. View the script to see how each step works.
