OSCAR suggestion - Portable App

OSCAR suggestion - Portable App
Hello,

Would it be possible to make a Portable App version of Oscar. My daily driver at work is locked down so I can't install apps, but lunchtime at work is the best time to review my sleep data, so a portable Windows app would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Damian.

We have talked about this and we are years away from this. A lot of underlying work needs to occur before we can start on this.

Got a smartphone or tablet?

Install Splashtop (or another one of the free remote access apps) on your smartphone/tablet and your home computer where Oscar resides. You can then "see and use" your computer on that device.

Thanks gents. 

I thought that may be the case. I'll look into the remote control approach.

Cheers,

Another (somewhat more complicated) approach would be to setup a VPN server, then use a VNC client to access your home network. Pretty secure.

RE: OSCAR suggestion - Portable App
Their is a project called Portable Apps that makes slightly modified versions of programs so that they run entirely from a USB stick on a Windows computer without installing anything or modifying the Windows registry.
This is way more feasible than anything on a phone or tablet, but we would need somebody who knows the Portable system to do the work.

RE: OSCAR suggestion - Portable App
How locked down is your work machine?  Does your work machine allow you to touch the registry, even if only temporarily?  If it does, I would think you could install OSCAR to a USB stick, then set the OSCAR data directory on the USB stick, and I think OSCAR will run.  It will update the registry though.

If you cannot touch the registry, some changes would be required in OSCAR to make it truly portable.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.
