[jitsi-users] Is jitsi "portable"?


#1

Bonjour,
my first intervention on this list.

I will have several questions in the future, but here the first one:
Is it possible to use jitsi in a portable way, eg. like PortableApps on Windows?
Perhaps with a .ini file somewhere, or by choosing keeping all data near programm folder while installation?
If not, it would be a real plus (or tripple AAA) to jitsi beeing portable, to ease backups and copie to USB or external HD.

Where does jitsi keep what kind of information on the HD or the registry while installation?

Regards,
Martin

This depends on the operating system. You can check out the following
FAQ entry for more details:

http://jitsi.org/faq/logs

It talks about the logs folder, but all other user data is there too.
We don't store anything in the registry so, if you need to transfer a
Jitsi profile, you only need to copy that directory to the same
location on the new system.

Hope this helps,
Emil

Hi Emil,

Thank you for the answer, I found the folder, so for backups I can configure my synchro program. I'm on Win7 and WinXP.

I will look how I can put all this near the program folder and than execute it from an USB stick, with the help of PortableApps.com guides.

Is Jitsi pure Java? Unfortunately I don't speak Java...
BTW, is there any "wisch list" where I could post some small ideas about a "better jitsi"? :wink:
I'm not used to all features yet, but I observed some little behaviors that I think could be better... (ne voulant froisser personne), and not speaking Java I could not contribute directly.
