WinStikker – Quickly Create New Stikkits From Your Windows Desktop

Stikkit

(Update: WinStikker is now Open Source!)

Any more of this stuff and people are going to start to wonder if I work for Values of n (makers of Stikkit – and no, I don’t work for them – yet ;) . After writing the python script described (badly) in the previous post, I was somewhat inspired to hack out another tool to help make Stikkit even easier to use/adopt. With that, I give you WinStikker!

First of all, I have to say this – WinStikker is a hell of a lot easier to use than the Gmail Contacts script :) All you need is your stikkit API key (which WinStikker should prompt you for, the first time you run it). That’s it, then you’re ready to go. Here’s how it works:

Fire up WinStikker, type in some text for a new Stikkit (just like you would through the website), and click “Stikkit!”. It’s that easy, folks. If you’re the kind of person who creates new Stikkits all day long and processes them later, this is a very lightweight solution that should work well for you. It even stores your API key between sessions!

And for you folks who like pictures, here’s a screenshot:

WinStikker

To run this application, you’re going to need version 2 of the .NET Framework – and if you have a reasonably updated copy of windows, you should already have it. If not, you can download the installer here.

So, yeah, there you go. I tested it pretty thoroughly, but if anybody finds any problems (or has any suggestions for other features), let me know.

Download WinStikker!
