Lightbulb Linux Installer system similar to NSIS

Hey, this is self-promotion, so skip if not interested.

Although Linux has other more standard ways of software distribution, sometimes the people you ship software to are complete Linux-newbies and your software is pretty portable and just needs to be unpacked.

For that audience I have created an installer builder for Linux, that feels very similar to NSIS:

Maybe you folks find that interesting. I'd be very happy to get some feedback on it.

...and no, sadly, it's not scriptable like NSIS is. It simply imitates the look-and-feel.

To be fair, NSIS did not invent the "MUI look" . It is called Wizard 97 and and a lot of installers emulated this look in the late 90s.

True. But in my eyes 90% of Windows installers I see are made with NSIS. Not that I see much of them anymore in general, but still

Thanks for the hint, I've mentioned "Wizard97" in the intro paragraph.
