Castor 2.0 has been officially released with a Mac GUI installer. The github repository has been updated and the latest version can be grabbed from github. I’ve created a new repository for V2.0 here.
Castor is a script package that ties Archiware PresSTORE to Squarebox CatDV. This project started as a how-to guide on my blog, but I found that it likely needed to be a little bit easier to work with.
After spending some time working with customers using it, I also realized that it was not very verbose in any errors that occurred, so tracking down problems for users was problematic.
Because of this, Castor was born as a second generation toolkit to provide connectivity.
For users that want the latest version of this package, I would recommend grabbing the raw source from github. While I try to keep the installer up to date, it is not necessarily the latest build of the script package.
- Much stronger logging across all scripts
- Double-click installer for package files
- Configuration script for simplified setup
- Discreet config files for easier modification and updates
- A beaver for a logo
I will keep this page up to date with changes that are being made and the latest version of the Castor toolkit can be downloaded here as well. If you are interested in contributing to Castor, please feel free. The source for the package itself is currently available on github.
I have removed the installer .pkg as it was out of date. Soon to come is a formal install shell script that should work on all *nix platforms.
