This started out as a personal project, but I figured I'd release it publicly as I know a lot of people could find this handy.
It's a very basic and very fast java program that creates ipkg feeds, for use by programs like WOSQI and Preware.
Just put the jar file in a directory with the ipk files. Then run the jar and a it'll generate proper "Packages" and "Packages.gz" files.
No interface or configuration needed. Just run it and within seconds the feed files will be generated. It's just that simple
One great usage is putting ipk files in a Dropbox public folder. Just run the jar from inside that folder and you'll have your own personal feed for use in WOSQI and Preware.
Oh, and on a technical side, for those curious, it looks through the ipk's control file for the package info, and if it's detected that the ipk was made via palm-package, then it'll parse the appinfo.json to fill in any missing information.
