in reply to Cross-platform GUI for UNIX based scripts

What about turning it into a web app using one of the many frameworks? Then you don't have to care what platform the users are on, as long as they've got a browser.

I'd use Mojolicious, Mojolicious::Lite is a really nice, simple and quick way to get started, but there are lots of other frameworks you could try.

    So the app would be on a user specified server to which the webpage would connect to? Seems like something very easy to do if I understand correctly.

      Yes, run the web app on the server where you want to service to run, then the users can point their browsers to its URL.

        I don't have that much experience, but this is how we do it at work for our internal tools. I don't think any solution is painless, but this seems to be the easiest way to go as far as compatibility is concerned and also seems the easiest way in terms of programming (man, programming GUIs is a ton of boring work).
