I've been thinking..

The renoise-zip-download in backstage contains the program BUT ALSO samples,instruments and demo songs..

Wouldn't it be cool if the next update will contain some tools too?
Maybe some of the tool creators wouldn't mind to have their tools in the zipfile..

It would. I sent a message to danoise to ask why renoise-team-made tools are not built-in

 

Few third party tools should be there as well.

 

All in all I agree with you

I don't agree.

 

I think it's a smarter solution to have a native tool manager that lists/installs/uninstalls tools from an online repository. Like in the atom editor and other software. Those things are rather gratifying and a very tangible way to add percieved value to the software.

Why do I have the impression that something like this existed at some point? Did it?

That would very simply possible by modifying the tool updater and the server xml script a tiny bit: the updater with an extra tab "available" and the xml-php-script with an additional switch "getall".

 

And the list view in the updater would be a perfect candidate for danoise's vlib table view.
