GUI wrapper for the commandline tools?

would it be possible to package the blackberry-deploy and the other tools into a GUI so that you don't have to type in the IP address all the time and otherwise will be easier to use?

For an easier method, you could theoretically build a regular desktop AIR application to do this using the nativeProcess APIs.


First, create batch files on the fly (if you're on Windows) using your variables, which you could save to a file to load again later. Then use openWithDefaultApplication with your newly create batch file, which will launch in cmd.exe since it should be the default application for .bat files. 


If you're on Mac, you may be able to do the same using shell script/AppleScript in place of a batch file, maybe even something with Automator.


Simplest solution, though, is copy and paste.
