WeiDU Install Tool (Light User Interface)

WeiDU Install Tool (Light User Interface)

WeiDU Install Tool (WIT) is a graphical front end for the WeiDU command line tool to install modifications for Infinity Engine games, such as Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale or Planescape Torment.

The tool offers all the functionality of the WeiDU command line interpreter as well as many usability improvements and convenience features to help with the mod installation task. It is meant as a replacement or alternative to the setup executables that are included in most mod archives, but can also be used for more general WeiDU operations. It is not intended to be a full-fledged mod manager like Project Infinity.

The front end is written in Java and uses the JavaFX framework to provide a modern UI look and feel. The source code is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
