Portable Celtx is a version of Celtx that utilizes Portable Firefox as codebase. Portable Celtx adds considerable convenience for people who use Celtx on various computers by not requiring installation. It can simply run from a USB stick or other portable storage device.
The project has been hosted by Sourceforge since January 2007. You can see the download statistics from that page. Portable Firefox is available under the Mozilla Public License 1.1 (MPL 1.1), and Portable Celtx is available under the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPL v2) and the Celtx Public License (CePL).
As of November 15, 2007, the newest portable version for Windows is 0.996. As of January 11, 2008 the newest Mac OS X version is 0.997 r1.0. These versions are created by Jacob Koehler and are based on Portable Firefox and the original Celtx program files. You can download the Mac port from the official project homepage.
Celtx also runs from a USB flash drive, or any other form of portible media, if you run the standard install, and target it to your device.
REMEMBER! your portable device MUST be plugged in to do this.
Additionally, you can run the standard install and copy-paste the Celtx folder in your Program Files folder on your computer to your portable flash drive. Both of these methods are "just works" methods and are not truly "portable", meaning that while they will run from your portable device, they leave files on the computer you are using, usually in the AppData or Application Data folder.
Remember: you can also follow the additional steps listed in the Installation article, which deal with missing DLLs and the extra dictionaries.
