Portable version of Processing

I would like to find a way to make Processing portable. I understand that you can run it from a USB, but this do not make it portable. Currently, it will write preferences to AppData (on Windows) and it will create a Processing folder in Documents (again, on Windows).
I would love to know how to make or, preferably, just download a portable version.


For portability, I would go with a small linux distribution on a USB stick with persistent storage (so when you unplug it, it remembers what you did). You can check out some here :

With this, you could download Processing and have a small coding environment on an usb :wink:

I did this a few years back:

I had to modify the source code and compile a new portable version.
