On-line repository browser
« on: April 15, 2015, 08:01:20 AM »
Hi bmarkus
The repository browser looks nice. I found one odd anomaly. Set version to 4.x and architecture to x86. Go to last page and the
last two entries are  rygel.tcz  and  rygel-dev.tcz. Yet  rygel-preferences.tcz  and  rygel-preferences-gtk2.tcz  are on page 70
right where they belong.
It might also be a good idea to add a link to the browser on the downloads page.

Hi bmarkus,

thank you for reintroducing a functionality I missed for a long time.
When I came to TCL (vers. 3.x.x) there was a link to ibiblio.org where
one could browse tcz's and got an overview what a specific tcz is doing.
Also the necessary dependencies were listed. Some day this functionality
disappeared and only a simple list of tcz's was shown.

So I really appreciate the 'reinvented' repository browser.

regards

Hello,

what "On-line repository browser" are you talking about?

A new possibility to browse the repo on the web like requested over there:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,18053.0.html

?

And if yes: Where's the link to this "On-line repository browser"?

Regards

Looks nice, only one question
Why does the inventory start on TC version 4.x 

Yes I know you can change the the columns priority but currently the default opens with TC-4.x

Thanks guys,

Great, just what I was looking for.

Maybe add a tcz file download link somewhere.

Also, I would like the "architecture" to be multiple select, so I could select arm6 and arm7.

hi bmarkus,

I saw that option, but I am only interested in Raspberry Pi extensions.

Hi bmarkus,

I like the On-line repository browser a lot; something we should have had awhile ago... ;D

I started to use it (4-16-15), and have seen on occasion, a problem.  When clicking on any of the tcz file or deplist links, it shows the info fine, but when I use my browser back button, I get the following.

Code: [Select]
Document Expired

This document is no longer available.

The requested document is not available in Firefox's cache.

    As a security precaution, Firefox does not automatically re-request sensitive documents.
    Click Try Again to re-request the document from the website.

I have not seen any consistency when this occurs, but wanted to ask, if maybe the links should be opened in a new browser tab?  Can you add this feature?  If you go this route, then please add a close button, so after opening the new tab, its easily closed.  In-case you are wondering, I do know how to open the links in a new browser tab manually, but thought, maybe new users to the site, might not think to open the link in a new tab.

I was also curious how long it took you to create the repository browser (web/application)?  Could you also provide us techs, the other details about the setup, like programming language (pearl or cgi...)...

Thanks again and good job.

I see randomly the "Page expired" message also, will investigate cause.

It took cca. 5 days what you see now.

There is a MySQL database containing repo data. It is maintained by a Python script which is using the same support files from repo.tinycorelinux.net as the TC built-in tools to find new, deleted or updated packages based on md5.

WEB is Joomla3 with ChronoEngine's ChonoConnection5 (CC5) and ChronoForms5 (CF5) framework. No CGI, No Perl, it is PHP/JS/JQuery/Awesome

Hi zatman,

the behaviour you are describing must not be caused by the repo-browser alone.
I got these expiration messages produced by firefox from time to time since I'm
using 'startpage' as my standard search engine.

My workaround for this is to switch off the automatic cache management in firefox,
setting the cache to say 350MB and clear the manually from time to time.

Maybe there other possibilities - but for me it worx.

I used the online extension browser today to search for previous builds of a few extensions, I found two of them from as far back as the tc-4.x repo which I had previously searched for and missed using http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/src/ etc. etc.   Both needed updating which I have done.  Admittedly where I once questioned the usefulness searchable database given the current available resources I found this new Online extension browser extremely useful, great idea..

Thanks bmarkus
