@ bmarkus:

When searching for an extension, the search results have a column named "Deps", where you can click onto a "deplist" link which takes you to yet another page which shows a list of dependencies.

Could you please integrate the dependency list into the extension info page instead of making it a separate page?

I mean by simply listing the dependencies below the changelog of the extension instead of placing the dependency list on a separate page.

Any chance you could do that?

Regards

No, I do not want to put all information to a single page but to offer clean information and to let users select what do they want to see. Usually you do not want to see everything, just looking for a release date, link to upstream WEB, etc. and don't care deps. When looking fot deps, why to bother with copyright? If they need all, they are just few clicks away.

Wrong.

And a lot of major distributions are showing the dependencies alongside the rest of the package info in their online repository browser, see for example:

Ubuntu:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/vivid/firefox

Debian:
https://packages.debian.org/sid/iceweasel

Arch Linux:
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/firefox/

So, it would be nice if you would do it for the Tiny Core Linux online repository browser as well.

Wrong because different? It is not an argument. I explained why is it implemented this way. How others are working it is up to them.

Thanks bmarkus.

I just wanted to point out that if you scroll to the bottom of the page and change the number of entries to display to "All", it still takes two pages to display everything.

Yes, 'all' means in fact a maximum size limit to avid listing of few thousand lines which would case issues and would be unusable.

So this is the successor of http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/tcz/ & http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/tcz/index_nojs.html
8)

I have a question about the url's / routing

Opening the new browser and clicking on for example '8086tiny.tcz'
the link http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?cont=lists&ccname=repolist1&act=view&gcb=1 will open , i guess that this is some DB info sent in the params

I wonder if it might be possible to 'somehow' access the same resource
with some kind of diffrent url routing EG like
this : http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?pkg=6.x/x86/8086tiny.tcz
or
that : http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/8086tiny.tcz

Thanks!

mocore,

The new repository browser is http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/index.php

However the original resources have always been available from http://tinycorelinux.net

for example 8086tiny.tcz from http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/8086tiny.tcz
and 8086tiny.tcz.info from http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/8086tiny.tcz.info
and 8086tiny.tcz.dep http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/8086tiny.tcz.dep
and 8086tiny.tcz.md5.txt http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/8086tiny.tcz.md5.txt

Remember that you wouldn't normally use the above to download and install tcz extensions, you should instead use the builtin tc "APPS" browser

:)

Indeed ! or .. 'tree/usr/bin/tce-ab - Tiny Core Extension: Application Browser'

The new repository browser is http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/index.php
However the original resources have always been available from http://tinycorelinux.net
I have looked a bit into the tiny mirrors dir strcture , and repo file's ect

+ The simple example you post is a good one! 

It just happens that i had forgoten about the new repo browser
 and have recently been trying to 'port'/build  the odd extention
and decided i would like to 'see' better what extention is in what version / arch

Any way i have ended up with some small scripts that collect each $arch/info.lst and (mash&)display them in a html table .

So i was hopeing i could be lazy and just make a link using the extention name to view the packages.tinycorelinux nicely formated .info online.

If its not posible for what ever reason i  can live with that , just thaught i would ask before considering other options  :)

You can:
Code: [Select]
http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/8086tiny.tcz.infowill display the extensions info in your browser just as it would appear in the Apps utility.

thanks for that I just bookmarked it.

For me, this thread is the only one I can find for that URL and I can't see it in the wiki either.

Hi Bela.

Thanks for providing this browser, refer to it frequently. Queries:

- Could go to page '1 2 3 4 ...', 'next page' or similar be placed at the bottom of page?

- How hard would it be to incorporate a 'tag' search, like Apps (eg. game, browser, network), not just by extension name?

Thanks.

Page can be added to the bottom of page, no problem.

Tag search need some extra time, it is on the todo list. No ETA thought.

I wonder how often the repository browser updates?  because it doesn't appear to have updated some extensions in many months?
