Official VAStGoodies.com discussion thread. Adriaan van Os 2/27/12 1:30 AM
Please use this thread to discuss about VAStGoodies.com.

We used to have a thread on the old forum (http://www.instantiations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2431). I think we should have one here too.

Cheers,
Adriaan.
VAStGoodies.com has been updated. Adriaan van Os 2/27/12 9:30 AM

All the bugs that crept in over the last 3 years have been fixed. Other (minor) improvements have been made as well. Here are the highlights:

  • Moved to a faster server.
  • Enhanced caching mechanism ensures better responsiveness. Internally, there is an extra layer of objects on top of the ENVY concepts now.
  • The projects page is back!
  • There is a tags page.
  • Performance and minor fixes and tweaks at statistics page page.
  • Added horizontal rule (_) to wiki syntax.

As before, annotation tags from the most recent version of a configuration map are used to generate the project pages. In case you are not too happy how your projects appear, you might want to upload a new version with adjusted tags.

One as side note, please avoid uploading maps containing deployable code and development code. It's is better to split it over two (or more) maps and use a single project tag to link them together at the projects pages and in the statistics.

Cheers,

Adriaan.

All,

It's good to also mention that some time ago Bart Veenstra added an
extremely cool feature to vastgoodies:
You can now browse the code in the vastgoodies repository without having to
download the code first.

Just click on the tiny browse' link above the versions and applications
boxes and you're off.

For more details on the implementation:

Kind regards,

Louis

After the latest round of tweaking you can just click at the Applications label just above the applications box.

It seems that VASTGoodies.com site is currently down due to "500 - internal server error".

Hi Lawrence,

Fixed now. We forgot to restart the service after some maintenance.
Thanks for reporting!

Kind regards,
Louis

A bit delayed but VAStGoodies.com is available again. Not much changed from the outside, so here is a list in case you're wondering.
  • New (and faster?) server.
  • Faster(?) internet connection.
  • Ported from VA Smalltalk 8.5.0 to 8.6.2.
  • Upload and download events are no longer stored in the ENVY database but in a mysql database.
  • ENVY database shrunk from 3.655.806 KB to 455.957 KB after cloning.
  • Reworked processing of upload and download statistics.
  • RSS now shows time of upload in stead of time of map creation.
  • Statistics are back.
  • Pie charts corrected at the statistics page. (Slices must be in descending order of their size.)

Please let me know if you notice any bugs. Haven't thoroughly tested all the used components. Some of them might require (more) changes to be used in VA Smalltalk 8.6.2 (and the Seaside version that comes with it).


Keep sharing ;-).

Cheers,

Adriaan.

It is an SQLite database.
