using nightly 16138

[Setup/UppHub] option is disabled in menu - why?

Available only on package-selector:

lists stuff from 'AutoScroller' ... 'sundials'

'Install' fails - it fails to install a package to the default location
(I should be able to change this download location - at least it should ask,
or via the 'More..'-menu ... )
I tried to 'install' TerminalCtrl but git-clone doesn't seem to work, fails
with "Failed to start executable"

Hello Slash,

It seems that you do not git in your environment. Could you enter terminal and call:
git


The UppHub option in the Setup -> UppHub.. is disable via HasGit() method:
#ifdef PLATFORM_WIN32

String GetInternalGitPath()
{
	return GetExeDirFile("bin/mingit/cmd/git.exe");
}

bool HasGit()
{
	String dummy;
	static bool b = FileExists(GetInternalGitPath()) || Sys("git", dummy) >= 0;
	return b;
}

#else

bool HasGit()
{
	String dummy;
	static bool b = Sys("git", dummy) >= 0;
	return b;
}

#endif


UppHub requires git in order to work. We will need to communicate it batter.
----------------
I created following PR to adress some issues from this thread.

I installed git & now it works but another issue then crops up:

the install replaces my .config which contain a lot of own nests
the paths to which gets clobbered - WHY? why does the upphub
install need to mess in such a manner with the .config?

Remember that theide's default install is not always what is
on a local machine, please do not make assumptions and then hard-code them,
CHECK if the install is what is expected AND THEN ASK! if it is not

(On this note: upp-install should have a default beginner install script
AND a custom install (== if !default) script where it asks where & how to install)

Hello,

What do you mean by install? Did instillation script (install.sh) mess with your configuration files or it was messed by installing UppHub package?

'Install' is the button label & I am using that to refer to the whole process that happens when it is clicked.
(this refer to upphub 'install'-button for selected upphub-package)

What happened was: before I clicked it, my setup, environment, etc, was just fine, and after I clicked it
Upp/theide behaved as if it was a new install on first run, my customizations were all gone.

(sorry for my 'shouting' in the prev post, but I think it understandable that I was not very happy when
I saw what happened Smile )

I think some kind of standard customizable install plan for Upp/theide should exist that prevents this
kind of random overwrites, the current installing scheme is not well.
