Hi,

I updated to the last built (3409). I obtain a "synchronize" dialog box, with all files to add/update/delete. Good ! But the problem is that it wants to delete all my apps and tests, even in the MyApps folder Sad

Could you add some check box to choose "(un)select all files to be deleted" ? It could do that globally, or better folder by folder. Globally would be already very usefull : I cannot uncheck manually hundreds of files that I want to keep !

Hi Jibe,

That is weird, it shouldn't touch the stuff in MyApps... I will have a look at it ASAP.

The "select all files" actions are good idea, I'll try to implement it soon.

Best regards,
Honza

Hi Honza,

As we talked in PM, this is because I have the MyApp directory inside the upp tree. I'll remove it from there to solve this problem.

If you plan to add an (un)select action, maybe you could do this in a tree, to (un)select complete branches ? Just an idea...

Hi,

The problem is that it wants also to delete a lot of files in "out", "tmp" and "bazaar" directories...

Maybe Ok with "tmp", but I'm afraid about bazaar : why so many files are deleted ? I'm surprised that we don't need anymore them at all... ie, it wants to delete files in bazaar/CtrlPropTest and bazaar/TabBar directories...

And as it deletes all in out directory, I'll have to recompile all my apps, with all libraries ?

I just choose to install local copy of upp... Did I do something wrong ? Why must I move MyApps when the installator put it there ? Is there other folders that I should move ?

(sorry for these newbie questions... I'm still just discovering U++)

To recompile all is anyway a very good idea, after core sources are updated. So deleting "out" is a good thing.

The thing is that for the updater to detect changes, the local source tree must be kept clean. If you add another directories in there, and they are missing in the system-wide sources (in /usr/share/upp), the updater thinks they were removed from U++ and suggest to delete them (quite correctly). I have been lately working on some improvements in the detection which might solve this, at least partialy, but it is not in state to be commited safely just yet.

I think I will also add some sort of "ignore pattern", so you could mark files/directories to be ignored by the update mechanism. That is probably the best universal solution I can think of.

Yes... and No ! This obliges to recompile all libraries, when maybe there is changes only in one or two test programs in the bazaar...

Yes. And it's true that I installed all from scratch some monthes ago, and since this time I just copied the /usr/share/upp to my upp local directory and never deleted anything... This could be the reason why there is so many things to delete...

Just committed a code bringing following changes to the source updater part of theide:
  • better algorithm for analyzing source changes
  • ability to ignore certain files/directories (using globbing patterns)
  • ability to set actions for entire directories, instead only on file level

I am pretty sure I didn't test all the possible situations and scenarios that can happen, there is just too many combinations... The most common situations I tested seem to work well, so hopefully this change won't break anything Smile

To access the features, just update as before. You will find a new context menu in "Synchronize local sources" window, it should be pretty obvious what each entry does Smile If not, experiment Wink

A picture for reference:
index.php?t=getfile&id=3248&private=0

The ignore patterns are implemented using PatternMatch function, so if you want more details on the allowed globbing patterns, read the documentation Wink

Best regards,
Honza

Hi,

I tried this morning : good Smile

Just one little thing : after changing something with the context menu, we go at the top of the list... Better if we can stay in place, but maybe it's too difficult to do for something not very important...

I agree, it was annoying Rolling Eyes It should be fixed in 3462, but I'm not really happy with the solution, so if anyone knows better suggestions are welcome Wink
