Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

Look guys, I certainly won't make any rushed decision. I will let this simmer for awhile, and collectively review what comes out of it. (*) Many of these "filters" are either already in-place (like open-source), easy to duplicate from existing ones, or easy to do anew (like make badges clickable). S...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

There is not much I can do then. In any case, thanks for your past help. Thanks. Please note that I do admire the passion you have for your vision. Although we ended up having very different opinions on which direction to go, I appreciate that our debate was always level-headed and civil, whether i...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

If not, could you address the Pros and Cons of comprehensiveness I linked above? My goodness, you just don't get it, do you? (or maybe it's us who don't get it :lol: ) An idea can theoretically be right and lofty and beautiful, yet not very workable in practice. The last time we tried utopia, we be...

Is it that filters are hard to make or are they doable but you don't find a comprehensive CLI DB worth it?
Those are the wrong questions.

The right answers are:

- Filters are not worth it
- Comprehensiveness is an illusive and not necessarily useful goal

:D

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

This is my general attitude with tools. Don't get a discontinued one unless you have to (no updates, no support for latest standards, no chance for feedback, tools are often old, etc). The default should be don't even list a discontinued app unless the consensus says make an exception. Don't do it ...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

Windows's echo adds a line break if you pass it to clip: echo string|clip. yecho has an option to strip line breaks from the end. Both sfk echo and yecho strip quotes from the echoed string (echo "string"), Windows's doesn't. Plus many other options, but I just wanted to mention easily missable dif...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

Why only list tools most already know? There are a lot of hidden gems out there! And when imagemagick fails, do you know that graphicsmagick exists? Do you know that ffmpeg can do much of the same? A forum thread for every possible task? Do you know about rxrepl or hideexec or so many excellent les...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

I just realized a lot of my arguments were via PM with vevy, so I shall summarize my position on this below. I think we have 3 options going forward: a) Stop the experiment , shut down the CLI site, I send vevy an export of the database. b) Let the CLI site go live as is . We will see the respond an...

Re: Quick Access Popup

I just received this from the developer: Hi Andrew, I wanted to inform you that Quick Access Popup (QAP) will change its license and sponsoring model for the version v11 to be released in the next week. Instead of relying volunteer donations, QAP now requires a paid licence (lifetime licence or year...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

[*]It could look very different. For example, click to show filters . There are only 2 filters (platform, license) in the example. I am simply wary of having a mess of filters cluttering the detailed search page. In fact, I think what we have now is near the limits of my tolerance. :D If we want to...

Re: Rename System requirements to "OS support" (Edit: or "Supported OS")

If you have say just Win8 and Win10 support, then it comes:

Runs on: 8/10

which seems odd to me.

Re: [Edit page] Move release date field next to version field

As you may be aware, I am an absolute mess what it comes to frontend design. Last facelift was done by tproli way back.

If you guys want any design changes, you'd have to send me the full template (responsive or not).

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Andrew, would it be possible to add a select dropdown to filter searches by category or multiple categories? That way, we could use the existing categories functionality to power the CLI search and we wouldn't need to add new taxonomies for Entry Type, Status, Origin and Tool Type. Care to elaborat...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

It feels like this has evolved into a shouting match between me and vevy :roll: Can someone else talk some sense into either me or him/her? I was like staring at the previous mockup and squeezing my brain to try figure out how any of those things are useful at all. Sorry, it's not working for me. Th...

Re: Comments suggestion

Thanks, but how to subscribe to all comments? There is a little RSS icon to the right of "Recent comments" table. It links to the "All comments" feed. PS: The same RSS icon is also present in the entry comments section for the "Entry comments" feed. PS. @Andrew. The links in the feed need "cli."! :...
