Extraction and settings fields are now optional.
👍

As for the open source search, I was judging based on an empty search. Empty detailed search with "open source" checked vs unchecked yield the same number of results (the entire DB). It did work properly when I used search terms.

Hi!

Some quick feedback:

- The changelog button disappeared again. Edit: nvm. It returned! :?
- I can't see my comments under the entries. :/ For example: https://cli.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=342
- When using the [_size] tag in the entries, the line spacing should also decrease (otherwise, space savings are minimal). I added this to the mini-requests.

Don't think I will change this.

Firstly, this is built-in code in nbbc, a PHP library used for converting bbcode to HTML.

Secondly, the code generated is simply

Code: Select all

<span style="font-size: xx em">text</span>
which seems to be as plain vanilla HTML as you can get.

If you can find away around it, you could try style="font-size: xxem; line-height: xxem; display: block;".

If not, I will try to find another way around it. Tables (split the list into multiple columns)?

Could you send me sample HTML of what you are trying to achieve?

Workaround might be to introduce a new bbcode tag.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post about this, but I've seen reference to cli.portablefreeware.com on the forums, but it's only accessible to those with access.

Is cli.portablefreeware.com only for testers at the moment or am I missing something?
is it stealth? ;)

I often have to enter that 2x for some reason.

Tbh, I don't want you to spend too much time/effort on this. Anyway, here is an example:

size=2:
  • normally: "font-size: 0.83em;"
  • suggested: "font-size: 0.83em; line-height: 1.2em; display: block;"
Here are a couple of pics (normal size, size 2 currently, suggested size 2):

Um, Would you take a look at the first post, especially the "current priorities"?

Yes, will do.

And thanks for the your clarification on the size + line height issue. I just wanted to understand exactly what was being requested.

Thanks, thepiney!

My first impression is thanks to all the work by vevy, Andrew and all the others for getting things going! This is going to be great once completed!

Secondly, I think we do not need a single entry for basic CLI utility tools like mkdir. I think just the collection like Busybox and Yori is sufficient, but perhaps that's just me. I think once private listings is no longer the default view, this should be okay though.

Apps like youtube-dl and ffmpeg are listings I would expect to see.

@freakazoid

As I see it, there should be two systems for deciding on tools:
1. Hidden/private: for tools that are, for example, not dependable, crashy, barely-functional, etc.
2. A promote/demote system: Promote the really excellent tools. Demote what you don't like.

Many times a tool can later show its value after you had decided against it. This is one of the main reasons I try to be as comprehensive as possible, especially that there is not other comprehensive CLI database out there.

How complicated can a tool like "clip" or "echo" can be, right?

Well, Windows's clip butchers Unicode text, and so does sfk toclip. yclip doesn't.

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 differences.

Add them all (unless they outright don't function) and let the user decide :wink:

I skipped download URL fields because I think it shouldn't not be inheritable because a lot of download notes/dependencies/warnings are in the main package.
I still think this.

Also, thanks for the work with the first post, but I meant it more like implement Win Package, additional statuses, etc :oops: .
  • It doesn't have to be pretty if that will take time. I just need the checkbox as a baseline.
Thanks

PS. I see the default status of a request to be KIV, so you don't have to add it manually. :D Just if you approve/reject etc.
