The above mock-up is very rough.
- It doesn't contain e.g. filter by size, license, etc.
- It could look very different. For example, click to show filters.
Yeah, you're right. vevy's filters were for search results; I was thinking about the actual search page. But I can see how filtering search results by category would be useful.
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. If we want to add new filters, we should remove some existing ones.
Oooh! Pulling rank, are we? Well I have to go over your head then!Andrew Lee wrote: ↑Wed Oct 14, 2020 5:01 pmThere are only 2 filters (platform, license) in the example.

It seems to me there is a desire for a CLI site. And the voting for filters is improving!
It should be stated for casual visitors that nobody's getting paid to do this, so what anyone does here is entirely up to their good graces. Andrew didn't just create this place, he's been actively supporting it for over a decade now. vevy has also put together a ton of great info and resources. This is just a dispute about next steps, not about the contributions of both people.vevy wrote: ↑Sat Oct 31, 2020 9:35 pmIf you want to see a database in our site gathering all the CLI tools without a central home into one place where you can find hidden gems as well as other working alternatives, please let it be known and don't keep your interest to yourself, because otherwise, it may seem that nobody cares about this project and it will die.
That's way too mean.
Seconded and acknowledged.
I didn't mean that in a mean way at all. I meant: can you visualize a scenario in your mind where the sequence of events will lead you to say: "Hmm, perhaps this filters idea is worth doing after all."?
You realize you have been literally the only one pushing for an extremely high number of features, filters and stuff?
As I touched on above, some of the fixes/changes are very small. I have been trying to explain my ideas and let others see what excites me about them so that there would be enough interest to motivate him to help on the DB, but it is tough to continue if there is no response even with the little things. :sigh:The reason you aren't convincing Andrew is because pretty much no one here considers all these features to be worth the effort. I don't find Andrew an exceptionally stubborn individual.
