52  DonationCoder.com Software / Android Apps / Other app ideas based on WhenLast code on: February 11, 2015, 04:34:49 PM
My WhenLast app was written so that the code could be re-used for other apps that have similar infrastructure/User-interface/workflow.  Underneath is a pretty flexible library.

So I'm open if people have other ideas that might make use of the code.. With the new sync features, anything that could benefit from multi-device sync would be a good candidate.

One idea i had recently was for a simple checklist/chore app, where you could toggle quickly between an ALL-ITEM view and a TODO view.  So you would switch to the ALL-ITEM view, select a set of chores or todo items to activate, and then switch to the TODO view, where you would see only the items you have selected.  As you (or any sync'd devices) complete each one, you would click it and it would disappear from the TODO view, until you get down to an empty list.  In the ALL-ITEM view you would see when each item was last accomplished (and possibly by which device/user).

As an aside, after playing around with the Genetic Cars again, I was unsatisfied with how some things worked. I saw that the source was available, so I've been referring to it to make something similar in Unity.

Fantastic!  There are few things as enjoyable as writing code that surprises you, and these kinds of experiments can be so enjoyable.

56  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Long essay on the business of starting (feminist) collaborative publications on: February 11, 2015, 02:28:41 AM
Nice long article with lessons learned from someone starting a collaborative publication, discussing issues from what software to use, to paying contributors, to hiring a lawyer.  Focuses on the business end of things.

I am very hopeful that other intersectional feminist tech publications - possibly many others - will start in the coming year. This blog post is my way of supporting these nascent publications: an offering of everything I've learned about starting and running publishing companies...

The instruction:
Quote
In case you are wondering, the formula to calculate the new height of an image based on the existing aspect ratio is height / width * new width.

Is valid.

We can see this (and other related formulas) with some algebra:

For a given height (h) and width (w), we might express the aspect ratio as h/w.

Now imagine we want to construct a new image of height (h2) and width (w2).

If we want these two images to have the same aspect ratio, we can express this by saying that:
h2/w2 = h/w

we can do some simple algebra of multiplying both sides by same values to yield new expressions:
h2 = (h/w)*w2
or
w2 = (w/h)*h2

Sorry I didn't reply to this earlier.

If you go to the "Quick Bar and Post Cap" options page, you will see some options for controlling that pop-capture dialog that you are asking about:

In particular, you can change how the copy button behaves.

And remember you can use keyboard shortcutes to trigger most of the actions in that post capture dialog.
61  DonationCoder.com Software / Android Apps / Re: WhenLast (Android app) on: February 07, 2015, 06:34:45 AM
New beta version uploaded (v1.51) with the ability to enable or disable autosync, plus better and more efficient auto-saving of changes (when in autosync mode, all changes will be automatically saved after a few second delay).
I'd appreciate any testing of these two modes -- I'd like to upload a production version this weekend but with all the rapid changes to these two modes, i would not be surprised if there are some issues to resolve.

Some notes on autosync vs non-autosync modes:

  • When autosync checkbox is enabled, changes to your data file are automatically pushed out to dropbox soon after you make them (not immediately so that if you make multiple changes it wont try to push many times); and dropbox api monitors remote changes so they are detected quickly.
  • When autosync checkbox is not enabled, nothing will be pushed to dropbox, and no remote dropbox scanning will occur until you use the "Scan Now" menu item.  Only then will changes be pushed and pulled.  One consequence of this *may* be that changes on a remote device might be "discovered" on your first check, but that you will get a message that a download is in progress, and to rescan later.  As of now, this means you have to manually scan again in a few seconds/minutes; I will probably automate that later, but right now i'm erring on the side of leaving things manual in this mode.
  • In a future version I might make it possible to switch between auto and manual sync mode based on battery life and/or network connection type (wifi vs cellular).
  • Even in autosync mode, if the app is minimized, it will NOT check for sync updates. In general the app tries to use as little resources as possible when not being actively used, shutting off timers, etc.
  • Widgets will not be auto-updated with sync changes if the main app is not running; they will update only when main app gets a sync update.  I may try to fix this in the future.

"WhenLast" is a simple app that helps you keep track of the last time you performed some activity (like changed the batteries on your smoke detectors).




Latest features include:
  • The ability to sync data across multiple devices.
  • Timed reminders and overdue notifications.
  • Configurable homescreen widgets.



Version 1.82 - Feb 10, 2015
  • Manual sync working well
  • Thanks to DC members cyberdiva and cranioscopical for all the help testing!

Version 1.71beta - Feb 9, 2015
  • Another manual sync bugfix try (manual sync is harder than one would think)

Version 1.56 - Feb 8, 2015
  • More autosync options (disable on battery power, disable on non-wifi connection)
  • Sync bugfixes

export to PDF when you need
if you enable the scanner toolbar, there is even a one-click save-to-pdf button on it.

In a subsequent release editing or clicking now will always perform a save (and sync) soon after.
That'll be an option, right?

good idea.

Some more notes on sync:

  • If you EDIT an item, it is saved immediately and sync will begin automatically.
  • If you just click NOW on an item, the data file is not saved yet.  It will be if you switch away from the app, or when you click the Sync Now menu item.
  • In a subsequent release editing or clicking now will always perform a save (and sync) soon after.
  • If you delete an item, it will be deleted from all synchronized devices.
  • Clicking the "sync now" menu item will give you a status report of the dropbox sync connection.
  • Widgets will not sync by themselves -- a widget's data will not update via sync and won't reflect new values until the app itself is launched by you.
  • The app synchronizes by creating files in your dropbox account, off a subfolder of the Apps directory of your account; you can view, backup, delete, etc. these files just like your normal dropbox files.  Each device uses a unique filename.

Ok I'm going to assume we are talking about my Screenshot Captor tool.  Screenshot Captor knows how to save PDF files, but it has some trouble showing them in its window since they aren't normal images.  They aren't a great format to save in for many reasons.  My suggestion is to take screenshots in PNG format, which is efficient and lossless, and export to PDF when you need (you can even combine multiple images to one pdf).

I will try to add pdf previewing inside Screenshot Captor, but again it's a poor choice for saving screenshots because you can't really edit the files.

Ok so I think you are talking about my Screenshot Captor program -- we sometimes talk on the forum about all kinds of software, so it wasn't completely clear.  I'm going to move this post to the Screenshot Captor section, where it will be easier to talk.

smiley  thumbs up

Glad to hear it's working and thanks for your patience!
I guess I need to add some code to push the data file the first time it syncs instead of waiting for a change.

Let me know how it continues to behave -- and if you get a crash please submit it so I can see what went wrong.

ps.
In the sync options page you can set a custom name for each device so that it shows nicer messages about where a change came from when it syncs.

The message "Status report: Dropbox sync is active and idle." should mean that everything is working.
Try making a change to something (edit an item or just click now on one), and then click the sync now iten from menu.  See what it says. See if a file appears in your dropbox then.

Ok, when you see Playstore Beta release of version 1.49, give that one a try and see if it helps.
If you get a crash, please submit report to play store -- it really helps.

Dropbox says the app still isn't approved for public so that may be the problem -- but it shouldnt be crashing so i need those reports to help track down the issue.
