Hey @Damocles, @app103! Thanks for the interest in the app.

I'm actually getting up to date with a couple ones from last year in the next few days (i.e. the multilingual word counter, other) as soon as they're done, I proceed to clear the odd System32 (new) bug --which is quite odd since it only reads & writes settings data on the same folder as the exe... (at least that's how it's intended).

For the future, I would only suggest, but only if they are not too much work:
1) trying to mute the audio if the windows sound system is already playing audio (from a video etc.) (code in one of the posts above in this thread).
2) a scheduling option of some sort. (this user interface for scheduling looks interesting:

Sure thing. Scheduling is a must and we're going to add it to next Major version.

--Let's clear ALL the bugs first to call this branch complete to feature-freeze as first stable release (version 1.0.0)  :Thmbsup:

Merry Christmas!!!

Personally, I feel very blessed of having met you wonderful people to close the year 2019 & 2010's decade :)

I know we are set to have a most-positive time in 2020 :Thmbsup:


I think this is ok, as long as people understand this isn't an official rule of the site, just one member stating that they would like to be compensated for working on a program..

Thank you Mouser. You described exactly what this is.

...Even a little sponsorship gets a lot done for the benefit of everyone interested in the program(s) :Thmbsup:

As with any new service, it may take a bit for people to spread the word around & get the "gist" of it, yet I'm sure this will appeal to the fellows who want a certain coding snack accomplished & don't mind supporting.

(It's all in the open via this thread, so we operate in full transparency)

Cheers & many thanks again!

I'm finally home & ready to engage on my "coding spree" :)

This is my first N.A.N.Y. but certainly not the last, as my dream is devoting full-time to developing for the public domain.

(Ye olde brain lights-up when I do public domain development and I pretty much think it is a reflection that comes straight from the soul, given it directly helps the fellows who appreciate it the most)

It's all connected!

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / [Service] SPONSOR A SNACK!
« on: December 17, 2019, 12:59 PM »
Hello guys!

If you would like me to focus on any given coding snack of your choice with priority this one is for you :Thmbsup:

The rules of the service are rather simple:

  • If you are a steady DonationCoder member (one year or more), you can simply reply below for us to engage.
  • If you are under a year old in the forum, we can engage and agree on an estimated delivery date, yet you must send the agreed PayPal first for me to do the coding.
  • You can sponsor ANY coding snack past & present, requested by another fellow forum member or by yourself.

That's it.

All transactions are made in the open for full transparency.

All resulting programs are open-source (CC0 Licensed) Public Domain dedication.

Depending on the difficulty of the snack, we will mutually agree to any of: $15 - $20 - $25.

You can always open a new thread if you have a coding snack in mind you'd like programmed using this service.

Again, both new and existing threads are welcome for us to to engage.

Thank you!

I'm looking for a hotstring/textpander software.

Hello chashnniel, do feel free to add a new thread on the new requests section! (It sounds interesting to take :Thmbsup:)

As I begin doing this N.A.N.Y. program, the name has been altered a bit to pdCodeVault.

Hello c-sanchez!

As I begin December's coding, I can do this one for you :Thmbsup:

Please tell me what do you want to achieve with this (exactly).

Is the whole program based on parsing to extract everything?

Should the filtering be done multiple times on the resulting files after they're written to your computer (i.e. download in bulk then filter multiple times)?

Is this the case?

Do feel free to express at ease for us to engage!


Version 0.3.2 is out!


Please check & provide feedback on the implemented features :Thmbsup:

No problemo! Discuss as you please!  :-*

I have been long searching for a really nice code-snippet keeper.

Thanks for your participation BGM! pdCodeBank pdCodeVault it is for N.A.N.Y 2020!  :Thmbsup:

Hello there!

As I've been invited to join N.A.N.Y. 2020 by mouser (thank you!) I would like to use this opportunity to ask if you guys have a program bigger than a "snack" you would like me to code?

My aim is being of most service to the community so if you have an idea for a medium-sized program you'd like to have implemented, feel free to shoot it below :)

While the core of development will be done in December; November is still young so you're invited to make suggestions at ease. Windows/Linux is OK.

Thanks PD, but how do I make it work?

Hello fred, my pleasure! :)

Feel free to grab a copy of the program: Book Synopsis Template v0.1.0 download-1294449_16.png

It should be very intuitive (see video):

Anything else, just "shout"; this is the very first version so there's always room for improvement.

Rest assured assistance is just one message away :Thmbsup:

Roger that Fred!

I've made an itsy-bitsy change to make this more flexible / future-proof.

You now need "entry-begin" and "entry-end" comments in your "template.txt" file (in the same directory).

Code: HTML5 [Select]
  1. <section class="container">
  3.   <p class="txt--center font-bold--200">[CHARACTER-NAME] Series</p>
  5.   <article>
  7.     <!-- entry-begin -->
  8.     <div>
  10.       <h2 id="[BOOK-ID]">[BOOK-TITLE]</h2>
  12.       <a href="[FILE-PATH]"><img src="[IMAGE-PATH]" alt="book-cover" height="200" /></a>
  14.       <p>[BOOK-SYNOPSIS] <a class="read-book-link--maroon" href="[FILE-PATH]">Read the book!</a></p>
  16.     </div>
  17.     <!-- entry-end -->
  19.   </article>

The program should be done by tomorrow [took one more day, but it's complete], to go along October's end releases.

The site with the news video I want is mentioned, but I wasn't able to install youtube-dl. :( The required Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package is installed, but the youtube-dl installer fails again and again...

There is a portable release of youtube-dl (GUI):


Hopefully it gets the job done :Thmbsup:

OK, final bit of input needed:

- E-book extensions?

(For file browse dialog filter)


[EDIT: taking a guess with EPUB, MOBI, AZW, PDF, ODF and LIT. Just want you to confirm your books' file extensions as they are on disk, given their variety on the market :Thmbsup:]

Hi, thanks for this ... in the last <p> "read the book" anchor, I've added the synopsis and a space after.

Roger that! (I'm working with a copy from your first post, so it's ok)

Don't despair Fred; this definitely comes out in current releases' batch.


We're almost there!

OK, I've started the "Book Synopsis Template" GUI project.

Replacements being:

Code: HTML5 [Select]
  1. <section class="container">
  3.   <p class="txt--center font-bold--200">[CHARACTER-NAME]  Series</p>
  5.   <article>
  7.     <div>
  9.       <h2 id="[BOOK-ID]">[BOOK-TITLE]</h2>
  11.       <a href="[FILE-PATH]"><img src="[IMAGE-PATH]" alt="book-cover" height="200" /></a>
  13.       <p><a class="read-book-link--maroon" href=[FILE-PATH]">Read the book!</a></p>
  15.     </div>
  17.   </article>

Posting first release version next.

Preferably in a .ini file in the same directory (so that the app is kept portable)

Okay, after trying some ini libraries (such as Enichan/Ini) It's back to simple dotnet-native XML.

Should be rather easy to read & edit too.

Apart from this, the program reflects your petitions to the letter.

Expect it in the next few days, as I'm resuming October's releases

whoa i forgot how awesome the coders here are  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Thank you for sharing your appreciation superboyac, it is my passion and my pleasure to assist :-*

I just want to ask what languages to include on first version.


Top 20 languages? Just these two?
