The WasteBucket is back online...

Do you like to promote your wxWidgets based application or component!? Post it here and let's see what the critics have to say. Also, if you found that ONE wx component the world needs to know about, put it here for future reference.

The WasteBucket is back online...

Post by Jorg » Mon Jan 16, 2006 10:19 pm

Hi Guys,

Announcing it once again. Totally revamped now, my site is back online. I was suffering a hack attack (someone must not have liked the content) so I decided to change from Joomla to something else.

I have now a Blog, a Wiki, project tracking, better project documentation, seperate download section etc, more complete and I am planning some more expansion in the future.

I am also looking for people who are willing in posting wxWidgets stuff on the blog. If you feel you can contribute something, tell me. Also if you want to announce your own projects, feel free to blog it on my site :-) Also if you have download links to share, please tell me. I will add them to the downloads section, where people can rate them, comment on them etc.

Hi Jorg,
The WasteBucket is great for your own projects but...

I'm worried that some of the above is redundant with other wx sites (wxCode, wxForum, wxwigets.org itself, etc.). Wouldn't we be better off not duplicating such things?

My interest is broader then wxWidgets. I plan to write multiple articles on my blog also related to C++ General, Delphi, just fun stuff, and hmm I considered wxCode for my components, but I rather keep them on my own site. I plan to put everything online I ever did, because now it is just sitting on my harddisk. I have a ton of cartoons and caricatures I created, and I never published them, small utilities that are good enough but never saw the light of day online. So if someone can benefit from them that will be ok.

So, it's not really redundant. If I write about wxWidgets, I will probably write stuff I found out to be handy, maybe copy parts of the Code Dump forum to show people that it's there, try out new paradigms, and maybe get people to discuss with me about new things. If I write about C++ I write about things I discover to be handy, which might sound trivial to some people, to most it doesn't. I am no real C++ expert, but I know there are lots of people who know less then I do. So there is always someone who benefits from it ;-)

Other then that it's just a placeholder for my work. And considering the wx site idea, how often has this come up, and now months later it is not revamped. I put this site together in 3 days! Why does it take the wx community so long to change the ancient layout to something new? :?:

I suppose I can sometimes post some wxWidgets (development) news. Would be nice if that can be done somehow easy on two blogs (mine and your wx section).

The best is just to register. If I am not mistaken registered people may blog without problems.

It would be nice to once in a while receive news from other people even when it's only related to their own components. It all helps making wxWidgets more visible :-)

Is there a XML-RPC URL for the blog? Wordpress should have it, just not sure what would the link be with the CMS integration... Perhaps an URL containing RPC2?

It is WordPress that is the blog component. What exactly are you looking for ? (you are talking to a newbie and non HTML guru here ;-)

I am talking about the address that could be used for the XML-RPC posting of blogs through a program, such as gnome-blog. Wordpress should support it, but I don't know at what URI to point my program. I'm not sure my primitive app supports categories, but there is some greyed out box in the preferences, that might be it - but I won't know until I have that address ;)

Jorg,

I was attempting to use the wxArchive class you created for a client/server program and ran into a problem. The server compiled fine, but the client gave errors concerning the ConvertToIeeeExtended and ConvertFromIeeeExtended functions.

The problem appears to be that the server was compiled against a 2.6.x version of wxBase while the client was compiled against a 2.7.x version of wxWidgets from CVS HEAD. Apparently someone has added the following to the "wx/math.h" file which now causes conflicts.

Code: Select all

#if wxUSE_APPLE_IEEE
#ifdef __cplusplus
    extern "C" {
#endif
    /* functions from common/extended.c */
    extern wxFloat64 ConvertFromIeeeExtended(const wxInt8 *bytes);
    extern void ConvertToIeeeExtended(wxFloat64 num, wxInt8 *bytes);
#ifdef __cplusplus
    }
#endif
#endif /* wxUSE_APPLE_IEEE */
Do you have any idea how to get this working with the CVS HEAD version?

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

I was not aware that it was removed from 2.7. I copied this from wxWidgets's (basic) serializer. If you do not use floats you can comment it out, I would however appreciate a bug report on this. You can find the link on the Work Wiki:

http://wastebucket.solidsteel.nl/cms/mo ... k=WiwiHome

I will look into it and the compile problems on saturday / sunday as I am totally loaded this next few days :-(

Improvements / comments are always welcome..
