Feature Request: incorporate ECMA 1.4 javascript PDF Print
(1 vote)

Share this!
Xwidget, the desktop widget design tool, uses a primitive emulation of javascript as its scripting language (along with an approximation of vbscript) however, neither of these implementations is anywhere near complete. The scripting in the Xwidget engine is a bespoke implementation and as such is merely some glue between the IDE and the cores to allow users to customise the extra functionality that is provided by 'cores' or external data sources.

This is an unsatisfactory approach that means the scripting language will never receive the development it really requires leaving the scripting methods as the poor relation with regard to developing actual programs. Without the ability to extend widgets ourselves through scripting, more cores need to be written to allow access to new and fresh data sources but these are closed-source and written in C++ and without the main developer being available 100% of the time the existing cores will degrade over time (generally stop working in relation to their changing data sources) and new cores have been proven to be very slow to arrive.

http://lightquick.co.uk/images/stories/dieselpunk-stuff.jpgIf the xwidget environment is ever going to be considered as a serious contender for real widget development it MUST incorporate one of the main javascript engines that are available that follow ECMA standards as defined by the ECMA body: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECMAScript

If Tony, the Xwidget designer was to incorporate such a 3rd party open source engine (there are several available that others incorporate into their engines) and simply make the additional xwidget functions available to it (via cores) then it would allow developers to use either xwidget's cores or build their own functionality in javascript. It would open the xwidget engine to the world of javascript that is already extant. Hundreds, if not thousands of javascript programs would then be able to run within xwidget. Potentially, most if not all the code that you create for Xwidget would become available to the web.

It frustrates me that Tony set out to create a partial simulation of javascript rather than implementing an existing open source engine. If he had done then most of the limitations that xwidget is experiencing would have been overcome as you could have called upon off-the-shelf functionality to solve any coding problem encountered.

Feature Request: incorporate ECMA 1.4 javascript (or later version) into the new Xwidget 2.0 environment and watch Xwidget mature into a real widget programming environment.

http://duktape.org/ Duktape is such an embedded environment usable from C++. It would truly transform Xwidget from a toy to a serious tool.

Steampunk Weather Widget Forecast Update PDF Print

Truly free weather feeds are tricky things to find. There are plenty of weather data feeds around that purport to be free but actually have a limit to the amount of connections that can be made. All subsequent accesses have to be paid for on a commercial basis. For an individual user to access the data, first he will have to sign up to access the site's API and include that sign-in data into the widget's configuration, all that extra work is complicated for the developer and also for the application user. The developer has the alternative of hard coding that information into the widget but then all the widgets users will use the same sign-in data. Potentially, this results in tens of thousands of accesses to the same data feed and someone has to pay the associated costs. This poor person will be the developer of the widget who owns the actual account.


The weather widget in use on my desktop

This is the situation that occurred with the Xwidget engine. Tony, the developer had a small process running on a server that accessed the accuweather data feed via its API which in turn wrote it to a location on the Xwidget server in a particular format. The Xwidget engine had a 'core', an external data feed function that accesses this data but does not need any sign-in details making it a lot easier for users of the xwidget engine to access. Every user of the Xwidget engine on Windows or Android polls this server for the weather data rather than going direct to the accuweather feed - and so in the end there have been millions of weather data requests going to the Xwidget server - of course in the end it almost died from the sheer work it was doing bringing everything else it was doing to a complete halt (forum, gallery and weather). This was a serious design flaw.

Of course, Tony designed it this way to avoid the complication of having every user forced to sign in to Accuweather's API feed but it seriously backfired.

An alternative to this sort of approach is to use a truly free feed such as the yahoo weather feed that has been around for almost 17 years now. Unfortunately Yahoo has a habit of closing down access to its services, changing its service APIs without a lot of warning, and closing down services arbitrarily. Recent weather API changes caused the failure of widgets and programs around the world, including Yahoo's own weather widget that people have been using for years now. Although the API still works for other uses there are still problems with relying on a free data feed from a commercial organisation that is trying to turn its free offerings into commercial ones. The API security changes indicate a locking down of the weather data service into creating a more commercial operation.

So, a completely free weather data has to be found. Such feeds are available but they are not as plentiful as you would expect. They are more likely to be offered by government bodies, national weather forecasting organisations &c and so a hunt needs to be carried out for a permanent and accurate feed that provides data in a usable format on a regular basis. Access to those are often restricted by secure APIs that require sign in and limit the access to the data.

Searching high and low I found the Romanian weather service offered a free feed that provided METAR data in a decoded format, meaning that I could write a widget that any number of users could run with limitless access. Unfortunately, the information was only available in a decoded format and a lot of the essential data was missing, wind speeds, rainfall &c were all not present. This data feed also had the habit of going offline for long periods meaning that we can assume that it was an unofficial feed and as a result it could not be relied upon. My steampunk weather widget MKI used this feed but the data limitation and unreliability dogged it a little.

Forced again to look elsewhere, another search finally found the aviationweather.gov METAR data feed in raw or decoded format. Access to the data requires no API sign up and there are no limits on the number of accesses that you can perform. It is provided by a US government body, being essential information for aircraft safety and so it is unlikely to ever go offline. It also provides METAR data for the whole world. All that needs to be done is to write the code to perform an XML request, then parse the formatted data to access the current weather observations. This is what I did with my Steampunk weather widget MKII.

The final iteration will be an extension of this widget using the same weather source but this time extracting the TAF weather forecast information. The data is provided in the same format, coded or decoded and so the same program logic can be used to read the data. I am thinking about adding this functionality to my weather widget and it will result in the weather widget MKIII. How to display the forecast is my next task, it must be steampunk and it must be practical yet eclectic in operation.

weather-widget500.png

This code is all in javascript and would be usable by other engines that can use or incorporate javascript. The Xwidget engine uses a subset of javascript as its scripting engine but it is not a full implementation, more of a pseudo-implementation of javascript. It does not allow asynchronous XML requests nor the parsing of the XML DOM. All this would have to be manually implement/kludged and the Xwidget code engine is hard to struggle against being bodged, bugged and undocumented.

The code might be useful to other engines, Rainmeter &c but it would have to be recoded.

If you are interested in having a steampunk weather widget on your desktop that provides a five day weather forecast then keep an eye out here.

Steampunk Orrery, Calendar Yahoo Widget MKII PDF Print

have just been experimenting with various video capture tools, this stuff is not as easy as you think. Finally I have found some video editing tools that seem to suit me with regard to usability and functionality. I am doing this as an exercise as video creation and manipulation has not been one of my higher skills. I've previously been using older video editing solutions/tools on Windows XP and as that o/s has become obsolete so have the tools. They don't work anymore on my Win10 laptop which has meant a dearth of videos. Finally, though I am finding my feet and starting to create again.

The subject? My old Steampunk Timekeeper Orrery, just think of it as a piece of Space 1899 high tech. - perhaps the Martian attack has failed and the humans are returning to Mars for theiru revenge? This is a piece of the Victorian space technology that human space farers might use in their quest for conquest of Mars.

In reality it is my old Konfabulator desktop widget. You can select a date and enter a memorandum for that date, it is fully configurable. An elegant widget- give it a go.


The Steampunk Orrery widget provides a daily memorandum function via a truly steampunk interface. Select a date via the calendar ring and click the date shown and it will allow you to enter a memo or reminder. You can use the ring to select future or past memos and whilst you are doing so the orrery will allow you to reflect on the passage of time and the true nature of this force that controls our lives. Well, you might...

Xwidget engine installs and runs under ReactOS PDF Print
(1 vote)

Share this!

Xwidget installation now works in ReactOS as of version 0.4.3 (alpha) under virtualbox!

The installer: xwidget.com/download3.php xwidget 1.932

Xwidget now runs on ReactOS too... ReactOS 0.4.3 has only just been released, you can get it here (be sure to read the installation instructions - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)  reactos.org/

However, the default widgets display on the desktop but there are some serious  graphical problems. The default widgets partially display their background elements but any animated graphical items are not updated dynamically.

An F5 refreshes certain widgets and they will update - just not dynamically.

eg. This widget installs and runs, an F5 updates the hour/minute hands.
lightquick.co.uk/downloads/pan…

My widget runs rather better than the default widgets, that is possibly because I am not using the in-built animations but rather doing my own in javascript. The default widgets look like backgrounds without graphical elements nor text.

The main xwidget launcher in windows is an icon in the system tray. In ReactOS this icon is not generated. Instead the user has to navigate via the menu system, good news is that the menus seem to work.

The main issue with the widgets, apart from the lack of animation is the issue with transparency. The transparent section behind the widgets is all black.

Not quite an Epic Win but almost! - However, to see a widget engine running at all is quite a respectable achievement! Well done for 0.4.3!

Don't expect to be able to run your widgets successfully on ReactOS, not just yet but this is a step in the right direction -

reactos-desktop01-650.jpg

This is my Panzer clock widget running under ReactOS, I know it looks like Windows, ReactOS is meant to operate just like Windows.

PS. No, the Yahoo Widget engine does not yet install under ReactOS... still broken.

I have Windows, why would I want ReactOS instead? PDF Print
(2 votes)

Share this!

If anyone says, "what's the point in ReactOS, I have Windows, why would I want ReactOS instead?" I give them this list:

1. Safe browsing in a virtual ReactOS sandbox (Firefox)
2. A platform for development using legacy environments (VB6)
3. A platform for widget desktop development and packaging (Yahoo Widget Engine)
4. A platform for graphical design (Photoshop CS ver 8.0 - the oldest and still the best)
5. A platform that I can theme fully without patching.
6. A platform that I can change the underlying o/s fonts, colours without the GUI denying me this capability.
7. A platform I can bundle and distribute with my own customisations - a Windows/ReactOS distro.
8. A platform that I can use multiple instances of for testing
9. A platform that I can build into any x86 computer by default.
10. No licensing restrictions
11. Full DOS gaming under NTVDM.
12. All/most older/current 32bit Windows apps should just function.
13. All/most older/current 32bit Windows drivers should just function.
14. Access to all legacy apps that stopped working under NT6+
15. Access to source code if required for bug-fixing or just for analysis.
16. Real support from a dedicated and growing ReactOS community, you can actually report bugs and obtain feedback!
17. Real support from the Windows community too for all apps/driver problems, at the very least for comparison purposes.
18. Documentation will exist for ReactOS, documentation is always good!
19. Escape from Microsoft's eternal UI redesign - controls, options, everything are right back where I want them to be.
20. Freedom from forced obsolescence by design, being forced by MS to abandon useful software.
21. Freedom to use the o/s of my choice without abandoning all my prior knowledge and experience.
22. There are no restrictions with regard to functionality removed from the different home/professional versions, there are no crippled versions!
23. It is free of DRM restrictions.
24. Gaining an old and familiar desktop environment.
25. Gaining an o/s that is quicker to boot, much slimmer with regard to footprint, and much more efficient in operation.
26. It is free, completely! No licence costs for multiple servers. Multiple instances cost nothing.
27. ReactOS is open source. The code is reviewed by MANY eyes and bugs / security flaws are caught and fixed, rather than ignored and buried.
28. No metro apps that consume more resources than needed.
29. No unwanted telemetry that data mines your system and that saves bandwidth.
30. The ability to port an NT-compatible OS to other platforms, including hypervisors with paravirtualizing capabilities.
31. Ability to compile the source code and know how an NT compatible system actually works, or at the very least, get an idea of how it works.
32. Guaranteed no NSA backdoors.
33. Can run on many different types of filesystems, since NTFS hasn't really been updated since XP.

ReactOS has just reached version 0.4.3 - you can download it here: 

 
Xwidget strikes back! PDF Print

The designer of Xwidgets recently returned to the Xwidget community with a re-issue of the Android version of Xwidgets. It has been reported that he has been working on a new version of the xwidget engine for the desktop but we have seen nothing up until now...

Tony has just dropped a demonstration version of the new Xwidget designer onto the forum for developers to try. It is a cut-down version of the final thing, lacking features and missing essential components as it is still heavily under development. However, it works! I assume that some features may may make the final cut and some may not. When you test the new designer bear this in mind this lack of features and recent gestation.

You can find the new version here: bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Here is my own feedback on the Xwidget 2.0 designer.

Negative points first...

Objects are missing lots of properties (presumably yet to come)

Components are a little threadbare - plenty in development I presume.

I miss the useful icons/buttons at the top, debug, design, code split, log &c - hoping these will re-appear when the design is more complete. They give the new user some direction as to where to go, what to do. They are also familiar and easy to use. I'd hate to see them disappear. The ability to switch to the code window at will using a convenient button has been lost, not good for those of us who are code-oriented. I know there is the little script button at the bottom of the page but it is tucked away and feels hidden. I expect the main helpful functions to be sited together where they are intuitively useful. The option to revert to the icons/buttons should be provided then the new designer will feel a friendly place to be rather than one where our knowledge and skills to operate the IDE are lost. Icons are useful! Give us the option to have icons, to make them smaller or larger and to place them where we want them - just as almost ALL other code editors do. We should be able to show/hide toolbars as we require. Windows users expect applications with icons and and menus in the expected location. Let us not alienate our Windows users with different methods of operation.

The black overall theme of the Xdesigner - I particularly dislike it. All my code windows, IDEs and text editors use white background and black text going back to the late 1980s. That is what I am familiar with and that is what I like. I strongly suggest an option to revert to a more traditional theme for the designer. I don't draw on a blackboard, I design using pen and paper...

Image
Xdesigner 2.0 Proposed new version

Let the user determine the font to use for the Xdesigner in the various panels, the current font is too large, I prefer something smaller, some might prefer something larger, give us an option to configure the Xdesigner, font, colours &c.

The code window -the default font has changed and there is no option to revert to another font. I know which font I prefer for my code and it certainly isn't arial or similar.

There is still no option to change the font size on the code designer forcing the Xdesigner window to be displayed covering a lot of the user's screen.

The Xdesigner starting up in full screen mode every time is unwelcome.

The overall look and feel of the Xdesigner appliication is a tadge dull and boring in comparison to version 1.0. It has taken the 'modern' theme as provided by Microsoft and has followed it slavishly. As a result the new designer is a boring place to be where as the older version has colour and is vibrant. I don't like Microsoft's new style, it is corporate and bland and it would be good to be able to configure the style ourselves. See how vibrant the old designer was.

Image
Xdesigner 1.0, bright and vibrant, it looks like an IDE.

I don't like the change from 'widget' to 'theme'. A widget is a discrete component, whereas a theme is a more comprehensive set of styles and components that produce an overall "look and theme". I would be disappointed if the xwidget designer was more oriented toward themes rather than desktop objects such as widgets. I suggest reverting to 'widgets' or 'objects' if the term widget is now out of date. I think the term 'theme' is misleading in this context. I know what I mean by theme and I believe most of the world thinks the same way. If the new version is tending towards the creation of whole themes then I think the change is a step too far and a step away from the whole concept of xwidgets... I strongly suggest that a rethink is performed here that allows those that want to create discrete widgets to continue.

I don't like the change from 'layer' to 'page'. A layer is an easily understandable concept when it comes to designing a widget comprising images, whereas a page has a relationship with a document rather than a programmable object. I would be disappointed if the xwidget designer was more oriented toward documents rather than desktop objects such as widgets. I suggest reverting to 'layers'. I think the term 'page' is misleading in this context. I know what I mean by layer or page and I believe most of the world thinks the same way.

The new Xdesigner is not backward compatible. I cannot open any old widgets using the new Xdesigner, does that mean we have to start from scratch with every design? Poor me ? Poor JimKing! There MUST be a compatibility mode or a widget mode allowing the designer to open and configure previous objects.

I do not like not being able to close my widget/theme without closing the whole Xdesigner.

I do not like not being able to open the Xdesigner without creating a new theme every time. I should be able to open the designer without opening an existing theme or opening a new one. If the Xdesigner is an IDE then make it an IDE that you can open and run and use for your own purposes. I do not wish to be forced to open a project every time.

Code window code highlighting - it seems to highlight keywords in a similar fashion as before, which is good but I must be able to define the colours. The current colours are garish, jarring and all wrong. My current code editor is Kate from the KDE stable, it is an advanced code editor, is highly configurable, colours can be changed - and Tony could take serious hints on operation from that source. kate-editor.org/2016/04/29/kat…

Image
Kate Editor showing my preferred code colours that I have used for years now.

Assigning some code to an image object now takes even more clicks, it takes seven in total to get to the code. In the VB6 IDE (one of the best IDEs in the world) a double-click on an object in designer mode took you directly to the code and straight to the onclick event, the most commonly used event. Seven clicks to get to the code is ridiculous - and is more than the old Xdesigner that only took three!

The function list is gone from the code window, it was useful. Let's have it back please.

Some events are missing, I'm hoping they will return, ONkey events on images and other objects are required, they did not actually work on the old runtime but at least the events were present in the Xdesigner...

Split mode is missing entirely, I presume/hope it will return.

Most windows have the X or close button on the wrong side of the title bar. It is in the wrong place compared to ALL other Windows applications. Let us not alienate our users with different methods of operation. Windows users expect all buttons to be in the expected location. This is not Linux.

-oOo-

Bugs:

The Xdesigner made changes that I did not want. It is saving when I don't want it to. I made changes to the default theme, deleting the background image on the layout item and then exited the designer specifically without saving my changes but they have still been applied. When I re-opened the theme the background was gone.

Ctrl/F - search - is definitely not working, ACK produced instead of a pop-up search window.

The switch to 'debug' mode by clicking on the 'play' button is very, very, very slow. Debug mode in the old Xdesigner was instant and very useful. A slow debug mode is useless and debug mode will not be used as a result. If it is slow then remove it. My system is a core i7 3.4ghz with an SSD and I wait over 10 seconds for it to render a 'theme'. If this is the penalty for converting to themes then I don't want themes, I want widgets and an IDE that is quick to debug. I have dropped IDE's that were awkward to use. I previously dropped xDesigner 1.0 due to a clunky interface and awkward operation, I don't want to drop Xdesigner 2.0 due to a slow IDE.

-oOo-

Suggestions:

Feature Request: XWidget does not capture a keypress on an image bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?… This is essential to allow a widget to react to hotkeys or keypresses. Other programs/widget engines have this functionality.

Feature Request: On the Xdesigner, the new 'action and command' window, a click on the function should take you to the function in the code window.

Feature Request: Object ordering within a layer is clumsy, only allowing 'bring to front' and 'send to back'. Very primitive when you have 50 or more objects. A simple move backward/forward option would allow more advanced ordering.

Feature Request: Xwidgets still has no preferences function where you can build your own widget configuration options. See Yahoo widgets for an example of how this should be done.

Feature Request: Make it possible to bind keys to specific tasks so for example the F3 key can be bound to call the search function and to repeat the search function as necessary. All windows applications use CTRL/F and F3 to search.

Feature Request - Alt+F+S to operate as other windows applications do! Give us menus to perform hot key operations using the keyboard such as save/opening widgets. All windows applications have this functionality. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?… No need to deny Xwidget's platform roots.

Feature Request: Code Search Function - Enhance the search, allow search from top www.bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.…

Feature Request: Allow default image to display any type, animated GIF, APNG, .ANI or other image format. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Feature Request: Transparent areas of PNGs to be excluded from being recognised as a valid click event. It should always click through transparent areas automatically.

Feature Request: Give progress bars absolute values. Progress bars can be used to give a sliding indicator showing any value. They are useful as visual analogue indicators of values directly from cores but only for cores that express their values as percentages. Unfortunately, they are next to useless when showing anything that does not equate to a percentage value. For example a temperature cannot be expressed in terms of percent. A temperature is an absolute, it is a measurement. It has no maximum which could equate to 100%. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Feature Request: Tooltips are not supported in the current version of the Xwidget engine, only 'hints'. Hints are massive, tooltips are discrete. Let Xwidget 2.0 provide tooltips once again.

Feature Request: NetMonitor Boolean network availability. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Feature Request: Windows Media player core, data source needs a revamp, it can't select a track for playing immediately. The current core is simply poor quality. Using the WMplayer OCX gives complete access to the Windows Media player and so I don't quite understand how the old media player core has basic and essential control missing. Fix it please!

Feature Request: Alternative media player cores, data sources. VLC is required at least, target open source players please. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Feature Request: The speedfan core, data source needs to identify the sensor names correctly. It is possible by reading the names of the sensors in speedfansens.cfg.

Feature Request: Open Hardware Monitor core, open source and preferred alternative to speedfan &c. This is the future for hardware monitoring, uses WMI to store the data.

Feature Request: Data source API to be disclosed so that we can write cores ourselves... I have written my own speedfan core for use with another widget engine. We could write them, expose the interface, explain what we should be using, give us the source code of a demonstration core. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

Feature Request: Far more focus and orientation toward producing widgets for Android. In particular gesture based events that we can code and design in Windows and build for Android. More working cores/data sources for Android. The current set is too limiting. I was expecting so much more from this aspect of Xwidgets and it really needs to be addressed. bbs.xwidget.com/viewtopic.php?…

-oOo-

Things I like:

In the editor single-clicking on the line number highlights the line.

The highlighting text duplication bug seems to have gone away.

Changing 'cores' to 'data sources' seems more intuitive.

In code edit mode clicking on an open bracket selets the end bracket - good!

Much easier to grab and drag the IDE's frames to resize the various areas.

The ability to resize the design using the mouse scroll wheel is very welcome.

I like the resizing controls on the Xdesigner.

I prefer the properties being located beneath one panel instead of being grouped under several panels as before, although I can imagine that some might prefer the older method, perhaps this could be configurable?

I like the new ability to assign right-click context-related menus to specific objects.

-oOo-

In general I am pleased with the new designer, it is professional and so far a step in the right direction. It MUST have configuration options to change the look and feel so it matches the older designer in order to avoid alienating users.

Personally I wouldn't bother with changes to the look and feel, I would focus on fixing bugs, improving functionality, providing new data sources and bringing the code editor up to scratch and give us the tools/cores to perform cross-platform Widgets to Android. Change is fine but only when it brings improvement. The trend towards themes disturbs me. If this is a themeing engine and we cannot create discrete widgets anymore then I'd be seriously annoyed if I was one of the main widget designers...

I don't mind the idea of themes but I do not want it to subvert the concept of discrete widgets.

Other than that, it is a good offering so far. The best thing is that it proves Xwidget is NOT dead after all and the developer really is working on the new version.

I've always loved this game, it has a certain something that distinguishes it from other games. A sense of real fear is engendered, you feel under threat all the time. There is a familiarity in the landscape that makes you feel you understand your predicament even more so it is eve more real. The concept of polite and evil English-accented robots extends the evil English baddie metaphor quite cleverly. I love the game.
