@gep13
did you get somewhere with this? I created an issue on Github and assigned it to myself so I was going to be starting to work on it, but it are going to be doing it, I will leave it. If you are working on things like this though, can you make sure to create an issue for it, and keep it's status up to date so that we know where things are at? Cheers

Sorry, not much has happened this week. I did start looking into it, but that was about the extent of my efforts.
Just hanging out Ryan?
Ryan Rauh
@rauhryan
haha yeah just lurking your room
admiring your HuBoard integration :)
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
:P
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
ha ha, lurkers are more than welcome! :-)
@RichiCoder1 not a problem. I should have some time on Tuesday, so if I get to it before you, I will grab the GH Issue and assign it to me.
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@gep13 Sorry for dropiing off the radar. It's been a suprisingly busy past little while >_<
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@RichiCoder1 not a problem at all, these things happen. It is the nature of OSS, and it is to be expected. :-)
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Close all the things!
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
yip yip yip
it's the best part :-)

I really should have tested that powershell loading screen more. I could have sworn I fixed the button text and set a max height on the powershell dialog
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
ha ha, not a problem. I really think I like the addition of the progress window now with the addition of the powershell window. It was a little jarring to start with thought, as I wasn't expecting it.
what control do we have over it? i.e. could the background of the window be made to be the same control as teh progress window?
i just wonder if that would be slightly more intuitive
if that is the right word
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
I'm not sure what you mean. Everything you see in that window is customizable though. I just originally made it to appear as close to an actual console as possible to give the impression of it being a real one.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
yeah, didn't think I explained myself very well. I haven't look at the code, so not entirely sure how you have implemented it, but sounds as though you have styled the progress window to look like a PowerShell window, as opposed to shelling out to PowerShell and displaying the results.
i love the fact that we are seeing the full progress of the commands, I just wonder whether it should be displayed in colours closer to the progress window, i.e. the cream colour, with black text, rather than the standard PowerShell blue and white text
it was just a little "jarring" to me when I first opened the application, and then when I ran the update all command
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
It's....complicated. The actual "console" is just a rich text box, but it's receiving input from a full blown UI wrapper around the powershell process.
I could definitely make the console blend in and appear more normal.
I might actually make the console backround a chocolate background with cream text so there's still some distinction between the console and the progress modal
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
yip, i think that would work
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
I pulled the color scheme largely from ChocoPM, so the powershell-ish theme made a lot more sense against the black and blue theme there xD
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
ah gotcha
on the whole though, the application is really shaping up! You have a lot to be proud of! :-)
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Powershell interop is suprisingly complex. I'll greatly appreciate it if and when we move over to another method.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
If Rob get's his way, the next version of Chocolatey will be an exe, similar to what you get with nuget.exe, so that should hopefully as a lot easier to work with :-D
anyway, that is me for the night, need to head
talk to you later
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Ttyl!
Have a good night
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
you too!

@ferventcoder
So can anyone come in here or is it limited to committers?
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Any can ATM
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
yeah I say Ryan popped in
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@ferventcoder @RichiCoder1 if the Github Repo were private, then only members of the repo could join a Gitter conversation, but any public repo is open to anyone
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@gep13 Haha, completely dropped of the face of the earth didn't I? I'm planning on setting aside a few hours this week to attack the remaining issues.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
nice

Hi, I'm interested in contributing, noticed a few usability issues with the release build, had a look at the alpha WPF build, so much better. Good job guys.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
Hello @jackkav, thank for dropping by! We would welcome any contributions that you would like to offer. Did you have anything specific in mind? Thanks!
jackkav
@jackkav
Well my first stumbling block was the alpha GUI wont let me install, because its a fresh install and running scripts is disabled. (PSSecurityException) Yet the release build works fine. Then there is plenty of scope for the WPF gallery, hover over descriptions, smoother search and pagination. Testing, bug fixes, anything else, I'm not bothered how I'm contributing just eager to help out. I haven't worked on anything open source yet, but I'm familiar with all of the tools you are using. Cheers.

Hello @jackkav if there is anything in particular that you want to start working on, feel free to raise an issue for it on the Github site here: https://github.com/chocolatey/ChocolateyGUI/issues?direction=desc&sort=updated&state=open and then we can start discussing it in more depth, and once everyone is happy, we can start accepting pull requests to get the features/suggestions/defects included into the beta version of ChocolateyGUI. You will also see a number of open issues, all of which are essentially "up for grabs" if there is something that you feel that you can help out on, free feel to jump right in :-)

@gep13 Goodness, someones moving busily.
Anything I can do to help? Still crazy busy, but I'll have some free tim esoon
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@RichiCoder1 I have finally got some time to do some stuff, so I thought I would jump in :-)
