Oh, that brings back memories. That's the original original ChocolateyGUI
Varriount
@Varriount
@RichiCoder1 Was that written in C#? It looks like the classic GDI UI elements.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 @gep13 what's up with the latest chocolateyGUI prerelease (285)? and how do I see what code that ties back to?
Dies immediately on an XML XAML parse
actually, I may have found one of my problems (bad setting in licensed v1.12.0)
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Seriously though, how do I link a GUI build back to source? If you don't have a way to do this from the installation itself, let's file an issue
Kim J. Nordmo
@AdmiringWorm
@ferventcoder doesn't the build supprt GitLink? Never used it myself though, so don't know how it's used
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@gep13 would have that answer...

As you can see, not that helpful in the current context. Include the commit sha (use git describe to build your version)
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
That shouldn't, in theory, be hard. @gep13 would indeed be the person to poke, but if he doesn't get around to it I'll look into it :)
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Any links I can look at for now to know what I'm installing?
Kim J. Nordmo
@AdmiringWorm
If I'm unserstanding everything correctly, it just looks like the different libraries dob't use a common fil with the a ser of common assembly attributes, but rather just use their own AssemblyInfo.cs file which isn't updated by gitversion on build. (Well the main one is though). I suggest perhaps extracting common Assembly attributes to their own file (Like, AssemblyCoyright, AssemblyVersion, AssemblyVersion, etc. Oike what's done in The Cake software, or most of their available addins), then just link that file to each Assembly.
I should really stop typing on my mobile, I never get it right. Basically, extracting common assembly attributes to its own file and linking to it in all of the assemblies should fix the screenshot you post. IMO
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
I could've sworn we were doing that, but I guess not :<
@ferventcoder Nope, no way currently.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
yikes
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Tell me about LiteDB
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
I thought I found the issue with bypass proxy and allow self service settings
chocolatey/ChocolateyGUI#455
but not quite
Manfred Wallner
@mwallner
concerning the differnet AssemblyInfo.cs files - there would also be https://www.nuget.org/packages/Cake.Bumpy/ :-) - 'bumpy' is a project of a friend of mine - sweet little tool that allows to just increment a build number based on a given criteria in all found (wildcard) AssemblyInfo or Nuspec files. ( https://github.com/fwinkelbauer/Bumpy )
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Choco already does this (along with most things I've been involved with). New options are fine, they just need to automatically put the commit sha in one of the version numbers.
It's incredibly difficult to support without some tie back over time
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" my favorite error :/
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Gotta love null errors :<
Where/how did you see it? Logs?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Logs are not helpful
when I take the latest code in develop and try to run it with non-admin
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 can I get a warm and fuzzy about the above?
Manfred Wallner
@mwallner
hey @ferventcoder , @RichiCoder1 - I've been running into a interesting problem with the GUI lately: I've created a couple of "big meta-packages" at work defining certain "usage-groups" like "main-product-dev", "product-docu" etc, that have dependencies on lots of other packages. - some of them take relatively long to install (like vs2015 ^^) - to overcome a potential timeout (some of my coworkers are in remote locations with sub-optimal internet access) I'm setting the commandExecutionTimeoutSeconds during the install of those large packages. - this works, when running from CLI, but not from the GUI
uh, maybe I can provide a short form of the text above x_x
"The GUI doesn't adapt to config changes made in a chocolatey install script" -> probably a good title for a Issue ? :D
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
:+1: (without reboot)
Also consider 0, infinite timeout
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 @gep13 @mwallner any updates into what may be causing the issue with self-service hookup?
Manfred Wallner
@mwallner
Not yet, will try to look into at the weekend

@/all ^^
just pushed a version of ChocolateyGUI that once again contains the full version number
this functionality was removed when we switched from psake to Cake
have put this back in play again
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Awesome!

Hey folks. Just found out about Chocolatey. Pretty neat. Any decent web gui? I found Chocolately GUI but it's clumsy and not really user friendly. Something like Ninite where I can pick a bunch of apps and install with one shot.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
Chad - there are at least two sites that have that kind of experience out there, no idea whether they are being maintained or not. The GUI you installed, if the interface was not blue we agree with you. The new version is still in prerelease but head to the github page for this room and you will see that

GUI losing settings when it goes between process and subprocess, something is wacky
EntranceJew
@EntranceJew

I have some usability concerns (using ChocolateyGUI 0.13.2.0)
The base issue stems from having a few problem packages that I like installing from chocolatey but do not want to update at every opportunity.
this means:

  • i can't use "update all", that's a given
  • i can't ctrl+click to select all the packages i want, minus the ones i wish to exclude -- right clicking with multiple selected appears to only impact the clicked package chocolatey/ChocolateyGUI#424
  • i can't right-click a package and select to ignore its updates / move it to a separate view/list
  • i can't get around this bug chocolatey/ChocolateyGUI#462

from the GUI, this looks like:

  1. click "Show Only Packages with Updates"
  2. right-clicking a single package
  3. clicking "Update"
  4. untick "Show Only Packages with Updates"
  5. click "Refresh Packages"
  6. retick "Show Only Packages with Updates"
  7. repeat from 1, for N packages (sometimes up to 13!)

@gep13
@EntranceJew can I get you to try out the latest version of the ChocolateyGUI application? You can install this from the instructions on the project home page
