Just got Qt5.8 working on the Raspberry Pi 3. Time to build hifi again and post some results

Is there a cmd-line argument I can pass into the interface executable from Visual Studio to instantly point it to localhost?
Launching the standard server in debug is x_x

@cozza13 do you know the answer to this?

(poor network connectivity isn't helping either)

@mittens you can use --url "hifi://localhost"

ah, lovely
thank you
(I did look through the docs before asking, but didn't see anything, JUST SO YOU KNOW I'M NOT LAZY)
(though they're actually in there and I missed them I'm just dumb. but that's no surprise)

I've been wanting to centralized our cla and make a '--help` for a while, maybe I should get to it.
@mittens Ahah, no worries, totally our fault here. As I said before, our docs are far from complete/up to date.
But we've got people working on it as we speak.
So it should get progressively better.

@Atlante45 I'll add this to the documentation list Nimisha has started

is this quantity of assignment-client processes normal?
Clément Brisset
@Atlante45
Mar 27 2017 21:37 UTC
Yup
Trent Polack
@mittens
Mar 27 2017 21:38 UTC
hrm, then debug is just reaaaaaaaal slow
Clément Brisset
@Atlante45
Mar 27 2017 21:38 UTC
It is, most of us run in RelWithDebugInfo.
Trent Polack
@mittens
Mar 27 2017 21:38 UTC
RelWithDebInfo should be better, yeah?
JINX

And there's also an option in VS to turn off memory allocation tracking that helps a lot.
Can't remember what it is though.

apparently gitter prefers thumbsdown over thumbsup first

perhaps it's used to disappointment?

_NO_DEBUG_HEAP=1
that disabled the debug-heap on VS2013
VS2015 defaults to disabled already
Trent Polack
@mittens
Mar 27 2017 21:51 UTC
oh, huh, i just was so used to that being disabled by default
(I use 2015 primarily)
ty muchly

BTW, we should run on 2015/2017 now I believe. As long as you build with a 2013 solution and don't update it.
@mittens If you're curious about the assignment clients, if you go to libraries/networking/src/Assignment.h. There an enum at the top:
    enum Type : uint8_t {
        AudioMixerType = 0,
        AvatarMixerType = 1,
        AgentType = 2,
        AssetServerType = 3,
        MessagesMixerType = 4,
        EntityScriptServerType = 5,
        EntityServerType = 6,
        AllTypes = 7
    };
This is all the assignment types.

ahhhh
interesting

We spawn one a each, except the Agent type that can get more in some situations + an assignment monitor that monitors all those processes, grabs and organizes their logs, etc.

i've been glancing through the codebase here and there, it's interesting
i've been so deep in UE4 the last few months that it's fun seeing different architectures

If you want an overview of each component, I can give you a quick one if you're interested.
Probably something that should be in the docs eventually. (If it isn't already)

Thanks, that'd be great; I'll ping you tomorrow, I'm drowning in codeine and sick meds atm
