Yesterday the Web Based Logbook project got a new owner and lead developer.
My friend Donald from the ZhyperNetwork is now in charge of the development and have decided to keep the WBL project exclusive to ZhyperNetwork.
That may change in the future...
The latest source have been sent out to all users of WBL before the ownership change, it is up to those users if they want to continue with the opensource project or not.
ZhyperNetwork have been the only sponsor for the WBL project and have supplied me with test servers throughout the development for testing, lets with them good luck with the continual development of the project! :)
Since porting takes time, i decided to give a little sneakpeak on how far the porting have come.
I will tell right away that there is an issue with wxcocoa/wxwidgets2.9 and the calendar in the logviewer on mac, so by default the application will use wxWidgets2.8.12 on mac which uses the Carbon GUI until wxcocoa works with the calendar widget.
You can however force the logbook to use the wxcocoa by editing the logbook-mac, logviewer-mac and settings-mac files and comment out
my $wxversion = "mac_2_8_12";
and then uncomment
my $wxversion = "osx_cocoa_2_9_3";
Enjoy the sneakpeek screenshots below!
NOTE: the carbon gui and cocoa gui requires their own separate modules, you can have both installed at once though! But giving you all a heads up because the carbon and cocoa modules are 50mb - 100mb (depending if i decide to strip the modules for uneccesary files or not which can be tedious)
PS: Due to the requirement of perl mslb will be changed from "small" to "fast". QT is nice and all and i would really prefer to use that but its perl support is lacking (perlQT4 is not documented very well) and C++ is just a pain
It is late but i have now compiled the My Simple Logbook for use on android4.0 and above, this same version works on previous versions too!
The new version comes with compability with the new preset.conf in the upcoming version 2.8 on desktop, however the android version might not get the new features from 2.8
Version 2.7.4 uses Ministro II which is the new version of the QT libraries on android, so please uninstall the old version of Ministro to free up some space!
PS: I have not compiled this version for desktop systems because i am focusing on getting v2.8 ready, you can however compile v2.7.4 yourself without any issues :)
