Questions / Re: BoincTasks JS on Mac ?
« Last post by JeromeC on Today at 03:00:51 pm »
The fact that you remember about this test now does mean you are going to handle, or I need to report it on github ?

(I know about GitHub but I have never "used" it and am not familiar with how to really use it - apart from downloading stuff - but if needed I'm willing to learn :) )

Wish List / Re: Add REC to available columns in Projects & tasks tabs

Thanks Fred
On Win10Home here, and the first couple of attempts to get round the non-signed app didn't work (failed in the DISM part), so haven't got the .js running yet, I'll keep working on that. For the meantime still on 1.85
You can change the extension appx -> zip, unzip the file and run the exe inside app.

Cool :)

But this 1.12 is not released yet, right ? (still 1.11 on the download page)

Will you add a "new version" feature to inform / propose upgrade ?

I've been using it since more than 3 days now and I'm very happy with it. Obviously we miss many features of the "full version" of BT which is SO complete, with so many parameters, especially the possibility to filter by project in the history (the task history is one of the main feature that made me use BT under wine for so many years, despite of a very relative stability, force to regularly kill / restart because of various bugs / freezes). But then I realized I can sort by clicking on (some) of the column titles, so I could find what I was looking for :)

Talking about bugs I think I found one :



I tried to right-clic the project column (trying to find a filtering option) and I got this endless popup error, I had to force kill BT Js and restart it.

Also, if you plan translations for the tool and need any help, I can help you with French and Spanish, let me know.

Great tool in any case, looking forward for future versions !
Look here : https://forum.efmer.com/index.php?topic=1982.msg9073
And https://github.com/efmer/boinctasks-js
I'm working on 1.12 now.
The bug is a test that I forgot all about......

Thanks Fred
From my own investigations, REC for all projects goes down whenever the boinc client is running, at a rate defined by the global half life setting. Not actually sure what triggers it being recalculated, but appears to be at any job completion, and probably at other times too. I think this is the REC Time field. Suspending a project doesn't affect the recalculation. When a job runs it increase the REC for the project of the job in relation to the number of resources and how long it runs for.
The job scheduler appears to take a job from those already waiting from the project with the lowest (REC/Resource share) subject to other constraints (eg deadline, max concurrent etc)
I'm asking for this so I can make an estimate as to when the ready workunits  are going to get naturally processed (vs. getting scheduled due to approaching deadline) - the work fetch process is spectacularly poor when it comes to projects with substantially different resource shares (it fetches too much work for those with a small allocation)

On Win10Home here, and the first couple of attempts to get round the non-signed app didn't work (failed in the DISM part), so haven't got the .js running yet, I'll keep working on that. For the meantime still on 1.85

Questions / Re: BoincTasks-JS V1.10 Win 10 Pro

I have extracted the program as per the procedure mentioned by Bryn Mawr, and it starts up fine.

One problem I have noticed is, when I right-click on one of the column headers (Computer, Project, etc) I get an error window with the message: Handler for .contextmenu() called.
I can press OK or hit the top-right X mark, but the message keeps popping up.
The only way to terminate the program is through the Task-manager
OK a test leftover, press OK twice an it's gone.
What you are looking for is in View -> Change Column ....
To terminate the program Files->Exit.

A rename to .RAR and a manual extract to a new directory in C:\Program Files does, however, work.
Yep it should be able to run anywhere, next time I will make an installer build.

Great and that was before I started looking at improving speed in 1.12.

Thank you so much, I'll keep you posted in case of any trouble.

https://efmer.com/boinctasks-js/boinctasks-js-download/shows 1.11 with instructions to install, because BOINC itself isn't in the store they refuse to accept BoincTask Js, so sideloading is the only option.
With so many huge changes in version Properties stopped working and elapsed time ready to report, added to the list
If you find anything else let me know.

Even with sideloading enabled (which BTW, is now labelled "Install Apps from any source including loose files") it still errors out and refuses to load.

A rename to .RAR and a manual extract to a new directory in C:\Program Files does, however, work.
