BoincTasks JS on Mac ?
« on: March 28, 2021, 06:10:52 pm »
Hello

I can see there is a new version "BoincTasks Js runs native on Linux, Mac and Windows", JOY !! no more wine and all its blocking  and freezing ! (I've been using for many years on different macs)

But when I go to its download page it only mentions an ubuntu version (a .deb file) and a windows version (more recent !), nothing about any mac version ?

Thanks

I'm working on the MAC version, It's by far the most complicated one to setup, so it was the last on my list.

The app works, but the rest is what they call Hell. Many many hoops to jump.

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

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......

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 :) )
