Re: RevZilla (2.5)

2018-03-26 Thread Brian Milby via use-livecode
If I tackle it, going through the vars is probably a good way to clean up
stuff no longer needed. At first I tried to define everything but gave up
and restarted with the setting turned off. I think I did at least get it to
authenticate but data had changed too much for anything to really work.

If the code is handy, it wouldn’t hurt, but not sure if I will have time
for this project.

Thanks,
Brian

It was developed without explicit variable checking so going there would be
fun. But it also has a bit of code supporting legacy Mac that wouldn’t be
needed.


I did that back in the day, but RunRev's use of bugzilla changed 
drastically at the point where RevZilla 2.5 stopped working. There are 
enough things hidden now from normal view that it would be a major task 
to redo it. I can dig through the archives and probably send you a 
version that is explicitVars-safe if that helps. It was fun while it lasted.

Most code in our community doesn't comply with the explicVars global 
prop, not even the IDE.


Thankfully the LC team's response was more accommodating than 
SuperCard's where that property premiered: the LC IDE's Script Editor 
now only uses that temporarily to check a script, but does not attempt 
to run with that property active.


If it's a problem with a stack just turn it off while you're working. 
Over time maybe more declarations can be added (though that is indeed 
tedious, which is why so many of us don't bother in a language that 
doesn't require declaration).

I'm guessing you're referring to this one, from Ken Ray:
http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/livecode/downloads/RevZilla2.htm

IIRC last time I spoke with Ken about that there were enough changes in 
BZ to make updating RevZilla an unattractive task.


It's old enough that I don't even think it has an explicit license, so 
it may not be clear to others how to proceed if they want to try to 
undertake that themselves.


I think he'd be quite supportive of having someone else update it. His 
email link is available on the last line of that page.

RevZilla (2.5)

2018-03-26 Thread Brian Milby via use-livecode
I found a stack that used to work to provide a LC interface to Bugzilla.  I
briefly tried to get it to work, but even after I could authenticate it
just didn’t work correctly.  Has anyone kept this tool up to date?

Thanks,
Brian

[ANN] RevZilla 2.5 Available For Download

2012-03-23 Thread Ken Ray
With the change in file format for 5.5 and the fact that RevZilla hadn't been 
touched in over two years, I thought it would be good to bring the program up 
to date. Version 2.5 has an updated interface using data grids, plus a better 
look and feel for Linux, plus a handful of bug fixes.

You can download it at:

http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/livecode/downloads/RevZilla2.htm

If you encounter any bugs or have any issues with the stack, please let me know…

Enjoy!

Yay! Thanks. It looks and works great! I'm running out of exclamation
points here, but I really can't say enough good things about RevZilla.
