Project management, Phlamey style!

Project management? Automated packaging and uploading? These two sound more interesting than the more general description of "stuff". :)

Obviously, I also immediately think of RiscPKG and wonder if what you've done/are doing can be beneficial to that in any way?

I'd forgotten that even existed :blush:

But yeah, I think it could quite easily compliment RiscPKG.

The basic operation of my management thingy is as follows:
* Examine a project to see if it's changed. If it's not changed, do nothing, else...
* Package it
* Upload it to your website
* Perform any other post-release events - update web pages with release notes, update link repositories, etc.

The entire system will be very flexible and user-expandable, so (with the right plugin) you can make it do practically whatever you want.

I'm trying to write the basic framework using Obey files, with data about the current project stored in system variables. This means that different scripts to examine projects, package/upload, etc. can be written in practically any language you want, which is where all the flexibility will come from. There are likely to be some error handling issues resulting from using Obey files so much, but the development time for getting a working system is a lot shorter. I can always migrate the core to another language if Obey files become a real problem.

I suppose describing it as project management was a bit inappropriate, but it will greatly simplify the task of packaging, uploading and publishing your work.

Note: This may be delayed a bit as I am now installing Hitman: Blood Money :drool:

But in a related note, it appears you can get Hitman for your mobile as a 2D isometric game. I've no ideea how well the gameplay translates, but if such a game were to be written for RISC OS.... :o

Yay! it works (The project thingy, not the hitman clone :P)

At the moment it will identify if a project has changed, copy the right files, and update the status file. It would also create the zip file, but the only command line zip tools I have at my disposal appear to be completely retarded and don't allow me to use wildcards or zip a folder.

It does work properly!

Intel's motherboard manufacturing department, on the other hand, does not.

I've used that in the past with mixed success for downloading stuff onto the PC. However last night when I tried it with FTPc it didn't want to work :( I'll give it another poke, since the website claims it does work.

Well, I guess that isn't possible, then.

Bah! Now NFS is broken.

Current status is that it can detect when a project has changed, package it, 'upload' it via NFS to the PC, and copy the archive to the right place in the development copy of my website. But my plan of uploading by executing commands over telnet is failing because the windows FTP client doesn't like the telnet server I'm using :cry:

[edit]

I guess I'll shift some of the burden onto Apache.

*shinies up some more stuff*

Hmm, having three upload scripts is a bit ugly. What I need to do is rewrite the BASIC script (that generates the telnet script) to also generate the PHP script that the telnet script calls (OK, I could call it directly, but copying the files around on the PC using telnet is quicker than NFS).

AND I shall make it a bi-quine, because I'm in one of those moods.

Plus, a project management system which actively uses bi-quines is clearly the best system in the world.

(I could also make the telnet script generate the PHP script, but that would be counter productive as my quick hack of a telnet script executor only sends the next line two seconds after the last data was received from the server)

[edit]

Actually I can't be bothered making the bi-quine. Maybe tomorrow :P

Bah! I still can't use FTPc for it, because it doesn't like the fact my program runs from a task window :(

And it still doesn't work if I don't use a task window!
