Forum OpenACS Q&A: New OpenACS Repository Browser
There is a new cvs repository browser for OpenACS at:
We are testing it to decide whether we keep it or not available for the community.
Any comments or suggestions are very welcomed!
While we like the answer, I'm still wondering if it's open source?
i find the fisheye access very helpful, especially for determining what's under active development and what's not. i think fisheye will allow me to refine my forum searches. but i'm always looking for authoritative summaries indicating current state of the code. fisheye seems to omit that meta-metadata unless i've overlooked it. the terrific new wiki may fill that need.
I was wondering if there is a way to configure it (i'm assuming there is) to by default hide deleted files and empty folders and only show them if the users clicks on the link to show them on the top right of the files and/or folder listing... Like the way attic works on the current cvs browser. I was confused because I looked at my packages and saw a bunch of files I deleted and I think it would be clearer to hide them be default and show them if you click...
I like and default to open software my self, but free is good enough for me if its this much better than the current open cvs browser.
Jeff's browser has package specific RSS feeds as well, it works pretty much the same way, you can specify whatever criteria you want, and get a feed from any page you are looking it.
Fisheye has the nice graphs. So far I like the viewcvs diffs better myself, I like the side-by-side view, but obviously that is an opinion.
Its interesting that Jeff's browser has almost all the same features. I wonder if anyone would be interested to add graphs with the graph package Nima contributed to OpenACS.
