Trying To Locates A Recent OBEX Zip File

Over the last week, someone posted a link to a complete OBEX ZIP file. I should have bookmarked it, but I got distracted. Anyone know of which I speak?

  • I most surely do. You speak of this job, which runs each week and builds a ZIP of the entire OBEX: http://david.zemon.name:8111/viewType.html?buildTypeId=ObexDownloader_Download&guest=1

    Very Cool!

  • Thanks David. I thought it was you, just couldn't remember the name of the download file. My only complaint with the current OBEX is that the author's name no longer appears. I used to use the name to search files.

    Why on earth did Parallax remove authors' names? Did somebody seriously think authors no longer wanted to be credited?
    Re-inventing the wheel is not a waste of time if, when you are done, you understand why it is round.

    I have an email going to Parallax to ask that they include the author's name.

    Yep... Someone screwed up. I cannot imagine Parallax wanting that.

  • Authors now appear in the OBEX. The info was still there to resurrect.

    I downloaded complete_obex-2019-01-20.zip. My WinZip cannot open it.
    I attached a copy of the error message.
  • I was able to unzip the file without errors. Windows 7 Pro, native unzip.

    That's very interesting. Were you able to extract the contents and just not that one file? Or were you not able to access anything?

    Right now, the process just zips up the whole folder, but if I really need to I can walk through each file in the folder and rename anything with a colon (I'm guessing that's the problem) prior to adding it to the archive.

  • Just UnZipped to a different computer, and all was fine. Again Win7Pro. @DaveJensen, just try another download, it seems intact.

    @ DavidZemon. I would like to see the next ZIP file as Parallax has reinstituted the authors in the OBEX.

  • I've triggered another build... If the HTML page changed, the script may need updates. We'll see soon enough

  • Thanks David! Much appreciated.

  • I pushed an update to the script that uses less parallelism. This resulted in a completely error-free run and a zip file that is 109 MB instead of 107 MB. Now it is the "complete" obex :)

    This is great!

    UnZips perfectly. Is it possible in the future to have author names listed next to the programs?

    Are you thinking in the folder name? Such as changing "1-wire Routines" to "1-wire Routines - Joe Schmoe"? Or maybe a text file inside the directory, named "author" or "author.txt" with the author's name as shown in the obex? Seems like if you have to open a file, you might as well look at the source code. But adding anything else onto the folder names may start getting a might excessive. Find for "1-wire Routines" but imagine adding a name to what is already crazy long: "Driver for AMD Am9511A Arithmetic processor (vintage 8-bit floating point coprocessor)" or "I2C PASM driver, I2C SPIN driver, I2C slave driver (PASM), lots of demos."

    I'm open to ideas... not sure I like either of the above ideas, but they're the ones that popped into my head first.

    I could also create a new directory level:
    Root
     - Joe Schmoe
        - 1-wire Routines
        - 2-wire Routines
    - Joanne Doe
        - 3-wire Routines
        - 4-wire Routines
    

    But that limits your ability to find objects if you don't know the author already. But maybe you do already know the author? It is only intended to be a backup, which means you probably know what you're looking for if you're using this?

    No, please not use the author first, renaming the directory and adding the author is way better

    Because if I need to look for 1-wire I certainly would prefer something made by @JonnyMac :smile: , but he can't do all of it and sometimes there are gems where I still do not know the name of the author, like JDserial for example.

    Since the object title shows the title the author did chose it makes the most sense to use that first.

    Enjoy!

    David,
    What you have now is great. Don't change anything. A person can go to OBEX and sort by author name now that the author column has been put back in place.

    Thanks for all your work!
