What are you working on?

Post by AndyP » Tue Dec 04, 2018 10:35 am

I'm a regular follower of https://www.indiehackers.com, and they have this section What are you working on? which I always find interesting. This is a place where people show what they are doing at the moment, and I thought it might be interesting to start a similar thread here.

So I'll kick off.

I'm well into a new complete version of Seth V3 which will sort the problems some are experiencing with some version of LC8 and LC9. This is long overdue and will be a free update to all users.

Just started an Android app to access the self-hosted KanBoard project.

Updating an app I built for one of my sons to help with his Latin (yikes!) vocabulary.

At this point, nothing nearly so interesting. Mostly clearing out an estate and learning some new 3d modeling techniques.

Good luck with the citizenship!

I am working an a stack (application) to enable me to build multi language applications in LiveCode without having to write much code for this. This Stack also makes it possible to have translators work on the translation separately.

Need this for a call registration and support application I am building.

Thats all folks... 8)

Three large projects I can't talk about due to NDA, except to say that one is university courseware, another is a game port, and the third is a hospital equipment tracking system. Aside from those, I just finished some updates to a pet boarding facility's software. I also make ongoing adjustments to my personal password manager.

I work :

-app on a barcode reader android terminal to do reception (of goods) linked to Odoo (version 10) and linked to a windows desktop app (to validate the receptions and print labels on Dymo printers)

With the Android app, the operator "counts", can compare with the quantities ordered, and scan the supplier barcodes (of their batch numbers) and decides the location to store the goods (short list based on locations previously used)... all those data are stored on a mysql DB... and then with the Window app, he can call back those data (by scanning the reception note with a barcode), make some modifications, and validate (direct link to Odoo, to validate the reception and before that to create the batch numbers).

-update of an app on a barcode reader android terminal to do end-of-the-year inventories (linked to Odoo as well)

.... and a truck load of other stuff, most of them linked to Odoo too.
:D

Interesting Bankok... that you are building a barcode reader for android . So how do you make the reader? There is no LiveCode barcode reader for Android available even though I requested one almost two years ago :lol:

First : use a dedicated terminal (android "smartphone" with a barcode reader, integrated)

This one is a perfect beast :

Second : nothing fancy. Since LiveCode doesn't seem to be interested by this HUGE market (our lives... are "barcoded" now)... by developping some externals that could "catch" on the fly the data scanned (using the APIs of the big players, see bellow)... I just use a simple livecode field... in which the data scanned... are simply "typed".

All android barcode scanners... emulates the virtual keyboard.

After the scan, inside the LC field, the script catches a special character (like CR) and executes some actions. Voilà. It works.
But it could be improved (the focus needs to be in the field...)

ZEBRA, large company, has very good terminals as well : for instance TC20.
Very nice, and well priced.

And a trully magnificient API ("Datawedge").

I asked Livecode to at least look at it... No answer.

I rephrase : Livecode + Android barcode scanners = killer apps.

But this is another debate, right ?

1. Teaching English as foreign language.

2. Meditating on the Bengali writing system.

3. Wondering whether I can get off my fat, lazy behind enough to work out a one-year
school curriculum for LiveCode based on English and Scottish education department requirements.

I Agree Bangkok... LiveCode should bring out a BarCode Scanning functionality for Android as soon as possible.
I have several use cases I need barcodescanning on mobile phones for. I also decided not to make an application in LiveCode just for the fact that LiveCode does not have a good working barcode Functionality that works on all the mayor platforms :( .

We will see if what the future brings... :roll:
