ticalc.org "Package Manager"
« on: November 24, 2010, 09:04:44 pm »
This project is my longstanding attempt to create a command line utility and Python library for accessing, searching, and downloading projects from ticalc.org (and other sites).

Current version is 1.1; 2.0 has been in development for a while but is hopefully nearing a release with possible support for downloading programs from Cemetech and Omnimaga as well.

Development is generally happening at github- you can clone a snapshot from there. Or, you can download the latest version from ticalc.org for Windows or Linux. (Downloads are also hosted on Cemetech for Windows and Linux). Once it's downloaded, extract the archive and run "python setup.py install". Note that if you're on Linux, this command will probably require root access (su or sudo); no matter what platform you are on you will need Python 2.x to run it.

After installing it, you can run it on the command line using:

python calcpkg.py [command] [filename]

Note that if you're on Linux and using 2.0 or higher (or the 2.0 snapshots from github), you should instead be using:
calcpkg [command] [filename]

The first command you run should run is "update"- this will create a local copy of the master.index file from ticalc.org that calcpkg knows how to use for searching and so on. Then you can run "calcpkg search" and "calcpkg install", which will list and download programs. For a full list of all possible options, run "calcpkg -h" (or possibly refer to the README).

Here is a rather old screenshot:

Sweet! Can't wait to play around with this!

EDIT: Err, when I try to run this on my linux partition, it fails on all version of python I have installed (python, python2, python2.7, python3, python3.1)

Nice, will this work on Windows 7 x64?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I'm guessing that if you can get the right version of Python installed that it should work

Ah ok, I was wondering because I often have troubles running command prompt stuff. Often I get missing DLL errors.

It will work on x64- I coded it on Windows 7 x64. And it doesn't require any other Python libraries.

Eeems:

Hrm, not sure why. Does it give Python exceptions?

If it does, can you post them?

I haven't had a chance to run it on my Fedora partition. On Windows 7, I have a Python 2.6.6 installation, where it works fine. I'm booting into Fedora now to find out, though.

EDIT: Booted into Fedora; it works fine. Try this command:

python calcpkg.py get "Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator"

That should download all 12 WFRNGs from ticalc.org. Please post whatever it outputs.

Ah good to hear it will work on 7. I should try this and install python when I get some time. :)

I worry about what will happen if I type quadratic solver, though... I'll get about half of the quadratic solvers on ticalc.org (the other half not being spelled correctly)

If there was a ticalc.org repository set up in the same way as, say, a Linux repository, it would be much easier. I'm forced to use "Search" to get files.

All I'll say is: there's a reason "get" prompts you before it downloads something...

Also, you can use CTRL + C to interrupt the current process.

That was a parody of all quadratic solvers on ticalc.org. Back then they even stopped allowing them in, but they allowed that one (quite ironically, it was the 100th one uploaded as well). There was a fake news on Omni about it and a fake forum called Quadratic Solvers Liberation Front was started. ;D

It was kinda like a sequel to my grayscale number guessing game, except the quadratic solver was made by Radical Pi (AKA Nyrax). :P

Update!

I've completely changed the way this works.

Instead of searching ticalc.org using the websearch, it uses cached package lists (files.index and names.index). These cached files (which are why the download is larger) simply contain parsed forms of the master.index (each line of files.index has a path/filename on ticalc.org, each line of names.index has the name corresponding with the file on the same line in files.index). This means that for searches and counts (I added a "count" command), the script doesn't need the Internet. Searches are now pretty fast.

To download, obviously you need the Internet, but the script can pull the cached paths out of files.index, so no searching is involved.

Then, when you want to update the index files, you use the new "update" command- which parses master.index and recreates the names.index and files.index files. It will take some time to run, though.

The index files must be in the same directory as the script when you run it.

Also, I've uploaded this version to the Cemetech and ticalc.org archives (Omni doesn't have a folder for comp utilities).

Odd.

I tried running this on my Fedora partition. At first, the output from running "calcpkg.py list" was screwy, but it still worked (it was still able to download packages fine when I ran "calcpkg.py get").

Then I ran an update to rewrite the package index files and the output looked normal.

So all I can say is, run a "calcpkg.py update" before anything else when trying it on Linux.

I like the update, hopefully this should put less load on the server. Also I saw this was uploaded and approved on ticalc.org so I guess they're now fine. I guess it's because they're on a better server now.
