[ANN] tinyDictionary

BNig
I uploaded a compact version of the dictionaries for LC 8.1 and up to Livecodeshare

http://livecodeshare.runrev.com/stack/825/tinyDictionary_0_7_7_7

this is also accessible via "Sample Stacks" from inside LC.

it is the result of Mike Kerners push to have a small footprint dictionary.

James Hale contributed to tinyDict, thanks James.

Comments bug reports either on the use-list or in the forum

or mail me.

Kind regards

Outstanding!  Much better than the built-in webpage-like dictionary.  Great
job!

Re: [ANN] tinyDictionary

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
This is awesome!  Quick question (feature request) would it be difficult to
add a dictionary selector?  So if I have 13 versions of lc installed, I
could pick which dict to look at? (and make it work as a standalone at the
same time?)

If you use tinyDictionary as a plugin then it gathers the current dictionary of the LC version you use. But it only works for Livecode 8.1 and up because it leverages the good work of the Livecode people in "revIDEDocumentationLibrary". It pulls the whole array and dissects it. Of course you can have more than one LC version open and access tinyDict via the plugins menu in each of these. It would always be the current dictionary of that version.

If you have a special use case for standalones please email me so I understand better what you would like to do.

Kind regards
Bernd

Re: [ANN] tinyDictionary

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Mainly I was thinking it would be cool to have a standalone that doesn't
need the ide to be open. Choose the folder with the version you want to
look at, perhaps even load a second standalone and point to a different
folder for a compare and contrast. (Not sure if it would work, but I
noticed in the code that a message is sent to rev stack to do the hard
work.. Could a message like this be sent to a stack that hasn't been opened
yet in the chosen folder, without all the other ide stuff running?  Think
I'll poke around and try.  )

No worry about this though, because as you say.. I can just open whatever
versions I wish and access the plugin from them.

  Mark Wieder
Hi Mark,

tinyDictionary tries on preopenCard -> loadPreferences to find via
 put specialFolderPath("support") into tFolderSupport
an "application support" folder and there a "LcTinyDict" folder where it tries to create a txt file "tinyPrefs.txt"

This is in the card script.

If it can not create the folder then the alert appears. I don't know anything about Linux and where that folder might be. Or may be it is a permission thing?

TinyDict saves on "closeCard" to the preference file the current state to be able to restore the state on next start. It does not save itself, hence the prefs file.

Kind regards
Bernd

Ah.
The good folks at LC haven't found it neccesary to allow more than a
handful of folderIdentifiers for linux. And in spite of what the
documentation says, the result is *not* set to "folder not found" when a
non-supported or nonexistent folderIdentifier is specified - it's just
empty, which is somewhat less useful.

I default saving preferences files to the directory where the saving
stack lives, and normally that's my user Plugins folder, and I use the
undocumented (http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16189)
revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath() function to get those.

Thanks Bob,

I think the LiveCode people did a pretty good job reorganizing the dictionary. The new dictionary, once getting used to it, offers the different dictionaries in a structured way.

It takes just a lot of screen estate if you don't use a 28 inch monitor.

The scope of tinyDictionary is different: a bare bone dictionary for developers who know what they are looking for.

So I will not submit this to Edinburgh.

I wrote tinyDictionary also because we had quite some suggestions for community projects that did not materialize. I wanted to give it a try and see how far I would get. There was helpful input from the community, not all of it made it into tinyDict.

The Livecode Dictionary has other problems: more than 3000 files that need some attention/correction/reformatting. Luckily not all of them but there are enough. If you find some funny stuff in tinyDictionary please check against the LiveCode dictionary whether it also looks funny there. Then you have a good chance to look at an entry that needs care.

Devin Asay is doing a tremendous job at correcting the dictionary.
This could really be something where other native speakers of the community could help. It is tedious, you have to learn the format and you have to get familiar with GitHub. But even GitHub is doable :)


>> I want this to be my official dictionary.

That is very easy, just rename the stack to myTinyOfficialDictionary :)


I will upload new versions to Livecodeshare as needed. This should get you there

Re: [ANN] tinyDictionary

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
The other issues with the existing official dictionary involve the
bootstrap framework, and those are not easy to address without ripping out
bootstrap.  While we are on the topic of a large monitor, that does not fix
the issues.  Indeed, on a larger monitor, the dictionary will get worse,
due to bootstrap's 7-column setup.  The bezels get to be gigantic except
within very narrow ranges.  You can do what you want, Bernd, but this is a
far better dictionary than what is packaged with LC, and certainly better
than I could have built if I had continued on what started as my quest to
submit a pull request to replace the existing dictionary, so I hope you
change your mind.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."

my official dictionary.

Thanks Bob,

I think the LiveCode people did a pretty good job reorganizing the
dictionary. The new dictionary, once getting used to it, offers the
different dictionaries in a structured way.

It takes just a lot of screen estate if you don't use a 28 inch monitor.

The scope of tinyDictionary is different: a bare bone dictionary for
developers who know what they are looking for.

So I will not submit this to Edinburgh.

I wrote tinyDictionary also because we had quite some suggestions for
community projects that did not materialize. I wanted to give it a try and
see how far I would get. There was helpful input from the community, not all
of it made it into tinyDict.

The Livecode Dictionary has other problems: more than 3000 files that need
some attention/correction/reformatting. Luckily not all of them but there
are enough. If you find some funny stuff in tinyDictionary please check
against the LiveCode dictionary whether it also looks funny there. Then you
have a good chance to look at an entry that needs care.

Devin Asay is doing a tremendous job at correcting the dictionary.
This could really be something where other native speakers of the community
could help. It is tedious, you have to learn the format and you have to get
familiar with GitHub. But even GitHub is doable :)

Bernd, thanks for your work on this, and for your kind words. If anyone finds anything in the Dictionary that doesn’t look right, or read right, or just seems inaccurate, please do submit a bug report. They are usually simple and quick to fix. I’d also welcome anyone who wants to try their hand at joining the open source effort by submitting dictionary fixes. I have created some step-by-step guides to help you and would be happy to get you started.

Plus if you get a dictionary change accepted you get to see your name in This Week in LiveCode<https://livecode.github.io/this-week-in-livecode/>! :)

Sorry Bob,

I fell foul of Nabble, it is unfortunately broken since the bouncing issue was resolved.

Since I am on digest for the use-list I use Nabble to post and see current activity.

Too bad it is broken since the only other repository that lets you post I know is gmane that is rebuilding and has not added Livecode yet.

Kind regards
Bernd
