HeidiSQL 3.2 Development Test 2

Application: HeidiSQL
Category: Development
Description: HeidiSQL is an easy-to-use interface and a "working-horse" for web-developers using the popular MySQL-Database. It allows you to manage and browse your databases and tables from an intuitive Windows® interface.

(MD5: c048d2c33cb8979a13667a365ca70460)

Release Notes:

Development Test 2 (2008-03-23):

  • fixed add copyright of myself to NSI files
  • added readme.txt into source directory
  • AppInfo.ini "Anse" --> "HeidiSQL Team" since it's a multi-developer project
  • Appicon.ico : from 24bits only --> 32bit and 8bit formats only
  • changed AppSource.txt to refer to help.html
  • changed tagline and support stuff in help.html

Development Test 1 (2008-03-22):

  • Initial Release
  • Packed with UPX nrv2e
  • Supports backing up of settings if HeidiSQL is already installed locally
  • Supports multiple launches
  • Default .SQL snippets that come with HeidiSQL installation are part of DefaultData and created on first launch if not exist in data directory
  • For Snippets support, program requires Power User privileges because it writes to ALL USERS's Application Data folder. I checked the code, and it's not an environment variable call, but an API call to get shell folder, which I don't know howto intercept from the NSI (if even possible)

Self-blurb: This is my first foray into creating a PortableApp that conforms to the PortableApps.com format. Having no experience in NSIS scripts, I'd say this took a lot longer than I thought.

I have tried to get it as perfect as possible in this first devtest build. I've read a lot of posts by John, Patrick, Ryan, and other moderators and testers about what is needed.

But, since this is still my first PortableApp, please post all the comments about the nsi script or anything else for that matter Smile

Ryan has offerred to host the setup files! Yipee! Currently using rapidhsare as we work out the kinks

Thanks!

On another note...

Taking a look at it, I noticed these:

  • You don't have yourself credited in the source! Add ;Copyright (C) 2008 sylikc underneath John's copyright up the top. Might be better to use your real name.
  • Missing readme.txt in the Source directory (I think we still have those)

The rest all looks good! Great job.

no new versions

Lol, I don't know what to do with this since there hasn't been any new versions. Maybe I should post on the pre-release list.

Nice!

Job well done trying yo find all the format specifications and using the posting format etc, as spewed around the forums as they are. There are, as there always are even for my apps those small things everyone missed a few of. Smile

  • In the AppInfo.ini, just write HeidiSQL Team & PortableApps.com cause it looks there's a fair amount of developers.
  • In the AppInfo.ini, the package version should actually be 3.2.0.0.
  • The appicon.ico should actually include the current formats you have (48, 32 and 16) in only 32 and 8 bit formats.
  • We'll be hosting the source once this goes here, so at some point change the AppSource.txt to:

    The source code for the base application in this package is available from the portable applications home page mentioned in the help.html file.
    
  • You're missing App\Readme.txt, and Other\Source\Readme.txt, copy and modify those from other apps. And when you do, make sure Other\Source\Readme.txt only shows the first directory setup apposed to multiple, and remove any version number from the first line if it exists.
  • Yea, as Ryan mentioned, add your copyright in the Source, and change the website at the top.
  • The VER entry is actually for the version of the launcher, which is like currently at 1.5.6.0.
  • I believe we're removing (Our Name) from beside PortableApps.com as the CompanyName.
  • Change the 100 on line 179 to 0 as we're dropping splash fades.
  • This one's ridiculous, but I'm not big on capitalizing the first letter of the help file tag line. Smile And in that help.html file, I'd say link HeidiSQL to its home page.
  • As for HeidiSQL Portable-Specific Issues, look at something like Task Coach Portable which lists just the standard app help topics.

That's all. It may look like a lot, but I'm just ridiculously picky. Thanks again for using the post format and finding any specifications you could, and good app choice!

Also, names should be left in the CompanyName.

Thanks a bunch, to both of you. Boy you guys are really hawks!!! Blum

Ryan,
Thanks for offering to host my PortableApp. Unfortunately, I tried posting to your contact form and got some 405 Method Not Allowed message:

The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /blog/wp-content/cache/supercache/cubegames.net/blog/contact/index.html.gz.

Patrick what do you mean by...

  • make sure Other\Source\Readme.txt only shows the first directory setup apposed to multiple
  • And in that help.html file, I'd say link HeidiSQL to its home page.

which link exactly, there's one for "Learn more about HeidiSQL..."

I'm working on rolling the changes into DevTest2

Dang... PortableApps development's actually a lot of work Biggrin
Now I really appreciate how john cranked out the first series of apps so quickly!

I Mean

Some of the Other\Source\Readme.txt's show outdated setups under INSTALLATION \ DIRECTORY STRUCTURE, make sure it shows only one. (the first one if there's multiple). Don't worry about the second thing I said, I was tired. Smile

So when do Dev-Test become Betas?

So... just wondering,

When do Dev-Test releases become betas?
When do Betas become Pre-Releases?

It's great that HeidiSQL doesn't have weekly releases that I'd have to update to, but it also means that this thread is sinking to the bottom of the abyss. ::roll::

Dunno

They just kinda go from Development Test to Pre-Release when John feels they're ready and has time.

HiediSQL Rocks...

If things keep up the way they are going, I might not need carry a laptop with me wherever I go...

It'll be plug n play with the USB...

Thanks Guy (or) Gurl for packaging this...

Guy it is. Anyway, your welcome. I use this almost daily for both work and school. Any other useful OSS IT tools you want to see packaged that aren't already done here?

unfortunate

Martin,

It is unfortunate that the tool isn't freeware, much less OSS. I'd have to check it out though, see what else it has to offer

any issues, comments?

I couldn't find the thread that talked about turning into Pre-Release status, but if there aren't any issues, is this ready for Pre-Release?

Anyone wanna play around with it

I'm thinking of packaging the 4.0 RC one later. But since it's in RC, it can't go official ...

But anyone been playing around with this? MySQL fans?

Just found this

Just EXACTLY what I needed, when I needed it. Great work!

Um, but as an end user, not a programmer of any ability, I am poised to wonder; Why is this pre-release? Installed and worked 100%, does not have any typical goofyness that I was expecting of a pre-release. I have had zero problems so far.

Settings file

Sorry to ask a really basic question. I've got an existing HeidiSQL install and have exported the settings. Can I just rename the .reg file and drop it in the Data/settings folder? I did try to do an import, but got freaked out by the Registry Editor window asking whether I wanted to add information to the registry. I'm guessing it would not have actually affected the registry, just the Data/settings file, but lost my nerve. Many thanks.

Any advice on the above? Where's everyone gone?
