Bug handling system?

l0b0
I'm sorry if this already exists, but I couldn't find it anywhere on
the web site or TODO file - It would be very nice to have a central
place to see the status of bugs and feature requests, instead of
having to browse the mail archives (it's not even searchable?).

As far as I am aware there is no bug tracker for OpenSCAD. However I
would like to
announce a new project that I am working on called RapCAD, you can read more
over at http:/www.rapcad.org  It will essentially be based on OpenSCAD
and hopefully
will be backwards compatible with scad files.

Anyway, I am interested to know what features people would like for
this software, so
Please feel free to log any bugs/features that you always wanted
implemented or fixed
in OpenSCAD in my RapCAD bug tracking system at http://bugs.rapcad.org

What a cool idea. I am up for following it. Happy to do testing too.

Something that is worth considering for much further down the road is a
G-Code layer by layer visualiser that highlights the relevant Gcode line
if you click on the track in the visualiser window.

I have been working on some thin wall stuff that RapMans cam layer seems
to get upset about and add in spurious tracks in funny places. Easiest
route at the moment is to edit them out. But without a realistic way to
identify anomalies and map them back to the G-code it is going to be
tedious in the extream,

I can view the slices in Rapman but there is no mapping back to the Gcode.

Cheers

Yeah thats a great idea I like it. There are lots of features that
could be done in a "debugger" area of the software
its something I hadn't even considered until now, so thanks.  There
isn't really any software to test at the moment, as
its still in the design phase, I thought I would give everyone a
chance to participate in the project even before
any substantial amount of code had been written. One thing you can
test though is the bugtracker installation
(mantis) is working properly by signing up for it and submitting your
g-code debugger idea as a feature request

Interesting idea, but couldn't this be implemented as a RepRap or
GCode mode in OpenSCAD? That would avoid fragmentation of both the
code base and the language, which would avoid a lot of duplicate work
for both you and Clifford Wolf.

Yup will do.

It might be worth considering a modular approach with stuf like that as
plugins. (or not ??)

I guess this would promote co-development.

You realy need a mailing list (or forum)......

Personally speaking I think Clifford has done a great job. It does need
to evolve and repair though.

Openscad potentially fits a very real need for the FDM & RepRap
community. It is'nt quite the perfect fit yet though and has a few
quirks that need work.

To do as you sugest there has to be perhaps a greater degree of
interaction with developing Openscad. I guess Clifford probably has
other priorities right now.

Yes in a ideal world we might have a libopenscad or something that
both projects could share.
However I have made the assumption that the devs of OpenSCAD are no
longer supporting it
since I haven't heard anything from them in a while. My apologies to
the Devs if this is not the
case, but I don't think there is any harm in having two
implementations at this stage.

Re: Bug handling system?

Whosawhatsis
It might be worth developing that way, though, so that openscad and other new projects can benefit from your developments that way in the future.

Yes I was thinking about this last night, is prehaps what you want
some kind of daemon that can always be running in the background and
you can just send it an scad file and it will return you a stl?

Thats one way of reducing the startup and shutdown time, and hopefully
will allow caching of objects from previous renderings.

Yeah that would probably be a good solution for CloudSCAD and I'm thinking it would be something that would be a lot easier to create if the OpenSCAD compiler logic was separated into a library.

It would also let me create a ruby gem which would make me all kinds of happy.
