Missing files? Thirty bees version 1.0.1-beta.2

  • Advanced Parameters->Configuration Information | LIST OF CHANGED FILES

    Missing files (4)


    Or not?

  • On an installation from the Git repository:

    $ ls classes/Discount.php classes/controller/AjaxController.php classes/controller/ModuleAjaxController.php classes/order/OrderDiscount.php
    ls: cannot access 'classes/Discount.php': No such file or directory
    ls: cannot access 'classes/controller/AjaxController.php': No such file or directory
    ls: cannot access 'classes/controller/ModuleAjaxController.php': No such file or directory
    ls: cannot access 'classes/order/OrderDiscount.php': No such file or directory

    Which means: these files aren’t expected to exist.

    Looking into the repo history one can find this: https://github.com/thirtybees/thirtybees/commit/0335d82603d48d0edd7ad149dbe729f6b69d005c These files were removed on March 12th. Apparently is was forgotten to update the list of expected files.

  • This is simple: config/json/files.json is out of date. 4 files no longer exist, 221 files have changed. Not exactly a trust building situation 🙂

  • The question arising is: when should this file receive updates?

    1. On every commit?
    2. On every bump of the release version?
    3. When creating a distribution package, creating this file on the fly?

  • News 🙂

    • files.json: while it’s tracked in the Git repo, it also gets updated when creating a package.
    • You, @atolodas , apparently run a development installation. Only four files missing. With an installation made from a package it’s much worse, 46 files missing 🙂
    • Wrote a PHP version of the file generator (currently used is a JavaScript variant) and it turns out, both generators generate the same (except for sorting).
    • Updating files.json in a developer installation gives a perfectly fine validation.

    So, what the heck?

    The hint for the next step in this adventure game is here: files.json generated in a developer installation is 387 lines. The one generated for a package is 1261 lines. These two versions are expected to be the same.

    Going bicycling now and when coming back I’ll put these puzzle pieces together.

  • I think this problem resolved

  • So I worked a full day for the trashcan. I thought it was clear that I’m working on this.

  • I created a generator using PHP, I also removed the file from the Git repo, I implemented nice messages for developers, where the file doesn’t exist.


    And of course I triple-check code before providing it to the public.

  • Will melt down this work to align with what’s now on master and pull request that tomorrow. Not everything lost 🙂

  • The six remaining commits were accepted and are now on Git master. Thanks, @mdekker.

  • Is this topic solved? Please mark it as solved then, @atolodas. It’s behind these three dots to the right of ‘reply’ and ‘quote’.

    P.S.: actually I was wrong about this three-dot hamburger menu. Marking topics as resolved is in ‘Topic Tools’, rightmost in the series of buttons at the bottom of the first post.

  • Sorry, but I don’t have permission to change Topic mark

  • This post is deleted!
