0.1.3 README

Hello again,

This is the last experimental version of Log before 1.0 is released. I have rewritten major portions of the Log system. Your logs and configurations are now stored together in a JSON format. Unfortunately this means that your old log.js data will not work anymore as of 0.1.3. But worry not; your data can still be saved. Do not use the old import command.

First I must apologise for the work I am about to put you through, especially if you have a lot of entries already. I couldn't come up with a way to import and convert the old log format into the new one. Sorry :(

  1. You will need to open your existing log.js file, which is found in the data folder within the application folder.
  2. Next you will need to make a JSON file. You can name it however you wish, but its contents should match this: https://github.com/joshavanier/log/blob/master/user.json
  3. In your log.js file, copy everything between the square brackets (that would be everything between the first and last lines of the file, if you didn't tinker with the formatting). You will want to move all of these entries into your JSON file in the designated "log" place.
  4. Use your text editor's search-and-replace function to add quotation marks to your entries as required by JSON: https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/

Your entries look something like this:
{s:"59ca2198",e:"59ca2272",c:"Code",t:"Log",d:"Creating a new system"}

Your entries will need to look like this:
{"s":"59ca2198","e":"59ca2272","c":"Code","t":"Log","d":"Creating a new system"}

Once you're done, save the file somewhere, open up Log 0.1.3, and run "import /home/location/yourfile.json". Use absolute file paths, not relative.

0.3.1 Changes

  • Colour coding has finally arrived. You can now set colour codes for your sectors. For instance, you can set School to be yellow, Music to be blue, etc.
  • Your data is now stored using localStorage. Things should run more smoothly now.
  • Your data can be imported and exported as JSON files. Do this often for backup :)
  • As always, minor changes in the UI

Thank you for your patience. Feel free to contact me if you have any issues.
