Themis devel looks for help

Hey peeps. Just wanted to point out a very interesting project called Themis. This project aims to create a new, modern, effective, fast BeOS native browser. This could be very interesting for the various Save BeOS projects, and could lead to something along the lines of konqueror for OBOS or B.E.OS. etc.

To get to the point, the head of the project, Raymond C. Rogers, needs help. Lots of people have already contributed, but the project needs more ideas, and most importantly, more brains to help out with it. So, if you aren’t doing anything for the next year or two, and feel like pitching in, get in touch with him! Net+ is great, but dead and decaying. Help make Themis even better, and growing!

    I got an error trying to go to the link but this one worked:

    Re: Link

    What error did you get ? A mysql error ?
    I get them lately as well when testing Themis on that page.
    I don’t know what’s causing it, as with another browser it works fine.

    If anyone wants to check out how far we are it is best to get the latest source from cvs.
    The DOM Load Test that is available is fairly old and only a part of Themis.

    I got:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: my_sql_free_result() in /home/groups/t/th/themis/htdocs/index.php on line 56

    That’s what it showed in Mozilla and also here at work from IE. So it’s not just Themis.

    That’s the same one I get in Themis. Opera works fine, though. Really weird.

    Re: Link

    Yeah, because he uses this function:
    my_sql_free_result()
    while he should have called the
    mysql_free_result()

    Who is Raymond you ask?

    He is a fabulous guy who used to work at Be.

    I would heartly recommend this project to everyone. With someone like Raymond in charge of it, I would think that it’s more likely to actually take off.

    I’ll look into that… This happened before, and I believe it was a problem with SourceForge’s mysql configuration.

    Re: Link

    Fixed… It was a typo in a few files, but I didn’t actually see the error message myself. (I tried with Mozilla 1.1 and IE 6 on Windows, NetPositive and Opera on BeOS.)

    Any ways, thanks for the catch! :)

    Alan is probably busy… :) He’s always had lots of side projects to work on, and probably more than a few extra tasks at work.

    Check you index

    If you tested Themis, check you index!

    $ lsindex

    It adds about 10 indecies to your system! Without asking!

    And, actually, until I removed them all, queries on my machine became “flaky”. i.e. a new mail query would never return *any* results.

    But, then again, this is beta software, and should be treated as such. Just wanted to let others know.

    Re: Check you index

    Hey Arougthopher,
    indices aren’t a big deal in BeOS, that’s why so many programs use them. Themis isn’t the first program to create them without asking. Look at Mail-it for instance. But that’s not the issue I’m writing about here. The indices that and queries that are in Themis have been more or less unchanged for about seven months. I’ve tested them personally on a lot of hardware and system configurations.

    While this is the first I’ve heard of problems involving the indexes that Themis creates, I’d be more than happy to try to find out what is/was happening on your system, and resolve the issue.

    Themis creates its own indices and does not touch anything having to do with mail. Nor does it reassign any existing mime types to point to it. I purposely wrote the index creation and query system to be as inobtrusive as possible. The only exceptions to this rule are the fact that it adds and uses its own indexes and mime types for cache files. There is nothing sinister at work here. The code that creates the indexes and mime types can be found at (Themis Root Directory)/modules/cache/cacheman.cpp in functions CheckMIME() and CheckIndices(). The queries are performed in the MessageReceived() as ugly as it is.

    Themis is in fact pre-alpha at this point, not beta. That is part of the reason that I am seeking developers. There are many bugs, and while I probably created them all, I could definitely use a few hands in finding them, devising solutions, and eliminating them.

    Re: Check you index

    Hi Raymond,
    I think I may have come off sounding a bit harsh, sorry. I was having problems doing *any* type of query on my system, which lead me to start looking at the indecies. This is why I noticed the Themis:* entries in the index. I know it should not be a big deal. And, the fact that I removed the Themis:* indecies, and my queries started to work, does not mean it was the fault of Themis. It probably was not. Just a coincidence, more than likely.

    I wish I had time to help with the project, but, I am currently involved in about 5 other projects, besides work!

    Variety is the spice of life.

    Using moz now, but I’d love a simple, fast, native browser built for BeOS (like a more compatible net ).

    I might even help when I get a bit better at this C lark.

    Simon.

    Re: Link

    Eh, don’t worry about that. :) Your concerns are legitimate, and if there’s a problem with the indexes and/or queries, it needs to be fixed. I’ve been considering a [disk] cache rewrite anyway, as we’ll be adding a memory/RAM cache at some point as well.

    Well, why not port the Gecko part, the html rendering component, and put BeOS stuff all around it. That idea is like the chimera project - Gecko wrapped in cocoa.
