eyeWeb

I decided to put all three options, frame, popup window or new tab, into the same app, and to call it eyeWeb. I almost have eyeWeb finished.  I just need to add one of those drop down menu item selectors to choose which of the three options to use, and the rest of the code is done already.  EyeWeb is the lite version with no permanent gui.  I should finish it tomorrow, after I have had time to look for the code I need.

The fully featured version will be called eyeSurf. EyeSurf is still just a barely working prototype. I will only offer the popup window and window tab options in eyeSurf.  So far there's almost no error handling, the settings routine is just a "spoof", and I either need to rip the toolbar from eyeNav or create a very similar one. Additionally, rather than go across the page, I'm thinking the toolbar should span top to bottom and open on the left side of screen in order to stay in sight when the popup window opens.  I'll get to it.  I am also rather desperate to get a gui for that phpOffice suite.  It feels like most of what I am doing now is trying to drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st century.  If you guys haven't seen the "competetion", you should look around.  We still have several advantages and are technically ahead, but in my experience, simply being the best doesn't beat slick advertising, a few whiz-bang (but basically useless) apps, and some uber fancy graphics tricks.

Re: eyeWeb

That reminded me, Symbiose has a very useful whizz-banger that I really really want.  They have tied together about a dozen cloud storage apps into one.  I am still trying to figure out how they did it.

I was wrong about Symbiose.  It's zeroPC that has many of the whiz-bang apps that I want.  I actually haven't seen any advantage to using Symbiose yet.  It looks like eyeOS1.6 and still rather primitive.

Re: eyeWeb

Shoot, just one more "little" problem.  It doesn't look like I can put the selection widget inside the textbox. Unless I'm wrong and someone can point out my error. It looks like I'll have to rewrite it as a regular window.  Blah.

Re: eyeWeb

Now, I'm not sure because I'm also seeing a couple other little problems which I didn't see at first. I'll get this tomorrow, hopefully.  One way or t'other. lol.

Dear Wolfy,
I think you should email to Lars, he knows the answer!

Re: eyeWeb

yeah, I'm not quite ready to go to Lars yet.  Especially on a completely new concept like this. He's really busy a lot and I already nag him about everything! Now if he were here with me in my office, it would be different.  We could work "together" on it.  Right now, I am testing a way to connect the popup windows and new tabs back to the oneye interface.  It looks promising, but it's like saying cancer research on lab rats looks promising.  smile

PS- he never responded to the last email I sent to him with a couple of apps attached that I spent days fixing but broke after he did a system update.  I was hoping he would see a quick fix and return them, but I got no answer at all.

Re: eyeWeb

I have the oneye interface with the 3 different options looking good on the screen but haven't worked out the logic after that.  I have so many different modernization projects in my head.  Some involve completely new apps with modern concepts that work with the "internet security systems" rather than fight against them, new apps that will seemlessly access the users data on the cloud (4share, dropbox, onedrive, that's 45gig of free space per user right there, but there are several more), but there are still a lot of old apps that no longer function properly, some are even "hiding" within the core.  Some of these old core apps aren't really even useful anymore, but if they are gonna stay in core, they should be fixed and modernized to maximum.  Some old non-core apps are so useful they should be added to core. I have several that were fixed with one or two lines of code.  Other non-core apps look promising but are either so buggy or so out of touch with modern php, oneye's interface, browser security or whatever and don't work at all.  Maybe af few of these can be fixed maybe not.  I have been working on this since March I believe.  Day in and day out.  Learning everything from scratch, mostly relying on google searches for coding advice.  Getting (and sometimes outright "stealing") ideas from every competing web os I can find.  My mind is constantly thinking about how to improve and modernize this thing.  I have 27 users, since alpha testing began in late summer.  Only 2 returning visitors, so the results are extremely lacklustre.  But I understand, as it's no where near where I want it be yet.

Didn't read that last post. I remember that one mail with applications attached. Might you send it again, containing short info, please?


Best regards,

Re: eyeWeb

sure, I just figured they were pretty low on the priority list.

Re: eyeWeb

I admit defeat and am giving up on mix-mashing javascript and php/onEye scripts for the time being.  I started working on my half finished, plain jane html/javascript browser again, and as long as I don't try to add in any native onEye/php, it's coming along rather nicely. I'll try to pretty it up later. I did, however, add a very "modern-styled" popup blocker notice to explain the move away from frames.  It says,

"Note: In order to maintain the high levels of security demanded by today's most popular websites, eyeSurf loads sites into Browser Windows or Tabs. To access the advanced security features of eyeSurf, your browser must be set to allow popups from OS1, and you may have to disable other third-party popup blocker software."

I thought some of ya'll may get a kick out of the sarcastic, yet sweet sounding, irony. Sadly, as you're probably aware, I didn't even have to make this crap up.
