GigiDAG Live addon (utility)

Hi fellow GFU members! :pc:

I wrote a tiny file-system (wfx) plugin for Total Commander, which makes possible to retrieve the current list of Gigi D'Agostino lives from the official page easily & quickly.

Download:

  • Removed due to copyright actions of Mr. D'Agostino.

Features:

  • Retrieve the list of tourdates / lives with the speed of light (discoteca, city, country, date)
  • Online distance measurement (the plugin automatically detects the distance between your city and every single live location) [you can see it in Size field]
  • Different icons for active (future) and past lives (plus the past lives got -a-- [archive] attribute)
  • Properties: double-click (or press Enter) on an item to see its detailed informations in a dialog window
  • Automatic save & load of past tourdates

How To Use:

  • You can install the plugin by pressing Enter key on the downloaded zip file inside Total Commander, it will automatically ask for installing the plugin. After installation a dialog appears, which asks for your City, and the used Metric (km / miles) - this is only needed to retrieve the distances between your city & the tourdate locations with the help of a Google service. You can tick the "I don't want to use online distance measurement", if you'd like to turn this feature off.
  • After installation you can find the plugin by clicking on the "Network" drive in Total Commander - it is listed as "GigiDAG Live". Double click on it / press enter to see the list of the lives.
  • More info: http://www.ghisler.c...ndex.php/Plugin

Important Note:

  • The very first query to get the list of lives, distances etc (right after installation) may take 3-5 seconds (according to your download speed), but the plugin is capable of "learning": it will check the distance between a given city only once - next time just read it from a local configuration file, to make it even faster. The average query time is about 1.5-1.8 seconds on a relatively quick PC with ~4Mbps dl speed.

Changelog:

  • 0.6.0.0 RC (Release Candidate)
    • New: More pluginst.inf localization strings (DEU, ITA, HUN)
    • New: Show the actual (future) lives in the Root directory of the plugin
    • New: "01 - Past events" directory - list past events/lives inside this directory
    • New: "02 - My lives" directory - list only the lives on which the user was / will be present (will be ready for final 0.6)
    • Fixed: crash on clicking "Properties" item (Alt + Enter) when the cursor is on a directory
    • Fixed: improper display of City / Province field in the Properties dialog in case of multiple brackets
    • Fixed: couple of other things

    [*]0.5.6.0

    • Fixed Access Violation error in case of empty lists

    [*]0.5.5.0

    • Fixed order of tourdates
    • Small core bugfixes
    • Some code-cleaning

Screenshot:

Heavily tested under Total Commander 7.57a & 8.01.

Hope you like it - questions, suggestions & bug reports are very welcome. =)

P.S.: Excuse me if i opened it in the wrong forum category, i wasn't sure about where to put it.

New version (0.5.6) up - i fixed a problem causing "Access Violation" error in case of empty list (right after installing), now it should work for everyone. Please let me know if you have any problems using it.

Download link is updated in the first post.

New version (0.6.0 RC) is up.

I've added a couple of new features, such as separate directories for Past events - from now on you can see the active (future) lives in the Root directory of the plugin, everything else is in separate directory. Besides this, the plugin is now able to save a list of your lives under My lives directory (this function isn't fully implemented atm though, needs more work to be fully-functional; checked items are saved but not displayed yet - will be ready for the final 0.6 version).

Please let me know if you have any advice / question / problems using it. :blume: See the full changelog & download link in the first post.
