Title: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: a1ex on September 20, 2016, 06:47:25 PM
Jenkins is overloading the server too much for my taste lately, so I'm considering rewriting the nightly builds page as static HTML, without any JavaScript. Another reason for the rewrite: the builds page is impossible to load on slow network connections.

Any volunteers to help me with this task? I'm going to use a Python script similar to this one (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/tip/features/), and here's what I came up with so far (edited manually, based on the previous template):

http://builds.magiclantern.fm/550D.html

Here's a proof of concept Python code to retrieve Jenkins build data, using JenkinsAPI (http://pythonhosted.org/jenkinsapi/):
Code: [Select]
from jenkinsapi.jenkins import Jenkins
J = Jenkins('http://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins')
B = J['500D.111'].get_last_good_build()
artifact = list(B.get_artifacts())[0]
print artifact.url

Feedback is also welcome (while I'm at it). There's some extra functionality I'd like to add, too.

Any idea how long the nightly server will be down? I just bought  600D and want to instal. If it's going to be a while I'll try and figure out how to compile but otherwise I can just wait. Thanks!

No idea, it all depends on the volunteers. The previous configuration can no longer be used because of a hardware issue on the server, unfortunately.

Hi, I went to the download page today to download the latest version of ML for the 60D and found that the download site is down.  I had a previous version on my card a while ago, but since then my wife has formatted my card and I lost magic lantern.  I haven't really needed it so I didn't worry about it, but I'm filming a wedding this weekend and needed to put it back on.  I might be able to go back and search my computer for the old magic lantern, but it was literally over a year ago that I had it on.  I don't know how the download site works, but is there any way someone could send me or put on dropbox or some other download site the latest stable or nightly of ML for the 60D?  I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks.

I would recommend running jenkins just once every 24 hours or something to that effect. Or if the repo has webhooks (like github does) then you can have it fire a rebuild request to your build server whenever new code is merged. From there, you could do something as simple as letting your webserver list directory contents of a build folder. You can do this with apache or nginx. If you wanted a better interface than that, I'd be happy to volunteer for that. I have a platform that I use called Lightning for dynamic content. It's an extremely lightweight CMS built for speed and high volume requests. It can even run without a database, although even with it, you can handle plenty of requests. If you want to talk about it send me a PM.

A1ex, I've got a simple Python script running now, that reads a generic template file, takes the URL of the latest nightly build from Jenkins and write everything into a new HTML file. I could not manage to read anything else (e.g. build time, changeset hash or the number of downloads) from the Jenkins instance so far. I need to understand the Python JenkinsAPI better if it's even possible. To bad currently Jenkins is not reachable here. So I couldn't test out things.

> There's some extra functionality I'd like to add, too.
Could you tell me what you like to add in future?

Do you plan to use one Python script that generates multiple HTML file or do you need to call it with parameters for each camera model?

Yes, that's my plan. The download links appear to require Jenkins running though, but this should be fixable.

Before Jenkins, we had some directory listing (h5ai) and a cron job that ran daily. It did the job well, but a nicer interface is tempting as well.

A1ex, I've got a simple Python script running now, that reads a generic template file, takes the URL of the latest nightly build from Jenkins and write everything into a new HTML file.

Sounds good!

Just restarted it, hope it's fine now. It used to lock up within minutes after starting, but since I've disabled the builds page, it's a little better. Not sure how to diagnose it - the symptom is very high CPU usage with no apparent reason (and no obvious increase in website traffic - it's actually pretty quiet).

I don't mind, either way should be fine.

> There's some extra functionality I'd like to add, too.

Sure, most of it should be obvious from the extra menu items from the example HTML, but I'll give some details below.

Here's what I'd like to address:

* design: OK to keep it along the same lines as the old one?

* compatibility with Windows or Mac browsers: does my HTML template look fine there?

* validation: I'm not good at web development, so other than the w3c validator, I'm not sure what to look for.

* top menu:
  - main builds: ports merged to mainline
  - early ports: ports that are still in progress and can be compiled from their own branches (e.g. 1200D)
  - additional modules:
    - here I'm thinking to list the modules that are not widely used, or still experimental (e.g. io_crypt, tiltcalc, raw_diag)
    - I can compile from user repos as well
    - todo: a list with what's worth including here
    - what about naming this just Modules, moving the modules section from the features page here, and listing additional modules below?
  - utilities
    - things like mlv_dump, raw2dng, cr2hdr, with both win/mac builds
    - todo: a list with what's worth including here
  - experiments
    - builds from branches like new_sound_system, crop_rec, iso-research
    - what about compiling pull requests automatically, so users can give feedback easier?
  - other stuff worth including?

* buttons:
  - change log
     - this used to be a popup box, which looks nice, but requires javascript, which I'd rather avoid
     - I'm open to suggestions on how to make them more obvious
     - what about displaying the changes for latest build right below the buttons?
     - the changes for old builds could be in a large HTML page; maybe only show the last month or so?
  - build log: plain text is fine for me; better suggestions?
  - old builds: large HTML page?
  - screenshots and tests:
     - proof of concept here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12396.msg119592#msg119592)
     - we may start with some menu screenshots from qemu (should already work on some cameras like 60D, 5D3, 500D, 1200D), and do the rest later.
     - a simple test would be to start each binary in QEMU and check whether ML config file gets created (this should also work on models with SD card that cannot boot the GUI yet)
     - this section has huge potential IMO (automated burn-in tests and such), but let's start with something easy, just to get the ball rolling.
  - discussion: just links to the forum (for each camera)

We don't need to finish all of these in order to get it back online; just the basics (previous functionality). I'm just thinking in advance, what would be nice to have over the next few months.

That's it for now, thanks for helping on any of those items. I expect to have some more time next week, to work on it; meanwhile, I'm mostly available during evenings (European time). We may discuss on IRC as well if you prefer.

@Alex

Suggested additional top menu items "Popular Apps", "Canon Firmware Files"

The "Popular Apps" menu could be populated with links to the home pages of 3rd party applications used by members (Public Domain only and/or Commercial).

E.G.:  AutoStakkert, CombineZP, DeepSkyStacker, Astro Photography Tool, Startrails, Startrax, Raw Therapee, UFRaw etc...

The "Canon Firmware Files" menu item would be populated with links to ML supported Canon firmware files by camera model.

Suggested items for the "Utilities" menu could be links to things like:

Maybe make a distinction between pure utilities like card testers vs workflow apps. e.g.: I would treat the likes of BarracudaGUI, CeroNoice, MLVProducer, etc. as workflow apps

Under "Additional Modules" suggest to include: "bolt_raw", "bulb_nd" and "foc_inf"

Post by: tecgen on September 22, 2016, 10:41:17 PM
A1ex, I make some progress with the Python script. Now I could generate HTML files with the data from Jenkins, that contain almost every information, like your 550D.html page example in your first post, but for every camera currently supported by ML. Missing within the HTML is currently the hash of the Mercurial changeset from the repository, the commit messages and the number of downloads. I need to extract the first two values from a structure which appears to me like a JSON object or array.

Code: [Select]
[
{
'node': '15eb9aaa05c022c637c6ece48095a219ee7069c3',
'deletedPaths': [],
'modifiedPaths': ['modules/raw_rec/Makefile'],
'author':
{
'absoluteUrl': 'https:[email protected]',
'fullName': '[email protected]'
},
'timestamp': -1,
'rev': 12166,
'commitId': None,
'date': '1473959453.0-10800',
'merge': False,
'addedPaths': [],
'_class': 'hudson.plugins.mercurial.MercurialChangeSet',
'affectedPaths': ['modules/raw_rec/Makefile'],
'msg': 'raw2dng and related: use HOST_CFLAGS (should fix building raw_rec with older compilers)'
}
]

The number of downloads must be read somehow with the JenkinsAPI, but I don't know how to do it yet. I pushed my latest progress into my development branch.

Hey folks,

Before you finish a non-Javascript version. I created a Javascript-based website for people to use in the meantime.
https://coloraggio.github.io/builds.magiclantern.fm/

It is as fast as Jenkins API allows (I optimized query parameters to make responses faster).
I also implemented a client-side caching to save useless request when user is navigating back and forth between pages.

@jzedurqn, thanks for the facelift, I like it!

@tecgen: the number of downloads is not given directly by Jenkins - that's my hack, and the info is available in a separate JSON file ( http://builds.magiclantern.fm/download-stats/api/json ). It only contains the most downloaded ones, and it's a static file (recomputed periodically).

BTW, the old site is available at http://builds.magiclantern.fm/index-js.html, for reference.

Yes looks very good , but I notice you can only download the latest nightly builds , What about older builds ?
How will there be accessed ? As we all know the latest nighty builds sometime can very problematic .
So we my have to reverting back to a older build.
Before you could show all the older builds from a dropdown menu , I think this needs to be re-implemented .

Post by: a1ex on September 24, 2016, 02:20:12 AM
Current status: https://builds.magiclantern.fm/5D2-212.html

(a small HTML page with latest build, a larger HTML page with all the old builds, and a huge HTML listing all the changes as well)

The changeset info from Jenkins appears both broken (e.g. incorrect on 1100D) and incomplete (missing branch info, for example), so I guess I should take just each build's changeset from Jenkins and lookup the other changes directly on mercurial.

I'm also thinking to show only the large changes (e.g. merged pull request XYZ, with link), since a large page with all that stuff doesn't look quite easy to read. Better ideas?

Post by: anDyIII on September 24, 2016, 04:02:41 PM
Hi folks,
I tested the new builds page a bit and it looks good! Great work!
I just have a few things to suggest for a better readability.

1st. It would be nice to group the changeset list and make it like the Older builds one. So you can click on "changes", or whatever you want, and show the list and then hide it.
2nd. Could you set the the fw version under the camera model a little bit bigger? My eyes are still good but I had to read it two times to choose the right version.  :D
Another possible solution for this, that would also shorten the list, would be: Write the camera model as simple text and write one or more firmware versions as links on its right or below it.
For example:

5D Mark III  1.1.3 (http://1.1.3)  1.2.3 (http://1.2.3)

5D Mark III
1.1.3 (http://1.1.3) 1.2.3 (http://1.2.3)

Keep up the good work guys!

There's still some missing functionality, and contributions are still welcome. Tidying the HTML, fine-tuning for mobile devices, checking the links, suggesting useful information... you name it.

Post by: garry23 on September 24, 2016, 05:57:40 PM
A1ex

Had a quick look and seems pretty good.

One observation is that I would suggest we need a way for seeing what each new build adds/subtracts from the previous build, ie info/text about functionality changes or enhancements.

At the moment 'all' you have is a link to the code.

Thanks to you and others for your continuing dedicated work.

Cheers

Click on "Older Builds", then on "show details".

Any suggestion about how to make this more readable / obvious?
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: jzedurqn on September 24, 2016, 06:20:19 PM
Nice work a1ex!

I would change camera list CSS to this, so it can left align well with the text.

Code: [Select]
.camera-list {
    margin: 0 100px 20px 0;
    float: left;
}

About the "other builds" page. In my opinion skipping the "short" version and directly showing the full version when user clicks "older builds" is better, since it's just an HTML page and person interested in older builds will prefer information about changes right away.

P.S. a1ex is the source of this website on bitbucket? I can contribute on HTML, CSS, typography, etc.
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: a1ex on September 24, 2016, 07:00:24 PM
Applied those as well, thanks.

I'll upload it to bitbucket as well, but right now I need a little break :D

Meanwhile, changes can be made directly to the HTML. Turning it into template is easy for me (I use the Mako engine), but when it comes to design, I just do this:

At some point when it's on Bitbucket people (me or others) can contribute and do fixes here and there.
The most important thing is that the website right now as it is looks fine and works fine.

@A1lex
Just a couple of suggested wording changes (in red) to the following section on the "Builds" page.

When it will be ready?
Unfortunately, Magic Lantern ports don't happen to a schedule.
There is no plan, and there is no Magic Lantern organization that specifies which port happens next.
If there is work being done on a camera, there will be a development thread in the forum.
If there is no mention of development activity on the forum, there is no reason to ask about that camera's status: It is not supported, and there is no way for anyone to know if or when it might be supported. Your guess is as good as ours.
If there is no ML available for your camera, you should act like it never will be. -- Walter Schulz

Just  thought.

Maybe display the latest Build Date and Time under each camera model on the Nightly Build landing page or some other indicator that a new build exists. This would remove the need to drill down further unless a new build was available.

Canon updated firmware for a whole bunch of cams. At time of writing these nightly build pages are linked to Canon downloads with firmware not supported by ML:
6D
60D, 60Da
700D
650D
600D
500D
1100D

I suggest to use links to Pelican's repository instead

Description for 70D should be edited (1.1.1 -> 1.1.2). And 100D, too: 1.0.0 -> 1.0.1

I suggest to avoid links to Canon at all and use Pelican's repository for 5D2, 550D and 50D instead.

Installation instructions for 5D3.113 and 5D3.123 may be altered from
"[...] If you are running 1.3.3, you can downgrade with EOS Utility."
to
"[...] If you are running 1.3.3 or higher, you can downgrade with EOS Utility 2.x."
A link to EOS Digital Solution Disk 29.1A (containing EOS Utility 2.14.10) might be helpful. For all I know EOS Utility 3.x will not allow downgrading firmware.
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: dfort on December 29, 2016, 05:39:04 PM
Don't know if you already have this but it would be great to track the number of downloads per platform. The Nightly builds page would be an obvious place to show the number of downloads.

Reasons for this are:

1- People looking into buying a camera can see which camera and firmware version is the most popular with ML users.
2- Developers can see when a new feature shows a spike in the number of downloads.

I've been posting some test builds from development branches and was surprised at the amount of interest in the 5D3.123 despite what seems to be a recommendation to use 5D3.113 for better performance or if clean HDMI out, dual monitor support and AF at f/8 with teleconverters is not required.

A bit off topic but since Walter brought it up -- when upgrading or downgrading the Canon firmware I've always put the Canon firmware on the card and done the process in camera without problems. The issue with not being able to downgrade seem to apply only to users attempting to do it using EOS Utility 3.x. Am I missing something by doing it in camera?

One more thing -- you can include the 5D3 to the list of Canon updated firmware. Version 1.3.4 was released on November 29, 2016. Pelican has already added it to his site.

Post by: garry23 on December 29, 2016, 05:44:55 PM
Re up/downgrading, I successfully went backwards and forwards between 5D3 113 and 123 several times yesterday: all by 'just' using the canon in-camera upgrade firmware approach.

Firmware can only be downgraded to 1.1.3 from eos utility when going from 1.3.4. Do it from the card and your camera will tell you no. Do it from eos utlity and we,re ok. Thankfully.
The issue doesn,t seem to occur with 1.1.3 to 1.2.3 and back.

Post by: Walter Schulz on December 29, 2016, 06:09:11 PM
@dfort & garry23: Canon introduced firmware downgrade check with 1.3.3 for 5D3. As Danne wrote downgrading is blocked in 1.3.3 and 1.3.4 when using the cam's menu option.
@dort: Links for 5D3 - as you can check - are leading to Pelican's repository. Therefore 5D3 is not included in the list above.
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: garry23 on December 29, 2016, 07:07:25 PM
@Walter thanks for the claification.  I'll be sticking to 123 for now, as I need the F/8 AF on my x2 extender 70-200.

For me, not shooting video, 113 doesn't seem to add much, if anything, over 123.

One day I might try ML raw video :-), i.e. On my EOSM. But I do 'worry' it is a lot of effort, but then again I haven't really tried it.

I wonder what the easiest way is to get into raw video on the EOSM?

https://builds.magiclantern.fm/modules.html

A GIF similar to the one from bulb_nd should be fine. If there's nothing interesting to show, a submenu screenshot would be enough.

For module authors: to add your module to this page, I need a link to your repository and a screenshot.

@a1ex Thought I'd be helpful, did a GIF for burst.mo(I hope no one else is making the same gif as I post, but if you are, I'm sorry, but still post it because it's probably better than mine)

Is the 5D2 screen resolution the same as others? I thought it was 640x480 but the screenshots are 720x480

The build server is on Linux? Any chance the Utilities page could also host Linux/Mac apps besides those Windows ones since you can just build them anyway?

Ilia: thanks, I've resized it like this:
Code: [Select]
convert -coalesce burst.gif burst.png
convert -delay 100 -loop 0 burst-*.png -resize 50% -layers Optimize burst2.gif

Reason: current web browsers don't seem to do a good job at resizing the original (aliasing issues).

5D2 has 640x480 physical resolution, but 720x480 logical buffer. The exact mapping from buffer to display is unknown; can be probably found with a bit of patience to try some patterns.

@Licaon_Kter: do Linux binaries make any sense? (I mean, compiling host binaries on this system usually just works)

For Mac, I need some help setting up the build environment. I've tried a while ago on the old server, with advice from kichetof (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.msg126726#msg126726), but got stuck.

Like on any other platform, don't just go the "if you run Linux you already compile stuff" way :) (if your response was like that)
Else, that page kinda says "You'll need Windows to use Magic Lantern" otherwise ;)

Okay, pull request welcome for statically linking these binaries, preferably with this tool (http://ptspts.blogspot.com/2014/01/announcing-pts-xstatic-tool-for.html). Bonus points for x86 and ARM support in the same binary.

I'm running a derivative of it on Axiom Beta (ARM processor, Arch Linux).

There are some ARM tablets running Linux as well.

Is there any easy way to get to the experimentals (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/experiments.html) page from the home page (http://magiclantern.fm/) by following links? Seems like the only way to access that page is by the URL posted on various forum posts.

Are the experimentals also on a nightly schedule? Just wondering because there were some updates that haven't come through yet.

Finally, which branches are the experimentals coming from? The Crop mode recording build log says 5D3.113-crop3x-april-1st-edition which isn't in the main repository and the log doesn't have any trace of 5D3.123 yet there's a build for it.

Unless this was intended for but should we try and get new screenshots of every feature in this page (https://www.magiclantern.fm/features.htmlpage)?

I'd be happy to help out @a1ex!

Hey, how did you get there? I removed that page a while ago, because it was pretty outdated and some things were not exactly true. Would be nice to have it updated.

Yes. Would you volunteer to write some scripts? A starting point is in the QEMU test suite.

Each of those pages has a link at the top of the page to that old features page.

Here they are (coming from a 7D since it has the Audio Controls) and if for any reason(s) you prefer screenshots from the 5D3 -- just let me know!

Guys!
It may be a silly question but my firmware version was 1.1.0, after I found 1.1.2 on Canon's official page, so I've installed it. Can I install ML on my camera anyway?

"The owner has disabled downloading of their photos"

(I could try some things like screenshot followed by recompression, but the end result will not be the best - Flickr doesn't even show them at native resolution)

Man I keep forgetting to click on 'Save' after selecting allowing for downloads from Public (it was on Flickr members only) so yes it should be downloadable now.

Forgive me if I've got this wrong.

In the experimental area would it be useful to place a link in each sub section, eg Lua_fix etc, including sections such as Lua_api_docs, that took one straight to the correct area to report things and suggest changes.

At the moment you need to know where to report, and if you don't know you are rather lost.

Just a thought.
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: a1ex on February 04, 2017, 10:29:14 AM
Each experimental build has a link to the relevant forum thread...
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: garry23 on February 04, 2017, 11:17:29 AM
@A1ex

Yes I know that, but I wondered if there was a 'better' link when you are suggesting changes, ie rather than 'just' the forum thread.

Also the lua_api doc doesn't have a form area, ie where we can all contribute.

As I said: just a thought. No big deal if we stay where we are :-)
Title: Re: Nightly builds page redesign (static HTML)
Post by: a1ex on February 04, 2017, 11:44:49 AM
Added a link to BitBucket page for each section, and a link to forum threads where it's explained how one can help.

I'd like to keep the pages static (simple and robust), and I don't see the need for an additional section for comments (besides the forum).

Added links to more ports in progress (actually "stalled" might be a better word for some of them) on the download page.

Also added links to existing ROM dumpers:

On the Top of the Page is written:

Quote
Main Builds
These builds have been around for some time, and they are unlikely to cause major issues.
In most cases, regressions are fixed quickly - if you report them.

I like this text, and think they are OK.

But the builds here display once a day the Warning message "This is a development snapshot for testing purposes." etc. (menuhelp.c, draw_beta_warning)

In my opinion, this is a inconsistency. I would remove this message from ML.
Or an alternative would be to display the history, if ML is updated (once, not every day), like some Android Apps does, and then the Text: "Please report all bugs at www.magiclantern.fm"

(Or change the nightly build, and defined CONFIG_RELEASE_BUILD?).

I know, it's a little bit offtopic, but I think the message should match the new Download page, even if the page is not that new anymore...
