JAV Database HTA Application: Work In Progress…pretty much

    With all the great stuff being produced by @ding73ding (JAV Database thread) and @kunoichi (VivaJapan - Video Management Application thread) I can only update that I've managed to reduce the lines of code in the JAD app of mine. Last version I produced for myself was 13kb, now I'm down to 10kb. Basically I consolidated two very similar procedures in the code into one with a boolean passed to determine how to split the duties as if there were still two separate ones.

    It still looks and feels like my last posted video example. Really for what I need it to do, it is working for me. But I still wanted to have it navigate to a page for each title clicked to show more data on it. When I can get to it, I suppose.

    I do at times get to put this thing to good use! Saw a request for GAS-444 on JAVLibrary...and I knew I had it. But where!?

    GAS-444.

    @ding73ding, well it turns out my boss said I might not have to learn Python after all. They're switching gears on how they want to accomplish whatever it is they were trying. I didn't even know.

    But, hey, what about Xojo? With VB being my thing, I'm wondering how that can play out for cross-platform. I can code in VB-like code where I'm comfortable AND, to quote their site "Xojo can be used to develop apps for iPhone and iPad, macOS, Windows, Linux, the web and Raspberry Pi"

    Ah... sorry. Never heard of Xojo so that's -5 points right there. I am not super-geek but something I never heard of is not likely to be important.

    So... let's a-Google... ok it's proprietary, -10 points. Supported by one single company -10, not public traded company -10. Been around for quite a few years +10, been around for a few years and never heard of it, -50. Stack Overflow has 85 entries for tag xojo, vs. 79,850 for tag matlab (a proprietary language that I use), -1000 points. (for reference Python tag has 998,925 entries) So the sum doesn't look good. Unless someone pay me a lot of money, I'm not going further with Xojo. I advice you consider the same.

    And... I don't think I will ever need a JAV app on Raspberry Pi. For my use, porn is not very mobile or cross platform. But... actually my program 99.5% (hesitant to claim 100% now) cross-platform for Win/macOS/Linux. For iOS and Android I guess a solution is out there but I haven't investigated it.

    Not to be spineless about new things, I was wondering what it would look like to have a JAV shop (physical one) look to my app. While this isn't implemented, only a mock up of a virtual shelf with DVDs side by side, it does look interesting.
