  1. Well, I was hoping someone would continue the discussion, so great! We can redo the conversion. But is it really that critical to migrate the history intact? I question the need for that. If not we can start fresh. Authors - The conversion I went through had the ability to add email addresses to the author names. I just don't know what the email addresses are for the authors in Sourceforge. I've attached the author list if anyone wants to help flesh out the email addresses.Then we can rerun the conversion. Branches and tags. - I looked at the SVN repo and there's only one branch,
  2. I followed these instructions: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/migrating-overview I did that because my goal initially was to export to bitbucket, which I did. Then I changed my mind and decided that Github would be better for a community project like this. So then, since it was already in a Git format it was simple from within the Github website to select "import" and just point to the Bitbucket URL. Note: Those instructions work best if executed from a linux machine. I quickly spun-up an Ubuntu VM to do this.
  3. I've exported the OpenG sources from Sourceforge SVN to Github. It's located here: https://github.com/Open-G I'm hoping this will encourage collaboration and modernization of the OpenG project. Pull requests are a thing with Git, so contributions can be encouraged and actually used instead of dying on the vine.
  4. Not having looked at your code, do you think this should go into OpenG? How can we improve OpenG? Where is the OpenG repo?
  5. I'm glad to see all these frameworks being bashed about. I like to read opinions from people who have tried the various frameworks and can compare based on real implementations. Not example code. Just came back from the US CLA summit (videos being posted to LabVIEW Wiki soon). Apparently there's YAF (Yet Another Framework) being used by Composed Systems and it was presented at the CLA summit: https://bitbucket.org/composedsystems/mva-framework/src/master/ It seems to be an actor-framework extension. Framework on top of framework? Jon argued that the complexity of a framework is secondary
  6. The following slide was just presented at the CLA summit:
  7. All of this spam was created a long time ago when the site was more vulnerable. The wiki has been locked down since then, and this should not happen again (but some get through). I deleted the first list of pages you mentioned. The uploaded images are tedious to delete because there no simple tool I've found to do it on a mass scale. Since they're not linked anywhere then they don't do much harm except use up server space. It seems you have time. So I will connect with you directly offline to give you some rights.
  8. The OP didn't clarify his requirements so we could all be wrong. But ya, all you guys say is true. - Thanks. My intent was to start the conversation, not to provide the best solution. I just wanted to show how the delete from array works and to provide some visuals.
  9. I dunno. Your question is not clear, but let me take a shot. This example deletes the last 3 elements of an array of strings. Don't forget that array indexes start at 0, not 1.
  10. @Tim_S, the OP makes a valid point. All you say is true, however, the link remains broken and the person packaging the OpenG tools should either fix the link and provide the documentation, or remove the link from the package build.
  11. We're starting to add the back catalog to YouTube. NIWeek 2018 videos are also up.
  12. Mark of course has the originals and always will. So that's not an issue. However, nobody cares about some LabVIEW videos. Yes, that's a great idea. It's a wiki so anyone can add them if needed. Feel free to contact them or edit the page. That's because the videos are unlisted. We are doing this so that in order to view the videos you have to go to the wiki page as the entry point. This way they are kept within the community. This was the compromise to balance accessibility. We can deal with that issue if we hit it, which I doubt we will. Considering the videos are unli
  13. Hey folks. this year we're trying something new. All Videos for NIWeek 2019 can be found here: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/NIWeek_2019 Feedback welcome. Thanks to @Mark Balla and other volunteers for recording the videos. Edit: We're starting to add the back catalog to YouTube. NIWeek 2018 videos are also up.
  14. I don't have the time or desire to figure out how to automate this. But it's cool that trick works.
  15. Is this error message coming from a VI that you are running on the RT target? Have you tried using the NI Distributed System Manager? I use that to debug Ethercat issues. When you switch to Active mode using NI DSM, it works pretty consistently. Unfortunately the NI Ethercat driver is a load of poop. Soft reboot of the controller usually fixes things up.
  16. I have no idea. That seems to be a URL in the old format which died a log time ago. The post probably still exists but was converted to a new URL format and there is no redirect.
  17. What happens when you create a page? Do you get an error or something?
  18. Thanks for the interesting conversation. I've resolved the issue however, in a roundabout way and by cleaning up my code. The UDP communication code in question is a model written in LabVIEW running on VeriStand, which is essentially a bunch of LabVIEW RT timed loops running on a Phar Lap target. So the model essentially opens a UDP connection, sends the message, then closes the connection. This is done at a rate of 50Hz. I changed the code so that it opens the connection at the start of the test and the model just continuously sends the message at the 50Hz rate, then at the end of the te
  19. Looking at this post by an NI employee. It seems that the ARP table cannot be statically defined on Phar Lap.
  20. I'm using LabVIEW to do all this. So not sure how to do RUDP. I'm using UDP because of the low overhead. But maybe I can still get the throughput with other methods. I will have to experiment and see. I've just never considered that this issue would come up at the slow rate I'm using. Edit: It seems like ARP has a configurable timeout. Since my test only lasts for about 2hrs. Perhaps i can do an ARP at the start of the test and set the timeout longer than 2hrs. Now to figure out how to configure this timeout in Phar Lap.
  21. I have LabVIEW code on 2 separate PCs using UDP to send data. It's a one-way path from a LV RT Pharlap Target to a Windows10 receiver. I'm streaming data at a rate of 50Hz and I don't lose any packets. I have confirmed this with Wireshark. However, every 15min. the sender sends an ARP packet instead of a UDP packet. This lost packet is critical to my process and not acceptable. Is there a way to turn off ARP or change the timeout of it to something longer than 15min? I realize I need ARP, or do I? Can I just update this magical table manually? Info on ARP from Wireshark.
  22. So it seems Bitbucket has some solution for this actually. I think Github as well. It's called LFS (Large File System), and it manages large files outside of the repository. Here's their tutorial: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/git-lfs You just have to specify git lfs track '<pattern>' This can be a folder, file wildcard etc as explained in the docs. I think released installers should not be versioned. It doesn't make sense, and is not very convenient, to revert your entire repo to a tag, just to send someone the correct version of the installer. So I defi
  23. I use tags as well to mark where a new release version is built. This way I can go back to the tag if I need to branch, to fix a bug on that version or to track down a version related issue. I'm in agreement. Whoah. 10Gb is definitely larger and would basically solve my problem. More than enough (famous last words). However, a lot of these decisions are also related to the surrounding ecosystem of tools. Bitbucket surrounds itself with Atlassian products which I love and use. I previously switched from Kiln and the main reason is not so much the repo management but the surrounding tool
