This program will help you navigate through the Basic! FTP Server. It will make your downloads easier.

[The menus]
Once you open the program you're logged in to the Ftp Server.
There are two menus, one on the lower left corner, and one on the upper right corner. The first one is a windows like menu (press basic icon on the bar), and gives you direct access to the ftp dirs, at any time. The second one is an ICS like menu and gives you access to the actions/options of the program. (this program between others unites the world of Windows with the world of Android :mrgreen:) Pressing again the menu icon will close that menu if you don't want to select anything.

[Selecting files opening directories]
Once you open some directory you will see directories & files. By touching a dir you open it, by touching a file you select it. Once you selected a file, will be also in your download list.

[The upper right menu]
As i said before there is a (pseudo) android menu on the upper right corner.
The options are:
Get selected: All files choosen will be downloaded.
.bas files will be placed into the rfo-basic/source/ directory,
.apk files will be placed into the rfo-basic/ directory,
all other files will be placed in the rfo-basic/data/ directory
Deselect all: will clear the download list
Deselect last: will remove last element from the download list.
Download list: will show you the files you selected for downloading.
If you changed your mind, using the above options you can remove current last element (once or more times), or all elements of the download list.
Preview last: will preview the last selected item. Supports
bas,html,xml text files & jpeg,png files. So you may want to take a look into a source or a screenshot of some program before you decide to download it.;-)
Upload Files.. Use this to upload your files to the FTP Server. You will be prompted to choose the files to upload, and the
name of your app's directory
AutoPreview Selecting this every time you change directory, you will be automatically previewing the screenshot file, if it exits, otherwise the first image file in that dir.
ShowDetails By turning on this option, you will be viewing also date & size of ftp server files.
HighLight By turning on this option, you last selected file will be highlighted.
LocalDirs.. Will list source, data,databases, rfo-basic directories.
FTP Search Will search FTP Server for a given file name.
Basic! Forum Opens rfobasic.freeforums.org in your browser.
Change skin: this is the background of the screen. There is a colored skin, a space skin, a sea skin and a blank dark blue skin.
By selecting this option you'll be rotating through these skins.
Help: Will show program help in html format.
About: Info on version & changes.
Quit: You should be using this to quit program, because it closes the connection properly.

[The action bar]
There are two info lines on the bottom bar. The first, red one, will show you the current path. The second, green one, will inform you about your actions.

Your preferences (Skin,AutoPreview,ShowDetails) are saved upon exit.

Source is here:

and apk here:

... close to an app store? ;-)

Enjoy,
Antonis

I was planning this for the next release. For now i want to know that
the program is stable and debugged.

I can add this option on the next release.

Hi Tony,

Truly a great piece of app :)

I first launched it before reading your "howto" (first post of this thread).. and I didn't figure out the top-right menu (I didn't know it was a button) so I was a little confused :oops:
Maybe you could add a visual aid in the main screen, at the very start, something like that :
Attachment:
ftpstore1.png
ftpstore1.png [ 60.64 KiB | Viewed 6390 times ]


About bug feedback : I found that operate a "preview last" on a readme.txt displays the text file briefly (~1s) then closes the preview. There may be something wrong here.

As I said it is a great tool and I don't know the direction in which you want to make it evolve. Personnaly I think the Google Play (Android Market) is a great source of inspiration on user-friendliness. We could replicate some of these ideas in FtpStore : for example I would find it great to automatically see a little thumbnail of the screenshot.png at the bottom of the screen (tap on it would zoom it, as currently done by "preview last"), as well as automatically display the content of the readme.txt.

Where this could be fun is use the Run <filename_sexp> to chain a BASIC! program : same as in the Google Play, there could be a big button "download" that could turn into a "run" button when downloaded (or directly a "run" button when already present at next start of FtpStore). Of course this feature can only be used when FtpStore is launched from editor and not apk. I was even thinking FtpStore could be packed with BASIC! and upon installation two shortcuts would be made in your device : "BASIC!" and "BASIC! apps" that would simply be a BASIC! shortcut to FtpStore.bas... Hehe I sure have big imagination :roll:

Nicolas, the error you reported affects last page of every document type file.
In the case of the readme.txt, just happens first page to be last page.
To solve it goto line 597. This is a blank link line.( a coincidence ?).
Insert there "gosub wait"

Quote:
ENDIF
ENDIF
repeat
gosub wait
file.delete f,"../"+name$
GR.hide preview


For the rest, your imagination goes far beyond mine :mrgreen:
But for one thing we agree: that run command is a crazy-wild command :shock:


In the next release there will be the upload feature, and the auto-preview feature.
Cartix, for now you can preview image or text files with the "preview last" option.
I'm going to evolve further this program, i'm listening to your suggestions.

i tried it: really cool!

nice to wait for the next release... :D

the idea with a run option is beautiful, but nevertheless
i think - with growing number of prgs - if it is better to
copy all data files to rfobasic/data/[PRG-NAME]/ and code
to ../source/[PRG-NAME]/ ... ?
but then we have to make it to a convention, so that every
coder have to adapt his loading / opening dir structures ...

(oh, my english is so ugly... :| )

oliver

p.s.: tony: what happens if the number of dir / files oversizes
the current window ..? next page button ? or use html view?

7/23/12 -New version (v1.1) released!
Changes in this version:
*Added "Upload Files" Option (see below)
*Added "AutoPreview" Option (see below)
*Added a link to the forum inside the options menu
*Added new icon for image files
*Added "balloon welcome" :mrgreen:
* fixed two bugs

[Upload files..]
Selecting this you will be prompted to choose the files to upload from your source directory
and from your data directory. After you will be asked to insert your app's directory name and
confirm uploading.

[AutoPreview]
This is an on/off option. When on, every time you change directory you will be previewing the
screenshot file inside that dir if it exists, otherwise the first image file inside that dir.

Oliver, goto JeffKerr's tools/GraphicControls/FoodManagerData/ dir and see what happens.

IAO, is the process of uploading clear & simple enough? ;)
