Daily Log for #alfresco

2017-11-23 08:09:53 GMT <yreg> Morning

2017-11-23 09:51:26 GMT <bhagyas> Good morning all

2017-11-23 09:51:27 GMT <bhagyas> :)

2017-11-23 10:56:50 GMT <fwu> hi all!

2017-11-23 10:57:25 GMT <fwu> ppl, can we change some ideas about angular? Anyone knows how the angular ui project is going?

2017-11-23 10:57:51 GMT <fwu> I realize angular is now at version 5. Are the Alfresco components still at version 2?

2017-11-23 11:00:39 GMT <angelborroy> fwu you have a lot of info about ADF staff in Community and Github

2017-11-23 11:00:51 GMT <angelborroy> staff > stuff

2017-11-23 11:01:34 GMT <angelborroy> making a simple search by “ADF” at community.alfresco.com

2017-11-23 11:01:41 GMT <angelborroy> First entry: https://community.alfresco.com/community/application-development-framework/blog/2017/10/16/generating-an-angular-cli-project-and-preparing-it-for-use-with-adf-190

2017-11-23 11:01:55 GMT <angelborroy> “ADF, is built on top of the Angular 4 JavaScript "

2017-11-23 11:08:40 GMT <fwu> ok angelborroy. Last time I thought it was on top of angular 2

2017-11-23 11:09:05 GMT <fwu> do you know what activiti is using for the ui? Are they using Angular also?

2017-11-23 11:09:13 GMT <angelborroy> Angular 1

2017-11-23 11:10:00 GMT <angelborroy> but they are moving to ADF also

2017-11-23 11:11:55 GMT <fwu> ok, so the efforts of both are merging. nice

2017-11-23 11:12:55 GMT <fwu> but are the last community version compatible with angular/adf? I beleive the 5.2 already has the latest API, or not?

2017-11-23 11:20:24 GMT <angelborroy> 201707 is compatible with ADF

2017-11-23 11:52:34 GMT <fwu> angelborroy, thank you

2017-11-23 11:52:42 GMT <fwu> Are you using adf/angular in any project?

2017-11-23 11:53:25 GMT <angelborroy> yes

2017-11-23 11:57:53 GMT <fwu> just one more thing: the authentication component is now able to login automatically in both content and workflow services?

2017-11-23 11:58:01 GMT <angelborroy> yep

2017-11-23 11:58:12 GMT <angelborroy> only workflow Enterprise by now

2017-11-23 11:58:16 GMT <angelborroy> and no SSO support

2017-11-23 12:01:55 GMT <fwu> ok, but you are using adf with community?

2017-11-23 12:03:15 GMT <angelborroy> I’m using ADF with Alfresco CE 201707

2017-11-23 12:38:04 GMT <tushar> hey guys

2017-11-23 12:38:19 GMT <tushar> can anyone help me with this ?

2017-11-23 12:38:19 GMT <tushar> https://community.alfresco.com/message/824361-version-difference-of-documents-in-alfresco-share-52

2017-11-23 12:38:21 GMT <alfbot> Title: Version Difference of documents in alfresco sha... | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2017-11-23 12:41:00 GMT <yreg> tushar, haven't checked that post but I know that share sometimes refreshes the whole page when some AJAX request gets an unauthorized response code

2017-11-23 12:41:20 GMT <yreg> so that's probably something worth following up

2017-11-23 12:43:14 GMT <tushar> on it

2017-11-23 12:47:28 GMT <yreg> tushar, if you can have a screenshot of the network tab from chrome developer tools, that might also help us understand what's going on :)

2017-11-23 13:32:54 GMT <MorganP> Any way to go beyond the 255 char limit when using webdav

2017-11-23 13:40:31 GMT <yreg> MorganP, switch to linux ?

2017-11-23 13:40:35 GMT <yreg> :D

2017-11-23 13:40:36 GMT <angelborroy> resplin talk here about using shortcuts https://community.alfresco.com/community/ecm/blog/2017/11/03/moving-from-smb-to-webdav

2017-11-23 13:40:38 GMT <alfbot> Title: Moving from SMB to WebDAV | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2017-11-23 13:40:53 GMT <angelborroy> but it looks like there is no available solution

2017-11-23 13:41:09 GMT <yreg> what angelborroy mentioned can help as well

2017-11-23 13:41:11 GMT <angelborroy> but swiching to Linux., of couarse :D

2017-11-23 13:41:19 GMT <MorganP> I'm on mac personnally

2017-11-23 13:41:22 GMT <MorganP> but my users aren't :D

2017-11-23 13:41:36 GMT <angelborroy> I’m on Mac but I’m thinking on moving again to Linux

2017-11-23 13:41:57 GMT <angelborroy> They removed my telnet / ftp command line tools in the last OS upgrading...

2017-11-23 13:42:10 GMT <yreg> angel you really do not need more than 16G of RAM

2017-11-23 13:42:37 GMT <angelborroy> Not really, it’s just that I feel Mac OS is moving in a different direction

2017-11-23 13:42:48 GMT <angelborroy> I’m using terminal 90% of the time

2017-11-23 13:42:56 GMT <angelborroy> so probably Linux is better for me

2017-11-23 13:47:42 GMT <MorganP> I was thinking about adding url rewrite on httpd for example

2017-11-23 13:47:45 GMT <MorganP> to shorten the URLs

2017-11-23 13:47:54 GMT <MorganP> but not sure it would work well...

2017-11-23 13:50:35 GMT <yreg> MorganP, you would need to actually proxy/alter page content as well

2017-11-23 13:50:43 GMT <yreg> not an easy task actuall

2017-11-23 13:51:10 GMT <yreg> might become easier when coded in GoLang, still too much work though

2017-11-23 14:17:11 GMT <AFaust> MorganP, yreg, angelborroy: Note that limits on path lengths are beginning to disappear in Windows 10

2017-11-23 14:17:12 GMT <AFaust> https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365247(v=vs.85).aspx#maxpath

2017-11-23 14:17:26 GMT <AFaust> There is a registry setting you may have to enable to remove the path length limit

2017-11-23 14:17:40 GMT <bhagyas> Any thoughts on IRC channel being mirrored on twitter?

2017-11-23 14:18:05 GMT <yreg> bhagyas, you can have a bot to do that

2017-11-23 14:18:09 GMT <angelborroy> probably alfbot could be enhanced to tweet

2017-11-23 14:18:10 GMT <AFaust> bhagyas: "Mirrored" - you want to make every text a tweet?

2017-11-23 14:18:14 GMT <yreg> but what would be the usecase ?

2017-11-23 14:18:21 GMT <bhagyas> AFaust: exactly that

2017-11-23 14:18:37 GMT <bhagyas> yreg: nothing, just public archival

2017-11-23 14:18:41 GMT <AFaust> Ok, then expect most of my messages to start with [notweet]

2017-11-23 14:18:45 GMT <bhagyas> haha

2017-11-23 14:18:55 GMT <angelborroy> bhagyas why chat.alfresco.com is not a public archival?

2017-11-23 14:19:15 GMT <bhagyas> angelborroy: it only has history for past three months

2017-11-23 14:19:33 GMT <AFaust> then you just have to grab those files and put them on a public server of your own to retain them longer...

2017-11-23 14:19:58 GMT <bhagyas> yeah, the bot would actually respect the [nolog]

2017-11-23 14:20:01 GMT <bhagyas> and ignore the noise

2017-11-23 14:20:22 GMT <AFaust> I would require a differentiation between [nolog] and [notweet]

2017-11-23 14:20:35 GMT <yreg> MorganP, if you are interested in a better native experience with Alfresco on windows, I would advise you to checkout this webinar : https://xenit.eu/webinars/announcing-alfred-desktop-3-6/

2017-11-23 14:20:37 GMT <bhagyas> AFaust: sounds like a good idea

2017-11-23 14:20:38 GMT <bhagyas> :D

2017-11-23 14:21:00 GMT <MorganP> I saw the mail

2017-11-23 14:21:10 GMT <AFaust> Well - it sounds like a good idea only if you already think mirroring IRC to twitter is a good idea in the first place...

2017-11-23 14:21:59 GMT <yreg> AFaust, I would actually consider it to be a good idea if you could opt in instead of opt out

2017-11-23 14:22:33 GMT <yreg> something like [dotweet] [include-chatlog-link] message

2017-11-23 14:23:03 GMT <AFaust> ...or that. Opt-in which is generally required in Germany for most such "transparent" features where your data is moved somewhere else

2017-11-23 14:23:06 GMT <bhagyas> its an idea, good or bad is personal

2017-11-23 14:23:07 GMT <bhagyas> :D

2017-11-23 14:23:50 GMT <bhagyas> (subjective)

2017-11-23 14:23:56 GMT <AFaust> Though I would stop and ask, why archiving to community.alfresco.com isn't discussed as the more appropriate place...

2017-11-23 14:24:38 GMT <bhagyas> AFaust: How about posting forum questions on to IRC automatically?

2017-11-23 14:25:21 GMT <AFaust> Sure - there aren't too many of them at the moment anyway (at least those passing moderation).

2017-11-23 14:25:36 GMT <AFaust> Just don't do it for every language sub-forum.

2017-11-23 14:25:44 GMT <AFaust> Global spaces only...

2017-11-23 14:26:17 GMT <bhagyas> also stack overflow [alfresco] tags

2017-11-23 14:26:22 GMT <bhagyas> tagged questions

2017-11-23 14:26:47 GMT <AFaust> Whatever... just don't open a spam gate...

2017-11-23 14:27:18 GMT <AFaust> And be prepared to close that down when the horrendously stupid question suck the fun out of being here...

2017-11-23 14:27:23 GMT <bhagyas> also #alfresco tagged tweets from twitter

2017-11-23 14:27:24 GMT <bhagyas> :p

2017-11-23 14:27:51 GMT <AFaust> Well - now you are on your way to some global feed / aggregate service.

2017-11-23 14:27:51 GMT <bhagyas> so people who enjoy outdoor dining can get more attn

2017-11-23 14:28:08 GMT <AFaust> Don't forget the NSFW post with #alfresco (from time to time)

2017-11-23 14:28:12 GMT <bhagyas> exactly

2017-11-23 14:28:43 GMT <AFaust> At that time, logging in to #alfresco will require an age verfication step

2017-11-23 19:48:21 GMT <HarlinS> Had no idea that tweeting with #alfresco included outdoor sports :-)

2017-11-23 19:48:48 GMT <HarlinS> what is this world coming to? ;-)

2017-11-23 21:40:46 GMT <atg_> Hello

2017-11-23 21:41:07 GMT <atg_> I am unsure whether or not i should use the community installer

2017-11-23 21:41:33 GMT <atg_> Is there any reason to do a manual install over an installer insall?
