Hello,

I want to ask if there is a simple fix for lumaupdater not updating hourly builds, if a custom path (e.g. /payloads/luma.bin) is provided. Has someone fixed it? I don't wanna spend my free time setting up devkit etc. if it is already fixed. The developer seems not to updating this application anymore. Latest commit is from 08/16.

I think there is a bug in the extraction routine of the hourly builds and easily fixable (it's a zip file; stable luma builds are in .7z-format) and it won't extract when provided a path as destination. Sadly the errorhandling for this is bad and the log-file doesn't provide any useful info.

Greetings

    If you use a service it's still technically not your coding unless it's open source

  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    The backend code can be written in a lot of languages

    " that's just styling" fair but styling is important

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Yeah but you still need to know more then css html and js

  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    it certainly is

    yeah but i would prefer websites to not look like dogshit

  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    Why would you need more than js, html and css for a basic website? You might need sql for your database but thats about it

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If you want to truly call it your work that's why lol

    actually that makes me think what's the line between "tolerably bad" and "this is so dogshit i won't even think of using it"

    If I write all my js css and html why would the work not be mine?

    A basic site sure doesn't need it but if you want a community it's important

    But still style isn't everything when it comes to websites

    Honestly though tons of businesses rely on Apple products so eh who cares what you use

    I don't know of a professional studio recorder that doesn't use protools for example

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    using an iphone is kinda weird at times because you can tell you're supposed to be in the whole apple ecosystem thing
