Windows 10 App

Postby Strifex » Sun Jul 12, 2015 12:38 am

Is anyone working on or thinking of working on a Windows 10 app for reading light novels using Baka Tsuki? Otherwise, I'm considering starting development on one sometime in the near future. Let me know your thoughts and what you'd like to see.

Hi

I'm on typescript/cordova app. Work on android, probably on IOS and windows phone.

you can found here my sources => https://github.com/Masclaux/LightReader

Actually I'm not satisfied of my source code and the framework I using is discontinued. I'm working hardly too find other technologies and rewrite some part .

Maybe a good start point for you.


PS: actually it work only with visual studio 2013 update 4.

If you wish to start development on a windows 10 app, i would be more than happy to help you with that. I worked a bit trying to create a baka-tsuki app for windows phone 8.1, but i haven't worked on it in a while because of the start of my summer. What language would you be using? Most of my experience lies in c#, but i probably can adapt.

Hi no problems you're welcome.

Actually i'm made a huge clean on code base( rename crappy class etc etc ).

I'm started to implement winjs template :http://try.buildwinjs.com. Commit this weekend ( if i'm return safe to my bike road trip ;) )

Like you i'm ( a lot ) better in .net and if I choose cordova + typescript app it's because I have a windows phone and an android tab.

okay, over the next few days i will review the repository, and see if i can't make out how the program works so far. Since this is currently just a test universal application, i take it the look and feel of the application doesn't matter as much as the functionality?

Hi,
I am interested in helping out in the project if it is possible, I have some experience in DotNet and C# but willing to learn others.
Thanks

HI

Sorry for my late reply ( forget password at work).

Everyone is welcome :)

I'm not a typescript expert too ^^

Repository location => https://github.com/Masclaux/LightReader

You can found my previous project here => https://github.com/Masclaux/LightReader_Old . The old project is more advanced but, I didn't like my project structure (and the use of Swiss army knife framework).

Hi, I've created an API for parsing and pulling the BT mediawiki data here : https://baka-tsuki-api.herokuapp.com/

Would love to see it used and get more feedback on how to polish it. It's currently also being used by AzSiAz to create an iOS app.

Edit: I'm thinking of using NodeJS to write a universal app and then publish using node-webkit and phonegap, but that'll have to wait until my holidays and ZNT translations backlog :P

wow, someone is actually working on fixing the API. Wonderful day indeed :D. The way it was set up was kind of unpleasant/cumbersome.

Nice good to see that !

If you search for a Phonegap app we are working on it. :)

For your API we can make a test. Actually we have your own parser but, Lightreader project can use multi-parser ( if i can avoid develop parser i'm Happy:) ) .

Last, does your api is stable ? does he have a good uptime ? OpenSource ?

Edit: The server accidentally misinterpreted that I was going to edit alex's answer.
He said that he could test my api and had their own parser, but Light reader would require a parser.
Currently it is pretty stable (I don't plan to change features in the near future until it's time for version 2.0).
I'm aiming for full coverage, and until now (at least from what I hear from the person developing the iOS app) the API only has partial problems for only 4 titles.
The only thing lacking now is documentation (which I'm working on now) and hosting options.

But Light reader would require a parser.


Yes but, no need to parse HTML. Just get data.

[...] hosting options


Maybe contact administrator.

I'm getting HTML from the mediawiki api to extract data.

Sample JSON response here (from https://baka-tsuki-api.herokuapp.com/ap ... volumeno=1)
Note: I'm using http://jsonprettyprint.com/ to pretty print the data, so the unicode characters have been encoded. The original response is decoded.

Together with his old friends Fukube Satoshi and Ibara Mayaka, as well as with the elegantly ladylike and curiously inquisitive Chitanda Eru, the newly reformed Classics Club ends up finding themselves involved in all sorts of mystery-solving escapades. Houtarou quickly learns that life in the Classics Club, just as Tomoe had promised, would be an interesting one indeed.\nAnd so begins the \"Classics Club Series\".\nAdapted into an anime series by Kyoto Animation in 2012 under the title \"Hyouka\".\n",
