|dougma||01:05||i will try to repro that FIREBREATH-176 one later this evening|
|FireBreathBot||01:05||FIREBREATH-176: Summary: Memory leak: Multiple references to one JSAPIAuto
FIREBREATH-176: Assigned To: richard
FIREBREATH-176: Priority: Minor, Status: Open, http://jira.firebreath.org/browse/FIREBREATH-176
|FireBreathBot||07:05||JIRA issue http://jira.firebreath.org/browse/FIREBREATH-179 issue created by ronhab|
|dougma||07:05||wow, async drawing!
once again confirming my suspicion that the npapi specification is "what flash does"
yeah, I've been watching that one and am a little surprised it's already up
need to figure out how best to work that into FireBreath; I really want to redo how the drawing models all work :-/
|dougma||07:05||yeah it's tricky.
if i really cared about firefox i might be interested. :/
do you know what webkit thinks of this async drawing?
|taxilian||07:05||let me look
I have the convo history
adobe approves of it, which probably means everyone will eventually adopt it
apple isn't terribly concerned about it; they consider it redundant on mac
|dougma||07:05||my draw perf on firefox is especially laggy so this would be the way to fix it.|
|taxilian||07:05||yeah. if you have any time you could look at any of the jira issues, btw, I would really appreciate it. there are relatively few anymore who understand any of the inner workings of firebreath
and I just don't have time right now to do much
|dougma||07:05||yeah i just sat down to look at 176. can't say i've noticed it myself but will try harder. :)|
|taxilian||07:05||I have never seen it either, but if you can try to see if you can figure out what is going on that would be fantastic
"From the Chrome team, we have concerns about this API. Primarily, we are concerned that it will not be possible to sandbox the DirectX usage. While it obviously true that ordinary windowed plugins cannot be sandboxed either, due to their usage of HWNDs, we would prefer to see improvements that enable sandboxing."
hard to say if they will do it or not given that
|FireBreathBot||07:05||JIRA issue http://jira.firebreath.org/browse/FIREBREATH-179 issue commented by richard "Hmm. We're going to have to think about how best to support this. It would be nice to add an ab..."|
|dougma||07:05||now to play with this wacky "github for windows" thing :)|
|taxilian||07:05||hehe. let me know how it works|
|reichi||07:05||somehow i don't trust that thingy
(github for win)
|taxilian||07:05||lol. I use git extensions on windows, but github for win only recently came out. github for mac is not bad|
|reichi||07:05||well i don't trust any git guy :/|
|taxilian||07:05||though I usually use GitX otherwise
reichi: lol. why is that?
|reichi||07:05||egit (eclipse git) did too much bad things to me
and my git stuff
some day i dropped it
and decided to stick to the original console git
|dougma||07:05||perhaps git guis need tooltips showing the git command line behind the button. :)|
|reichi||07:05||that would be nice|
|taxilian||07:05||egit is terrible. there are a few decent ones, though
usually I just use it to help me commit more easily
like dougma said
one of my most basic problems is
that i sometimes just want to know what that gui thing will when i click that little button
(git command wise)
it's not much of an issue anymore ;)
|taxilian||07:05||I would never use a gui instead of command line
just as a supplement sometimes =]
|reichi||07:05||since my old hobby is my "new" job now
i am developing almost only on linux
|dougma||07:05||nice. i am now spreading myself thinner: onto iOS!|
|reichi||07:05||i guess developing ON an iOS device is very inconvenient ;)|
|dougma||07:05||heh! luckily not that!|
|taxilian||07:05||heh. I just made a little app w/ a UIWebView that looks like it has a plugin running in it
even though it doesn't
it floats the video over the div in question from behind the uiwebview
|taxilian||07:05||pretty cool, actually|
|dougma||07:05||considered similar things. :)|
|taxilian||07:05||the method for communicating from the uiwebview to obj c is definitely less clean than JSAPI, but it's not worth the trouble to add JSAPI support to the hack
|reichi||07:05||hack the hack to be less hackish?
|taxilian||08:05||well, hacks are sometimes less annoying if they are a) consistent and b) have a non-hackish interface|
|reichi||08:05||i am still fighting qt embedded|
|taxilian||08:05||it's kinda like putting a velvet cover on an old grungy chair, I think
if you don't look real close the chair looks nice
|dougma||08:05||after hacking around browser plugins, I think anything is fair game these days
all hacks considered
do you know what the common practice (phonegap) is to communicate from a uiwebview to objective c?
|dougma||08:05||i did investigate how that would work
changing the url right?
|taxilian||08:05||most do it in an iframe, but yeah|
|taxilian||08:05||you set a url to notify it "hey, there are commands in the buffer, read them!"
it was pretty cool, actually
|dougma||08:05||i did read also that you can get to the webkit objects, but of course that will prevent entry into the app store|
|taxilian||08:05||likely so, yes|
|taxilian||08:05||likelyi that you can get tot he objects, definite that it would keep you from the store
|Valo||08:05||I'm facing a problem regarding threading inside firebreath
I'm using boost thread
in my thread, theres winsock that transmit udp packet every 2.5 sec
when I reload the web page the plugin crashed
firefox no problem
I use thread.interrupt and thread.join in API destructor
|dougma||08:05||was the api destructor invoked?
where was the crash?
Dyblast: about fb-176
|dougma||08:05||i've been playing with DUplicateTest|
|dougma||08:05||so i created TestAPI objects and they all get cleaned up when i navigate away from the page
so all is good?
|Dyblast||08:05||yes there is no problem with that
the problem is
if you create 100 000 objects (for example)
you return multiple times these objects to JS side
even if after there is no references in js to these objects
they are stucks
|Dyblast||08:05||if you return it one time... no problem|
|dougma||08:05||yeah i see if i remove the object from the dom they go with it.
so plugin host holding onto them
this a video showing the issue
and the "fix"
you click one time on unique .. no problem after GC the object is free
you click multiple time on unique .. after the GC the object is not free
I was a "bit" quick on the video.
|dougma||08:05||one moment while i telecharge|
|Dyblast||08:05||use pause :)|
|dougma||09:05||ok, so i can reproduce :)|
|taxilian||09:05||dougma: the weird thing is that it shouldn't be happening because it shouldn't be creating a new NPObject for each instance|
|dougma||09:05||yeah i'm just trying to understand how it goes from jsobject to npobject|
|FireBreathBot||09:05||Found 1 matching file(s) in the master branch. First 1 are:|
|dougma||09:05||well that's exactly the problem taxilian|
|Dyblast||09:05||at the second return .. the makeNPVariant should not be called?|
|taxilian||09:05||makeNPVariant should always be called
however, host->getJSAPIWrapper should always return the same object for a given JSAPI object
|Dyblast||09:05||so retain is always called|
|taxilian||09:05||hmm. good point. let me look at this again
that might be the problem right there; why did that call not show up in my grep?
grep! You have failed me!
|reichi||09:05||maybe you failed the grep?|
|reichi||09:05||oh wait no, I'm sorry!|
|Dyblast||09:05||so i'm not crazy finally ?|
|taxilian||09:05||well, you're not wrong about the leak
that doesn't mean you aren't crazy, though
|taxilian||09:05||I think it's still too early to judge on that one
reichi, for example, usually has good points, but he's still crazy as a loon
|taxilian||09:05||I mean, he just suggested that *I* might have made a mistake
'can you believe that?
|reichi||09:05||you gotta be kidding|
|Dyblast||09:05||taxilian: good point|
|reichi||09:05||i am a uncrazy as human kind can possibly ever be!|
|taxilian||09:05||hmm. it's starting to come back to me
this might be a little tricky. dougma, do you understand the flow of what is going on at this point?
|reichi||09:05||you have written a cross-plat-browser-form-npapi framework|
|dougma||09:05||no. stepping through.|
|reichi||09:05||and call me crazy?
is just made it work without x11 ;)
|taxilian||09:05||reichi: nice work|
|reichi||09:05||(yet no graphics though)
it's more a hack
for my platform
|taxilian||09:05||dougma: if you have questions let me know. I think I see what is going on, but I'm having a hard time thinking through how to fix it|
|dougma||09:05||there's a lot of retention going on!|
|taxilian||09:05||heh. it's a little odd
but I think I see the issue
I don't suppose you ahve skype and want to talk this over with me?
I want to make sure I've thought through this change
|dougma||09:05||actually i'm going to bed soon|
|taxilian||09:05||*sigh*. fair enough. I'll talk it through with someone else|
|dougma||09:05||however, this is relevant to my interest so will pursue tomorrow|
|reichi||09:05||timezones are something really crazy|
|dougma||09:05||or... catch up tomorrow|
|taxilian||09:05||reichi: tell me about it
dougma: hopefully I'll have it fixed by then
I think I know how to fix it, I'm just trying to make sure that I've thought through all the cases
|reichi||09:05||well there's earth, and sun and....|
|dougma||09:05||i can certainly test tomorrow
|dougma||09:05||still here... my midnight fix: delete https://github.com/firebreath/FireBreath/blob/master/src/NpapiCore/NPVariantUtil.h#L211
tell me i'm not thinking straight and i'll go to bed
|taxilian||09:05||that's 1/2 of the fix, yes|
|dougma||09:05||but only on returned things...?|
that way it only retains when it creates
|dougma||09:05||this will be a good thing to fix. :)
really crashing now though. g'night
so I need to fix something else first, but I should have a fix pretty soon for you
for you to test
|jshanab||12:05||Is there a cross platform way to change the cursor when over the plugin in FireBreath?|
|emicastro1||12:05||any link or information about compiling the plugin to 64-bit browsers?|
|taxilian||13:05||jshanab: no there isnt'
emicastro1: on which platform?
|taxilian||13:05||just use prep2010x64 and it'll build for 64 bit instead of 32
wix may not work correctly
but the rest should just work
|emicastro1||13:05||ok, what is wix?|
|taxilian||13:05||if you don't know you probably don't care =] its' the tool firebreath supports by default to generate an msi installer|
|emicastro1||13:05||:) oh! Next step in that I have to work! :)
thank you taxilian
|Alex_I_||16:05||my plugin doesn't receive even NPP_GotFocus() :)|
|taxilian||16:05||firebreath plugin or npapi plguin?
I dont' think NPP_GotFocus has been implemented by anything yet
|Alex_I_||16:05||npapi; just funny|
|taxilian||16:05||that's a very new API
very very new
|taxilian||16:05||Firefox 13 *might* have support for it|
|Alex_I_||16:05||I have now http://codepad.org/rsebSqCP but no keyboard events I could get
http://codepad.org/DYFWRJdz that's what I have
your plugin is (unless you've changed this and I'm not seeing it) a windowed plugin
I see your winproc now
did you click on the plugin before trying to type?
|Alex_I_||16:05||http://codepad.org/KtdB7qgg with less crap posted
no idea even where to click; I clicked on the black window, that's for sure
|taxilian||16:05||I don't know, then; I'd have to play with it|
|Alex_I_||16:05||and held Tab key for while it skipped all items on the window also
"I" - you must mean - I :) ; otherwise http://alexi.xtreemhost.com/files/_minor/plugins/browser/npflashx/____.zip
