|danny__||08:06||how do i convert FB::VariantMap to an std::string ?
a variantmap is a string,variant map
a string is a string
I'm not sure I follow what you're trying to do; there is no inherent obvious conversion
can you be a bit more specific?
i am using the FB::SimpleStreamHelper::AsyncPost in the callback function there is this variable FB::VariantMap outHeaders;
i want to be able to pass the outHeaders to a JS event
|taxilian||09:06||okay; and what is the problem?|
|danny__||09:06||the event is defined as passing an std::string varibe
so there is type mismatch between std::string and FB::VariantMap
|taxilian||09:06||first of all, if you're passing a list of headers why are you trying to pass it as a streing?
|danny__||09:06||my event needs to pass a string in some cases and when there is an error i'd like to send the headers to be able to see where the error occured
so question is how to get my event to send string and headers which are strings
|taxilian||09:06||up to you, I suppose.
so all a variantmap is is a std::map<FB::variant>
do you know how to iterate through a std::map?
|danny__||09:06||not sure. can you help?|
|taxilian||09:06||.lmgt iterate through std::map|
|FireBreathBot||09:06||Let me google that for you: http://tinyurl.com/87oua5q|
|taxilian||09:06||awesome. next question; when you iterate through, each item (iter->second) will be a FB::variant
do you know how to convert that to a string?
sounds like you're there =]
and iter->first will already be a streing
grr. I hate this keyboard; if you type fast on it it actually starts adding characters that aren't there
I think I need a new one =]
ok. let me see if this works for me.

|rcompton78||09:06||Hello all, I am running into something strange with my plugin and am hoping someone can shed some light on something
I want to do a few cleanup things on plugin shutdown (StatidDeinit) and I am noticing that it does not always get through it all. Depending on how long things take, the function just stops with no exception at all. My first thought was that chrome main thread was shutting down thus killing all the children threads (plugins..etc). Is this possible?
chrome runs your plugin in a seperate process
if you take too long to shut down it'll just kill you
you have to remember that your plugin is a guest in someone else's process; if it doesn't like you, it will kill you
|rcompton78||09:06||ahh thats what I thought. Any way you can think to get around this?? The problem is that I have some 3rd party DLL's loaded a few of them take windows a little while to unload.
just let it die?? It will get unloaded when chrome shuts down anyway but I would obviously prefer to do it myself
btw, if you remember last summer you worked for a few days with a Marwan Hilmi (Curvedental). I was the lead dev on the plugin project for curve (Richard Compton). I want to thank you for your help and firebreath.
|taxilian||09:06||if Chrome kills your process then the DLLs will be unloaded at that point immediately anyway
cool; I wondered how that project went
still going strong?
|rcompton78||09:06||ya I figured that|
|taxilian||09:06||the only way I know of to ensure that you aren't killed early is to launch your own process, but that gets dicy with IPC|
|rcompton78||09:06||yes its out of beta and gone commercial for our web based dental imaging software. You are a life saver :)|
|rcompton78||09:06||ya I also started down that road and pulled out lol
I am ok with the defacto unloading. I will just fly through my other non dll tear down tasks
|taxilian||09:06||another thing you could truy doing is to unload it earlier; you could use reference counting to unload when the last instance of the plugin closes
the disadvantage is you may be unloading and then loading again between pages in some cases
but it may give you more leeway there
|rcompton78||09:06||Anyway thanks for your help before and now. Again a life saver. If you need anything from us (tester, review) let me know|
|taxilian||09:06||I appreciate that. If you find some spare time and want to go over some of the pull requests and try them out that would be a help =]
I have been swamped lately
|rcompton78||09:06||ahh good idea. I will try that. One of the kodak DLL's we load takes forever to load and unload so I might try preload that one and leave it up and then do what you said with the others.|

|taxilian||09:06||I'm way behind =]
that's definitely a thought
|rcompton78||09:06||UNderstandable. I don't know how you keep up lol. I will get a few devs here to have a look the odd time when we have a few days (hackathons and such). haha love the bot. I will use that to check some requests out :)
thanks for your time. If we get a pull code reviewed and tested, should I email you or come on here or s there a direct git method you would prefer?
|taxilian||09:06||email works, here works
there are also a lot of bug reports in jira
so if you can repro and help find fixes there that'd also be helpful
suprisingly few (right now almost none) are willing to dig into the actual firebreath code
so bugs tend to pile up until I can get to them
things that directly affect me and my plugins tend to get done first for some reason =]
|rcompton78||09:06||haha no idea why. How did that async upload project work out for you. You were working on some fancy uploader
for sure. It will be good for us to get into the FB underbelly
Anyway I am off. Thanks for your help. I have forwarded an email about giving back to FB during down times and hackathons at curve to the CTO. I will also try have a peak the odd time too. Thanks again for all your work
|taxilian||10:06||eh, it went okay, but I think Facebook just decided there were too many things that could go wrong with a plugin
I'm on to more interesting things now
|rcompton78||10:06||I can imagine. Plugins are needed but raises the complexity a few level to say the least. But IMO with there is a growing need for plugins today. Google Nacl is a good example of a company believing need to run native code in a browser. So you have done well. Best framework I researched.
|taxilian||10:06||off to the office; be back soon|
|EL45||17:06||Hey taxilian, I am unable to make it to the IRC logs. http://logs.firebreath.org/ just shows me the homepage. Is that the same for you?|
|taxilian||17:06||I probably broke it. thanks for letting me know, I'll fix it|
|EL45||17:06||No problem. Thanks!|
