roma() - autoit Framework - (needed support)

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

I´m using AutoIt for a long time not only to automate applications but to develop complex stand-alone applications. I am particularly annoyed by the fact that the logic in AutoIt is difficult to separate from the presentation and the standard GUI elements are very inflexible. If you want to create something more sophisticated, you have to use GDI and write many lines for simple effects or animations.

With these thoughts in mind, I looked around for alternatives and unfortunately found nothing that corresponded to my ideas. Therefore, I have thought of a different solution. I have created this framework in order to separate the logic from the presentation and to use HTML & CSS in my GUI to the full extent.

Goals of the Framework

  • MVC development with AutoIt
  • HTML & CSS GUI in AutoIt
  • Better and more modern package system(UDF) like npm
  • CLI support like Laravel Artisan
  • faster and more structured application development

roma() is strongly inspired by Laravel PHP Framework so Laravel users will notice many similarities.

Support

Unfortunately, I do not have much time for the project at the moment. So I thought to myself, I share it and ask you for support.

Content

The framework primarily serves for the development of stand-alone applications.

  • All necessary settings are preconfigured. You can start immediately with the logic or the view
  • All settings are in one place
  • The logic(controller) and the presentation are clearly separated from each other
  • Development with MVC structure
  • You can develop the GUI in realTimer without restarting AutoIt
  • GUI can be developed in HTML & CSS
  • Any graphic & video integration is possible (.png, .gif etc.). Also everything that is possible in HTML5 and CSS3
  • JavaScript & Frameworks are supported
  • Debug logs are created including console output
  • It is possible to work with multiple languages
  • All UDFs are contained in the framework. Reloading is not necessary
  • The AutoIt UDFs are also included in the Framework. This ensures that it workds correctly for different Versions of AutoIt
  • The framework also provides functions that are necessary for communication between AutoIt and HTML. For example, evaluation of form data (GET & POST) (documentation for this and examples follow.)
  • I also developed a template engine. (Similar to Laravel Blade)
  • The template engine supports if statements (would like to have help to make loops possible). In the Future I will publish a complete documentation of the template engine and examples.
  • Almost finished is a database package. This makes communication with databases an absolute child's play.
  • So that was it for once. If something else occurs to me, I will update the list.

Small Example

url: http://localhost:8080/welcome
;application.au3

;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
; Initial
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
#include 'vendor\initial.au3'

func _roma_routes()
    
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    ; GET Request
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    $route_get('welcome', 'welcome')
    
endfunc
;roma\controller\welcome.au3

;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
; Welcome Controller
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
func controller_welcome()

    Local $name = 'Eduard', $lastname = 'Tschernjaew'
    
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    ; passed variable to view (Array are possible)
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    $toView('name', $name)
    $toView('lastname', $lastname)

    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    ; Return a View
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    return $VIEW('welcome')
endfunc
<html>
  <head>
    <title>roma() - Template Test</title>
  </head>
  
  <body>
    <h1>Hello {{ $name }} {{ $lastname }}</h1>
  </body>
</html>

 

Download

The framework is under the Open-Source license.
Github: https://github.com/4ern/roma/

git clone https://github.com/4ern/roma.git

or download the ZIP
Documentaion: https://github.com/4ern/roma/blob/master/README_EN.md 

ToDo

[ ] Loop Funktion in Template.au3
[ ] CLI module like Laravel Artisan
[ ] Solution approaches, how the framework can be optimally compiled, so that in the compiled state all files are available.
[ ] Framework Tests & Bugfixes

roma() is still in development. Documentation and application examples will soon be available. I am looking forward to any Contributing.

Thanks for Feedback and Contributing

Interesting project.
Unfortunately, I am involved in a few others, such as social and private (professionally).
So I'm left to watch the results of your work.

      Hi everyone.

      I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.

      Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.

      My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...

      Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?

      Thanks in advance!!!
       
      Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.

      Hi All,
      I tried my best to looking a solution from this forum or others, but I have no luck. The imagesearch dll working fine in my 64 bits machine, whenever I move the scripts to Win 7 (32 bits), it crashes. ImageSearchDLL.dll, ImageSearch.au3 and my simple scripts are in the same working directory. For win 7 (32 bits) machine, I'm using 32 bits ImageSearchdll.dll, the simple scripts as below:
      #include <ImageSearch.au3>
      Global $y = 0, $x = 0
      Local $search = _ImageSearch("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Images\mypc.PNG", 0, $x, $y, 0)
      if $search = 1 then
         MsgBox(0,"Found","Found my target here..." & $x & "," & $y)
         MouseMove($x, $y, 10)
      Else
         msgbox(0, "Not found","")
      Endif
      However, I received error message below when running the script. Anyone here got clue?
