roma() - autoit Framework - (needed support)

2 posts in this topic

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>

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.

      Hello,
      Currently I am running a script that calls a powershell script. To read the results of that I am reading StdOut. I am parsing things accordingly but unfortunately it doesn't parse correctly all the time and I end up missing parts of the string or other problems. My question then is, what is the best results for reading what is returned when running a powershell script or something similar?

      I hope my title is good enough.
      I'm using the ADO UDF and I have question regarding editing SQL records with this UDF.
      The owner of the UDF suggested an idea, but maybe there is another trix.

      I have a SQL db. I would like to view the content in a control. Like a table. The control should have the option to show every 2nd line in another color. When you pick a "cell" it should pick the whole row. When you dobbelt click on the row another windows should popup with the content from the row.
      What view control can do that?
