roma() - autoit Framework - (needed support)

3 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.

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.

      Good day to the members of the forum.. 
      Is there any UDF that is available to automate Attachmate Extra Mainframe sessions?
      I am trying to automate mainframe processes. I couldn't get values from particular co-ordinates in mainframe or pass values to particular co-ordinates in mainframe.
      Please let me know if there is any UDF or any other kind of solution is available. 
      Thanks and regards,
      Gowrisankar R.

      I've made this HTTP lib to simplify HTTP requests, mainly when dealing about POST data or file uploads.
      Three functions are available:
      string _HTTP_Get ( string $sURL ) string _HTTP_Post ( string $sURL , string $sPostData ) string _HTTP_Upload ( string $sURL , string $sFilePath , string $sFileField , string $sPostData = '' , string $sFilename = Default) Additionaly, two helper functions are also available:
      URLEncode($sStr) URLDecode($sStr) Full documentation: https://github.com/jesobreira/HTTP.au3/blob/master/README.md

      I have an Autoit-based client GUI that uses a single MS SQL Server database. I have no problem connecting to and executing queries against this database from my AutoIT code, with the below exception:
      One of the database's stored procedures I need to execute requires a parameter that is a table. I've set up the appropriate table_type on the database and everything works fine on the database itself when I execute the stored proc with a table variable for the parameter (no AutoIT involved). The problem is that I can't figure out how to pass a table parameter from AutoIT, assuming it's even possible. The code below shows the two methods I've tried, both methods return a RecordSet object that is at EOF.
      #include <Array.au3> Opt("MustDeclareVars", 0) $sDBSrv = "ITSQL01.domain.com" $sDBName = "INVDEV" $sADOName = "ADODB.Connection" $oSQLConn = ObjCreate($sADOName) $sConnStr = "Driver={SQL Server};Server=" & $sDBSrv & ";Database=" & $sDBName & ";Trusted_Connection=yes;" $oSQLConn.Open ($sConnStr) $rsoFacFriendly = $oSQLConn.Execute("SELECT TOP 5 FriendlyName FROM Facility") If Not $rsoFacFriendly.EOF Then $aFacFriendly = $rsoFacFriendly.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aFacFriendly) $rsoSPResults = $oSQLConn.Execute("EXEC spTableParameterPassTest " & $aFacFriendly) Select Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = False MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "not end of file") $aSPResults = $rsoSPResults.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aSPResults) Case IsObj($rsoSPResults) = 0 MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "rso isn't even an object") Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = True MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "At end of file") Case Else MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "Something else happened") EndSelect $rsoSPResults = 0 $rsoSPResults = $oSQLConn.Execute("EXEC spTableParameterPassTest " & $rsoFacFriendly) Select Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = False MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "not end of file") $aSPResults = $rsoSPResults.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aSPResults) Case IsObj($rsoSPResults) = 0 MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "rso isn't even an object") Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = True MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "At end of file") Case Else MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "Something else happened") EndSelect $rsoSPResults = 0 $rsoFacFriendly = 0 $oSQLConn.Close $oSQLConn = 0 Exit
