Hightlighting - 23/01/2021 13:43

The "highlighter" will make its appearance with version 5.05.04.

Bernard, who has joined the development team, suggested to allow to highlight a part of the text. Indeed, he uses this in his work as a writer to mark parts of his text that do not fit in with the do not satisfy. It allows him to spot them quickly.

I'm sure others would like to have such a device, it's why the "highlighter" function has been added. How to use it? Nothing very sorcerer. In the text editor you select a part of text and then press the "Highlight" button next to it. paragraph style. The text is then highlighted in yellow.

Throughout the GUI the text will be highlighted. But what happens when exporting? You have the choice, via the menu Export > Options, of what you want to get. The alternatives are:

  • ignore the highlighting: the highlighting tags will be purely and simply ignored, the text will return to its normal appearance.
  • delete the highlighted text: the concerned text will not appear. in export.
  • leave as is: the highlighted passages will be left as is, with the same rendering.

Did you know that? - 18/12/2020 23:55

It takes 1929 files to build oStorybook, including 1874 Java files for a total of 214982 lines of code. The specific part of oStorybook consists of 623 files, including 562 Java files for a total of 72789 lines of code.

And the other files, you may ask, what do they correspond to? They are icons for example, or message files, or configuration files.

Version 5.05.00 Magyar - 02/07/2020 13:29

Integration of Magyar translation


Publication of the 5.05.00 - 01/07/2020 00:00

PUBLICATION of version 5.05.00

Most important new features:


1. Partial code rewriting

It should allow me to better manage future developments and facilitate maintenance operations and correction of bugs.


2. Modification of the database record

The choice to maintain the high-performance h2database system is evolving to store the data, outside of working hours, in a form that allows information to be retrieved without using the database engine, and therefore without oStorybook. The format is of the "SQL transaction" type, which allows the data to be imported into any compatible database (MySQL for example). This format is compressed (ZIP) in order to reduce the size of the file without altering performance when opening the file. The extension chosen is ".osbk", which eventually allows the file to be opened from a file explorer provided that the necessary system associations have been set up.

3. Creation of the Scenario mode

This is the most important change. It will allow the screenwriter to focus on the writing without worrying about the formatting of the text. For more information on this point see the online documentation at http://ostorybook.tuxfamily.org/v5/articles.php?lng=fr&pg=951 (under development).

4. Photos

The next step will be to add a Photo element that will allow you to index in oStorybook images useful as inspiration or documentation. Version 5.05.00 prepares this introduction.

Version 5.05.00 - 01/07/2020 00:00

NEWS 5.05.00 (01/07/2020)

Due to the standby of version 6 this version includes some of the new features that were already developed. Here is a summary description of these new functions.
1. Partial code rewriting

It should allow me to better manage future developments and facilitate maintenance operations and correction of bugs.
2. Modification of the database recording

The choice to maintain the high-performance h2database system is evolving to store the data, outside of working hours, in a form that allows information to be retrieved without using the database engine, and therefore without oStorybook. The format is of the "SQL transaction" type, allowing for importing into any compatible database (MySQL for example). This format is compressed (ZIP) in order to reduce the size of the file without altering performance when opening the file. The extension chosen is ".osbk", which eventually allows the file to be opened from a file explorer under the condition that the necessary system associations have been set up.
3. Creation of the Scenario mode

This is the most important change. It will allow the screenwriter to focus on the writing without worrying about the formatting of the text. For more information on this point see the online documentation at http://ostorybook.tuxfamily.org/v5/articles.php?lng=fr&pg=951 (under development).
4. Other interventions

A few corrections were made, in particular concerning the useful interface for translating oStorybook into another language (the UTF8 coding was defective). Similarly, the use of a translated version has been made easier (replacement of the "console" mode with a parameter at launch by adding a simple option in the preferences).


Version 6 and Covid19 - 18/03/2020 21:47

Let's take advantage of opportunities

As a result of the current outbreak we are under house arrest. Not sure what to do to occupy this vast free time? Of course you have your writings and imagination to develop your stories, but maybe from time to time you would like to take your mind off things. I can't offer you social activities in physical proximity, but I can offer you the opportunity to actively participate in the development of oStorybook version 6.

I am ready to release the first Alpha version. I propose you to sign up to test and develop it. There are even some new features that would deserve to be evaluated to measure their relevance and consider, why not, new ones.

For the occasion I reactivated the project on SourceForge. I give you an appointment there to take part in the work. Here is the link:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ostorybook/
Visit the project, especially the Wiki and Discussion/Forum parts. Disregard source code and downloadable files.

For those who are not writers, your participation is also welcome.
