So impressed with how quickly you acted on that suggestion!

Really appreciate being able to follow the development process on here too. Proper open source development in action

Thanks for the really fast implementation, and I can report the autoactivation works nicely on my Jolla C

Thank you very much! As for speed, its all relative. It took more than a month to get from proposal at OpenRepos, discussion over here, and implementation. Meanwhile, a launcher has been made by ferlanero clearly demonstrating the need for better user experience. I could have done it probably faster, but was busy with the client side of things. Part of my work on clients is not merged yet, but all is submitted as PRs and, hopefully, would be soon reviewed/polished/rewritten/published. In meanwhile, I can work on some other aspects.

Looks like the whole approach was also acceptable for QA of the Harbour. So, the server is available via store with the full functionality. I would like to thank Jolla's QA team for approving the server.

exactly, @rinigus! And most importantly: where is actually the donate button?

not implemented

Folks, but did you realize that Jolla Harbour approved an application that can act as a service, if requested by user? In particular, the socket activation required systemd service that is installed on users request in its home and enabled using user's permissions.

Note that, if you read Harbour FAQ, such approach seems to be in accordance with them. No special files are installed in the system, there are not scripts in RPM spec file, and so on.

Maybe its a way to provide such applications in future as well?

Yeah - I was also kinda surprised they accepted it as they are generally kinda edgy on less radical stuff. So certainly a big achievement!

Yeah - as nothing should be started until connections start coming in, it really should be fine. This is also heavily used in "normal" Linux distros such as Fedora, so the mechanism is pretty well tested and robust by now.

Yeah - I can imagine quite a few other cases where a network accessible daemon could be used to provide functionality to various client applications. Maybe for example a IM daemon the various IM apps could use as a backend as long as it's still not possible (IIRC) to really contribute improvements to the built-in messaging system (which is quite nice, but missing fat to many features and seem to be long term neglected). Or a socket activated speech to text/text to speech service apps can use, etc.

Hi, I haven't followed a lot the progress lately, but I see that everything is a LOT more user friendly! Very nice!
Unfortunately, I am not able to download maps anymore since a few releases (at least beginning of August). Here is the error I get:

Similar message for other countries (I tried Mexico). I'm with the default profile, version 1.1.0
I've seen that the correct path is geocoder-nlp-10, but do you know why I tries to reach this URL? If you don't I will just reinstall, I'm just reporting this in case there is something you'd want to fix. Thanks!

Yes, URL is changing when I upload newer maps. So, all you have to do when you get such message, is to click on

"Check for updates"

in Map Manager. Then your list of URLs will be updated, the countries that you have would be proposed for an update, and you would be able to get new ones as well.

I should make this solution easily reachable, opened an issue with it. Thank you for reporting!
