    [forge-dev] New shell feedback

    Ivan St. Ivanov Novice

      Hi folks,

       

      As I promised, here is a short feedback about the new

      Forge 2 shell. As some of you know, I use Windows (Really? OK...). So I

      will be very happy to help you solve the issues besides merely reporting

      them:

       

      • The history doesn't work. That is, when you press up and down arrows

      instead of the previous commands, you get this: αH

       

      • Backspace doesn't work. When I press it, the cursor just comes back to

      the previous position without deleting the character there. If I just write

      something there, the old symbol is overwritten by the new one, but at the

      end after pressing enter it looks like you never entered anything after

      pressing backspace. For example:

        1) I write new-project --namek

        2) I notice the typo and press backspace

        3) k doesn't get deleted, but I overwrite it with d

        4) Then I complete my command to look like this: *new-project --named

      test*

        5) Forge's output is: Project name must be specified.

       

      • As you know on windows the full path to a file or directory is

       

        1) If I try to do cd c:\temp\forge, Forge blows with exception:

      org.jboss.forge.addon.resource.ResourceException: can

      have no

      children

              at

      org.jboss.forge.addon.resource.AbstractFileResource.getChild(Abstract

      FileResource.java:78)

      r.java:232)

        2) Somehow I noticed that I may use the paths without the drive letter,

      e.g. just \. It is legal to do it in Windows, but thus you

      can't change to a directory located on a different drive. For example cd

      \temp\forge will change to c:\temp\forge if you are currently in c:. So I

      tried cd \temp\forge, but the result was the same .

        3) If I am in the root directory (c:\) and I run cd temp\forge, I don't

      get exception, but ***ERROR** tempforge\: No such file or directory*. The

      interesting thing is that I ran that command by pressing tab, i.e. counting

      on the command completion of the shell, which obviously works fine.

       

        I made the cd command work by just running cd /temp/forge (notice the

      forward slashes)

       

       

      If you wish, I may add these observations as JIRA items, probably as

      children to this one: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/FORGE-1387. Bear in

      mind that all the reported features work in Forge 1 even on Windows

       

      We can discuss these in today's meeting.

       

      Cheers,

      Ivan
