COVID-19 Watcher 1.0.0

Post by gregoryMJM »

No need to leave the basement! You can now track COVID-19 infection statistics on your trusted Atari ST/TT/Falcon.

COVID-19 Watcher works on any ST-compatible computer with any operating system (TOS 1.0 should do just fine, just as MagiC or MiNT), any resolution (including TT-Low or other weird ones) and any number of colors. Requires STinG for Internet connection. Displays the number of infected, dead and recovered cases worldwide. The data is provided by Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) via RapidAPI.

Appears to be written with GFA v3.7. It's as easy as changing the library and rebuilding it. Perhaps the author needs my assistance to get it working on the firebee. :wink:

Cool little application. All it needs now is a country filter.

Yep, GFA 3.7 and GBE 1.72. Thanx for all the work you've put into GBE!

The filter is already there. Well, almost. If you want data for a specific country, you need to edit the covid.inf file:

CTRY:Greece

...will display data for Greece. Country names are case sensitive. If you need data for USA, use CTRY:US.

Nice app!
As already asked ...
Is it possible to rebuild it also for the FiewBee?

Covid.app should run on Firebee. Let me know if it does!

It's update time :)

Version 1.0.1 has a reduced memory usage, some internal changes and bug fixes: the window no longer disappears after lowering the resolution, and the update detection should actually work instead of crashing when detecting an update. Coldfire binary included.

Would it be difficult to add a drop down menu for selecting country filter? Forgive my ignorance :)

Somebody should make news about this app to firebee.org.

I'm working on an update and I'll add a way to choose the country in a separate preferences window. Unfortunately, TOS does not support scrollable drop down menus or popup menus. New AESes do, but I want to maintain maximum backward compatibility, the app should work even on a basic ST model from 1985, if you plug NetUSBee to the cartridge port.

That would be a pro feature for selected subscribers only! :)

Feel free to reuse any code added recently to cops to work around the same problem. Implementation is mainly in https://github.com/freemint/cops/blob/master/popup.c and you need some detection code like in https://github.com/freemint/cops/blob/c ... rsc.c#L130

The functions are designed to implement popups that are required by the CPX interface, and use either AES functions if supported, or WDIALOG (if installed), or otherwise custom fallback functions that work on older TOS.
