Calf Studio Gear: Style Selection

Freitag, den 26. Juni 2015

Calf got a function in preferences to select its style. As a first use case I backported the 0.0.19 style so everyone unhappy with the fresh design can choose to look at ancient times again.

* New: selectable styles
    * 2 initial styles: default (new) and 0.0.19 (old)
    * Default style with slightly changed graphics
    * Lots of style depending values configurable in gtkrc
    * Image_factory generating style-depending pixbufs
    * Real transparency, gtkrc border-radius and bevel for:
      ComboBox, LineGraph, PhaseGraph, LevelMeter, Button,
      ToggleButton, RadioButton
    * Faders images as sprites
    * Lots of bug fixes, layout quirks and rendering improvements
    * Missing: color of line graph vector drawings (background is custom colored though)

MySQL Databases with Countries, Borders and Cities

Mittwoch, den 30. Januar 2013

Actually I’m coding some web apps for my new employer and I needed a couple of geo information to build on. Since it took some time to create the database from different sources I would like to share them with the rest of the world. (Click on the header for download)

Database: countries

ID | name | code_2 | code_3 | code_num | area | population | region | subregion | latitude | longitude

  • „code_2“ is a two char country code
  • „code_3“ is a three char country code
  • „code_num“ is the numerical UN code
  • „area“ is the expanse of the country
  • „population“ is from 2005
  • „region“ is the UN region code – mainly the continent
  • „subregion“ is the UN subregion code

Table: cities

ID | latitude | longitude | name | country

  • „country“ is the ID of the corresponding country
There may be some „minor“ cities in this database because of my special scope.

Table: coords

ID | country | coords | coords2

  • „country“ is the ID of the corresponding country
  • „coords“ is a comma and whitespace separated list of lat/lon for generating polygons (e.g. to create imagemaps in HTML) with up to 16 digits
  • „coords2“ is like coords but with reduced accuracy with only 3 digits max

The sources are mainly „free4all“ except the border coordinates, they’re from thematicmapping.com which means that the table „coords“ is released under CC-SA. Everything else is released under the DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO LICENSE
