Post Which plug-ins / packages do you deem worth packaging?
Hi,

I a am in the process of updating the Yorick packages available from Debian GNU/Linux (which impacts derivatives) and MacPorts.

Which plug-ins or packages would you like to see available from these repositories? Some are very specialized or have a very fast development cycle, does it make sense to package them? Do you know other packages which I should be packaging as well?

Debian and Macports both have has the following plug-ins:
  • yorick-av - write movies in various popular formats (OGG, MP4, DivX ;-) ...)
  • yorick-cubeview - view 3D FITS files
  • yorick-gl - OpenGL 3D graphics
  • yorick-gyoto - General relativistic orbit computation and ray-tracing
  • yorick-hdf5 - read/write HDF5 files (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-imutil - utilities for image processing
  • yorick-ml4 - Matlab 4 file format I/O (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-mpeg - write MPEG1 movies (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-optimpack - many-parameter model fitting (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-soy (1.2.01, 1.3 is not free) - sparse matrix operations (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-spydr - FITS image viewer
  • yorick-svipc - SysV InterProcess Communication
  • yorick-yao - adaptive optics simulator
  • yorick-yeti (and yeti_*) - many compiled utilities (upcoming for MacPorts)
  • yorick-yutils - interpreted utilities
  • yorick-z - zlib, PNG, JPEG

In addition, Debian has the following, which MacPorts still lack (not sure whether I will package them all, please vote):
  • yorick-curses - interface to the (n)curses library
  • yorick-mira - interferometric image reconstruction

Regards, Thibaut.

yorick-z is very nearly a requirement. It is a separate package merely because libz is not provided on some of the platforms I need to support.

I vote for yorick-gl as well, despite some serious problems and a stalled development. It crashes the OS on Mac 10.5 and possibly later, but I believe it works under Debian.

I believe yorick-mpeg is broken, at least on most platforms (I don't know about Debian).

The maintainers of the other packages should advise you about them.

Thanks for your answer, Dave.

yorick-mpeg works out of the box on Debian. On Mac OS, it worked almost out of the box too. I simply had to
  • #define HAVE_OSX in config.h (it would be best if it wasn't #undef'ed by default, so that one could simply put -DHAVE_OSX in PKG_CFLAGS)
  • set PKG_DEPLIBS to libavcodec/libavcodec.a instead of -Llibavcodec -lavcodec
Regards.

Two new plug-ins have reached Debian and MacPorts:

  • yorick-gyoto - General relativistic orbit computation and ray-tracing
  • yorick-svipc - SysV InterProcess Communication (multiprocess parallel computing)
