You might struggle, maybe due to the tar.gz file size, but also because 
of the time taken to uncompress so many files. It's hard to tell unless 
you give it a go.

Re: Referencing/closing tickets in commit messages not working? 2 years ago

And just to put a bow on it, a re-test of the private repo with private
tracker with both now referenced in a private project worked too.

Oops, no, this repo and traker didn't have a project (it does now). 🤦

I just did another test with the repo that I previously used and that
already has a project, and it worked, thanks!

Cheers,

Ian

Hey Adnan,

I just gave it a go, pushing to a `develop` branch on a private repo, it
didn't close the referenced ticket in the private tracker.

Just in case the feature only works for the default branch, I then
merged `develop` into `master` locally and pushed to sr.ht. This too did
not result in the ticket getting closed. 🤷

Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers,

Ian

Hmm, I think maybe we're at the point of needing to create a ticket?

Do you agree Drew?

If so, which tracker, git.sr.ht, todo.sr.ht, or somewhere else?

Thanks,

Ian

I tried this feature for the first time today, and it did not work for me either.

Both the git repo and tracker are in my account.

My commit[1] message was as follows, finishing with an "Implements: ..." line:

~~~
Complete Add Snippet screen.

This includes validating a new abbreviation before allowing it to be added.

Tag 0.3.0? 2 years ago

From Ian M. Jones to ~adnano/kiln-discuss

Hi Adnan,

I was just wondering, do you think kiln 0.3.0 is ready for release?

Selfishly, I'd love to see kiln 0.3.0 tagged so that it would eventually 
update the nixpkgs version, currently at 0.2.1. At the moment I have to 
use an overlay on NixOS to use 0.3.0, which is a little clunky in 
comparison to using a released version.

If there's anything blocking 0.3.0 being released, is there anything I 
can do to help?

Cheers,

Re: Seeking feedback for kiln 0.3.0 2 years ago

From Ian M. Jones to ~adnano/kiln-discuss

Hey Adnan,

I've been using kiln via the master branch for a long time now. So over
the last few months I've used everything proposed for 0.3.0, right up
to having just published with 0.3.0-alpha-1-g3e1683e.

I've been building/installing it locally, and via builds.sr.ht when
publishing.

Everything has been working great, once I completed the updates to my
templates needed for the changes of course. 😉

So it's a big thumbs up from me for 0.3.0! 👍
