E la storia del plugin? Si è evoluto da JOSM scripts.

Easy buildings - autunno 2016

Crediti: Sono io.

Questo è stato il primo tentativo di affrontare la mia pigrizia. Niente più di pochi clic e un tasto di scelta rapida. BuildingsTools fa il lavoro per gli edifici quadrati ma non per quelli circolari (e non li copio + li ridimensiono perché anche per me anche questo è troppo pesante) né per le zone residenziali..

Seleziona residenziale - 2017-03-28, SVĚT-HUB

We discussed Easy buildings that was not usable for @Piskvor because it does not fit to his workflow. However, he proposed some script that would make residential area around buildings on the screen. Not exactly what he wanted (buildings have to be selected before script run) but better than nothing.

Edifici in serie - 2017-09-26

Questa funzione si adatta al flusso di lavoro di @marxin - basta fare clic su tutti gli edifici dello stesso tipo quando possibile. Funziona per gruppi di edifici circolari e per gruppi di edifici ortogonali. La compatibilità con le versioni precedenti è garantita e senza grande dolore.

La novità di questa caratteristica è la collaborazione che su github lentamente si stabilisce.

Mapathoner plugin - 2018-04-24

We discussed @marxin’s contribution to JOSM that was accepted (hurray!) and the conversation goes around if the JOSM scripts could be rewritten to Java and pushed upstream also. However scripts are pretty specific so I decided to develop JOSM plugin instead.

I named the plugin Mapathoner after 3 days bad sleeping thinking about the name. I wanted to avoid direct connection to HOT or Missing Maps because of potential legal issues. And in fact - the mapathons are where we thought and discussed the scripts, where the scripts were born. Where the Mapathoner plugin was born.

A lot changed during last two days. Anywawy, the project has moved to GitLab. Thanks to @floscher, who points me out, I set up automatic builds. And, again thanks to @floscher, Mapathoner è parte di JOSM su Transifex now.

Edifici a forma di L - 2018-06-05, Pracovna

Crediti: disastermappers heidelberg membro il cui nome sto cercando di scoprire

Just after successfull presentation of Il Contributo Ceco alle Mappe Perdute that contained translations of Missing Maps web page and Highway Tag Africa, JOSM patches and the Mapathoner plugin for JOSM I discussed improvement of the Mapathoner with that guy from disastermappers heidelberg. Well, it takes too long to create L-shaped building! Or, in fact, it took.

Well, it took a little bit longer than it should. Most probably because I think it would not be easy. But why it shouldn’t be? So, now you can make residential area around buildings on the screen. No need to select them any more!

Edifici Duplicati e Non Ortogonali - 2020-10-28

I am aware of the JOSM-Scripts. And I was always thinking of how cool would it be if the JOSM-Scripts are merged to the Mapathoner plugin. Since now, we will see.

I was a little bit shy when I proposed this merge. There was no reason. The reply from Mike was kind, and he reviewed and fixed (rewrote, I should say) my naive implementation based on his code.

Non Rounded buildings - 2022-10-25

Credits: Martien, Peculiar Theater, and Taylor Smock

It started with Martien reporting bug in “Select Non Orthogonal Building” action. I fixed it with the help of Taylor. Unfortunately, I changed the default preferences. Shame on me. I know I am still learning the maintainer role, but these things must not happen.

There was a discussion about the “angle difference” problem in the #openmapping-humanitarian-validation:matrix.org channel I later joined. I noticed Peculiar’s josm-cripts and get inspired by it to implement “Select Non Rounded Buldings” action.

Around that time, I also refactored the mapathoner page a bit and moved the project to sr.ht.
