- Comic Vineyard Online: render your list online without installing anything.
- My Comic Vineyard: an example of the current output, using multiple Comic Vine lists.
The updates in v1.1 are:
- Multiple list URLs can be passed to create one large/merged collection.
- If a list has multiple pages, we now grab and render all of 'em.
- Synchronized the docs between README.txt and index.html.
- Corrected README.txt documentation for command line usage.
- Added notes to README.txt about running it through Apache.
- All HTML pages are now fluid width instead of duping Comic Vine's fixed.
- Support "17 (4)" and "17(4)" as a way to indicate 4 owned copies of 17.
- Comment parser is a bit looser in parsing issue numbers from chaos.
- Display an error if we can't find any issue numbers in your comment.
- Display an error if the API has no data for a specified issue number.
- Bugfix: We now verify that the submitted URL looks like a Comic Vine list.
- Bugfix: If our collection is empty after parsing, we exit with an error.
- Bugfix: A range of "24-13" is now internally corrected to "13-24".
- Bugfix: Comment keys are always lowercased ("Location" vs "location").
- Bugfix: Submitted URLs are now trimmed of any whitespace.
- Bugfix: Fixed bad render filename if ?page=1 was in the URL.
- Bugfix: HTML-based error messages will now display on their own lines.
- Bugfix: The HTML-based footer of the progress page is now added.
A lot of these bugfixes and validation tweaks were found by early users of v1.0: thank you! if your original attempt to use Comic Vineyard crashed and burned horribly, give it another try as either the errors will be fixed, or at least reported so you know what might need tweaking. If things are still coming out fugly, don't hesitate to let me know and I'll help you get it right.
By far, however, the biggest improvement in v1.1 is twofold: first, lists that are longer than one page (50 volumes) are now fully parsed. Secondly, multiple lists may now be combined into one giant Comic Vineyard. For example, I have an ongoing pull list and an archived/finished list and while I can still render them individually if I want (and sometimes I do), I can also stick both URLs into Comic Vineyard and render a combined collection. In this way, I can focus on updating my ongoing titles a lot faster (without having to scroll down through 100 volumes that'll never be updated again), but still get a complete collection out of Comic Vineyard.
The goal of Comic Vineyard v1.2 will be theme improvements: I've got a lot of incremental tweaks there that should be easy to do but, because of the Cataclysm, I don't have an immediate idea of when the next release will be. Don't fret, however: keep your comments, suggestions, complaints, etc., coming, and I'll address them regardless.
