UECIDE refresh button

Asked by GastonLagaffe at 12:14 on 01 Jun 2017.

Salut Matt,

let me test the new forum with a tiny feature request:

When I change the preferences or use the plugin manager, all inofrmation is refreshed after the completion of my actions: • Loading compilers... • Loading cores... • Loading boards... • Loading programmers... • Loading plugins... • Loading themes... • Loading libraries... • Updating system... • done It would be nice to have a button that does exactly that on demand. I ran into this when I tried to compile code that required some additional libraries that I copied into the library directory. I had to open preferences to force UECIDE to re-read the libraries.

A note on the forum software: A preview button next to the post button would be nice to see if I have understood the markup language correctly.

Ciao, Mathias

Mind, you can write your own plugin in Javascript now that can do it with a button on the toolbar.

If you create a file plugins/refresh.jpl in your UECIDE data directory, and fill it with:

function onBoot() {

function getMainToolbarIcons(pl, icons) {
    var ico1 = new org.uecide.JSAction(
        "Reload plugins",


function getMenuActions(pl, menu, actions) {

function refresh() {

function getVersion() {
    return "1.0.0";

you will get a new button to refresh everything.

As far as the preview thing goes - I have just identified a markup bug in the POST box at the bottom of the page (which I have kind of fixed around for now), and I need to re-write that section of the site to change how the HTML elements are arranged and generated. I will see about adding a preview button to it when I re-write it later tonight.

Salut Matt, I got the jpl (Jet Propulsion Labs? ;) file - works well.

Now that you mention it - the rebuild is in the debug section and I had forgotten to look there

Ciao, Mathias

    Javascript PLugin :wink:

    I am trying to make it so that extending UECIDE functionality is simple. I would like to be able to directly edit the plugins from within UECIDE so you can change the whole way it works on the fly.

    Eventually I'd love UECIDE to be just a script host and everything else is just a bit of Javascript. Make the whole thing 100% modular. A little too complex though to implement with the current model. Maybe UECIDE 2.0 (which will be using JavaFX for the interface) will be like that...
