"SimpleFeatures" Plugin - Version 1.0.11
« on: May 01, 2011, 12:54:03 AM »
Hi All!

Due to other commitments, I am sorry to say that I will be discontinuing SimpleFeatures GUI. It was fun while it lasted!

There is now a spinoff maintained by Bonienl called "Dynamix". It's based off the old SimpleFeatures, however Bonienl has put a lot of work into it to add further features.

I will eventually be re-creating the iTunes Server plugin, and a few others based on what I need.

Thanks for all of the support and kind words.


I've always wanted these features implemented, but didn't really find anything simple enough for my needs. This is a plugin for the general user, who just want pretty (but functional) stuff, with none of the complexities. There are many packages to choose from - and they all add to the functionality of unRAID. Bergware (bonienl) has been actively coding on this project too, much appreciated!

Download from Google Code: Download SimpleFeatures
Requires unRAID Version 5 rc11 and above.

Features:

 • Revamp GUI - Really improve the look and function of the stock gui.
 • Web Server - host websites from unRAID in this fully fledged lighttp server plugin!
 • iTunes Server - iTunes server for unRAID. Share your music over the network.
 • Stats - Gorgeous stats on drive usage, network, CPU and more.
 • Log Viewer - Real-time viewing of logs in a great GUI.
 • Active Streams - see who's watching what!
 • Activity Monitor - see what's doing what!
 • Cache Dirs - Cache directories in ram to make browsing fast.
 • Disk Health - Check on the health of your hard drives, and run disk tests.
 • Preclear - Pre-clear disks in the gui. NOT INCLUDED ANYMORE
 • DNS Server - Host your own DNS server.
 • Email Notifications - Get notifications if something goes wrong.
 • System Profiler - Get information on your unRAID hardware.
 • Sleep - Put your system to sleep, and automate it too!

Let me know what other features you might be wanting.

Install Instructions:
Quote

If you're migrating from an earlier version (before version 1.0.5), MAKE BACKUP OF FLASH DRIVE AS YOUR SETTINGS WILL BE DELETED!!!

For upgrade from 1.0.4 or below, you need to remove:

  • /boot/extra/simpleFeatures* files
  • /boot/config/plugins/simpleFeatures/ folder

Your server must have internet connectivity to download the required files for the packages (check your DNS)!

1. Download the "SimpleFeatures Plugins" zip from our Google Code page. Choose the plugins you wish to install. The Base package is required for all other packages to run.

2. Create folder called "plugins" inside the root folder of the flash drive - "/boot/plugins"

3. Copy in the plugins (must have .plg extension) you wish to have installed.

4. Reboot. If it looks funny, please clear your browser cache!

I would love to see these as individual packages rather then one big one.
All accessible from google code.
Then they can be updated or extended individually.
From what I saw of the smart check one, I would like to see a button to grab the whole log
or do initiate a short or long test.

What about the ability to disable or enable certain features? I don't want to make management of packages a chore, as I'm doing this in my spare time.

Can add those features though, quite easy. In terms of the Smart Tests, does the array need to be offline? I'm thinking that the array should offline before the long test, with an estimated time of finish.

Can you add the total array size and total used and total free to your stats page? so one can instantly see the total size of the array along with info on total used space and total free .

Also im getting an error below when going to the Stats page (im using both simpleFeatures along with your new webGui)

Code: [Select]
Warning: Division by zero in /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/simpleFeatures/DiskStats.php on line 107
fyi, my go file loads your webgui first then the simpleFeatures addon

Nice work by the way! the new gui really makes unRAID look professional.

EDIT: the error appears to have disappeared now that my Parity sync has finished. hope that helps in your tracking down the cause of the error :)

Cheers for the help. Found the error, will be fixed in next version.

Have math & css sorted for total size of array. See screenshot:

Will have key in the final version. Gray means space left (will show that in key). Green means space used. Orange is the size of parity. The size of the bars are relational to the size and amount of disks in the array.

Any other suggestions?

maybe add at the bottom of the graph, a Total Array Size: 9TB, Used: 4.35TB, Free: 4.63TB. or something nice like that.


I have to hand it to you, your skin is very slick. really helps one sell unraid to other people looking at getting a media server.


could you have a toggle to turn on "per disk" used space and freespace? and that text sit on the color like this?

RED=GREY :D

------------------------------------------------------
|                              USED:8GB || FREE:2GB   |
------------------------------------------------------



so in the div the = the green have the "USED:8GB right aligned" and in the div with the red/grey, have the "FREE: 2GB" left aligned.

I know there would be issues with displaying the freespace if the drive was new as there would be 0% of a green bar.

maybe have the text below the bar like so:

------------------------------------------------------
|                                               ||                  |
------------------------------------------------------
                                 USED:8GB FREE:2GB


so far im loving your work :)

Cheers! Yes, the total array size will have a key!

I'm not sure how the aesthetics of 12 checkboxes before a bunch of graphs would look like, unsure of how you'd implement such a thing nicely. I have been working on the other graphs for disk specific size though, so hopefully they'll look nicer now  :)

Right - now hosted on Google code: http://code.google.com/p/unraid-simplefeatures/

8/5/2011: Renovated the Disk Stats page. Now gives array totals, removed the un-necessary disk temperatures, and spruced up the CSS.

;) Cheers. Going to try and tone down the greens on the disks, think they're a little too crass. Got a few other cool little tidbits coming up soon, stay tuned.
