Dear all,

I really tried hard to get in contact with Manel (aka ziggy) to give Jungle a little update to make it work with Cerberus. Well the last answer I got in August was, that he would check it and answer back "soon". Since then there is silence.

As I still love Jungle and want to use it, I found a way to make it work again with Cerberus (well ya it works, but you know... intellisense and all that stuff!).

Starting with the next release I will add a zip for all of you who still want to use Jungle with Cerberus.

There are 3 important point to make it work (if you want to do it NOW already):
  1. Rename all files in the module path back to .monkey
  2. Rename all your files of the project back to .monkey
  3. Add the following line in your config.winnt.txt BEFORE the other modpath line:
    MODPATH="${MONKEYDIR}/modules;${MONKEYDIR}/modules_ext"
That's it. I have absolutely no clue why Jungle still needs "MONKEYDIR" instead of using MODPATH. But well... it works.

Thanks Xaron! Intellisense is working again!
I did follow the 3 steps, at least I think so, but I get that kind of error while compiling

"Modpath error - import=brl.filepath, existing=cerberus"
which makes me feel a bit stupid... :oops:
Have I missed something?

Thanks Martin!
Well just loading and compiling Jungle's Mojo Strict Document template leads to this:

Parsing...
Modpath error - import=mojo, existing=cerberus
Semanting...
C:/Users/Pierre/Documents/cerberus_test.monkey<9> : Error : Type 'App' not found
Abnormal program termination.
Exit code: -1

My config.winnt file starts with :

'Cerberus modules path
'
'Can be overriden via transcc cmd line
'
MODPATH="${MONKEYDIR}/modules;${MONKEYDIR}/modules_ext"
MODPATH="${CERBERUSDIR}/modules;${CERBERUSDIR}/modules_ext"

and every .cxs was changed back to .monkey....
o_O:)

Well ya, this is this modpath line, when you comment the added one out, it will compile again. But then there might be this intellisense stuff gone. Oh this joy. Would be awesome if ziggy at least would answer my mails. :( have offered money, if this is an issue but yeah, I seem to be have a talent when it comes to become members of ignore lists...

So you could switch that line during development of course, maybe it's enough to have it enabled once so Jungle can do all of its intellisense stuff.

I'm a bit surprised that this is a problem at all. My more complex examples work without issues. Strange enough.

Could all of you interested in Jungle PLEASE contact ziggy? It's probably just a tiny change for him...

You can reach him via his website http://www.lemonbytes.com or maybe even using his BlIde or JungleIDE sites. Don't know if he reads at all or maybe something bad (hope not!) happened to him which makes him absence... Dunno.

If he realizes that there is more interest into this he might do something about it. Last message I got from him was from 24th of August, where he said he would look into this "very soon."

I wondered if Ziggy is actually ok. I have posted on JungleIDE forum and contacted lemonbytes. However, his blog & facebook haven't been updated since October 2014 and have not seen any replied in the JungleIDE forum.

From the responses Martin got, someone can assume that he is doing fine. Just not very motivated to do something about it.

Yes he's ok but busy with other stuff. I offered him money for that tiny fix but he has no time at all currently.

It is a shame, the whole forum/site closing has taken a lot of wind out of everyone's sails. It would be nice for JungleIDE to be used again but without ziggy doing it maybe he could opensource it or something so others could make adjustments.

I emailed Manel about that problem a few months ago and he replied that he "might" try to fix it or something like that. Anyway using Martin's Jungle zip does the trick for me and I can now use CerberusX with JungleIDE, which is what I'm going to do right now!

If then please go for Visual Studio Code. Someone started to integrate VS Code with Monkey 2, maybe that would be a good starting point?

Ah I hate VS with a vengeance it's a dependencies nightmare on a fresh install with .net etc.

I would sooner have a ultra lightweight IDE than a off the shelf bloated mess.

Wow, It's kind of weird reading this post. Glad that there's now a working jungle ide version that supports Cerberus X now.

I've been very very bussy with work, family and with everything happening in Catalonia in general in the latest months (while the whole EU is looking anywhere else). I sure some of you may have read the news lately...

Anyway, back on topic, I apreciate a lot some of the personal emails. I'm ok and trying to find out how to be able to keep updating jungle ide much more often again!

Yes I guess most of us are aware of the weird things going on in Catalonia.
Thanks for the news and for all the hard work you've already done with Jungle IDE! I'm glad to be able to use it again and hope you'll find some time to provide some official quick fix someday but we're not in a hurry.
EDIT : ah you did find the time! so great!!

Ah well ya, sorry for that ziggy. I almost had given up. It was just kind of a frustration. Sorry for that. I'm very glad you had the time to fix that stuff which was due to the changes we made. Hope everything is well over there in Spain. I have some colleagues from there on both sides... ;)
