I accidentally sent this just to Marcus earlier.
It basically allows us to record interaction with the GUI and replay it in a unit test. As far as I know it only uses Qt (no additional dependencies) and is BSD licensed.
This would be invaluable. I assume that it also works cross-platform?
Geoff - I notice your dashboard fails as it is compiling Avogadro 64 bit, and glew is 32 bit. You could just turn off glew, and I could help you with a CTest script to ensure it updates properly - you can see the script I am using by clicking on the Note icon in the submission I made.
I seem to have another issue which cropped up yesterday, that on the Mac QtOpenGL is no longer included as a requirement, so some of the engines fail to link. I will try to chase that down today.
Anyway, if Kitware is willing to host our Gerrit server, I’m happy to point review.avogadro.openmolecules.net at anything we want.
The SBIR funding I applied for is through, and I will be working with Albert from the Gordon Group (GAMESS) on Avogadro, electronic structure, databases, cluster/HPC submission integration and other related tools. This means I get around 6 months where I can spend a fair portion of my days working on Avogadro, and if things go well this could turn into a few years.
This is great. I think one issue which has slowed development is that we don’t have a core developer working actively on Avogadro. So your funding obviously can make things move faster.
At the workshop at Cornell, there was a lot of interest in Avogadro and Open Babel. I’ll summarize this in a separate e-mail later today, but suffice to say that the solid-state community (e.g., Abinit) is definitely interested in Avogadro and would like to contribute. An Abinit developer is already working on an input generator for Git master.
