~/config/cache/HaikuDepot/ - Cached icons, screenshots, descriptions etc.

HaikuDepot is the central application when it comes to managing your software packages. With it you can browse and search through package repositories and install, update and uninstall packages. By default, HaikuDepot starts up with a list of "Featured packages", software that's deemed interesting to many users.


When the Show only featured packages checkbox is deactivated, all available packages are shown and the display changes to smaller icons and more information arranged in columns:


index Filtrul

At the top we find a few means to filter the list of available packages below:

index Lista

Like in any Tracker window, you can choose from a context menu which columns to display by right-clicking the column heading. A left-click sorts the list according to that column. Of course, you can rearrange the columns by dragging them to a new position.

The status column of a package can have one of several states:

You can grab the dotted line between the packages list and the info area to vertically resize the packages list.

index Zona de informații

At the bottom is an area that displays information on the package that is currently selected in the list above it.
To the right of package name, author, rating and version is a button, that – depending on the current state of the package – lets you Install, Uninstall or Update it. If a package is already installed, you'll find an additional button there to Open the application.

Below are four tabs: About, Ratings, Changelog and Contents.

index Tools and Show menu

In the Tools menu at the top of the window, you'll find an item to Refresh repositories. This will request an up-to-date list of all available packages from the repositories.
The second item is to Manage repositories.... It opens the Repositories preferences, to add/remove or disable and enable repositories.
Check for updates... opens the SoftwareUpdater to search and install updated packages.

Under Show you can choose to also display Develop packages and Source packages in the packages list. For the normal user those are of no interest and would only clutter the list. They are important, however, for people who need the libraries, headers etc. of a package to develop and compile programs depending on them.

Of more interest are the options to only show Available packages and Installed packages.

index Crearea unui cont de utilizator

To be able to rate a package, you need a user account at the Haiku Depot Server that serves all the packages and keeps track of ratings and user comments. You can create an account within the HaikuDepot application by clicking on the menu in the far right of the menu bar that shows your current status: Not logged in. Choosing Log in... opens a window with two tabs; one to enter your user name and password (once you have those) to log in, and the other to create a new account:


Pentru crearea unui cont trebuie să:

After logging in, the top-right menu of the HaikuDepot window will now say Logged in as (...), showing your user name. The menu now offers you to Switch account... or Log out.

index Evaluare și comentarii

După ce ați creat un cont de utilizator și sunteți autentificat, puteți să evaluați pachete și să scrieți un comentariu dacă doriți. Doar planați mouseul pe stelele de evaluare din zona de informații pentru un pachet și acestea se transformă într-un buton de Evaluare.... Dați clic pe acesta pentru a deschide fereastra de evaluare:


Here you move the mouse over the stars to light them up and choose your rating, you can also choose from a number of levels to judge the stability of the application and pick the language of your optional comment. To make a comment meaningful, you should have worked with the application you're about to rate for a while to become familiar with its features, bugs and quirks. And don't write the next great American novel... keep it short, sweet and polite. :)
After you click Send the data is transmitted to the server. You may have to go to the Tools menu to Refresh repositories before you can see your changes.

În orice moment puteți reveni și edita comentariul și reevalua pachetul. Puteți de asemenea să ascundeți evaluarea de alți utilizatori prin deactivarea căsuței Alți utilizatori pot să vadă această evaluare.
