Good news everybody,

Today I am happy to announce the official Beta release of a complete rewrite of the Generator Suite.
You now have a permanent home for all your Generator needs.

We tried to make it as good as possible and iron out as many bugs as we could with the help of a few very great people on this forum, but as it always is, there will be a
lot of hidden bugs in the code and we cannot find all of them.So, if you find a bug or something that just isn't perfectly right, we'd be happy to know about it. We provide a template to issue a report on the new App
which you are free to use. Please post anything you find in this thread, so we know where to look for it.

For this I want to especially thank Hannu and Elf (And yes, all your wishes are in a list, we have not forgotten about them...) for all their feedback
and suggestions til today.


If you have anything to comment about this, don't hold back. We are sure there are a lot of edge cases we never thought about.
And anything you might wish for, tell us and we'll take everything you say into consideration, though we won't promise to add everything you think of.

Well, we hope you'll have as much fun testing this thing, as we had developing it.

- Malte

I have said this before, but it still amazes me how you guys have succeeded in transforming complicated-looking generator structures into something that can be edited in a clean graphical user interface. This is a giant leap for Campaign Logger usability. (y)

Quick edit on the green NOTICE bar:

Hey guys, we have to inform you, that while you use this page a few actions are logged to our servers.
This happens without any userdata, so don't worry about that. If you want to opt out of this, just go to the settings.

Remove the period in the first line. And, could we link to the settings? https://generator-ui.campaign-logger.com/profilesettings

Tweak request:

When more than one result is produced in the generator run window, and you copy to clipboard, could we add a couple line breaks?

Current:
Result 1.Result 2.

Desired:
Result 1.

Result 2.

That shouldn't be a Problem, I'll get to it!

As far as I know, this only affects the embedded editor at the moment.

Wow - this looked beautiful.

One thing I noticed on a brief look before I apparantly locked myself out of the system due to messing with the change password

The form where you show the items within generator - please do not make the item uppercase - it is upper and lowercase in the generator - please keep it that way also in the form.

Now back in - thanks Jochen

When clicking the generator to run it it opens on top of the generator boxes obscuring the right hand side column of generator box list. It would be better that the generator would widen the window leaving the boxes visible maybe

Would be good if the output list of the generator output is persistent during the session (now close, closes and empties it).

Would be good if the run button on the form would actually run the generator instead of just opening the output log and there offering the chance to run it.

The list of generators (both boxes and list) should be sortable or by default by name of the generator (I have more than 50 in one category and some hundreds overall)

Complains about pasted valid json file "there seems to be a syntax error". It validates as valid json and works in campaign logger

Clicking on the generator name on list should open the editor..
This should actually already work as intended.

On the normal View just click on the name and the edit window opens, on the list view, click on any part of the row (except for where the action buttons are located) and the generator-ui opens up the edit view.

This should actually work, tested it right now.

Would you maybe be willing to share the JSON file/code with me for testing purposes?
