Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.5.+ ( 1. 12. 2021+ )

@Andrew Heard sure I have, for example writing a blog post where I try to sum general info about theme support  ;). Hope you and others find there all answers. If not, I'll update it, of course, just ask, thanks.

Blog post on Medium.

And again, if something regards themes won't work as expected > share theme with me. John & Andrew, I'll prepare a version during next days ...

hmm, this is a nice mystery with your maps :). If you will be interested, I may create a special version with little more logs printed ...

last app version + last Voluntary V5 theme? Really?? Damn, probably version also for you :)

in the link file should be a relative path to any pdf file or just Url to any web address

Any theme or theme feature does not work? Share it with me, thanks ;)

Hmm, I'm testing it a little more, and seems that access may be done only over the new ScopedStorage system (usable only for MapsForge V4 maps), but not over the common "File" access that Locus Map currently needs for all maps!

So sorry, guys, only app-specific directories seem to be usable. I see a big advantage: directories are accessible for system file browsers (for now).

well, the current version just fix the issue when the user moved the whole app to SD card private directory and then wanted to attach a new photo to the point. The camera app was able to create a new file but was not able to write any data inside. I had to create a hack that a photo is created in internal memory and then moved to an SD card. So current problem > not a big surprise.

To sum it
- for now, of course, the best solution is to enable "All files access" and use Locus Map as before
- once we lost this permission, a) I'll already create some manager for maps built into app, or Android/media/ is the way

With Locus Map Pro it is a little more complicated as the app was twice declined and I'm unable to the public the official version with the "All files access" system. As mentioned before, will have to prepare it just as APK for direct install.

Version 4.5.6 was just published on Google Play.

@Andrew Heard
I was checking the code and it really does not make sense to me. Update to the new version once it will be available, re-select any vector map, and give it a try again, thanks. Michael wrote about an improved logging system > this is correct, but ... I'll explain it later :). But it does not help too much here ...

sorry for the confusion with the "media" directory. I was not yet trying it, so it was only my guess.

give a try to this new version. What about start performance, better? Should be.

Android is really weird since A11.

App create directory with the package name, so /Android/media/
- app may read and write here without limits
- directory is deleted together with the app!!

App may also create any! directory here, so for example /Android/media/maps
- app can not read any content from this directory. Simply request "get files" return "nothing" even I've just put few maps there.
- directory is not deleted together with the app

thanks, I probably see something ... again related to HGT files

super, thanks!

link to file with the relative path to app root directory worked before? I'm surprised. I expect a relative path within the theme directory. Hmm anyway, I've made it work...

got it, thanks

@Andrew Heard
error "No map with themes is active" has nothing to do with themes. It simply try to tell you, that no vector map is currently selected!

Oki fine. There is not everything in the logs, so if there still be unexpected slowdown even after removing the link to this SRTM dir, let me know, we may investigate it deeper ...

"media" dir ... I was thinking also like you, but I've answered based on my common sense. So I expect that when google prohibited access of apps to the root and even file managers to private dirs, why there will be such a hole like the "Android/media" directory. This does not make sense to me to be true  ::). Anyway, because I create app directories manually, there is a change, this dir won't be deleted ... what a stupid Google decision, omg.

Beta version RC

So anyone has any troubles with existing themes in this latest Beta version or generally any other problem, please let me know. I'll publish tomorrow hopefully the latest bug-fix version to Google Play.

Also for Locus Map Pro, unfortunately without "All files access" > Google declined our request already twice in row ::). So I'll try to find a method to generate a custom "Pro" version with this access just for Google Drive download. But this later.

Thanks for the help and these of you, who enjoy some free time and relax over Christmas time, enjoy it ;)

@Andrew Heard
may you please share with me at least one theme that does not work with the latest Beta version? Everything I tried is working correctly on my device, thanks.

lag, hmm. Should be visible loading, I'll look at it. Zipped themes need a little more time compared to directories so there may be a little slowdown when checking available themes. Not during usage, there will be no performance difference!

sorry, any alternative to "default maps dir" is not possible. Technically it is really forced to core defined directory. And why not simply setup "mapsVector" to the private directory on the SD card?

And yes, Android/media directory should be deleted as well once app is un-installed.

I'm trying to get from you info about what you have defined directly in the "External maps" dialog: !

And if this was fast before then the only chance is that these files were not scanned at all.

And Beta: no idea, sorry. But hopefully not a big problem, in the worst case on Thursday, a new public version needs to be published.

Why do you have a directory with 19050!!!! HGT files added into "maps"???  :D

What "External maps" do you have defined? May you post a screenshot of this config dialog please? ("+" button in the offline tab > external maps).

Even if so, an empty/invalid directory should be skipped within a millisecond, nothing like this should cause such a massive slow-down. And the only place where are defined any alternative paths to maps are "External maps".

Beta version

text problems are really interesting, can't simulate it :). Hmm, ...

your steps may of course works, partially. There are many variables that are not perfectly under my control, like the "locus-actions" system used for downloading many maps & themes from the internet directly to the Locus Map app. To be true, I just still do not understand why to change it ... I'm sure that ordinary users don't care where are themes and that's all that matters I believe.

Thanks for the logs ... 90s just to detect existing maps. Uff. We will need to do a few more versions to find out the real reason, sorry. So next new Beta adds a few more logs on places where the app directly work with detected files and check the type of maps. Try it and give me a log again please, thanks.

Currently, I test themes packed directly into ZIP without a top-level directory. But both approaches should work in the end. More XML files in the zip, together with the icon & legend files should be supported now as well.

thanks, this helped a lot!

only the default "mapsVector" directory is used for such checks. All other places work the same as "external maps" > so only a source of maps side-loaded during init, nothing more.

As Viajero wrote, good tip!

Grabbing info about map content directly from the map should be really complicated, but online query on OSM, why not. Not too user-friendly result, but usable  ;)

I see a problem with zipped themes, thanks. Should be fixed now so I'm going to prepare the version.

@luce, @bezel
sorry, this is quite a useless report. Which existing themes do not work? How should I simulate this problem?

really interesting because in the code, it is ok. It happen to you as well?

Change of "_themes" is not so easy guys. More than 1 mil. of users already use this system, 3rd party web pages that allows downloading map & themes directly relly on this. There will be also a problem with these zipped themes => how to correctly update non-zipped. We may discuss this later, but I do not think it is important to change it, sorry.

Hi, sorry for this. The problem is already fixed and the new version currently waits on validation on the Google server. Hopefully, during the next days, it will be finally published. Thanks for understanding.
