Hi Danny,

Thanks for your suggestions! They pointed me in the right direction and my investigations were  a bit embarrassing. The first thing I discovered was that Roastmaster was waiting to be updated in the App Store of my iPad! I installed it and also removed and reinstalled OneDrive. Since then DB uploads through OneDrive have worked perfectly. Thank you!

Hi Koji

Thanks for the kind words and for letting me know.

When we last talked, this version was already in beta, so I could not officially entertain any "new" features. But, I did a lot of internal work in November to the language localizations so that it would be easier to add Japanese.

I still want to do that in the coming months.

Kind regards

Hi Kor

Great to hear from you! Hope you enjoyed the holidays.

I'll be honest, I don't have any experience with OneDrive. But I would suspect a problem with the iOS OneDrive app, because Roastmaster doesn't really "do anything" with file transfers anymore.

In the old days, when Roastmaster exported a Database, it interacted directly with the cloud service APIs. I coded different methods for each service that it supported. Essentially, it did all the "hard work".

Apple has streamlined that process though, in recent iOS versions. Now, installed apps tell iOS that they can handle file transfers, and those are automatically available in Roastmaster. All Roastmaster does now is prepare the file, then pass it off to iOS, which passes it off in turn to that app.

I'm assuming you have the OneDrive app installed on your iPad and linked with your account, correct? If so, you should see a OneDrive icon appear when exporting a database. Do you see a list item with the words "Save to OneDrive"?

Some apps let themselves be "linked" to the iOS "Files" app. For those apps, you can choose "Save to Files", and choosing the app within the "Files" interface. Do you see that?

Maybe try doing a test using "Save to Files" and choosing an iCloud destination. Does that complete for you?

Let me know

Hello Danny

Thank you for releasing a new version of Roastmaster.

I was really looking forward to becoming compatible with ios14.
Just downloaded it and haven't started using it yet, but I'll use it tomorrow.
I was really looking forward to using it as I was expecting many changes.
Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Hi Danny!

Could you give me any tips exporting my DB to Onedrive? When I try it says Uploading... on the bottom of the window and my DB name and Waiting... at the top of the same window. It never completes. I don't know how it should behave if there is already a file of the same name at the destination but there is none.

I've been using Google Drive with no problems but Onedrive would be more convenient.

I'm accessing OneDrive from the latest version of Windows 10. RoastMaster is running on an iPad Pro running iPadOS 14.3

Thanks! I hope you are staying safe and doing well!

Hi Koji

Thank you for reaching out and for the kind words!  :)

I do plan to provide a Japanese translation soon. I've made a lot of changes for the coming release of Roastmaster due this Fall. Once that is completed, I will look into adding a Japanese translation.

Kind regards,

I am a Japanese user. Roast masters are very active in daily roasting. I am very much looking forward to a new version of Roast Master. I would be very happy if you could speak Japanese. Thank you very much for the new and innovative software.
Wish List / Re: Default curve selection in Roast Console
« Last post by Danny Hall on July 20, 2020, 02:37:37 PM »
Hi Trey

Great suggestion! Actually, this is on my to-do list to look at when I start official internal testing - probably this coming Monday. Since I've redesigned that area of the console, the old "reasons" why it is that way are no necessarily valid anymore. And I want to make sure that portion is honed for the reasons you mention.

You are correct...Roastmaster lets you reorder your data curves. It actually relies on it, because it considers the first curve to be the one you're most interested in. THat's the one it uses for the metrics of reports, and the temperature information it display lower down in that table view. For data logging users, that's typically Bean Mass. For sample roasters, though, it might be a control curve.

Whatever the case, the main reason I select the first curve in code, is so that you can see the drop temp at a glance...that's important to most people. A secondary reason, though, is that folks new to the app who don't yet understand the workflow, would probably be confused if they create a curve and bound it to a probe, and when that view reappears are not greeted with any type of temperature or curve related feedback. Since the curve would be empty, it would appear as if nothing had happened.

So, I want to be careful about what I show, and when. But, flip-style comparison like you mention is important. I've put some thought into that for this of the reason I removed a lot of the hokey animations. They were designed to show users WHAT was tappable, but become annoying when flipping through roasts. But I digress.

I really like your idea. Now that I've offloaded all the old criteria selector buttons and graph controls to a separate screen, I have room for more informative text. What I will probably do, is...IFF the roast is complete, and more than one curve exists, forgo the manual selection. Otherwise, keep as is. That "makes sense" to me...and I think it would to users as well. I've added it to the backlog for the beta. The code changes will be easy and I can squeeze it in. I may also lighten the reference curves when no curve is selected - similar to the analyzer.

This is really an awesome idea...and a great observation that sometimes I'm not in the best position to make for myself. I really appreciate you mentioning this...and your other thoughts!!!!
Wish List / Default curve selection in Roast Console
« Last post by Trey D on July 19, 2020, 03:50:32 PM »

Currently it seems the default is whichever data curve is at the top of the list in the Data Curve section for that roast. What I like to see when I'm tapping through my completed roasts is how the readings compare to the references. When a curve is selected all the nodes and the area under the curve light up. This obscures the other curves, especially when they are very close together and I find myself tapping on every roast graph until no curves are selected.
I'd like to request a way to set the default curve selection to 'none' for the graph on the roast console.
If there's already a way to do this, please let me know.
