History

#1 Updated by João Gaspar almost 7 years ago

I find the bug. :)

In the folder .qgis2/python/plugins/processing/saga on the SagaAlgorithm.py in line 508 substitute 'help' to 'description' and works fine :)

#2 Updated by João Gaspar almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

#3 Updated by Filipe Dias almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened
  • Priority changed from Low to Normal

There's also no help on Linux (I thought there wasn't any).

#4 Updated by Filipe Dias almost 7 years ago

I applied your fix but it didn't work. It may be possible that I tested algorithms with no help. Which ones did you test?

#5 Updated by João Gaspar almost 7 years ago

I confirm the help is incomplete. Another thing. After the fix if the help stay blank do right click and reload this should work.

Try for example the help of algorithm Pattern analysis

#6 Updated by Filipe Dias almost 7 years ago

Hum, on Linux "Reload" doesn't work with the Help of Pattern Analysis

#7 Updated by João Gaspar almost 7 years ago

One thing do you have the folder description inside of saga folder with html help?

Another thing that i can do is send my SagaAlgorithm.py and compare both files.

#8 Updated by Alexander Bruy almost 7 years ago

If I'm not wrong, we never have complete documentation. Also we decided to move all documentation outside Processing, to reduce plugin size, make it more easy to maintain and allow translations.

For now all documentation located in Processing-Help repository and currently there are only few algorithms documented. If you want to help, please, add documentation to this repo.

Also see #8259

#9 Updated by João Gaspar almost 7 years ago

Yes Alexander, now i see one thing.

I use the #8259 to get html help and put in my folder of description inside of saga folder in C:\\Users\\JOAO\\.qgis2\\python\\plugins\\processing\\saga\\description.

After this, the help turn empty then i try the solution of the bug #8259 and nothing.

Then i open Saga Algorithm.py and see that directory of help saga folder was establish like 'help' then i change by 'descripton' where is the previous html help that i use from #8259.

At hist moment i'm using the help html of the #8259.

But yes still incomplete.

Thanks Alexandee for the notice. =)

I can try complete some of the help but i'm newbie in github.
The link of github is broken in #8259.

Another thing is to use the help in HTML or .txt.

Regards
João
