Add documentation, thanks @ams for help with wording. An alternative (but not less redundant) approach may be to create a new documentation-only web page to list available keyboard shortcuts for all pages (there's also the global ESC shortcut to close the Hamburger Menu) linked to from the individual command help screens. ...

11:30
Since dynamically added CSS classes to hide elements are discarded on back/forward navigation, reset all diff toggle checkboxes to checked to match what is actually visible. An alternative approach is to find the unchecked diff toggles and reapply the CSS classes to hide the corresponding diff blocks. ... (check-in: 4368a1c9 user: florian tags: diff-keyboard-navigation)
09:25
'skin:' CGI config directive now accepts an empty value for consistency with the --skin CLI flag. ... (check-in: 6362a98f user: stephan tags: trunk)

Fix scrolling if there's only one diff block. ... (check-in: e41214d2 user: florian tags: diff-keyboard-navigation)
14:24
Implement Javascript-based keyboard navigation for web UI diffs. Shortcuts SHIFT+I or I show or hide all diffs, and P or O show the next or previous diff. See Forum Post a78f44576c for more information. ... (check-in: b7e089e0 user: florian tags: diff-keyboard-navigation)
12:28
improve login-group command documentation and output

Prompted by 58f01f6d92, a7d15cc071, and 1c639bcdea. Clarify semantics of -R|--repository in 'fossil login-group join' and make user output more helpful. While here, trim some trailing whitespace. ... (check-in: 83bc81e8 user: mark tags: trunk)

2022-09-25
14:18
fix specified file path case in locate_unmanaged_files()

Only insert unmanaged files into the temp sfile table. This now makes the routine behave consistently whether file, directory, or no paths are passed on the command line, and fixes the `fossil changes --extra` bug report in 452ec8fac167. ... (check-in: 39eb451a user: mark tags: trunk)

13:44
tweak `fossil remote` cmd to update the "default" name

Don't delete the current default remote-url when the user invokes the invalid `fossil remote add default` command; instead, output correct usage to update the special "default" symbolic name. Tweak help text to make this more obvious. Prompted by 5748fcb117a99b43. ... (check-in: 2a3e851e user: mark tags: trunk)

07:18
Minor changes to option handling for the `ui' command: (A) Abort early with an error message if the specified port number is invalid (instead of later with an assertion failure); (B) Add short form -p for --page; (C) Add short form -B for --nobrowser. ... (check-in: 1431ebae user: florian tags: trunk)

Enhancements to the "fossil finfo -i" command such that it only shows the first check-in for the file (unless -v is also used) and so that it shows the modification time as a separate line for easy parsing by scripts. ... (check-in: ac6edb35 user: drh tags: trunk)

Fix the help text for the previous check-in. ... (check-in: c0162a4f user: drh tags: trunk)

2022-09-21
17:14
Backup any unmamaged files that are about to be overwritten by an update or merge. Potentially avoid the loss of a local file if the overwrite warning goes unnoticed, in which case undo is useless. ... (check-in: e99e58c5 user: mgagnon tags: trunk)

On the /tkthistory page supply each ticket change item with a corresponding id attribute and make the 'History' button within a submenu of a /tinfo page to link back to that particular element on the /tkthistory page. ... (Leaf check-in: 4bb91f38 user: george tags: deltify-tkt-blobs)

Do not require that the chat-timeline robot username be an actual user in the USER table. If the chat-timeline-user config variable exists, then timeline events are announced in chat, regardless. ... (check-in: 1f5474ec user: drh tags: trunk)
13:12
Remove redundant PRE tags on the /wdiff pages. ... (check-in: 0dd5451d user: george tags: deltify-tkt-blobs)
2022-09-13
20:11
Add the ability to designate a timeline robot user. If such a user exists, and if chat is enabled, then notifications of all timeline events appear in chat, from the robot user. ... (check-in: e9d7cf3e user: drh tags: trunk)
2022-09-09
18:26
Minor improvement to SEE integration. ... (check-in: 660c2b15 user: mistachkin tags: trunk)
17:22
Sync up custom makefile for MinGW. ... (check-in: a3ed29ea user: mistachkin tags: trunk)
2022-09-07
09:11
Mentioned containerd+nerdctl in place of runc in the containers doc. A tightened-up version of the prior runc and crun sections are now collected below the Podman section. This gives a better flow: each successive option is smaller than the last, excepting only nspawn, which is a bit bigger than crun. (We leave nspawn last because we can't get it to work!) ... (check-in: 457c14a4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:35
Updated the "nojail" patch for our Dockerfile to track the recent changes: rename back from Dockerfile.in and the layer refactoring. It does essentially the same thing as before. ... (check-in: 19abf0ac user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-09-06
22:25
Merge trunk into remote-add-fix branch. ... (Leaf check-in: baf635cb user: stephan tags: remote-add-fix)
2022-09-05
14:03
Update the built-in SQLite to the latest 3.40.0 alpha. ... (check-in: 9d12e964 user: drh tags: trunk)
08:15
Broke the Dockerfile up into more layers to allow better local caching at build time. Further optimized build time by producing the Fossil source tarball from the local repo instead of hitting the home site if you use the container-image target, since we can be reasonably certain you're working from a repo checkout and thus have all the info available here locally already. ... (check-in: 1da464ee user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:42
Expanded the paragraph on WAL mode interactions in the container doc into a full section, placed higher up, immediately after the first use of Docker's "--volume" flag, to explain why we don't map just the repo DB file, but the whole directory it sits in. Even if we later convince ourselves WAL is safe under this scenario, it'll be conditional at best, so some remnant of this section must remain, no matter which way the experiments go. ... (check-in: 698587d4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-09-04
23:46
Renamed Dockerfile.in back to Dockerfile so it can be used as-is on non-autosetup systems. Realized that we can pass the Fossil checkin hash prefix in as a build arg instead of regenerating the file on disk from auto.def. If you use the Dockerfile as-shipped, you get a "trunk" build, which risks a stale cache — it thinks it already has a tarball by that name and helpfully refuses to pull it again — but at least Windows users get *something* without hand-hacking the file. ... (check-in: b0c9c26a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:20
Added a /jail/log directory to the container so someone can pass --errorlog and such to the Fossil instance and have a place to put it. It also acts as a mountpoint for appending to a log out on the host. ... (check-in: ed50ceee user: wyoung tags: trunk)
21:58
/dev permissions were too tight in the container. They're still tighter than on a stock Ubuntu box, but they should suffice for Fossil's needs. ... (check-in: 8eeb95e1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:55
Restricted the container listeners to localhost in section 6 of the containers doc, and mentioned a few other items related to reverse proxying with nginx. ... (check-in: c9ab736f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:14
Folded info from an exchange with the Podman devs into the container doc. ... (check-in: 80f4a1dd user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:36
Added section numbers to the containers doc (it was getting confusing) and added a few internal fragment IDs. ... (check-in: 4d51d524 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:26
Finished all the new topics planned for the new containers doc, adding sections on rootful Podman containers and on building via Docker but running via Podman, using Docker Hub as an intermediary to avoid building on the remote host. ... (check-in: 9c96e499 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:27
Sanitized a local port number out of previous ... (check-in: 3dfa4581 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:25
Added my sad tale of failure and woe with systemd-nspawn to the container docs, both as a warning to those who follow, and as a cry for help to someone who can make this work. I can't be bothered to spend more time on it, but there's no point throwing the work away. ... (check-in: 1e8c6655 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:15
Documented another cause to modify the "m" variable in the runc examples in the container docs. ... (check-in: bf503088 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
08:09
Added more jq filters to the runc examples to remove further problematic things left in the automatic conversion from the Docker container configuration file to the one we provide to runc. ... (check-in: 4e8c7479 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:15
Worked through some difficulties here in applying the runc method on remote systems, then documented what I learned in the containers doc. ... (check-in: 56f4e2ce user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:28
Small fix to previous ... (check-in: d5695c8e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:02
Expanded the runc section of the container doc to cover "bundle" terminology and to show a method for rsyncing the bundle across to a remote host. Also explained why this is a bad idea unless you've got a rather constrained use case, lest people avoid using podman/docker in places where they could provide real value. ... (check-in: f9f13ce7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:32
Documented the runc and crun options for running a container, including the cryptic method for exporting an OCI bundle from Docker, allowing you to use both together: Docker Desktop on your big dev box in the office, then one of the two lightweight runtimes out in the cloud. ... (check-in: c9431ef4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:35
Added explicit instructions for patching the Dockerfile for the nojail/podman method and for mapping a single Fossil repo into the container rather than a directory. Also included my best current advice on using WAL mode in these contexts. ... (check-in: 87a23d2a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:15
Removed a TODO-based section of the new containers doc that wasn't meant to be checked in yet. Made a few improvements to the new Podman material as well. ... (check-in: 5adf6c40 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:01
Added the "Lightweight Alternatives to Docker" section to the new containers doc, currently limited to a tutorial on converting the stock Dockerfile to work under Podman in its default mode, creating a rootless container. This brings in the second container-related file at the root of the repo, the patch file for this, so we don't have to maintain two nearly-parallel Dockerfiles. As a bonus, it allows us to point to the patch from the prose, making explicit what we had to change. ... (check-in: f0399ea9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:53
Moved the busybox-config file from tools/ into a new containers/ subdirectory. We were using that as a junk-drawer directory, for lack of a better place to put it. Now that we're about to have a second container-related file in the repo, that weak excuse is wearing thin. ... (check-in: b08e2bb7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:39
Referencing the new containers.md file from Dockerfile.in so we can remove a big redundant block comment from it. While in there, made a few style tweaks that will help the ongoing container document expansion. ... (check-in: be8f721d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-09-03
23:34
Extracted the Docker containers material from www/build.wiki and moved it into a new document dedicated to the topic, containers.md. It was already pushing the bounds of how much info we want to provide in a single section of that doc, and it's about to get bigger.

As part of the conversion from wiki format to Markdown, did another edit pass on the doc, improving a few things along the way.

Dropped the "docker-" prefix from all internal IDs, as we no longer need them to disambiguate references to other parts of the build doc. ... (check-in: 7129dc98 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

2022-09-01
16:05
Address builtin_deliver_multiple_js_files() endless loop reported in forum post a9a60fab07. ... (check-in: 76c9bbb3 user: stephan tags: trunk)
10:52
Add aliases as a new command type and display these next to the corresponding main command in /help. Make sure that for the 'test-all-help' command and webpage each help string is output at most once. ... (check-in: db708494 user: danield tags: trunk)
01:29
Merge in trunk. Resolve a shadowed var in dispatch.c which led to an assigned-but-not-used warning. ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: a257fbd9 user: stephan tags: help-aliases-unique)
2022-08-30
01:49
Embroidered the "make container-run" target to make it more convenient. ... (check-in: bc09e28a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-08-29
18:21
The container doc bit on raw sockets now covers the other three Busybox utilities we left out previously. Today's removal of ping and traceroute merely completes the set; it wasn't complete in itself. ... (check-in: b429bd71 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:07
Clarified the points in §5.2.1 of the Docker container build doc regarding the reason why the server parent process runs as root. ... (check-in: c2eaa60d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:54
Researched, tested, and documented the set of "docker create --cap-drop" options we can add to strip away unnecessary root privileges inside the container without harming normal operation. Belt-and-suspenders: if any bad actor ever got into the container with root privileges, this would help prevent them from affecting anything outside the container. Added that set to the "make container-run" target so they get applied by default in the easy case. ... (check-in: f715add9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:32
Removed ping and traceroute commands from the Docker container. They require raw sockets support, which means if anyone broke into the container and managed a root privilege escalation, they could do a wide array of bad things on any network the container is bound to. ... (check-in: f00a88f8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:01
Polishing pass on §5.2 of the container build doc, "Why Chroot?" ... (check-in: e9860314 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:27
Add a missing closing LI tag for the /tkthistory page. ... (check-in: 2d0b2bda user: george tags: deltify-tkt-blobs)

Minor optimization within getAllTicketFields() function. ... (check-in: c3e7ed30 user: george tags: deltify-tkt-blobs)
2022-08-28

Clarified the parent process user ID vs the child process in the explanation of how the chroot feature interacts with the custom user feature of the Docker container. ... (check-in: f9ddd38e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:52
Made a better distinction between bind mounts and Docker volumes in the new Docker section of the build doc. ... (check-in: 958a6af9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-08-24
06:52
Add a slight drop shadow to the /chat message widgets. Edit: we already had a drop shadow, just placed on a different sub-element. ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: b04740bd user: stephan tags: mistake)
2022-08-23
11:14
Correct a NULL being passed to strcmp() which caused any submit of JS script code in the skin editor to segfault. Reported in forum post 9d9f0580fd. ... (check-in: a8847839 user: stephan tags: trunk)
2022-08-22
18:27
Make it possible to store similar ticket change artifacts as deltas. This might be useful when a certain column of the TICKET table holds a lengthy text that may undergo frequent modifications.

This is an opt-in feature. It is activated only when TICKET table contains a phony INTEGER column "baseline for $name" where $name stands for the name of the actual column provisioned for the aforementioned frequently changing text. ... (check-in: 0f4a0fe8 user: george tags: deltify-tkt-blobs)

2022-08-19
04:42
Fix the logic to cancel default actions and further event bubbling to take effect for all handled keys. ... (check-in: 9cfd4e2b user: florian tags: timeline-keyboard-navigation)
2022-08-18
13:21
Add the "Timeline" submenu link on the setup_edit page, for ordinary users. Change the "Access Log" link on that same page so that it is only present for ordinary users - not special users like "reader" or "developer". ... (check-in: 6f70a236 user: drh tags: trunk)
2022-08-17
05:30
Removed a digression in the gitusers doc about Fossil's new clone-and-open mechanisms. That got moved to the ckout-workflows doc quite some time back, and we already point to it from that same section. There's no reason for the redundancy. Also cleaned up some grammar and typos while in there. ... (check-in: f43eaf01 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-08-16
11:05
Changed the "fossil server --user" flag's argument back to "admin" from "fossil" for the container: I was confusing the Unix user name with the default Fossil repo user name. The new "adduser fossil" stuff doesn't help here; we still want it to be called "admin". ... (check-in: 72d820f3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:04
ARM build fixes for the container:
  • QEMU couldn't cope with "make -j" on the BusyBox step (too many processes) so I changed it to -j11
  • Made the new executable compression step conditional, since there is no upx package in Alpine for either ARM flavor. There's a long bug thread for it on GitHub, which doesn't look to be getting resolved any time soon.
... (check-in: 8849abb7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Minor fixes to the Docker container build process ... (check-in: 454397b0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:14
URL fix necessitated from the Dockerfile.in rename ... (check-in: 2f67bf94 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:03
Carved the Docker container image size down still further by stripping out all but two of the stock skins (d* so we get default and darkmode) and packing Fossil and BusyBox with UPX. ... (check-in: e20d044c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:49
Fixed an Obi Wan error in the new Fossil version prefix stuff in auto.def: it was extracting the first 13 characters of the hash, not the first 12. ... (check-in: 7ecd23e0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-08-15
23:21
Added the container-image and container-run top-level build targets to manage dependencies better and to auto-version the build products. ... (check-in: 67386c75 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:07
Put the "--user fossil" bit back into the fossil server command for the container. Just ran into a situations where it's still needed. ... (check-in: 4c8cc804 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:13
Polishing pass on the container repo storage section of the build docs. ... (check-in: 3e332637 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:02
Changed several of the Docker environment variables to build arguments so the user an override them at build time rather than container creation time, and documented them in build.wiki. Using this new mechanism to pull the Fossil source tarball in such a way that we can use the Docker artifact cache without getting stale builds. You can now pass one of the new build args to force the old behavior if you want it. This required generating Dockerfile from Dockerfile.in at configure time, to inject the current Fossil checkin ID. (This busts the Docker cache when the source tree changes.) ... (check-in: f9384383 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:32
Adding the BusyBox tarball to the container image with an ADD command rather than wget to avoid triggering GitHub throttling. Unlike the Fossil repo URL, it has a version number baked into it, so it's safe to give it over to Docker's caching behavior. ... (check-in: d06d7c46 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:48
Noted the container size shrinkage in the fossil-v-git doc ... (check-in: f21de33e user: wyoung tags: trunk)

The container now builds Busybox from source so we can remove utilities that are unhelpful inside the container. We leave a lot behind for expansion (e.g. the runit init system, crond, inetd…) but we remove things that have no possible justification, such as modprobe. We remove everything from /bin that's a shell builtin (echo, printf, test…) and we replace a few BusyBox commands (sha[13]sum) with wrapper shell scripts that call Fossil builtins. We cap that off by adding a "sqlite3" wrapper that calls "fossil sqlite3 --no-repository", just for fun. All together, this trims about a meg of fat. ... (check-in: 953f367e user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Fossil's chroot feature drops root permissions based on file ownership, but since the container was built with everything-root, its HTTP hit handling children would run as whatever host-side UID/GID pair you used for file ownership. What happened next was complex.

If you let the container create the repo internally, it would be owned as root, so it would drop root permissions for…root! This isn't super-bad, since Fossil is presumed secure and is double-jailed besides. The risk is, if anyone works out an RCE for Fossil, they might be able to get it to create raw sockets or do various other types of escapes despite the double-jail dance.

Attaching a Docker volume brings external permisssions into the container. We were recommending a "chown 0" command on the shared volume to make it similar to the in-container case, but that opens you to the same risks above. If you ignored this and used host-side UID/GID pairs, Fossil would then be left running under IDs that didn't exist internally, which could cause assorted weirdness.

We're now creating an explicit "fossil" user/group pair inside the container and recommending that Docker volumes use these IDs for copied-in files to batten down something that shouldn't've been left flapping.

The parent process now handles SIGTERM with an explicit exit(3) call when its PID is 1, as when it's running as "fossil server" in a Docker container.

Using the preceding --chroot fixes to make the Docker container serve the repo from /jail/museum/repo.fossil rather than from the chroot dir, /jail.

Replaced Jan Nijtman's Dockerfile with a new one that does a 2-stage build. The first stage runs atop Alpine Linux instead of Fedora, reducing the initial build from ~635 MiB to about 16.

Rather than stop there, I then made it multi-stage, copying two key static binaries — Fossil and Busybox — over from the first stage into a fresh-from-scratch container and set it up to run the former jailed away from the latter.

The result is under 9 MiB, and it's as secure as one can hope, given that it starts up in "PUBLIC" mode. The new build doesn't have all the extra features turned on that the old one did, but it seems right to build the container with Fossil in its default configuration. If you want something else, copy the Dockerfile, hack it, and make it do what you want instead.

Having done all this, I replaced the one-off Dockerfile inline in section 5.0 of the build doc with a reference to this new Dockerfile and rewrote the section in terms of the new capabilities.

Finally, this lets us brag on how small the container can be, as compared to the Gitlab-CE container. Before, we were comparing a standalone binary to the container, which wan't entirely fair.

Remove some unnecessary `bind()' calls for variables already held in function closure. Apart from that, the approach seems to work well and also covers odd cases, such as the post-expansion timeout to clear maxHeight being shorter than the CSS animation duration (in which case the animation would just jerkily stop, but with the correct element height), or setting a short "decoy value" (say, "100px") instead of the real scrollHeight for maxHeight (in which case the animated area would just be smaller, but with the same end result). ...

Attempt to fix the accordion for "Changes" sections: (A) "Delay-init" the maxHeight property only right before the closing animation, so that the dynamic diffs have enough time to resize themselves without any constraints, and then set maxHeight to zero to trigger the animation in idle time, to prevent coalescing the maxHeight changes (or there won't be an animation when going from "undefined" to "0"). (B) On expansion, after awaiting the animation duration, clear the maxHeight property, so browsers are again free to resize without any constraints. This is the same trick that works well for the hamburger menu, and fixes another problem with FF to return too small values for scrollHeight with large diffs, so that they would again be truncated (but the error is small enough so it doesn't matter for the animation). ...

Try to fix the focus indicator CSS to work for all skins: alpha-blending "10% black" with light-mode background colors, or "20% white" with dark-mode background colors, looks surprisingly well and conflicts less with branch colors (which can be orange-ish, but never black or white).
