wishlist XML export

Post by voets »

After working with divinglog for a few months, I really like the flexibility. Importing any of my divecomputers is super easy.

I'm using the XML export to feed data into my own website: www.ultimatedivelog.com
For the finishing touch this would be the wishlist for the XML file:

* Adding the marinelife info
* Export pO2 profile (there's already depth, temp, press etc.. ) When I import a CCR dive from my Petrel 2, I see the pO2 graph, but in the xml it's lacking
* Having 2nd or more tanks with pressure info and contents in the export

Would be great if you find some time to add these features to a next release.

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll add this to my to-do list! I haven't updated the XML export for quite some time.

Any chance you have time to implement this?

I've implemented now the additional profile data, Trip & Shop name and additional tanks. You can download the beta from here and copy the content of the zip file into the Diving Log program folder.

Which data would you like to see from marine life? Is the common name enough?

Great!
I only noticed your reply now. The extra profiles and tank info show up fine in the XML export.

For me the common name of marine life is enough. Can be like the UsedEquip tag, a simple comma separated list in 1 tag.
That would make the xml export perfect for my use case.

I downloaded the last beta on a new PC, but that one has a bug it seems.
The XML export writing window finishes, but no XML file is actually written.
So had to put back the previous version without the extra features.
Can you check ?

Hi, there is no new beta, so the one you're using is the same you've used before. Maybe a security software is blocking Diving Log from writing the file? Nothing has changed on my side since the September beta. I try to send you a new beta with the marine life export soon.

I've updated the beta now and it has a new "MarineLife" tag. You can download the zip file from here.
