New version of TradeTrax!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 by spiralspy

The v1.4 update took a wee bit longer than I had anticipated. In particular because I got really annoyed with the calculator component. When I sell something, I want to be able to type SELLPRICE – AUCTIONHOUSE_FEE into the liquidation form. That is, transparently route the input through the calculator. Only problem: half of the world uses a comma as the decimal mark, while the other uses a full stop. The 3rd party parser I was using so far is only able to the later, so I had to write my own expression evaluator. It was fun in a sense and I probably totally over engineered it.

Anyways, here’s the changelog for TradeTrax v1.4. It’s mostly under the hood changes and usability improvements.
