Has anyone thought of setting up a source browser similar to the ones on mamedev.org or MAWS? It would be so much easier to look through things without needing to download the entire source code just to read a few lines of code. Just a thought out there...

The scripts to generate the HTML are included with MAME, so it wouldn't be too hard to set up.

Git's browser is pretty clunky, and it misses the useful color coding and turning #include names into links that Aaron's solution has.

Yeah but it has a nice 'history' button that the MAME source doesn't have smile

There is also the Trac source browser for MESS, but the URL is "secret" :P

Well, is anyone using it? I deleted my local git repo that was used to sync it by accident, so it will be quite some work to restore it.

I was using it both for feed and for source browsing, since my current work connection blocks accesses to ports != 80

nothing I can't live without, I just found it nice to have 'public' source browsing and diff-ing

however, if it's a difficult thing, simply drop it: I'd prefer that you spend your time cleaning up drivers than setting up a new git repo wink

A feed is available from cia.vc: http://cia.vc/stats/project/mess/.rss

I'll try to restore the git one, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to it.

I was using it to link to HEAD versions of source files, e.g. when reporting compile issues to mingw64.
