Class design tool

I learned today that there is a class design tool in Visual Studio which took some years to figure out. It's not a built-in part of VS2019 but should be. Seeing the class hierarchy in visual level shows "problems" in inheritance very clearly. Although the class hierarchy can be anything you want, but often a tree-like hierarchy is better, from simple to more complex classes.

There are huge stacks of single use classes in both Kaduria and Teemu which looks kind of funny. I think with this new tool it's easier to fix class hierarchy and it's going to be my short term life goal for sure.

I don't yet know what to do with Teemu's github adventure. I actually hate github and source control, because as we saw anything can happen. I feel it's also unneccessarily complex system, but that's typical in the linux/open source scene. Everything is super complex and obfuscated for no clear reason.

Github failure

Suddenly out of nowhere Visual Studio's github extension reset project files of Teemu (sln, vxproj etc.) to beginning of the project, removing all paths and settings, even to a point that it added already removed files to list of files going to github.

In response I removed github extension, because I still want to develop my projects in Visual Studio. It's still, with all its flaws, much better than let's say Code::Blocks. But since I can't really use or trust github extension it had to go.

I know there are github gui's for other than command line use for github, but it's unclear if I have to remove the current github project and start a new one. After this I've been thinking twice about source control. Yes, it's probably a good idea, but what if something goes wrong? It's feels less reliable now when I know it can change files for no obvious reason. What if it changes some random source files and you can't figure it out until days or weeks later?

Teemu at Github

Teemu can be now found in github: https://github.com/paulpekkarinen/Teemu in its development state and also later as finished version 1.3.

If you look closely you can see it has grown from the previous version and there is even an attempt to create a role-playing system in it.
