Description

5 years ago
In the JavaScript API for downloads, the DownloadList object should have a
method like removeStoppedDownloads, that is similar to the cleanUp method of
nsIDownloadManager.

Add removeFinishedDownloads methods. I'm unclear which changes are desired for the conditional check in removeWhere: Currently it looks like:

         if ((download.succeeded || download.canceled || download.error) &&
             aTestFn(download)) {

Changing it to download.stopped && !download.hasPartialData causes the test_history_expiration test to fail because it expects to have a cancelled test removed from the list.

I think we can change the test so that "let promiseCanceled = downloadTwo.cancel();" becomes "yield downloadTwo.cancel();".

One case I've been thinking about is the one of downloads that have partial data, but are failed rather than canceled. We show them as inactive, failed downloads in the user interface, even though they can be restarted from where they stopped.

History expiration and manual cleanup should remove those downloads (together with their partial data).

Serialization to disk, instead, should include those downloads so that we don't lose the reference to the ".part" file across sessions.

It's safer and simpler if we always call finalize - this does nothing unless it is required, but ensures that we don't leave unreferenced ".part" files (or other metadata in the future).

I'd also check that aDownload is one of those that should be removed, for additional clarity.

I just noticed a pre-existing missing error reporting:

download.finalize(true).then(null, Cu.reportError);

I still have a hard time figuring out a good name for this API, that also finalizes the downloads and has an inner filter.

clearUnneededWhere, removeStoppedWhere, removeFinishedWhere, removeAndFinalizeInactiveWhere, ...

If the aFilterFn argument can be undefined, maybe we can omit "Where":

clearUnneeded, removeStopped, removeFinished, removeAndFinalizeInactive, ...

I think this should also remove failed downloads for which we have
partial data, something like:

I think removeByTimeframe can be removed and easily implemented as a filter function in the history expiration code.

Just call without the argument.

I called the method removeFinished. Do you think it should be changed to return/yield the task rather than return nothing?

We run the deletions in parallel, and the task finishes before they are completed. So, I don't think it's useful to have a reference to the task's promise for the caller.

I'd just say "This parameter may be null or omitted to have no additional filter."

Should wait on this promise before getting the list of downloads.

I used the latest 26.0a1 builds across main platforms (Ubuntu 13.04, Win 7 and Mac 10.7.5) to verify that there is a "Clear List" option in the Downloads panel and "Clear Downloads" Library and these options remove all the finished&stopped downloads from the list.
