Folding@Home dark mode web client with real time GPU/CPU PPD by WU benchmarking for comparison to other folders.

Description from store A Complete Dark Mode Redesign for Folding@Home Sure it's dark and bruiting and we like that, But in addition it's a replacement of the default F@H web client that does the following great things for you: NEW - Timer (Time of Use) shifting allows you to set a time to start folding and finish folding so you can fold at off peak power usage times or to manage seasonal heat. NEW - View a recent time allocation breakdown of research your system was working to better understand why your PPD varies due to different research projects. NEW - UI Theme skin picker that allows you the flexibility to chose your style regardless of your team affiliation. NEW - Monitor style picker to allow you adapt your favorite UI Theme to a number of retro style display colors. NEW - Code and UI redesign to streamline the use of space and put more of a focus on the research being completed in a modern responsive UI that has been optimized to feel / be more responsive. - Get a baseline PPD for the GPU/CPU and project you are currently folding to see how your system compares to the community average and your personal recent averages due to different work units. - GPU/CPU performance update stats are real-time to show you +/- percent changes in PPD performance as you use or tweak your system. - GPU/CPU performance information has links directly to your hardware's performance data on our database site overall and by project. - Optional charting of work unit history / performance enables benchmarking and review while folding to better understand changes in PPD during folds or when adjusting your systems hardware settings. This helps to identify how different projects and the folds within them can swing PPD and how you use your computer while folding does too. - Client automatically sends your GPU and CPU WU PPD to add it to the global database for all folders to benefit from. - Did we mention, it's a dark theme for the F@H web client and it's FREE?! HOW TO USE? Once FOLDING IN THE DARK AT HOME is installed, just make sure your system is running folding@home then navigate to the standard web client interface URL https://client.foldingathome.org/ this will trigger the dark mode to start running in place of the standard web client. REQUIREMENTS: Only runs on computers with the folding@home folding / web client running. https://foldingathome.org/start-folding/ Features in the extension such as averages, timeline, time of use start/stop and research time allocation only record when this page is left open.

Version 2.0.0 Beta - Complete Redesign of Web Client - Responsive Bootstrap 4 - Performance optimizations for stats displayed on screen - Additional data points provided such as system and slot level PPD averages - Timeline of recent system activity - Research time allocation of recent types of research folded - Time of use power management to start / stop folding during certain hours - UI Themes that can be selected regardless of team - UI Monitor emulation to style themes in retro monitor types/colors Version 1.1.5 - F@H Server API Update - Changes to folding.lar.systems API paths to prepare for server upgrades as the database grows. Version 1.1.4 - F@H Server API Update - Addition of new stats API path to continue support of user and project info. Version 1.1.2 0 Beta Updates & Patches --------------------------------------------- - Addition of CPU support via per logical processor PPD scoring with website CPU database coming shorty once a critical number of CPU samples have been collected. - Removal of animated GIFs to remove 3D GPU overhead caused by the GIF animations - Addition of optional Charting component that can be toggled open / closed to enable benchmarking and historical view of PPD per slot performance as WU is folding. Charts can be hidden to remove 3D GPU overhead when not being used. - Addition of PPD Total at top of screen for multi-slot users to be able to gauge performance of all slots at a glance. - UI Layout changes to hardware folding slot layout to provide detailed information at a glance for each slot without the need to click the slot to view PPD, points etc. - Friendly names applied to folding slots for GPUs and CPUs. - GPUs current performance is shown via indicator on PPD score showing the +/- percent of the current PPD over the average baseline. Positive values show green, negative red for at a glance monitoring. - General CSS updates and optimizations - General JavaScript optimizations Version 1.1.1 – Beta Updates & Patches --------------------------------------------- New Feature - No sleep mode and animation toggle states will be persistent, with storage of the variables held in the extension itself. This will return the plug-in to it's last known state after browser updates, page refreshes etc. Version 1.1.0 – Beta Updates & Patches --------------------------------------------- Fix - Case where project description does not match currently displayed GPU comparison WU project ID when in no sleep mode.

Latest reviews

  • (2023-09-02) River Wolf: It's useful, but I don't run Folding@home locally, and I can't seem to be able to use it when Folding@home is running on anything but a local setup. Perhaps consider adding an option to specify an address where I can point Folding@home in the dark to?
  • (2022-10-21) Michael G: Great extension, love that it helps to contribute to the database!
  • (2022-09-06) Owen Smith: Looks really nice, and easy on the eyes. More than you'd expect when looking for a dark theme, but def appreciated!
  • (2021-09-20) Jamie Bally: Was great but has suddenly turned yellow with a banano skin. I would like an option to enable or disable this skin
  • (2021-05-14) Rob Kruger: It's good and would be 5 stars if the pause and finish buttons swapped colors. Red for finish and yellow for pause would be better.
  • (2020-10-28) J Rivet: Very helpful - thank you!
  • (2020-10-27) Red: Lots of useful information + dark mode = Almost perfection. One issue: Only works with https://client.foldingathome.org/ , not the lag-free version http://localhost:7396/
  • (2020-10-26) Pranay: Thank you!
  • (2020-10-13) Shazad Rayaz: Works great
  • (2020-08-30) Eclipse: Best and only extension (afaik) that does a great job to give you additional details, make a leaderboard of all cards (old and new) with live update of PPD when new WUs come out and work gets submitted. Also, dark theme is something that I've been going crazy about, it helps with eye soreness when checking your cards via web UI. On some systems, I do not even use Advanced Control anymore after setting the rig up (where I always used it up until I saw this extension).
