Instead of querying each citadel individually, it could be worth using the call to fetch all known citadels: https://stop.hammerti.me.uk/api/citadel/all

Then you could call this once per session or once every few hours (ideally with gzip enabled), and you wouldn't need to fire off an HTTP request each time you came across a new citadel, which might speed up the display of views.

I did not know about the "all" queue, that is definitely the way to go. Thank you very much for that information!
How often would you like jEveAssets to update from that API? once an hour? every 6 hours? once a day? or some other value?

There are maybe 5 - 10 new citadels discovered a day at the moment on average. Maybe it will increase as more explorers get involved with the crowd-sourcing side of it. Checking more often than once an hour probably wouldn't provide a lot of value as there is unlikely to be a new citadel discovered in that time. The API is cached a little bit so that if you called it ridiculously often it wouldn't give you more up-to-date data, it would just chew up your bandwidth. The full list is almost a megabyte at the moment, but it goes down to about 100k IIRC if gzip is enabled.

I would say a sensible rate would be somewhere between once per hour and once per day, but it depends on the application really.

I'm toying with the idea of making an additional api that combines outpost and citadel name/location lookups.

Thank you very much creating the API, it's pure awesomeness! \o/
Also, thank you for suggest using GZip that will save everyone a lot of bandwidth :)
I have set the cache time to 2 hours, feel free to contact me anytime if you need me to increase it.

I will release a bug fix version later today. The code is done, just need to test it thorough.

Seems I need to add new api codes... can that happen?

Wow! I can see assets in citadels! And market orders in citadels! I wasn't expecting this to happen for months.
Feature request: Please allow us to map citadel names like [Citadel #1,123,123,456,789] to memorable names, if only locally.
Thank you so much.

@TheSmokingHertog
I'm not sure what you mean?
If you're referring to the stop.hammerti.me.uk API, it does not need an API Key (just like the price APIs).
If you're having problems with your Eve API keys, please, contact me by mail, so, we can figure out what is wrong.
You can find my email on the wiki

@Johann Hemphill
Your feature request makes sense, but, you should know there is actually a way to add them to the stop.hammerti.me.uk citadel API: The Great Citadel Hunt of 2016
That helps everyone who have items in the citadel. Would that be enough or do you still need the feature?

EDIT:
Market orders as all CCP. Assets is a workaround. jEveAssets now get the asset list twice with different parameters, as assets in citadels only shows up in the flat assets list. jEveAssets, still needs the nested list to know what container each assets is in, so, jEveAssets have to get both - not at all optimal, but, it's the only way ATM.

I just registered for the excellent program you linked.
I think the feature is still worth implementing. There will be citadels that people prefer to keep private and out of the database, and citadels that could benefit from a better name. I imagine being able to right-click on a citadel ID and seeing the option to set name, and then having the list of override mappings stored in Options -> Values -> Citadel Names.

Edit: After playing with it, even after bookmarking my commonly used citadels and refreshing them in the Citadel Hunt, and then updating jEveAssets, they are still not associated with citadel IDs so jEVEAssets cannot benefit. It requires a bunch of other stuff with buy orders to happen before it can make a definite mapping. This feature is definitely needed.

I have added it to the ToDo list, I hope to be able to code it soon (As I think it's a very useful and important feature), but, no promises

There is caching on the website and in jEveAssets, so I would expect that any citadels you upload find their way into jEveAssets within a few hours (3 or less). Did they turn up later?

Not in my jEveAssets client, but when queried directly--yes, at least one of them did https://stop.hammerti.me.uk/api/citadel/1021762992129

My client is erroring out while getting the citadel names
INFO [SwingWorker-pool-2-thread-2] net.nikr.eve.jeveasset.io.online.CitadelGetter - Citadels updating:
ERROR [SwingWorker-pool-2-thread-2] net.nikr.eve.jeveasset.io.online.CitadelGetter - Citadels failed to update

I'll submit a bug report.

Edit: Quick response. After uninstalling Java and reinstalling the latest one that error no longer appears. Just have to wait a few hours for the timer to allow me a full Update to see how this works.

Edit: Did the update and now see my favorite citadel names just like regular stations. Very nice!

Hi - jEVEAssets doesn't seem to work on the current version of Mac OSX (Sierra). On trying to run the .jar, I get the following error:

Downloaded and updated to the latest version of Java, and tried redownloading the app, but neither made any difference.

When updating, I get an error for Citadels:

sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed:
sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

I assume this means jEveAssets is attempting to connect to an external resource and failing for some reason. I haven't yet had a chance to try any local troubleshooting so I don't have much supporting information to offer. Have you seen this before?

EDIT: After adding https://eve.nikr.net to the Exception Site List in the java control panel and updating my java runtime, I am no longer seeing this error.

@Shei Bushaava@Careby
You both need to update to to the latest version of java 8. You can download it from java.com.
It may be a good idea to uninstall all previous version of java, before you install the latest version.

If you need any additional help with installing the latest version of java, just reply here...

Extra info:
UnsupportedClassVersionError = You're using an old version of java (Java 7 or bellow)
SunCertPathBuilderException = You get this because the SSL root certificates in your version of java is out of date.

EDIT:
@Careby
You can remove https://eve.nikr.net to the Exception Site List, jEveAssets does not use SSL to connect to that site (though, that would probably be a good idea, but, my host don't offer it for free, sadly).
