GSoC 2012: Make Plasmate ready for release, report 3

As I mentioned in my previous report my second task is to implement a remote installer. This week I have fixed the ui and a few things in the logic code, from now on the remote installer doesn’t ask the user to specify a temporary directory. So this is how remote installer looks like right now,

the remote installer as a plasmate plugin

the remote installer as a standalone application

GSoC 2012: Make Plasmate ready for release, report 2

This is my second report for my GSoC 2012 project. This week and the next two coming weeks my task is to implement a remote installer. Except from adding the feature into plasmate we also decided to make the remote installer a standalone application.

So far I have implemented the remote installer both as a standalone application and as a plasmate plugin, but the logic code doesn’t work properly yet.

When the remote installer will be finished you will be able to access the remote installer

  • from plasmate via the publish dialog
  • and as a standalone application named plasmaremoteinstaller

So what’s next?
I don’t really like the ui, so I will try to come up with something nicer 🙂 and of course to fix the logic code which doesn’t work properly.

Also, this week I had to integrate the remote installer inside plasmate’s Publish dialog, so I fixed  some bugs that Publisher had.

GSoC 2012: Make Plasmate Ready For Release, Report 1

This year I have been accepted us a GSoC student and my mentor is Sebastian Kügler. My project is to make plasmate ready for release.  This week my task was to populate plasmate with actions and editing options. Until now plasmate didn’t offer any of the usual actions like undo, redo also the user wasn’t able to modify plasmate’s editing options like indentation.

Also I have prepared a screencast in which you can see how plasmate was before and how it now.
