Main

KNewStuff 2 will have all its files in one dir, one for each app using it. Default will be KStandardDirs::locate("appdata", "addons").

To initialize it call Handler::initLayout();

NOTE: .desktop (metadata) files will be copied in $KDEHOME/services/. You can use KTrader to locate them.

They will be namespaced this way: $appname-$pkgname-$pkgversion-addon.desktop

Packages will be renamed as: $pkgname-$pkgversion.kns

And the file containing release notes will be called $pkgname-$pkgversion.txt

Layout

The following layout will be used:

  • addons/ <-- Note: this name may change
    • installed-list <-- List of installed packages?
    • May we store here infos/configs that applies appwide?
    • $packageName-$packageVersion/
      • metadata file (see the packager section for additional informations)
      • (optional) Icon
      • (optional) Release notes for package
      • $packageName/
        • $file1
        • ...
    • $packageName2-$packageVersion2/
      • metadata file
      • (optional) Icon
      • (optional) Release notes for package2
      • $package2Name/
        • $file1
        • ...
    • Packages/
      • package.kns
      • package2.kns
