==== Runners ====
 
==== Runners ====
* pull in options from kdesktop/minicli.cpp and merge into shell and app runners
+
* runners, runners and more runners!
* ServiceRunner: better matching (case insensitivity, substring matching, performance, etc)
+
* CalculatorRunner: complete ('''Baris''')
+
* Search Runner: use strigi
+
* listen to async match updates (Interface:updateMatches())
+
* determine how to order runner plugins for searching; categorization?
+
* runners, runners and more runners! e.g. a kalkhi plugin...?

==== Interface ====
* abstract out the svg background part of Interface and have it subclass QDialog; then make screensaver/lock dialogs subclass that and therefore look a bit more sexy and consistent ('''Baris''')

** unit tests.
 
** api documentation reviews
 
** XML Config: add support for unsupported data types (these are documented in the API docu)
 
** layout code improvements (HuntsMan)

** more unit tests.
  
* '''bindings'''
+
* '''Plasma::Applet'''
** QtScript bindings are being worked on
+
** add global settings config page, if it exists in the Package (which means adding a pair of entries in packages.cpp for globalconfigui and globalconfigxml), alongside the per-applet ones
** need to re-evaluate the place of KRoss in the all of this
+
** a way to access resources for customization (think: clock faces)
 
+
* '''RootWidget''' (the "desktop")
+
** Controls box: an expand-on-mouse-over widget that sits on top of the graphicsview and provides discoverable access to zooming, jumping, configuration, adding of elements, locking ...? Currently needs to pretty-fied and the more "techie" options removed

* '''Corona''' (QGraphicsScene subclass)
 
* '''Corona''' (QGraphicsScene subclass)
** Item groups: a container to group items (mostly applets, really) and handle layouting and level of detail
 
** Zooming: 3-level zooming needs to be supported. 100% == 1 item group at full zoom; 50% == all item groups visible with panning with each item replaced by a simple icon; 10% == all item groups visible without panning, each group replaced by a simple icon and items not painted at all
 
** Saving and loading of layouts (Alexis)
 
** The concept of form factor needs to move out of Corona and into the item group class
 
  
 
* '''Views'''
 
* '''Views'''
** Currently there is DesktopView which is, somewhat obviously, the desktop view onto the Corona
 
** Implement configurable background painting. This can in part be ported from kdesktop for DesktopView. Should be plugin based.
 
** Create a panel view
 
** Create a dashboard view (full screen, always on top)
 
  
 
* '''Widgets''' [[../Widgets|Here is a page describing the nature of these widgets]]. Widgets still needed that aren't implemented yet are:

Warning
If you clear a task, please write "Completed" near it. If you are still working on it, please put your name. Percentage of the work done is accepted.

[edit] Tasks

If you want to claim a task, please put your name (or nickname, both is better) in brackets near the task you wish to claim. Please add it when you start working on it, and if you stop, please remove it, so we can know "who is working on what" and what tasks still needs to be started.

And, of course, this will avoid duplication of work. Thanks a lot! =)
