Ark TODO

Harald currently working on

  • Formalize the dbus communication protocol and implement it in dolphin
  • Clean up the command line parameters (better names, descriptions)
    • Find a solution to the current directory problem with service menus
  • Batch extract does not use the extract dialog information yet
  • The extract dialog needs to be able to settable to batch extract mode
  • Find somewhere in svn to stick the service menu

Things not started yet

  • The Ark KPart needs a way set password for protected archives
  • The current state of creating archives/adding files needs to be checked (So far only extracting has been worked on)
  • Figure out what menu elements we want for the service menu.

Some use cases for commandline options

  • Extracting a single file into the current directory, automatically creating a subfolder

ark --batch --autosubfolder lala.tar.gz

  • Same, with a dialog

ark --batch --autosubfolder --dialog lala.tar.gz

  • Extract lots of archives into a single directory

ark --batch --destination /tmp lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Same, but use a subfolder

ark --batch --destination /tmp --subfolder mystuff lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Extract lots of archives into separate directories

ark --batch --destination /tmp --autosubfolder lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Into a single subfolder

ark --batch --subfolder lala.tar.gz
