:I've added it to the first category. If it makes sense, a KDE application should support session management, so it belongs to the basics. Thus, category Introduction to KDE4 Programming. Ok?

Reorganisation

Okay, it's starting to get to the point where we need to reorganise this page a little. Some of the sections have 5 or so tutorials (like i18n and dbus) which is perfect because they're all on the same topic. However, the "Getting started" section is messy. All I think should be in there is "Introduction To KDE 4 Programming", "Introduction to CMake", "Using Qt Designer to build user interfaces" and "Debugging your application" since they're all necessary introductory tutorials.
However, we still have a number of tutorials which will have nowhere to go such as "Command-line Args", "Drag and Drop" and other 'one-off' tutorials like those. Maybe a "Misc" category (though those always look messy)?
Any Thoughts? --milliams 23:15, 6 January 2007 (CET)

personally i think it's still premature to do a reorg. once we have a few dozen more tutorials we'll probably have a -much- better idea of what we'll need to do. as for the getting started topic, i completely agree with your assessment aside from debugging, as that has a group of three tutorials already. we could have a "application basics" category for things like command line args and drag and drop? --Aseigo 06:46, 31 January 2007 (CET)

Orphaned Pages

There are 2 tutorials which are not linked to from here, so they are orphaned and nobody will find them. See Orphaned Pages. I am not sure to which section they belong.

good question. i'd put the porting one in its own category to be honest; the qt-dom one might go into the "application basics" category i proposed above since xml parsing is such a common thing now? --Aseigo 06:46, 31 January 2007 (CET)

Programme layout

Hi all, I hope this is the right place to make this observation.

Something that I'd find really useful would be a discussion about project layout for KDE4 applications. How, using CMake, is the best way to layout a non-trivial application? What is the practice with regard to developing library and applications under a single CMake project and creating the correct build dependencies, making sure the includes are handled correctly etc?

I'm not 100% sure what heading this concept should go under. It touches on general development, CMake use and even a bit on SVN layout etc. --Borker

Missing HowTos

  • Plasmoids - I would really like to get some info about how to create a plasmoid.

New tutorial "session management" - where to put it?

I've made a new tutorial session management, based on some older KDE3 documents and parts of the respective KDE4 documentation. Where can I put this tutorial in this site? I'm not sure about the category...

I've added it to the first category. If it makes sense, a KDE application should support session management, so it belongs to the basics. Thus, category Introduction to KDE4 Programming. Ok?
