Akonadi Braindump

Ideas/notes etc. on various open issues in Akonadi.

Akonadi Standard Actions

Idea: Have something like KStandardAction for Akonadi that not only includes the representation of the action but also its state management and the actual operations. Like libakonadi that should be splitted into a generic, type-independent part and be extensible for type-specific actions. This will enable code sharing among many applications and guarantee consistent actions everywhere.

State management: watch selection models of a collection and/or item model.

Use KXMLGUI for context menus in standard views to allow easy extensibility with custom actions.

Generic actions:

  • new collection
  • new virtual collection
  • delete collection
  • copy collection
  • cut collection
  • paste collection
  • synchronize collection
  • show collection
  • delete item(s)
  • copy item(s)
  • cut item(s)
  • paste item(s)
  • paste native data
  • tag item(s)
  • comment item
  • rate item(s)

The list is definitely long enough to make this worthwhile.

KMail Breakdown Plan

The current plan is to put some parts of KMail into a stand-alone library, independent of KMail. This increases code reuse (for example, the message composer could be shared with Mailody) and makes the code a lot easier to maintain and to port to Akonadi.
