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.


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! =)

This is a roughly sorted list of tasks that popped out during the meeting. We probably need to categorize it better, like seeing which task is blocker for which other, setting priority, split between "research" and "coding" and things like that. Still sounds like a premature thing though.


Major Bugs

None! =)


  • pull in options from kdesktop/minicli.cpp and merge into shell and app runners
  • ServiceRunner: better matching (case insensitivity, substring matching, performance, etc)
  • Search Runner: use strigi (blocked by Xesam)
  • listen to async match updates (Interface:updateMatches())
  • determine how to order runner plugins for searching; categorization?
  • runners, runners and more runners!


  • options slide drawer animation



This is what we are focusing on implementing right now:

  • general libplasma
    • unit tests.
    • api documentation reviews
    • XML Config: add support for unsupported data types (these are documented in the API docu)
    • Applet needs a way to access resources for customization (think: clock faces)
  • Applets
    • application launcher interface
    • taskbar (Robert Knight; others welcome to help)
    • systray (Alexander Rodin; others welcome to help)
    • on mouse over, show a set of small buttons that allow for the following actions: close, configure, lock, information and move. aseigo has graphics for the buttons already. (manyoso)
    • 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
  • plasmagik
    • unit tests
    • resuscitate trunk/playground/base/plasma/plasmagik (adjam)
  • bindings
    • QtScript bindings are being worked on (rdale)
  • 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 (aseigo)
  • Corona (QGraphicsScene subclass)
    • 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
  • Views
    • Implement configurable background painting. This can in part be ported from kdesktop for DesktopView. Should be plugin based.
    • Create a dashboard view (full screen, always on top)
  • DataEngine
    • Configuration parameters for sources

We also have:

  • Implement Zack's physical equations for animations

Nice to have:

  • Implement python bindings of Plasma
  • Associate units with a data source's data?
