(unrelated development schedule: Schedules/KDE4/4.0_Release_Beta_Goals)

every part of the KDE libraries needs tutorial documentation. this is a survey. (note: the lists of modules could be taken from a release doc or something.....) tutorials should answer: "why would I use KDE over just QT?"

KDE glue

what defines a KDE app?

  • localization
  • consistent menus, accelerators, toolbars, chrome, icons
  • transparent file access
  • simple, cross-platform build system
  • shared technology
  • testing
  • documentation
  • open source
  • inviting for new users and contributors

everyday tech

  • Hello World: this is the simplest KDE app; proves your dev environment is working and gives you confidence to continue coding!
  • CMake: how to create your own app; and plug in other libraries
  • KActions: setting up menus, toolbars, and accelerators
  • Internationalization and localiazation
  • QT Designer: designing a widget-based interface
  • KConfigXT: persistent app config data. making the settings dialog. using the settings
  • KPixmapCache:
  • KIO: tranparent file access. how does it work with the QT libraries?
  • ThreadWeaver: performs "jobs" that can be scheduled on non-UI threads

pillars of KDE4

  • Solid: getting info about hardware
  • Phonon: use audio and video in your app
  • Strigi: find data. also how to let strigi use your filetype
  • Plasma: creating a new desktop paradigm
  • Nepomuk: relation to Strigi? file metainfo, relationships
  • Decibel: connecting to other people
  • Akonadi: communcations storage backend
  • Oxygen: devs need to know how to access all of the icon and sound that this team has put together. (and maybe know how to give feedbacks or make commissions.) there should be doc about doing for yourself what the Oxygen team does
  • Sonnet


other

  • job progress
  • D-Bus

PIM stuff

  • Khalkhi: contacts framework
  • KitchenSync
  • syndication etc.
