FAD PUNE 2010
Posted: 2010-05-31T16:18:37+05:30

So this weekend we had FAD Pune 2010. Being organizer the main issue was to get inside the office before everyone else :)


Among the things done:
  • Packaged accessx ( with help from Sayamindu to patch it for Fedora)
  • Updated code in Pony so that it works with new flickrapi API (committed but not pushed yet)
  • Now we have cover images in Pathagar , the digital library system.
  • Helped people with packaging
Yesterday in the last hours almost everyone were busy with packaging and helping each other. Had fun with all other contributors for 2 days, now getting back to the normal routine. Photos will come up later this week. I also recorded Sayamindu’s talk on OLPC as a downstream of Fedora project, you can view it here (111MB).

lekhonee-gnome 0.9.1 is released
Posted: 2010-04-29T15:29:22+05:30

I am happy to announce the release of lekhonee-gnome 0.9.1 . You can download the source or check for koji builds for F12 or F13. New features are like:

  • Supports multiple Wordpress accounts
  • Tabbed UI for different modes
  • Now supports adding <br> tag using tool button
  • Preview mode (more details on this below)
  • Advertisement message is disabled for this release
  • Stopped segfault(s) in couple of corner cases
  • Supports <video> and <audio> tags in Visual and preview mode (you may have to write the details in HTML mode)
  • Can watch youtube videos in Preview mode (not an actual feature :p )
So the main two new features are multiple account handling and Preview mode. In the preview mode you can see how the post will look like in your blog with the theme you are having. To fetch the blog style please click on the small download style/theme button in the toolbar (this button will only come in the toolbar if you don’t have cached theme downloaded in your system), though you need internet connection for this mode to work.

FOSS.IN 2009 in a total
Posted: 2009-12-11T17:01:26+05:30

5 days of full of excitement and fun. This year I tried to break/arrange my times in few things I wanted to work on. So the first decision was not to take many photos , I tried to keep my camera inside my bag only. The idea worked, I found more time on hand than last few years. From the speaker’s list I already knew who else is coming so fix up my mind according to that.

On the first day we took charge of the Fedora booth. Kital, Heimanshu sat on the table, /me and Sayamindu sat on the ground behind the table and started discussing many things. Next table was full with KDE-IN team with many swags. Day 1 I spent mostly meeting old friends and talking. It was nice to meet Kital once again :)

I managed to find Girish Ramakrishnan in a table in the first floor. So asked for his help to have a long waiting feature in pony. I wanted to view images with a semi-transparent background just like picasa does in windows systems. While working on it Prashanth Udupa also joined and helped to visualize what I was trying to achieve. Finally it was done with 2 lines of code :)

I also had a plan to sit with Sayam and discuss two of projects , Jukebox and Lekhonee. Got couple of unknown areas cleared in sugar activities. In lekhonee-gnome I tried to have a WYSIWYG editor using gtkwebkit and later also tried libabiword. This work is not completed yet. Will see which one comes out better.

Meanwhile 2nd day of the event was Fedora Project of the day. Mether, Kiltal, Kedar, /me, Shrink, Susmit, Ankur, Heimanshu many others were there. I gave a talk on python-newt module and tried to show how easy to use that while developing console based applications.

This year was again special as Milosch and Brita came again to FOSS.IN. Russ Nelson also joined along with his talk on arduino boards. /Me and Sayam bought two boards from a Bangalore based firm in the same day. Milosch gave an inspirational talk on how one should start working hardware based projects. He bought me couple of cool gifts so that I can start working of my own. He and Russ had great workshop on 8 bit and 32 bit (OpenBeacon) small computers. I spent the last two days of the event with them only learning small small things. One of the biggest outcome of the event is computerclub.in (not ready yet), a group to work on hardware-software related stuffs. We have our initial mailing list and sf.net project created. Please join if you are interested. The Bangalore group already fixed their first physical meeting.

The event ended with a great performance trdp. Enjoyed the show too much, never took out my camera :)

All shots can be found here.

Kital is giving the first talk on Fedora Security Spin. The room is not full yet, people are still coming in slowly. Kital just a very nice example of robbing bank and how one should go ahead to plan and execute that :)
