Finally moving lekhonee to PyKDE4.
Main reason is to add spellcheck support, which looks very easy in KDE land than Qt.
On the other side, I was looking for a photo catalogue software which can catalogue my photos on DVD or any other removable media, it should also allow me to search them based on EXIF data and tags and should show thumbnail(s) in the result. I generally use digikam and gthumb too manage and view the photos. In digikam I never being properly able to catalogue photos on DVD (never tried on the last few updates) and gthumb is too slow in showing the thumbnail or full screen views for the large size photos I take. I prefer gthumb over over digikam to view the photos due to the simpler UI.
Finally decided to write my own app for this, which will not have any editing features, Gimp is the tool I use for editing. Watch this video (3.2MB) and please comment if the thumbnail creation / viewing is fast or not ?
Took some nice vacation from IRC in the last week. Now back on track again. In the current todo list:
The scope of development is to create a rudimentary tool that can allow comparing the quality of string translations in an offline mode. For example, the KDE Project uses a web based tool that allows strings to be searched in translated content.
The current set of requirements for this offline tool are:
It uses PyQt4 for the gui, used QWebView to render the result. You will also require translate-toolkit (at least 1.0.1 version, available in Fedora 9).
Among the new features (mostly in the command line version) , using -t or –term you can search for any single term. You can even check for unattached dependent vowel signs of Indic languages using -d option.
Here is another small example based tutorial to show how you can use ComboBox and StatusBar in PyQt. You can see it here.
I just added another video on creating a very small and stupid image viewer using PyQt4. You can see or download it from here. Please comment on what else you want to see.
The original video can be found here .
Again Trolltech is showing their support to the open source community. Just waiting to see a Neo with Qtopia on it :)
