PKanaEditor new version proof of concept
I never talk about my private life (or very few), but this time it had an influence on my Open Source work !
So here is the information : I will be married by june !
And my futur wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon in Japan... So make the link by yourself between this journey and PKanaEditor
So I have begin to code a proof of concept in C++/Qt4 and with some surprise it works pretty good ! Have a look at this screenshots :
Moreover, my new mission force me to code under microsoft windows xp, so I tried to recompile this PoC under windows and it works too ! Have a look :
Dudes from Trolltech made some incredible works ! I know it works since years but I didn't put my hands on a windows computer in more than 8 years, and at this time I wasn't programming at all... I was too young ;-).
I now lack the XML loading of the data file and this PoC will be a stable version
For those who are interested in Qt programming, I do the trick translating romanji to (hiraga|kataka)na|kanji by subclassing QListWidgetItem and adding a _romanji internal QString to this item. The actual displayed character is set as the item text. Pretty simple, like the major part of Qt programming !!
The only real problem is to find a new meaning to the "P" of PKanaEditor (because it originally means Perl Kana Editor)...
