as I already said I am currently developping the C++ API of slack-get. I also wrote that I am concentrating on usefull part of the API, skipping the generative parts that are not absolutly required at the moment. So in parallel to this development, I made some tests for the graphical user interface. I came up with the conclusion that there is 2 different way to use slack-get :
- Keep a Slackware box up-to-date by installing security fixes and Slackware patches
- Keep a box up-to-date, upgrade and install packages (but not patches)
I starts coding a little widget (Slackget::QSimpleUpdate). This one looks like that :
I am interested in any opinion/advice/suggestion concerning this. The code of this proof-of-concept is available on the SVN (in trunk/src/QSimpleUpdate/). I made it themable thanks to Qt4 support of CSS.
So far, I think it is a quite fine dock application. I wanted it to be simple to get working, and I also wanted that this widget is able to display enough informations.
That's all for today
