Here’s the latest screenshot of an IDE i’m putting together using the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries). You can check it out from http://git.enlightenment.org/devs/ajwillia-ms/edi.git – let me know what you think… Continue reading Update on progress with EDI
It was over 10 years ago that I started coding on Enlightenment, having discovered the window manager at Uni back when E 0.16 was what the cool geeks were using. The project was busy and full of excitement about the new libraries (EFL), the rewrite of the window manager for 0.17 and the many features this would provide. 3 years of fun coding later, many … Continue reading Enlightened 2014
LinuxCon Europe 2013 was in Edinburgh – seriously – it makes sense given our city’s increasing relevance in the global tech scene but a surprise nonetheless. The event brought such celebrities as Linus Torvalds, Chris Aniszczyk, Carsten Haitzler (rasterman) and some of the coding stars who heroically released Enlightenment 0.17 less than a year earlier. It was with excitement that I found there was to … Continue reading Catching up on Enlightenment
OK, so after planning this theme for ages I finally decided to get into it… So far it is no where near complete – it has many “defaulting” parts and a few features need to be tweaked, but here it is: Stay posted for new news, hopefully I will get this up on get-e soon. Continue reading FlatCurve emerges
OK, so as every other enlightenment user on the planet I decided that I wanted a theme that looked just like I wanted. Unfortunately I could never get inspiration. Until now. Enter“Flat-Curve” (please email me for suggestions for a better name). Asimple theme that promotes flat colour and reduces complexity toproduce a compelling and easy to use theme. I have just uploaded a first mock-up, … Continue reading Themes at last
Oh baby yeah! The e17 engage module now accepts .eapp XDND drops – trygrabbing a .eapp file in evidence and dropping it – pretty cool no? 🙂very exciting! Oh, also the e_util_eapp_edit application now acts as adrag source, so you can drag the icon it has loaded into engage too 🙂 Continue reading Engage module accepts DROPs
OK, so as a distraction from all the paperwork at home I set out on a small mission – we should be able to browse our edje (.eet & .eapp) files in our browser! So, a download of the plugin SDK and a hack in the mozilla source later and we have this: The page being viewed is simply OK, so I need to tidy up the code … Continue reading Firefox plugin
OK, so anyone who tried may have noticed that java behaves a tadpeculiarly in e17. We assumed this was because there was a bug in out(still very young) code. However, after quite a bit of debugging itseemed not. Now, me being “blessed” with Java experience was assignedto find the issue and… 3 days later having gone through some nastylow level (in the VM, not the … Continue reading BLOODY JAVA!!!
OK, so I got bored and everything else was going slow so I startedporting engage to an e17 module. I decided not to port, insteadre-wrote almost from scratch as engage has quite a few issues. Istarted with ibar and stripped out a lot, added a few features thenported in zoom_function (the only remaining piece of code from genneth[with speed improvements]). Right now it is just … Continue reading Engage + E17 = teh win!
OK so e17 went into a freeze the other day so we can try to tidy up loose ends and make sure all bugs are kept in toe. Everyone is now working on tidying everything up and testing as much as possible. As part of this the pager got a complete re-write and now supports multiple “zones” as well as virtual desktops. Oh – also … Continue reading E17 code freeze
