Randa sprint wrap-up and considerations on packaging complex applications with AppImage

On Sunday, this year’s KDE sprint in Randa, Switzerland came to an end and I am now back home. It was a productive and fun week, as always when meeting the other KDE folks. I spent a lot of time on polishing things and fixing small issues mostly in KDevelop, such as: reduce flickering of the completion widget in kdevelop fix various cases where KDevelop’s navigation widget (see above) would […]

KDevelop 5.0 standalone executable for Linux

I am currently at the KDE sprint in Randa, Switzerland. There are about 40 nice people here, working on making KDE software awesome. This year’s focus is on deploying our software more nicely — on Windows and OS X, but on Linux as well. Especially for user-faced applications like KDevelop, it really makes a big difference whether you use today’s version, or the one from two years ago. Many people […]

kdev-python on Windows: try it!

I spent the last two or three days playing around with KDE on Windows, with the aim of getting my Python language plugin for KDevelop to run there. In the end, it wasn’t that hard to get this to work — not as hard as I would have expected it to be, anyways. Several things needed to be fixed in kdev-python, the build system required a bit of tickling, but […]

kate / KDevelop sprint in Berlin

The last few days, we had a joint kate and KDevelop sprint in Berlin. I finally found the time to fix up the Python language support plugin for KDevelop, which was in a quite bad shape in the last few months. Most importantly, the 1.7-py3 branch now supports Python 3.4.3, and the master branch supports KF5 (this mostly thanks to Laurent, who did most of the porting) and Python 3.5, […]

KDevelop / Kate sprint in Barcelona in January 2014

Last week I have been in Barcelona at the KDevelop / Kate sprint with all the other nice people working on those projects. As always, it was very cool to meet everyone again and spend a week together improving software. A big thanks to the organizers and sponsors, too! Since most of the time I work on a fairly encapuslated subsystem (Python support for KDevelop) and only a smaller part […]

Collaborative editing in KTE (prototype)

I had a bit of spare time, so I decided I’d try to implement collaborative editing in KTextEditor, and see how far I can get in a week. That week is over now — and this is how far I got: Your browser does not support the video tag. (If your browser doesn’t support HTML5 video, here’s a direct link) Technical implementation In the background, all this is based on […]

Various news in kdevelop, kdev-python, kdev-qmljs

Before everything else, I want to send a big “thank you” to our hard-working sysadmins who spent so much time and effort recently on fixing the git servers! It’s working nicely again. Other than that, there’s various news in kdevelop-land: kdev-python now has a branch which builds against upstream python 3.4 (which is not released yet), there’s a few fancy new features in kdev-qmljs (QML / javascript language support for […]
