    LinuxICE2 3 week dev marathon - Requests Open

    If you are a user of LinuxICE, or want to be, and are missing that "killer feature", now is the time to speak up. I'll be asking the wife and kids to let me stay up some late nights to get some killer plugins developed for LinuxICE2 starting next week. Hopefully, if you are a developer of sorts (all languages apply), you'll use this list to chose a feature and nail it down. Not familiar with the nghost plugin system? I'll also spend this three week period hand holding anyone who wants to dev a plugin for LinuxICE/nGhost.

    Here's what I've got on my mind to do. Please help me decide which features you want most:

    - Make nscan "just work"
    - Make obdgpslogger/plug-and-play just work
    - Vehicle efficiency indicators in NCarInfo ( green == good, red == bad)
    - VOne plug (for the valentine 1 radar scanner
    - OSDash client and UI (for something)
    - Improve documentation on the website.

    If you are a dev, these may be a good something to try to make a plugin for:

    - m4-atx nghost plugin (code exists, just need UI and plugin)
    - Boomzbox plugin
    - Any OSDash web service
    - Create a skin 100%

    Some crazy ideas that make huge changes to nGhost:

    - Convert graphics engine/event system to use QGraphics
    - General push for more speed and stability in nGhost's core
    - Make another frontend work on LinuxICE (including packaging): RevFE and/or OpenMobile

    If you want to tackle a feature, let me know. If you would like to see me tackle any of these feature for the marathon, let me know. I'll do as many as I can depending on what you want and the effort involved.

    Let's make LinuxICE awesome!

    Ok,

    Guess I will have to throw out some ideas...

    1. I would love to see EFL integrated/supported in LinuxICE. To see an example of what that could end up looking like, see enna.geexbox.org. I know EFL libraries are like FOREVER in development, but at least the guys are starting to talk about an Alpha release.

    2. Add playlist support

    3. I'm not sure about this one: Make sure LinuxICE plays nice with pulseaudio (given that is the default setup, and no I don't know why, of most distros)

    4. Use the database to its full extent.... ie: add in searching and basic library management capabilities

    5. Since I haven't had a chance to try out your recent changes -- this may already be fixed, but add in the ability to continue from where you left off after a restart (maybe save position of the song / video every 30 seconds?)

    I'm sure I will come up with more ideas as I think about it....

    Signups:

    Current signups:

    feature - developer:
    nscan - kshots
    db access to use qt4 - kshots (will improve speed/stability)
    use phonon as default player - kev000
    general qt4-ization (process, sockets, xml, qpainter?) - kev000

    I think I can sign up for some of that...

    It seems ng2 is moving towards utilizing qt4, so I'll go ahead and re-write nscan to utilize qt4 (specifically, this) rather than inotify. As I understand it, nobody adjusted it to recursively scan subdirectories... I'll make sure that happens in the re-write (I originally intended to do this, but got bogged down with weird socket errors using the nghostnet library, and hadn't touched it for about a year). I'll use QFileSystemWatcher in conjunction with a recursive QDir search to add directories when called for.

    I think I'm also going to convert the project into a cmake project - seems to be the way a lot of other projects are going, and it clearly has superior in-project dependency tracking (as far as determining what needs to be compiled in what order).

    Beyond that... well, we'll see if I have any time left afterwards

    2 and 4 - great idea! 5 is done (as of nGhost 2.5.1). 4 shouldn't be an issue. it's been playing nice after a few fixes and updates in the linuxice repo. 1 would be cool, but would be a *huge* change. just like a change to qgraphics. but it's a good idea nonetheless

    if the qpainter replacement for sdl goes well, kinetic scrolling won't be difficult at all. Hopefully these new under-the-hood changes will help empower some very cool new features in the future, which is the idea.

    I've branched the code and made the first commit to what will become nGhost 2.6. Here are the new URLs:

    https://nghost.svn.sourceforge.net/s...t/libnghost-qt
    https://nghost.svn.sourceforge.net/s...hes/nghost2-qt

    We'll keep this thread going with updates. Hopefully, we can get as many people involved in new/cool features as possible.

    update: malcom2073 said he is working on a library to read the boomzbox hd radio. If anyone wants to pick up the plugin work for that, I'd be willing to help them out...

    2. Add playlist support....We have a winner here!! Also I was researching xsplash on the internet and it described how it is faster than usplash as far as cutting down on the bootup. Wonder if it would work with LinuxICE2. Also would be nice to have nweather completely operational from initial installation, with a gui configuration tool so you can change the zip code without having to edit anything...Just a thought!!!

    what i could use is allready written in the bugtracker as feature requests:

    http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=63&pos=0
    http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=64&pos=1
    http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=65&pos=2
    http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=66&pos=3
    http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=67&pos=4

    the last one is mainly to help those who have systems without disk drives other than the harddrive... there is a lot of features i could add but since i'm not a programmer i dont feel like pushing my luck
    Blessed are the "cracked" for it is they who let in the light.
