Distro Watcher 0.10.3 (Plasmoid Script)

Sat, 2015/01/10 - 10:03pm
ThumbnailDistro Watcher 0.10.3
(Plasmoid Script)
The specific plasmoid displays the latest releases of Linux distributions and packages, as published in distrowatch.com. In order to retrieve the relative data, RSS feeds from distrowatch are being used.

The plasmoid consists of two distinct views; the first displaying Linux distributions, the second displaying packages. Switching between views can be accomplished using a KDE tab bar. By clicking to a distribution record, default browser opens distribution's homepage at distrowatch.com. By clicking to a package record, default browser opens package's homepage.

Moreover, users can click to the button in the bottom-right corner of the plasmoid so as to navigate to the distributions' list; favorites can be selected by just clicking to the relative button. Clicking to a distribution record, they are navigated (using the predefault web browser) to the relative distrowatch page. After selecting favorites, as soon as a new release of a favorite distribution is available, a notification pop-up is displayed. Notifications can be disabled using the relative configuration option.

The plasmoid has been written in QML and JavaScript.

Translated to: Greek, Spanish, Russian, Uzbek(Latin), Italian and Lithuanian. If you would like to contribute to translations, visit the relative transifex project at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/distrowatcher/

Notes
- Display depends on distrowatch.com RSS feeds. If the relative RSS changes or it is unavailable, plasmoid display will be broken.
- Data fetching is performed every 15 minutes (default). Users can override the default value via "Distro Watcher Settings".
- If no Internet connection is available, no data will be displayed. Instead, a notification screen is displayed. As soon as network connectivity is re-established and the next fetching point is reached, data display is restored. Users are also able to click to the Reload button and request data to be fetched again.
- Icons have been downloaded from:
http://www.iconarchive.com/show/nuoveXT-icons-by-saki/Apps-tux-icon.html
http://www.iconarchive.com/show/nuoveXT-icons-by-saki/Apps-package-icon.html

Stream from SoundCloud 0.10 (Amarok 2.0 Script)

Sun, 2015/01/04 - 5:15am
Stream from SoundCloud 0.10
(Amarok 2.0 Script)
Stream music from SoundCloud®

Currently this script has only basic features:
* Search for users by typing their username in the search bar
* Search for groups by typing the group name in the search bar with \'group \' at the beginning
* Play tracks from users and groups
* See who users follow, who follows them, their favorite tracks, and what groups they are in
* See group members, contributors, and moderators
* If using Amarok 2.8-git, then you can drag & drop users & groups from the collection tree to the search bar. Doing this in Amarok 2.8 will cause the collection tree to go blank, although you can keep using the script by clearing the search bar

Planned features (in order of planned implementation):
* Search for individual tracks
* Log into your account
* Favorite tracks
* Follow artists
* Display track comments
* Add a comment

Please report bugs in the comments here.

Known issues:
* Amarok automatically sorts everything alphabetically for service scripts, even though SoundCloud returns search results sorted by relevance and playlists in order. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342090
* Cannot drag & drop users and groups into the playlist. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342104
* Cannot search for users and groups with a colon in their name. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342091
* Tracks are shown to have a duration of 0:00. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342097
* SoundCloud sometimes returns different search results for the same search terms. This is an issue with SoundCloud, not this script

If you would like to contribute and know C++ & Qt, you can help by addressing the above issues in Amarok or the following:
