What's going on in Rippix development

Item posted by Aljosha Papsch <alip2890> on Sun 26 Feb 2012 04:54:59 PM UTC.

Until the 3.4 release of Rippix I simply tried to make Rippix work with GTK+ 3. I have achieved this goal basically: Rippix 3.4 compiles only with a few warnings and runs without crashes. But it can do better: Usage of UI files for example (those that are generated by Glade), or removal of the plain text configuration file. And, as I say in the Rippix' description, it should provide a more pleasant user interface.
Based on these thoughts I'm currently working on the following:

  • I replace the manually creating and nesting of GTK+ widgets with UI files. The new files windowmaker.c/h provide a nice wrapper to GtkBuilder.
  • The plain text configuration file and the _config structure gets replaced by GConf. rw_config.c/h contain the new functions. All usages of the _config structure need to be replaced with respective calls.
  • The user interface gets polished: Instead of text entries Rippix will use a icon view when entering the song names.

Because these modifications will need some time, there will be no new release of Rippix for now. Take a look at the Git repo at Savannah for the newest code. Unfortunately, Rippix won't compile successfully atm.
Everyone is welcome to work with me on Rippix.
