Presets in KDE Observatory November 24, 2009

Posted by Sandro Andrade in planetkde-sandroandrade.

Hi planet,

Now KDE Observatory cames with presets for virtually all KDE projects. Plasma, KDE Libs, and KDE PIM Libs are included by default in all views. Presets can be added for participation in “Top Active Projects”, “Top Developers”, “Commit History”, and “Krazy Report” views, and new user-provided projects can also be included.

Let’s check the “Top Active KDE Projects” for all presets regarding commits occurred in last 7 days:

Presets can be edited and new projects can be included in the Projects configuration page:

If you want to include your own project just add a new entry in Projects configuration page. By default all new created projects are automatically added in the provided views (currently: top active projects, top developers, commit history, and krazy report).

Views can be independently configured for inclusion/removal of preset or user-added projects:

If you are a maintainer of an official KDE project and would like to have it included as a preset in KDE Observatory please first check if it’s already included here. If your project doesn’t appear in that file please contact me. I’ll be glad to make this for you.

What about some additional views in the future ? Bugs, dashboard, more recent commits … 🙂

If you wanna try this stuff, please head to trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/applets/kdeobservatory.

See you,

bugs, dashboard — but maybe also mails to the various -devel mailing lists? And koffice and krita should be in the list 🙂

This could be used to bring back to life Commit Digest:

I really miss it!

hm, it’s a little confusing with using the plain KDE icon for so many different projects… Isn’t there some way to differentiate them better?

4. Sandro Andrade - November 24, 2009

Boudewijn, sure including KOffice and Krita now 🙂 But, how would you show -devel mailing information in such charts and bar drawings ? In the better way, just count how many message were sent by developer ?

Diego, KDE Observatory was somehow influenced by Commit Digest.

Anonymois, KDE icons are used for those KDE projects which doesn’t have its own icon. Tooltips show further information about the bars.

Talking about commit-digest: Would it be possible to pull commit messages from svn and put them in some kind of feed if people mark them with a tag? Right now there is e.g. a tag SVN_SILENT or so, so maybe developers could mark commits fixing important bugs or adding new features.

Then all that’s missing from the good old digest is the articles, which can be compensated by the dot and the planet.

Cantor (KDE Edu) is missing. 😉

[…] KDE Observatory: uma refatoração está sendo feita para melhorar o desempenho através de um novo banco de dados consolidado de commits ao invés de adquirir informações diretamente dos archives da lista kde-commits. Além disso, uma data engine está sendo criada para centralizar os dados para várias instâncias do KDE Observatory; […]
