Adventures in Rocsland April 17, 2010

Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava, uncategorized.

So, Akademy – BR is over, and what this can bring up to Rocs on KDE 4.5?

1 – Fully temable svg – nodes. so now you can use rocs for something less abstract than a simple colored ball. The icon of the node can be changed via scripting or via UI, on the node properties dialog.

2 – Rework of the Graph, Node and Edge properties dialog, for something less ugly and more functional.

3 – Support for multi script files.

4 – Threads Support. now your long running script will not block the ui anymore. work with the documents is done in the thread.

5 – Plugin support in C++ and JavaScript forms, your algorithm can now be easily embbed into Rocs UI =)

6 – Dynamic Properties redone, and working correctly.

7 – Lots of optimizations and code cleanup.

I wanna also thank Wagner Reck for implementing the Plugin Support in Akademy while I was really busy teaching the newcommers. =) you rock man.

obligatory screenshoot

What is the state of Kross-support?

tumaix - April 18, 2010

No kross support whatsoever.
I should really start adding this.

Is it okay to commit algorithms in trunk?

tumaix - April 18, 2010

you mean javascript algorithms for testing the app, plugins or what?

3. The User - April 18, 2010

I mean standard-algorithms…

tumaix - April 18, 2010

using the reviewboard first, sure. reviewboard.kde.org

Rocs looks pretty good !
I read that it can be integrated in kdevelop (4) ?, how can I do this ? Is there any doc ? why is Rocs in kdeedu and has not part in kdevplatform ?


tumaix - April 19, 2010

no, you cant integrate it into kdevelop 4. it’s an application, not a plugin. =)
and kdevelop 4 doesn’t have support for javascript, so it won’t be much of a use.

5. The User - April 19, 2010

I think rocs is for demonstrating algorithms not for developing applications. I do not think that you want to use Javascript depending on rocs for the implementation of graph-algorithms in real applications. ­čśë
