Synchronize everything!

I think today is the first time I’ve felt that I’m halfway done with my application. It’s a very intoxicating feeling and at the same time there’s a lot to be done in the user interface area, like really a lot to be done. I spent most of the day fixing a few icky issues… Continue reading Synchronize everything!

Paths

You know, never in my life I considered myself a classical music (using the term as macro) guy in the term that I never spared a thought about it. These days I would take my time going through the various artists Spotify lines up in their “Related artists” section. Amusingly all began in a “silly… Continue reading Paths

Translator available

I had to remove Bing translator… not because it’s bad but because the widget sucks so much. If a user uses the widget Bing provided on the following visit he/she will get a floating box and that box would hinder the experience of the user, the box pretty much follows you anywhere. I prefer Google’s… Continue reading Translator available

The progress so far in 2015…

It’s been undoubtedly a hell of a year, where hell isn’t a synonym to “awesome”, “terrific” etc as some would expect. This year acted as a pandora box back in January and February dealing with a lot of issues.

Update: I was able to fix YCM. Pretty happy about that 🙂 What a day it has been for me. I’m totally wasted after pretty much driving all day, I had no real plans for today either way but I wanted to get a bit of a head start with GTK3. I’m a vim user,… Continue reading A tiny bite of GTK3

Lesson learned: Always use layouts, _always use layouts_

Ever since I got myself started using QML I have run into some funny business dealing with certain margin sizes. One of my oh so bad ideas was to recalculate the margin of an Item that’s already in a layout totally disregarding the Layout.margins property that’s available in every Layout container. This sounds all simple,… Continue reading Lesson learned: Always use layouts, _always use layouts_

Well, let’s keep it minty?

I’ve been dual booting to Linux Mint in my laptop for a few days. As to why Linux Mint… I’m interested in elementaryOS in general, but as I see it right now eOS isn’t ready and Linux Mint provides a full fledged desktop and a solid experience.

Implementing TreeView expandAll/collapseAll starting on top-levels

I should start by a disclaimer that I’m neither a C++ or Qt expert, there may be better or elegant ways to do it and I have found this implementation is more straightforward than digging in TreeView’s QML source code. So we have a small problem, the TreeView in QML doesn’t provide any way to… Continue reading Implementing TreeView expandAll/collapseAll starting on top-levels
