Akademy: Let’s talk about music player and documentation
I’ll be at QtCon and Akademy in Berlin, mostly as observer, I guess 🙂
I’ll have also two workshops/discussions on Tuesday 6th (see ).
For some time now, there were threads  about designing a new music player. The VDG people came up with a vision and some first design ideas  and I built a first specification page on the community wiki .
I’ll do a workshop which will deal about:
- what will make this player not just another player
- feature discussion
- architecture design
- use of the public libraries of plasma-mediacenter
- …what you want to add…
The first 3 points will be mostly a presentation of what I want to do, with discussions about how it can be done better.
I already wrote some code, but it was mostly to make some experimentation, the project was put on hold until this Akademy session, in order to start on the right basis.
Documentation and KApiDox
I also reserved a slot for KApiDox, the program that generates the api.kde.org website. The codebase changed a lot lately, and more and more projects are being generated. However, it’s still not very robust to errors (the whole process would break instead of just ditching the error source) and it appeared not to respond to every usercases.
If you think our API documentation is important and can/should be enhanced, please join the discussion so that I can know your needs (as API user or API writer) and enhance the whole thing in the future.
