PostPosted: Mon 10 Sep 2012, 00:47    Post subject:  qtpuppy 2 - programmers, what do you use?  

PREAMBLE:

OK, I'm finally about to start back to building qtpuppy Version 2 (pronounced as cutepuppy). Version 2 is based on Mageia, and with my Mage2 about to 'finally' be released, (it is currently in the last beta test stage,) then it's off my hands for a while.

qtpuppy is Idealized to be a Designer, Programmer and Builders Puppy, it is not a general users puppy. It will not contain many of the applications you are use to seeing in the standard set, although there should be no reason why they could not be added into your savefile or an 'home-built' sfs. Although qtpuppy will have qt4, that is not the only base it will have available that you will be able to design and build with.

Also, the overall size is not planned to be a major consideration with qtpuppy, since it is designed to be a multiple sfs system. The only limits I am putting on it are that a final iso should be no more than a dvd in size and no individual sfs, including the core is to be more than 128meg in size. This means, if I understand the system correctly, that with the core and savefile loaded in the ram workspace, the other sfs's can be loaded but actually reside in a rom mode and therefore will not be fully loaded into your ram and fill it up. I'd also intend to 'offload' most of the doc's into their own sfs's.

The core package will be independant of applications where possible, although some configuration and the system utilities will remain. Once stable, there is no intent to add others, just upgrade when necessary, and even then only as long as it doesn't 'kill' what is already there.

First alpha version of qtpuppy (qtpy2-0.0.00) will just be the mage2-2.0.0 release cutdown, so it is without any user applications. This is a core test alpha to sort out any remaining core bugs found. If mage2 has been completed, as planned at the end of September, it should be out two weeks later.

Second alpha (qtpy2-0.0.20) will have parts of qt4.8.x (latest 4.8 'backends' without the designer and developer parts), and gstreamer (mageia compatability requirement) added into the core sfs, and a separate sfs containing some qt4 and other Builder Applications from those already sugested or considered as the basic's, as the origonal warz qtpuppy had, and saluki has. It should be the point that the two new desktops should appear. The program is currently for a December 1 testers release.

OK, NOW THE REASON FOR THE THREAD:

I am not a serious programmer, I can (usually) re-package someone's else's package to run, and work my way through (some) simple scripts and sources to build a working apllication!

I do have some favorite applications, such as geany, qt4's Designer and QT Quick2, galculator, the mozilla 'set' of applications and the like, which I will include.

However I'm looking for others IDE's and the like to add to the mix.

That is where you come in, what do you use?

Sugestions and requests anyone?

I am mainly interested in the audio side and getting qtractor to work. The alsawizard is no longer working in slacko535, so I don't know how this will impact.

Are you planning on still having a separate devx sfs? This usually includes most stuff required - though its contents varies from Puppy to Puppy. Are you in Python libraries?

Hi Darkcity,
Yes to a separate devx, that will always happen, there is a 'lot' of Python both builtin and available, however I shall be using gstreamer as a/v feed as it's mageia's standard. Alsa is at alsaplayer-0.99.81-2, alsaconf at alsaconf-1.0.25-4, and qtractor is currently listed as qtractor-0.5.4-1 on Mageia 2.

I take it you've contacted mick about slacko?

regards
scsijon

hi scsijon, this is a little off topic, but you may find it interesting. I've starting listing which software uses which frameworks and languages
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SoftwareDetails

If you know any others I can add to list Cool
