To build, or not to build, that's a kdepim question

I thought this would be a good moment to blog. So you ask .. why? Well, I began rebuilding kde from scratch, and I reached to kdepim. Yes, you guessed. I spent the last 2 hours fixing the build, and still haven't fixed it :) First it was unsermake problem, now kconfigs don't build, dirs don't get build in the right order... So I got no e-mail, no konvi, addressbooks ... to sum it up, I'm un-PIMized, disconnected from the rest of the world

Can't do that

Heh, 3 hours ago I was about to drop this little project. 3 hours later, I'm back thinking I can't do that. I can't just drop it and go away. I'm not that kind of person. I think blogging about one's complaints and stopping coding for 3 hours helps thinking better. Really, try it. I guess I didn't sleep enough, was stuck with the project and as a result I got a hit by the frustration. I was even thinking of joining the Gnom... nah! that's just not possible ;)

Project almost finished, About to drop it

It's not easy to explain why one begins doing opensource code. For once, you find some good software, and can't resist the temptation to look at its code and improve it. On the other hand, it's a good means to learn coding, specially working on team projects. But one of the most important factors is probably that someone is using your code, and thinks its useful.

Here we go, 0.4!

It seems we're coming close to a new release. When? Dunno, just give time to time for bugfixing. Krecipes 0.4 has quite a few additional features, so we cannot hold the beast anymore on the servers. Someone will have to download it soon before it explodes!

Disappointed

So yes, another step back in the Krecipes usability. SQLite is nice, easy to install, easy to code... but in two (or 3) words: "it's crap". Slower than a cow trying to climb up a ladder.

It's convenient when the lists are small and no strange queries are done, but give it a bit of search work, and it's useless. MySQL could do a query over 3000 recipes in 0.12s and took SQLite 1 minute to complete the same thing.... I can't say that's useful.

Moved! Bye sf.net. Hi kde.org

At last. Krecipes is in kdenonbeta now. No more complaints about delayed anoncvs servers :-)

Oh, and we're heading for a 0.3 release very soon. With some very nice new features:

In bad mood and annoying people

Yeap, I was in really bad mood today, and I think I even managed to annoy some koffice developers today :-( Sorry Beineri! I hope the comments I added in the lists will help fixing the issues in KPresenter.

Busy, but still thinking of releases

So yes, I'm busy, but still I managed to get some time for the Krecipes development. Things seem to go fine, and I expect a release in 2 weeks may be (cross fingers).

I'm now addressing the biggest issue: MySQL. Krecipes users don't know how to set it up, and things seem to vary between distros and obviously there are also source installations. So this thing may bring me more problems than solutions, but I'll be adding another part to the wizard to set up MySQL automagically.

Krecipes 0.2: Recipes for geeks

I need more testers for this little beast, guys. Or is it that there're no bugs left? :-) Just to let you know, this version includes two delicious recipes from and for geeks. One by Adriaan de Groot, and another one by me. Even developers cook sometimes...
