Fun with WebKit

At my new workplace Collabora , I got the chance to play around with Webkit during the last few months. and one of the tasks we looked at was to improve and speedup webkit on QGraphicsView, And then produce useful ways to interact with Web contents, So yesterday, I was checking how responsive it would be to add live reflections of a webpage.

QtWidgets as OpenGL Texture

Qt is getting better by the second. The new QWidget::render API call is so cool that u can do so many thing you like with it, I just changed few lines of the Video demo to render a QCalendarWidget as a Texture on a cube. Can't explain the coolness of the new API in words, simply impressive. (Video Link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6731089908367617401);

Raptor Menu flip Effect

Finally it was the day for playing with the QTransformations and QGV. and the result is kinda nice, but not perfect still . in the coming day's i'll probably make it more functional and put the 3D flipping effect in to more practical use. so basically what I have done is add some basic icons zooming and rotate the QGV around Y axis which make the view flip like magic.

Finally after few hours of work. got grid view working, sad thing is i'm not using Plasma gridlayout but when it's ready I'll switch back. but it works and dose the trick for now.
I'll be improving the view and the restof the svn components in the coming days. and also start working on the AI engine , maybe the Fuzzy logic plug in can be finessed first,

Simpicity of KBFX

two days after the release of kbfx silk in which we try to simplify the backends and front ends, we got a nice comment on kde-look. actually this was really unexpected.

"I really dislike the latest kbfx, I wanted simplicity, that is why I switched to kbfx "
