Rendering UI files to SVG

In response to a question on IRC yesterday, here's a quick example for the New
Year - rendering designer's UI files to SVG using QSvgGenerator. As usual, the
code is simple since Qt gives us everything we need.


A Tale of Chile

I've been last week in Concépcion, south of Chile to attend another nice open source conference, been the second brazilian around ( Sulamita Garcia beat me first :-). But for me was special since last year we have finally some latin american KDE communities giving life signs, and i would expect that take more time to have they start to appear strongly, even more most of latin america been a strong Gnome supporter for years.

Well, here's Camilo Astete to prove me wrong:


Implementing a Reusable Custom QNetworkReply

In my last blog post, I showed how to use a proxy QNetworkAccessManager to restrict network accesses to sites included in a whitelist. One limitation the previous version had is that it stopped the disallowed requests by rewriting the request itself to be to an invalid url. This then caused the default implementation of QNetworkAccessManager to generate an error reply for us. This post will look at how to create a custom reply directly, to allow us to display messages to the user etc. or even provide 'virtual' content.


We're looking for passionate Qt and KDE developers !!

So, as looking that everyone is in the hiring mode...

Yes, Collabora is hiring. So if you are passionate for open source, want join a company that share the same passion as well, want to work from any place in the world and have at least some of these skills below, then we want to know you.


Looking for an exciting Qt-related job in HPC ?


I thought since others are announcing jobs here, so I can do that too :-)

So, here we go:
The Competence Center for High Performance Computing at the Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern has open positions:

We are working here on processing terrabytes of seismic data on Linux clusters. This is the big iron, high end stuff :-)


Qt on ARM

Qt on ARM is, literally, a sign of certification ;)                             

Thanks to Trolls for the opportunity of getting certified at Akademy!


ODF visualization using WebKit

Today is day 1 of of the OdfKit Hack Week. We wrote a list of things we want to achieve this week. In order to avoid embarrassment, we'll spare you the details and go straight through to an explanation of how you can use WebKit (or any modern browser) to visualize ODF documents. The general idea is to incorporate the ODF XML into a live HTML document.
Step 0: load content and styles into an HTML document


Qt on Rails v0.1 released. But is this Ruby-based Qt and KDE app framework doomed?

Can Ruby do for Qt and KDE application development what it did with Rails for web development? With the Qt on Rails project we're attempting to achieve this - using the clean domain logic and conventions of Rails combined with the brilliant application framework and widget set of Qt. An early 0.1 version has just been released; rough around the edges but enough to show the potential of the idea.


OdfKit Hack Week starts

OdfKit is a project that reuses WebKit technology in a toolkit for working with ODF office documents. KO GmbH is sponsored by NLnet to work on OdfKit for three months. This week, Chani, who is on her way to Akademy, is working with me on OdfKit and since she's here an entire week, we're calling it OdfKit Hack Week.


A White-listing QNetworkAccessManager

My last blog post showed how a proxy class can be used to monitor the requests being made by a QNetworkAccessManager, and illustrated it using an example that displayed those requests graphically. This post will cover another use of proxy QNetworkAccessManagers, specifically modifying requests and responses. The example we'll use is a very simple one, we'll look at a class that will restrict a QNetworkAccessManager so that it can only access domains listed in a white-list.
