First of all a happy and successful 2012 to everyone. Let’s work together to make this year a great success for KDE!
The API documentation of KWin scripting is now auto-generated through Doxygen and already imported to techbase together with detailed Update Notes on what changed. If you run master and use KWin scripting be aware that you have to adjust the script. Exactly the same API will be available in QML and also the Effects API is very close – given that the property names are inspired by the Effects API.
To open just use KRunner and type the new keyword “wm console” or start the desktop console and switch using the toolbar button.
This is a very important change for me during development as I can easily test whether my scripts are correct and most important my implementation. But also for users it means that scripts can be tried at runtime and don’t require a KWin restart any more. So adjusting the runtime behavior becomes possible.
So what’s next? I am currently with the progress quite satisfied with the work done so far on scripting and will now concentrate on two other areas first: getting my unmerged kickoff-qml and screenlocker branch into master. Both require still a little bit of work. After that scripting and QML get my number one priority again.
