subtle: Updates and bugfixes

Added by Christoph Kappel almost 7 years ago

The current revision (1465) contains many fixes for placement in xinerama, as well as an updated tag properties which will be soon explained in the wiki. To make long short: Tags can match title, name and/or class of a window now!

Also the config changed slightly, :caption has been renamed to :title in the panel config. subtle with an older config will just not show the title of the focus window.

subtle: Redmine update and plugins

Added by Christoph Kappel almost 7 years ago

Today I finally managed to have time updating redmine and playing with some of the really nice plugins. I chose three and ended up with two bugreports and two feature requests.

This redmine has now a codebook which allows to share code, a system to vote for specific issues and a FAQ section.

Plugins: Codebook, Vote, FAQ

subtle: Updates

Added by Christoph Kappel about 7 years ago

Today is update time: I updated this Redmine to the latest trunk and also added a new subtle snapshot of 0.8.1191 which I am running for a while now without any problems.

subtle: Hooks

Added by Christoph Kappel about 7 years ago

Currently there exist only three type of hooks, more are planned. Inside of this hooks can every feature of subtlext be used.

The following hooks exist so far:

Triggers on new clients and has the new client as parameter:
"HookCreate" => { |c| puts }

Triggers on view jumps and has the active view as parameter:
"HookJump" => { |v| puts }

Triggers when a client gets focus and has the focussed client as parameter:
"HookFocus" => { |c| puts }

subtle: subtle on 64bit

Added by Christoph Kappel about 7 years ago

Currently subtle will not work well on 64bit, actually I don't have the hardware to check the errors there and therefore this will untested until I get new hardware (which will hopefully be soon) or someone volunteers.

subtle: Lots of changes lately

Added by Christoph Kappel about 7 years ago

The current snapshot of the repo contains lots of fixtures and changes that also include the format of the config file. Please check your current config and have a look at the shipped config.

subtle: Unit tests for subtlext

Added by Christoph Kappel about 7 years ago

I finally added unit tests for subtlext - it's easier now to check if the extension is broken due API changes etc.
For convenience the test suite is included in the buildtree and easily be run with rake test.

subtle: Happy New Year

Added by Christoph Kappel over 7 years ago

Quite lot happened this year and subtle changed a lot - but made also good progresses. In the next year we are going to celebrate the first stable release of subtle!

If anybody reads this: I wish you all a happy new year and all the best!

subtle: Ruby - what next?

Added by Christoph Kappel over 7 years ago

After replacing Lua with Ruby what next? I am currently working on a Ruby extension that brings the features of [[subtler]] to Ruby. This will possible make [[subtler]] pointless - but this is it worth for me. (See #4)

Any suggestions?

subtle: Lua vs Ruby

Added by Christoph Kappel almost 8 years ago

During the development I feel more and more disappointed with the limited base functions that ship with Lua. And it's complex to force users to stay in an own namespace and I would also like a more OOPish-way in a scripting language.

I am using Ruby for a long time now and I always liked the power that it has. I finally made the decision to replace Lua with Ruby.

To keep the requirements low I will also replace the SCons build system with Rake - a Makefile replacement written entirely in Ruby. SCons is a really nice system, but using Python to check the environment for Ruby is a bit awkward.
