sonoi would like to go "bleeding edge", i do professional work on the AM335x, so yea..08:04
sonowould you say that nemo on the n900 is ready for daily use, if i do it right?08:05

Sfiet_Konstantinyou are free to test and contribute by talking to us and get more interested in nemo project tohugh08:13

Sfiet_Konstantinfor an exam ?08:18
Sfiet_Konstantinfaenil: I have exam next week :(08:18
*** giucam has joined #nemomobile08:18
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, yeah, the huge exam I've been postponing this month :(08:21
faenilgood luck with yours08:21
faenil!08:21
Sfiet_Konstantinoh08:21
Sfiet_Konstantin:(08:21
Sfiet_Konstantinmine might be rather easy08:21
Sfiet_Konstantinrather08:21
Sfiet_Konstantinnot easy08:21
zbenjaminfaenil: patches are merged btw08:21
Sfiet_Konstantin:(08:21
faenilzbenjamin, yeah, awesome :)08:23
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, eh :(08:24
Sfiet_Konstantinfaenil: good lock with yours too08:24
Sfiet_Konstantinespecially since it is huge08:24
Sfiet_Konstantinbetter graduate and then no exams !08:24
zbenjaminfaenil: next steps will be: make desktop and apps rotate08:24
faenilzbenjamin, yeah08:25
zbenjaminfaenil: is the desktop using components too? or a homegrown rotation handing?08:25
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, yeah :( if I manage to pass this exam on Nov14th, I'll finish exams in Jan! \o/08:25
Sfiet_Konstantincooool08:25
*** alien_ has joined #nemomobile08:26
faenilzbenjamin, it's using qtcomponents, but I don't know if the orientation is handled by components as well, as it is a special window in compositor iirc, where they do direct rendering, so it might be treated differently. w00t or special may say something more about this08:26
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, yeah, cool indeed, I just have to start studying :( and study all days from morning to evening for more than 1 month..08:27
Sfiet_Konstantin:(08:27
Sfiet_Konstantinno boss in nemo :(08:27
faenilwhich is something I have never done :P (except projects of course, but that's much more fun)08:27
Sfiet_Konstantinany compilers exams ?08:27
faenilpassed that :)08:27
faenilbut it's all theory, don't ask anything about gcc or anything ( unfortunately :( )08:28
*** Pat_o_ has quit IRC08:29
zbenjaminsounds like "fun" ;)08:30
Sfiet_Konstantin:D08:30
Sfiet_Konstantinindeed08:30
*** Pat_o_ has joined #nemomobile08:30
Sfiet_KonstantinI just remember that compilers was faenil's nemesis08:30
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, yeah, I love theory about that stuff, it's just we had the wrong professor...08:31
Sfiet_Konstantin...08:31
Sfiet_Konstantin:(08:31
Sfiet_Konstantinthe professor is indeed the most important component of a course08:31
faenilanyway, I've been very lucky in that exam, the prof has been extremely kind to me, so, it's all history :)08:32
Sfiet_Konstantin:)08:32
faenilnow, if only TextArea offered the line of the cursor position...I'd be happier :P08:33
zbenjamini thought you have to study all day long ;)08:33
Sfiet_Konstantinfaenil: compute it08:34
Sfiet_KonstantinQFontMetrics ?08:34
Sfiet_Konstantinand +1 zbenjamin08:34
faenilzbenjamin, I thought as well :D08:34
faenilSfiet_Konstantin, not that important to go down to c++08:34
Sfiet_Konstantinsomeone please /kick faenil08:34
faenilit's for the livecoding page I'm pushing to qqc Nemo :)08:34
Sfiet_Konstantinfaenil: it is the worst case scenario08:34

Sfiet_KonstantinI won't risk myself for QFontMetrics08:35

faenilalterego, ping15:12
alteregoYessir?15:12
sledgesfast15:12
faenilalterego, what are the cons of having a toolbar in each page15:13
faenilinstead of having it in appwindow and animating its content15:13
faenilbecause having one for each page suits QQC best15:13
alteregoWell, it's really just page loading time.15:13
alteregoAnd even that is probably not noticeable.15:14
faenilbut, you're loading the content in any case15:14
faenilso what's the perf increase, not loading the container? :/15:14
faenilsledges, good boy :D15:15
sledgesay?15:15
alteregoWell, I suppose there are three ways, 1) Do like Qt Components did, and use one toolbar and read pages. 2) Have a toolbar per page instantiated by the page when it's loaded. 3) Have a global toolbar that is assigned to the page when it's selected.15:15
alteregoFrom my perspective, it's more about how you plan on doing transitions between pages and potentially applications.15:15
faenilyeah...15:15
alteregoPerformance isn't going to be a massive concern.15:15
locusfMorpog_PC: qwazix: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/286182/slider-hug.png15:15
faenilalterego, I was thinking about letting user modify transitions15:16
locusfMorpog_PC: qwazix: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/286182/slider-stretch-hug.png15:16
zbenjaminfaenil: in ubuntu touch the toolbar slides out of the window, but its a own toolbar in every window15:16
faenilthis is already possible in QQC for what concerns page transition15:16
zbenjaminyou can slide it in with a swipe up15:16
sonoweek.end();15:16
sono\o/15:16
faenilsono, ahaha15:16
alteregofaenil: I quite like how Windows Phone does it, they provide a set of tincan transitions and the developer can choose whatever one, or have them executed randomlu.15:16
sonofaenil: butt.push()!15:16
alterego~randomly.15:16
faenilzbenjamin, yes of course each page has its own toolbar...what about the component itself though15:17
faenilsono, o/15:17
sono\o/15:17
alteregoMight be a good idea to add transition theming support, at least that's what I was thinking of doing with something I'm working on anyway :)15:17
zbenjaminfaenil: what do you mean?15:17
faenilalterego, yep15:17
sonoeven thought one might wonder how i managed to push with both arms up.15:17
sonoafk, laters =)15:17
faenilalterego, QQC already provide page transitioning feature15:17
faenilalterego, code from silica I'm using for Page provides orientation transitioning handling15:17
faeniltoolbar is the only missing :)15:18
faenilthough it's automatic if there's one toolbar each page15:18
alteregoJust do it per page for now.15:18
alteregoWe can always review the pros & cons.15:18
zbenjaminfaenil: http://developer.ubuntu.com/api/ubuntu-13.04/qml/ui-toolkit/qml-ubuntu-components0-page.html15:18
alteregoI'm sure there are more important things to do that worry about that for now ;)15:18
alterego~than ..15:18
faenilyeah, can't see real reason why we would not want that, except if we want a bar which stays still, like bb10 in some apps15:19
faeniland page transitions15:19
alteregoThat can be replicated with transitions.15:19
alteregoKeep toolbar anchored to window, and fade out then fade in new toolbar. Or whatever.15:19
alteregoIt's pretty arbitrary when you think about it :)15:19
faenilalterego, have to check if that's the case for qqc transitions in stackview15:19
Morpog_PClocusf, looking good so far15:20
Morpog_PCfont is wrong or?15:20
Morpog_PCand not really centered?15:20
locusfMorpog_PC: yup, known issue15:20
faenilzbenjamin, ToolBarActions could just be the content of the toolbar, not the toolbar itself15:21
Morpog_PCwhere is the finger on 2nd pic?15:21
locusfI don't remember :D15:21
Morpog_PCon the end of blue rectangle, or?15:21
zbenjaminfaenil: as you can see the toolbar is part of the page, there is no Toolbar component imho15:21

zbenjamingrmbl ok15:23
faenilzbenjamin, :) so ubuntu touch has only one toolbar as well, and pages just replace its content15:23
zbenjaminlooks like it15:24

sandy_lockeyeah it's far from production quality18:17
qwazixThe switch is not bad, it looks a bit like the one I had drafted at first, but I'm not sure it is a substantial improvement over what we already specced, so let's not do duplicate work.18:18
sandy_lockeok, it was just a thought mocked up quickly18:19

qwazixoops http://play.qwazix.com/shared/IMG_00000011.png18:20
sandy_lockeqwazix, yeah, like those kind of magnifier, but be careful to put it above the text to be selected if implemented18:20
qwazixwhen you tap the circle, it works like arrows if you tap the right half it moves one letter to the right18:21
sandy_lockeI'm angry agains apple and nokia to have put the magnifier just on top of the text18:21
qwazixvery nice feature18:21
sandy_lockemmh, clever, so the magnifier stays even if you release the touch ?18:21
qwazixyep, and you can see it's not really a magnifier18:22
qwazixit's just a handle to move the cursor18:22
qwazixI find it much easier to use than nokia/apple solution18:22
sandy_lockeyeah seems like it18:23
sandy_lockeyou own a bb ?18:23
sandy_lockeyou tried ?18:23
qwazixbut the nudging feature is killer, all those times you are just off by a letter...18:23
qwazixyeah, using a Z10 as daily phone18:23
sandy_lockemmh, would have tried it if it weren't from bb (the one who spied on their bbm in london few years ago)18:24
sandy_lockebut now bb is dead, though the Z10 seem like a nice little device ;)18:24
sandy_lockelike their UI, but never experienced it18:25
sandy_lockeanyway, you plan on adding this kind of "magnifier" into nemo ?18:25
qwazixI don't like their UI much, it's a bit confusing and it looks last-gen design.18:25
sandy_lockeseriously ?18:25
sandy_lockeseemed to me that they had quite advanced swipe interface and nice presentation18:26
qwazixyeah, too many menus all over the place, and their notifications system is too complicated18:26
qwazixhttp://play.qwazix.com/grog/?p=29618:26

sandy_lockeqwazix, Morpog_Mobile, no way to find it. I could launch my touchpad if it still had batteries ^^ I'll make a sshot someday18:48
sandy_lockebut essentially it's a round stick that stands on the top right corner of the vkb18:49
sandy_lockeand it behaves like a physical stick18:49
qwazixsandy_locke, sounds nice18:50
sandy_lockejust put your finger on it, then move slightly to the right and the cursor moves to the right, and the farther you go with your finger, the fastest the cursor moves18:51
sandy_lockethe guys who did that made an excellent job, and this stick is flawless, and extremely accurate18:51
sandy_lockeI miss it !18:51
qwazixsandy_locke, Morpog_Mobile, idk if it is feasible but we could implement swipe on spacebar to nudge cursor left - right18:52
sandy_lockealthough I'm sure there's a way to make it less "monolithic" (because it takes from what really exists physically, the stick, so it's just an adaptation for screens)18:52
sandy_lockeqwazix, but you lose up down then18:53
sandy_lockeand left right w/o up down is damn frustrating !18:53
sandy_lockeit feels hal baked18:53
sandy_locke*half18:53
qwazixmaybe up/down too, if the swipe starts on space bar and ends anywhere18:54
sandy_lockeqwazix, yes I can see that: to make it feel right we must also find a way to have visual&haptic feedbacks18:55
qwazix:nod:18:55
sandy_lockevisual means that we see the space bar "roll" slightly in the way of the swipe18:55
sandy_lockebut yes, it's the best way to have cursor control without requiring more space18:57
qwazixor design a small compass-like icon on the space bar18:58
sandy_lockemeans a spacebar designed in two parts? or is it just for the visual feedback ?18:59
sandy_lockeicon seems good for visual feedback, although it adds clutter19:00
qwazixjust for the visual feedback, and with an opacity of say .2 just to give a hint19:05
qwazix(or we could use the accelerometer and tap on the sides like flipper :P)19:06

faenilqwazix, https://github.com/nemomobile/qtquickcontrols-nemo/commit/8a8af5da25acecc617bcfbb149dc84270015c0bf19:12
faenilalso, how do you move down if you have to start swiping from the space bar?19:12
qwazixfaenil, there is a bit of space, I don't know if it's enough, we're just brainstorming19:13
faenilqwazix, also, that would conflict with swipe to exit from app19:14
qwazixbtw butt.behavior is a new upstream property?19:14
faenilqwazix, it's always been there, it's an internal property, __behavior19:14
faeniland I didn't notice it before19:14
qwazixcool19:14
faenilit's not in API19:14
qwazixon harmattan you can't swipe from bottom while vkb is popped up19:15
faenilyeah, I put the Button in a SplitView and it stopped working xD so I had to find a solution :P19:15
faenilqwazix, ok19:15
qwazixanyway it's not the best of ideas, if you have something cooler I'm all ears19:15

qwazixfaenil, I was fixing the ButtonRow spec with what we discussed and saw this "and...I did not understand the "adventorous hacker" part of button row" which I had missed.19:27
qwazixThe easiest way to implement a ButtonRow is with buttons that have equal width19:27
faenilyes19:28
qwazixThe "adventurous hacker edition" of the buttonRow has unequal widths19:28
faenilyes but you say that will let you fit more buttons19:28
qwazixand arranges the contents by having equal distances between labels19:28
faenilwhich is not true if buttons have long texts19:29
*** Vlad_on_the_road has joined #nemomobile19:29
qwazixIf all buttons have long texts it will be the same19:29
faenilit will not19:29
qwazixwhy?19:29
faenillook at your picture19:31
faenilif all were "bristlemouth"19:31
faenilit would fit only 2 of them19:31
qwazixif all were bristlemouth it would fit only 2 either way19:31
qwazix(left is equal width buttons, right is equal spacing)19:31
faenilthen I didn't get your standard way of doing it19:32
qwazixsorry, top vs bottom19:32
faenilyes but if you set width = totalWidth / buttCount19:32
faenilmore of them fit19:32
qwazixYou just calculate the available space (buttonrow.width - text1.width - text2.width ...) and then divide it by the count of the buttons19:32
qwazixand you get the space between texts19:32
faenilyou can fit 5 bristlemouth if you cut the text19:33
qwazixyeah, ok19:33
qwazixI wasn't talking about cutting text19:34
qwazixYou can cut the text anyway19:34
qwazixI feel that even when all items are short the bottom arrangement feels more natural19:34
faenilok, I got what you meant now19:35
qwazixbut it makes it more difficult to do the sliding effect of the rectangle, because you have to dynamically change the width based on position19:35
qwazixit's not a huge usability gain, so I left it there as an option if you want to play with it19:35
*** ari has quit IRC19:36
faenilso basically you split width, then get the buttons which still have empty space left19:37
faeniland split that space between all buttons19:37
qwazixyep, that's the long way around but yeah19:39
faenilwell, that's the algo I see19:40
qwazixI would just describe it as "take all the empty space and split it to equal parts" but yeah, we are saying the same thing.19:44
sandy_lockeqwazix, just a quick look at the idea from before : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53739998/vkb-with-cursor-control.gif19:45
sandy_lockereally quick look ^^:P19:46
qwazixsandy_locke, I like!19:46
qwazixsandy_locke, maybe put it between T, Y and G like thinkpad trackpoints?19:47
sandy_lockethe swipe up could be managed, but what about swipe down, if you're stuck by the edge of the screen ?19:47
qwazixthat would solve the swipe down19:48
sandy_lockeyes, nice idea, and would make ibm users comfortable ;)19:48
qwazixspace is small yeah, but we just need an indicator, real touch area can be quite big19:48
qwazixit will only trigger on swipe19:48
qwazix(and we can do it red just as a wink)19:49

qwazixsandy_locke, we'll find out soon19:53
sandy_lockeI mean what will Maliit say ? ;)19:53
qwazixthat's why I asked locusf. Maliit definitely has support for gestures and cursor control (even on N9) so it must be possible19:54
sandy_lockeyes but has it ways of floating components in between rows and above other keys ?19:56

qwazixjoking apart, studies are just a facilitator. Most freshmen know much less than somebody who hacked a bit on his own.20:11
sandy_lockercg, ah the semantic's ;)20:11
qwazixIf you have studied, and hack a bit on your own though, you learn faster20:11
rcghehe, yeah, there are many ways to get a degree and now nothing20:12
*** meak has joined #nemomobile20:12
rcgwas kinda surprised on the last interviews we had for a job, none of the applicants hacked at home, which was pretty frustrating20:12
rcgwhy would i want to give someone a job who doesn't show any passion and love for what he is doing20:13
qwazixexactly20:13
sandy_lockeyeah hopefully (for me) in our line of work degrees are only a small part of the required stuffs ;)20:14
qwazixrecent interview, guy showed up for UI Developer, I asked what comes through your mind when I say UI Framework? He responds "Nothing"20:14
sandy_lockeThe guy has nothing to give, then20:14
qwazixobviously20:14
rcgqwazix, hehe, there was that guy: q: "do you know test driven development", a: "yeah, i learned about it when i prepared for the interview", q: "great, so what can you tell me about tdd?", a: "oh, well, apparently, i didn't learn that much."20:15
qwazixlol, sounds like a dilbert strip20:16
sandy_locketdd is interesting, although I really don't like getting errors when I code !20:18
sandy_lockebut you can never do without them...20:18
rcgsandy_locke, i love tdd20:19
rcgat least in all my java and clojure projects i try to strictly follow tdd20:19
sandy_lockercg, I can see why, it's a good way to debug inline20:19
*** martyone has quit IRC20:21
sandy_lockeand it's a pleasure to know that your errors wil go away with just "this line!"20:22
rcgsandy_locke, imho there are many benefits, it changes the way you think about problems, fosters modular design, you get your regression tests for "free", refactoring is so much easier when you have a test suite you can use to verify the results, you can reproduce things automatically etc.20:22
rcg:)20:23
sandy_lockewill try that in my next app20:24
*** DrCode has quit IRC20:24
sandy_lockesee how I like it in situation20:24
rcgalso in debugging, first get a test case that fails the way the bug is described. then fixing the bug is just another test made succeed20:24
*** nsuffys has quit IRC20:24
rcgthere are also unit tests for qt and qml but for some reason i never started an qt/qml project the tdd way20:25
sandy_lockeit's true that it must make you see bugs as just normal proceedure, lessening the anger from further not wanted errors20:25
rcgdunno why actually20:25
rcgsandy_locke, and with each test case you get more confidence in your product20:26
rcgof course just the number of tests doesn't tell anything about coverage etc. but i don't wanna go into the very details :)20:27
sandy_lockeyes true, because you can then list the bugs that could happen, but were taken care of eventually during the coding20:27
rcgsandy_locke, nah, it's not about the bugs that can happen20:27
*** DrCode has joined #nemomobile20:28
rcgin the first place it's about the functionality you want20:28
sandy_lockeyes, I'm listening, find it interesting20:28
rcgin the second step it's a nice way that you can model bug reports as tests first and then fix them in a controlled an reproducible manner20:28
qwazixI always wondered what if you have a bug in your test? Doesn't that fuck you up for good?20:28
rcgqwazix, hehe, yeah, i see you spotted the hen and egg problem there20:29
rcgbut usually you start with very simple tests and then increase complexity20:29
qwazixI mean if you need to code f(x)=y don't you need to erm, implement g(x)=y to test your f(x)?20:30
rcgfurthermore, you can add tests to check that your pre-conditions for a test are fulfilled and the test runs the way it should20:30
rcgqwazix, kinda, but usually g(x) is rather simple20:30
sandy_lockeit's a good way to have a beautiful code, no ? I mean, where you can clearly see the blocks, if you handle it well20:31
qwazixbecause you choose an arbitrary case rather than a general one?20:31
rcgsay i want an add function f(x)=a+b), then i could construct test cases a=1,b=2,f(x)should be 3 etc.20:31
qwazix:nod:20:31
rcgand maybe i also want a test case for negative numbers as well20:32
rcgof course you don't do all test cases for N20:32
qwazixyeah but you can do at each part of f where it is monotonous, and you really have tested everything20:33
rcgusually, it's a bit like the peano axioms, you test the basics and critical cases that matter20:33
rcgqwazix, yeah like test for i and i+1 and then you can be pretty sure that it holds for all values.. more or less20:33
rcgthat's of course very simplified20:34
qwazix:nod:20:34
rcge.g. if you want to test a division function one test for sure should be divide by zero20:34
rcgon the other hand, in case you deal with really complicated functions there are even way to automatically generate your test data20:35
rcg*ways20:35
sandy_lockebut what does it give to make the test fail instead of making it work with known results ?20:36
rcgsandy_locke, it's also not really about the beauty of the code. it changes the way you think, and (i'm talking about bottom up here), you learn how to split your big problems into smaller ones and make more modular designs20:36
rcgsandy_locke, ?20:36
rcgusually you write the test first, making sure everything compiles by implementing stubs, the logic doesn't matter at first. at that point your test fails20:37
rcgthen you implement the logic making your test succeed20:37
rcgor mocks20:37
rcgi.e., stubs or mocks20:38
*** piee has quit IRC20:38
sandy_lockedo you have an example , rcg ? like a link where I can see the first steps ?20:39
rcge.g., in case of an addition function, i'd write a test for f(a,b) that says f(1,2)=3. in order to compile it i need at least some f(x). as i don't care about the logic i would chose f(a,b)=020:39
qwazixvery interesting... I always thought it more like of a way to keep your developers on a leash, if you've got hordes of them.20:39
qwazixI hadn't heard anybody really like the approach in the actual coding part20:40
qwazixI'll certainly look more into it20:40
sandy_lockeyeah me too20:40
*** Martix has joined #nemomobile20:41
rcgqwazix, actually, the coders are the ones who benefit most, i think :)20:41
sandy_lockercg, and what would you get with f(a,b)=0 in the debugger for instance ? what would be the output ?20:42
rcgmy test is f(1,2)=3, f(a,b)=0, so the test fails20:43
rcgit's not about the debugger btw.20:43
rcgthe debugger is something different again20:43
*** Martix has quit IRC20:44
rcgimagine you want to test f(a,b) the "normal" way as console application, you would code the application, compile it and then manually invoke f(a,b) with a=1 and b=2 just to see it fail20:44
rcgone point of testing is to automate things such that you don't need to do all the cumbersome stuff yourself20:45
sandy_lockeand when the test fails in this instance, how does it give you a clue that the test went "well" ?20:45
*** Martix has joined #nemomobile20:45
rcgwell, 1. the code compiled, 2. the test didn't give an error which means that code-wise everythings ok so far, just the logic is not working20:45
*** piee has joined #nemomobile20:46
rcgso from there you would start to implement f(a,b), e.g., as f(a,b) = a+b20:46
rcgimplement the logic, that is20:46
rcgand when you run the test again after you implemented the logic f(a,b)=a+b, your test f(1,2)=3 should succeed20:46
rcgbtw. tests giving and error and tests failing are two different things ;)20:47
rcgif a test fails it means that everything compiles and runs, whereas an error means that something broke even in the testing part itself20:48
*** Martix has quit IRC20:50
sandy_lockeso if I set up a function and omit a variable on purpose, is it a fail or an error ?20:50
sandy_locke*variable declaration20:51
sandy_lockebecause the code compile, although the function give no result since the variable is not set20:51
*** Martix has joined #nemomobile20:51
sandy_lockercg ^20:52
*** meak has quit IRC20:54
sandy_lockewell, I'll be afk but still waiting for the answer ;)20:55
rcgin the addition example i would first write a test, define a=1 and b=2 then call c=add(a,b) and finally compare c=3, add is the function i want to implement20:55
rcgthen, apparently, to make the test compile i have to add a function "add" that takes exactly two arguments20:55
rcgat first, i just want the thing to compile so i'd do something like "int add(int a, int b) { return 0; }"20:56
rcgso, automatically, i have to implement that function with the right number of arguments because else my compiler would throw errors20:57
*** lizardo has quit IRC20:57
rcgonce that works and the test runs then i can go into the details of implementing the logic inside the "add" procedure20:57
sandy_lockercg, so basically you first implement dummy functions with dummy variable to see if it compiles, and then put the real variable while enhancing the code ?21:03
rcgbtw. in more complex setups where you need to have certain pre-conditions, like assuring that a database is initialized and contains certain values you use so called "setup" and "tear down" methods to prepare your test environment and to clean it afterwards21:03
rcgyep21:03
rcgthat's what stubbing and mocking does21:03
rcgin the example the dummy "add" function would be the stubb21:04
rcg*stub21:04
sandy_lockeok21:04
faenilqwazix, sorry I'm afk guys, can you please elaborate more on landscape header21:04
faenillevels etc21:04
faenilbbl21:04
sandy_lockercg, yeah, I asked myself about cleaning the code, do you have ways to automate the process, w/o cleaning by hand ?21:05
rcg*set up*21:05
rcgsandy_locke, cleaning the code?21:05
rcgtdd doesn't prevent you from writing ugly code. if it's that what you mean21:06
rcgyou can make all your tests pass even with stupid code21:06
sandy_lockeI mean, when you put stuffs just for testing purpose, but don't need it afterward, and taken that the testing code is redundant too, so a lot of it21:06
sandy_lockeok21:06
rcgbut if you find ugly code and refactor it, you can run the same tests and check easily that your refactoring didn't break anything21:07
sono^  this21:07
sononow give this man a pint21:07
alteregoUnit tests are extremely important21:07
alteregoFor any medium to large project.21:07
rcgsandy_locke, well, the tests are somewhat code that never goes into production, in fact, you usually design your tests explicitly this way such that the end-user never sees them. e.g., in an java eclipse project you would put all your tests into a different source folder21:09
sandy_lockercg, ok but with complex code, testing refactored code need to change lot of stuffs no ? Or did I miss something ?21:09
sandy_lockemmh ok21:09
rcgsono, me? thanks am already working on it :)21:09
sandy_lockeso you never test inline in the same source ? you always create testing files ?21:10
sonorcg: =)21:11
rcgsandy_locke, that's one reason i prefer bottom up testing. it keeps the the modules small at first and then increases complexity bit by bit.21:11
rcgand even if you change your design later on, your smaller modules are still reusable and tested21:11
rcgsandy_locke, yep21:11
*** Pat_o_ has quit IRC21:11

qwazixsandy_locke, it's a very nice way to do dpi independent monochrome icons21:34
sandy_lockeqwazix ^ yes, svg is the future, I tell you21:34
sandy_lockeI use it whenever I can21:34
qwazixsandy_locke, faenil is right that the buttonrow is not the best solution so there should be some more thought into that21:34
sandy_lockewhy ^21:35
sandy_locke?21:35
qwazixthey tell me svg has performance issues in qt...21:35
sandy_lockebecause we can't see what's right and left ?21:35
qwazix(though even symbian used svg for icons since forever)21:35
sandy_lockein Qt I don't know (with wayland and opengl, are you sure ?) but with css and html they just work21:36
qwazixwe could of course use svg and if we see significant slowdowns convert to png21:36
sandy_lockeor meshes ?21:37
qwazixbecause a buttonRow is not a tab bar, and there is no clear indication that changing the button row will alter the controls below21:37
sandy_locke3D meshes ?21:37
sonoqwazix: prettiest web based code highlighting ever21:37
sandy_lockewhat's the difference between buttonRow and tabBar then, qwazix ?21:37
sandy_lockeqwazix, yes if we use opengl in nemo, we could use 3d meshes to display 2D21:38
sandy_lockeI did this in Lua some time ago21:38
qwazixhttp://play.qwazix.com/shared/tmp001.png21:38
qwazixthis could make it a bit more clear, but it doesn't work with the current implementation21:39
sandy_lockeok, so I see the difference21:39
sandy_lockeso what will buttonRow be used for ?21:39
sono Crayon Syntax Highlighter v2.4.121:40
qwazixsandy_locke, buttonRow is used to select one of many options. A tab bar is just a visual control, it tells the user that he'll only change views21:40
sonoeep it's php21:40
sonowhat happened, i just forgot the last 2 minutes21:40
qwazixsono, ??21:41
*** sono has left #nemomobile21:41
sandy_lockeqwazix, why not use the breeze buttonRows then ?21:41
qwazixI prefer to not confuse the two themes21:43
*** blam has joined #nemomobile21:43
qwazixA scrollable view would be the simplest and most intuitive thing but it would have a problem with the speedbumps and the levels21:44
qwazixa paged view is doable but a bit overcomplicated, and, if you have many sliders or buttonRows, the user will have to take care where he swipes21:44
sandy_lockeqwazix, I realize: can you show me the actual buttonRow ? I don't find them ^^21:45
qwazixhttp://play.qwazix.com/grog/?p=47221:45
sandy_lockethx21:46
qwazixthe thing is, there is a good amount of space in the headerDock so this situation will be really rare, but we still have to find an acceptable solution21:46
sandy_lockeso the issue here is what ? the buttonRow itself, or the way pages are implemented ?21:47
sandy_locke(sorry, I'm a bit slow right now^^)21:48
qwazixthe issue here is that I used a buttonRow in the wrong way21:48
qwazixI used an option control to do a job of a visual control and this is not right.21:48
qwazixbut I think I have a better solution21:48
sandy_lockeqwazix, arf I still don't understand in what situation a buttonRow is relevant ? ^^21:52
qwazixcorrect ButtonRow usage is for example to choose a wallpaper scaling mode (clip, stretch, cover, fit, center, tile)21:53
*** asterismo has quit IRC21:53
sandy_lockemmmh, all right !21:53
sandy_lockethx21:53
sandy_locke^^21:53
qwazixor to choose a text size for something between predefined options (small, medium, large)21:54
qwazixit changes an option21:54
qwazix a tab bar does not change an option, it just shows a different part of the ui21:54
sandy_lockeqwazix, how can it be triggered ? like taping on an image, or on a option icon ?21:57
qwazixthe buttonrow?22:00
sandy_lockeyes22:06
*** asterismo has joined #nemomobile22:07
sandy_lockeqwazix, could sth like this be useful : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53739998/test-button-pop.gif ?22:12
qwazixthe buttonrow is triggered by tapping on one of the options22:12
sandy_lockebit ugly, but the principle is : you tap on an element and buttons pop to let you choose options22:12
qwazixyes that could work too, but it requires one more tap. It is good for very space-constrained environments22:13
qwazix(like select/dropdown boxes)22:13
sandy_lockeok22:14
sandy_lockeqwazix, you mean it's good to let the buttonRow in place so that user can switch between options easily ?22:14
sandy_lockewhat is your new solution? you have a mockup ?22:15
qwazixno it's completely different, I'll have mockup in a few minutes22:19
sandy_lockeok, sauce once done ;)22:19

qwazixsandy_locke, http://play.qwazix.com/shared/tmp002.pdf22:27
sandy_lockeqwazix, ok so now buttonRows are scrollable vertically and levels snap to the bottom of the component view, is that it ?22:33
*** NIN101 has quit IRC22:34
sandy_lockeI thought you wanted to redo the buttonRow system completely ^^ but like that it's nice, it always annoys me when controls are half-way offscreen and on screen22:35
qwazixI think you still have the buttonRow confused with something else22:35
sandy_locke^^22:35
sandy_lockelol22:36
sandy_lockeso what has change between the new and the old ?22:36
sandy_locke:confused:22:36
qwazixok, let's take it from the beginning22:36
sandy_lockeright, maybe I'll understand this time ^^22:37
qwazixOur initial issue is: what to do if the developer wants to put more controls in the dock than available space22:37
sandy_lockeok that I understood22:37
qwazixthe buttonRow is the control which has the long grey rectangle with the blue rectangle on top. The option with the blue rectangle is the one selected.22:39
sandy_lockeok that I understood too22:39
qwazixSo, I thought, let's put a buttonRow at the top of the dock, and when the end-user clicks on one option, the controls below will change accordingly, more like tabs22:39
sandy_lockeok22:40
qwazix(like on MS software where you click on ribbon tabs and the controls of the whole ribbon change)22:40
sandy_lockeok, but it's a mix between tab and button then22:40
*** piee has quit IRC22:40
qwazixyes, and it might be confusing, we shouldn't do that mix22:41
sandy_lockeok22:41
qwazixso after faenil pointed that out, I decided to ditch that idea22:41
qwazixthis doesn't mean that we don't want buttonRows in the dock22:41
sandy_lockeyes22:41
qwazixwe just want them to be real rows of buttons, that do things (for example in the latest pdf, change the aspect of images)22:42
sandy_lockeok22:42
qwazixso the difference of the new solution is that it deals with extra controls with scrolling, instead of the user having to click somewhere to reveal a new set of controls22:43
qwazixnow he can scroll up and down and reveal new groups (which we call levels) of controls22:43
qwazix(each level is the controls between dotted lines)22:43
sandy_lockebut then, there must be controls that are unnecessary with the selected button in buttonrow, no ?22:44
qwazixthe whole idea behind the levels, is that the dock can be partially closed, so that only one or two (or more) levels are visible22:44
sandy_lockeok22:44
sandy_lockelike that22:44
qwazixif there are such controls the developer of each app should disable them22:45
sandy_lockeand enable them when the relevant button is selected ?22:45
qwazixyes, but this in not certain at all. In my example, changing the image aspect does not affect either font, color or alignment22:45
sandy_lockeyes of course22:46
*** piee has joined #nemomobile22:46
sandy_lockemaybe you can stipulate that if there are new controls for a selected button, they should appear *just below* the buttonRow ?22:47
sandy_locketo not confuse the user22:47
qwazixfaenil, when you're back http://play.qwazix.com/shared/tmp002.pdf22:47
sandy_lockethey know that new options are always just under the button they pressed22:47
qwazixsandy_locke, yes that can be part of the guidelines, though I would prefer enabled/disabled rather than appearing/disappearing controls22:48
qwazixofc this some times is not very good as it eats too much space, but generally the dock isn't the best place for dynamically showing controls22:49
qwazixa settings page would be better for that.22:49
sandy_lockeyes of course22:49
qwazixThe dock is for controls that are used while working, and those shouldn't change too often, to help muscle memory22:49
*** blam has quit IRC22:50
sandy_lockespeaking of which, shouldn't we add a special settings panel for apps (a bit like ios) but where this is the *only* place where one can find the settings for the apps ?22:50
faenilback22:50
sandy_lockeso that apps do not have settings panels inside, but in centralized place ?22:51
sandy_lockealways dreamed of that22:51
sandy_lockefor persistant settings of course, those that you do not change often22:52
sandy_lockeI'm for banishing the settings panel inside apps ;)22:52

Hurrianohai qwazix23:00
qwazixhi Hurrian23:07
Hurrianso, what's happened since I went MIA? :P23:07
qwazixgood stuff, thousands of lines of scrollback :)23:08
qwazixseen faenil's video?23:08
Hurrianthe Glacier buttons?23:08
Hurrianthey look great!23:09
qwazixyep!23:09
qwazixwe also have an almost working slider23:10
qwazixand Glacier styled maliit. Today we were brainstorming on cursor control for maliit too23:11
qwazixhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53739998/vkb-with-cursor-control.gif and https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53739998/vkb-with-cursor-control2.png23:11
qwazixalso we are struggling a bit with the header, but I think we've almost nailed it23:11
Hurrianyep, was talking to faenil about that a few days ago - what's the solution you guys came to?23:12
qwazixhttp://play.qwazix.com/shared/header.pdf23:12
qwazixsee the last page23:12
qwazix(there are changes in the other pages too)23:12
Hurrianqwazix: that's a mouse cursor control for maliit? that's something nicely new.23:13
qwazixyep, I wanted to have something to nudge the cursor left and right, either arrows, or like BB10 magnifier, and we came up with a thinkpad style trackpoint23:14
qwazixif you start a swipe from the trackpoint you can move the cursor around23:14
qwazix(or that's the idea, no implementation yet)23:14
HurrianI'm guessing swiping left and right on the keyboard's reserved to "switch IME"?23:15
HurrianI think the nipple mouse in the middle of the KB looks more balanced, though.23:16
qwazixwe've not decided on that yet (it can be like harmattan, swipe from outside) but even if it's like that, you can swipe from anywhere except the trackpoint for that23:16
Hurrianah.23:16
qwazixyep, that is much better, and it allows up and down too23:16
qwazixI just linked to the first which is a gif just to showcase how it should work23:17
qwazixor we could reserve swiping on space for "switch ime" like some android keyboards (samsung?)23:18
qwazixand leave the rest of the keyboard for other swipes (delete word, tab, etc)23:18
Hurriannah, too much swipe controls gets confusing23:20
qwazixanother idea, pressing and holding on the appswitcher grabs a window, and highlights half of the screen (like windows aero snap). Dropping on the top half creates a top half window, and respectively for the bottom.23:21
qwazixswipe from outside to dismiss the app23:22
Hurriandoes swiping on the outside dismiss one app, or two?23:22
qwazixone23:22
Hurrianand then the other fills the space?23:22
qwazixno, the space is filled with the switcher, so that you can choose another app to place there23:23
*** Martix has quit IRC23:23
qwazix(or something) I've not given it much thought yet, just brainstorming23:23
Hurrianfitting the switcher into half the screen doesn't look too practical23:24
Hurrianit'd be nice if the app that remains stretches to fit the remaining screen space23:24
qwazixthis can be so too, but there needs to be a way to fill the second half of the screen anyway23:24
Hurrianmmm.23:24
qwazixLet's say user drops an app to the top half23:25
qwazixthe bottom half should display, if not the switcher, a grid of icons of open apps23:25
qwazix(or shrink the switcher, fade the thumbnails out and just keep the icons)23:26
qwazixso that the user can choose the second app23:26
Hurriansounds good enough.23:26
qwazixsecond app can be chosen with a tap, no need to hold and drag23:26
qwazixso when dismissing, we can either fill the space with the one app or display that chooser again23:27
qwazixwhen the chooser is visible, there can be an arrow just outside the open app that makes it fullscreen23:28
Hurrianmmm.23:29

qwazixyep23:33
* qwazix ponders having e-speak recite the irc log for him while at work23:37
qwazixI doubt I'll understand anything thoug23:37
qwazixh23:37
faenilqwazix, "The view snaps in a way that the bottom is always a level boundary."23:38
faenilso you want both top and bottom to be at level boundary, tell me how to achieve that, without resizing the header xD23:38
qwazixnot clear?23:38
qwazixsorry I was scrolled one line up23:38
qwazixnot both23:38
qwazixonly bottom23:38
qwazix"The bottom level cannot be clipped halfway (the top one can). "23:39
faenilbut the picture showed a perfectly aligned top23:39
qwazixyeah, that was by chance, let me change it23:39
faenilI imagine this means blocking the header while the inner view is scrolling?23:41
faenillocking*23:41
qwazixehm...23:42
qwazixif you mean if somebody scrolls fast enough and before scrolling ends tries to resize the header, yes23:42
faenilyes, well it's not difficult and unlikely to happen23:43
faenilit's actually quite likely to happen23:43
faeniland when you see you can't close the header, you get upset :D23:43
qwazixI'm not sure because of snapping, momentum will last up to the next boundary23:44
qwazixit's not like it's gonna scroll like the contacts list, we need high friction there, almost like the homepage23:44
faenilqwazix, so, in landscape you say levels are columns23:48
qwazixfaenil, yes, if the developer has bothered23:49
faenilwith what23:49
qwazixrearranging his levels to columns23:49
*** Morpog_Mobile has quit IRC23:50
qwazix(which might be impossible)23:50
faenilbut no snapping23:50
qwazixwhen levels are columns snapping works just the same23:51

faenil| | | |23:51
faenillike that ^23:51
qwazixfaenil, ignore the clipped thing I just missed to delete it23:52
*** wmarone_ has joined #nemomobile23:52
*** wmarone has quit IRC23:52
faenilqwazix, I don't understand how I'm supposed to know if I have to do snapping or not on landscape23:52
qwazixsee page 523:53
qwazixif levels have a width, then you use that width to do snapping23:53
qwazix(and you ignore the height completely)23:54
qwazixif levels do not have a width, you don't do snapping, and the levels are still rows just like they were in portrait23:54
faenilwhy shouldn't they have a width23:55
qwazixI just used width and height as a way to recognize if the developer has designed his levels for both orientations. It might be clearer to create a special property for that23:57
qwazixon portrait, width does not have a meaning (it's always screen.width)23:58
qwazixrespectively for height in landscape23:58
faenilqwazix, also, it seems like you didn't use long text on purpose in the landscape example23:58
faeniltry using "bye" and "doublelongsword"23:58
faeniland see how nice buttonrow becomes23:59
qwazixexactly why I said might be impossible to create column levels. In that case, the dev will not set width on his levels, and we will display them just like we did in portrait i.e. page423:59
