You’re welcome to KDevelop!

Filed under: KAlgebra,KDE,KDevelop,my projects — apol @ 3:28 am

Sometimes it’s hard to get started using a tool, some people call it white page syndrome, in KDevelop we had the gray page syndrome:

kdevelop the gray

I guess you see what I mean.

To solve this problem we discussed many times about creating some way to Kickstart a KDevelop session properly, this is what I came up with. It’s nothing very different from what others do, but it’s ours, so that makes it immensely awesome. I guess you’ll understand about it easy by putting a video, looking forward to your feedback!

  2. Wow, I’m completely dumbstruck. This is really awesome and makes the whole app sooo much fancier. Really great work.

  3. Hi, I understand the need rather well :) Kexi’s Approach is the full-size Modern Menu with welcome page
    http://www.calligra.org/news/first-beta-version-of-the-calligra-suite/attachment/kexi-2-4-startup-new-project/
    – already in 2.4. It was planned here http://blogs.kde.org/node/4405
    Thus Kexi is heading to web-like look, without all the extra borders and grays. I am open to exchange experiences :)

  4. When could we expect it (I mean release)? The white page syndrome was not very friendly for newcomers and even in Qt Creator – I use theirs similar approach as the main way how to do everything in it :) So, thank you!
