FreeSoftware to the fullest!

You’re welcome to KDevelop!

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!

    Great work!

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

    Hi, I understand the need rather well 🙂 Kexi’s Approach is the full-size Modern Menu with welcome page
    – already in 2.4. It was planned here
    Thus Kexi is heading to web-like look, without all the extra borders and grays. I am open to exchange experiences 🙂

    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!

    This plasma kickstart for my favorite IDE is FABULOUS.
    I NEED it. NOW.
