Hi,

I have been away on business for some of the last two weeks. However, I have been able to add the following new feature to the All-In-One Account...

Users can now choose to show their "top N" projects, for example their top 5.

Log into your account and go to the "Your Graphics" section to find out more.

I've also been working on the SuperKaramba desktop widget now that I have a working Linux installation again. It's harder to create widgets in SuperKaramba compared to Konfabulator though!!

Cheers,

Neil.

Update...

I've got an experimental version of the stats script running which allows users to make their All-In-One graphic twice as wide.

I've got to update the mirror script yet to handle the new option as well as some more testing to do.

I hope to have it released within a week if all goes well.

The SuperKaramba widget is progressing slowly!

Cheers,

Neil.

Does SuperKaramba vary differently from Konfabulator or are there many similarities???

Well...

Konfabulator and SuperKaramba both allow interactive desktop widgets to be created for Windows/MAC OS and KDE (respectively).

However...

Konbafulator widgets are written in a combination of XML and JavaScript and has a very well documentated API.

SuperKaramba widgets on the other hand are written in a bespoke scripting language and Python.

Having experience of both, in my opinion, Konfabulator widgets are far easier to create. I wish they had a Linux version!

I do apologise for the slow progress regarding the SuperKaramba widget - it's taking a lot longer than expected!

Cheers,

Neil.

Typical, they do have to make it harder for the likes of you.

Personally I'm not waiting for the SuperKaramba one but keep up the good work and watch out the Python doesn't bite (bet you've heard that one before) :lol: :lol: :lol:

A Linux version is on Konfabulator's "roadmap", but I doubt there will be a verison anytime soon!

Version 0.1 is currently running on my Linux machine, but requires some tweaks to make it releasable.

I hope to release it at the weekend.

However, it won't have all the features of the Konfabulator version.

Further to my last post, the SuperKaramba widget will not be released this weekend. I hope to release it sometime next weekend instead.

This is because I have decided to make the widget have most of the features of the Konfabulator version. This has involved me learning how to use QT with Python and a few other things!

I'm sure the Linux users out there don't mind waiting a bit longer for something which is just as good as what us Windows users have :!:
