Subject: [Tikiwiki-devel] TikiWidget Project Information
Back at TikiFest in DC, Marc and I talked about a cross-platform
application that interfaced with Tiki on the back-end, reducing the need
for folks to have their browsers up, or their email. Not that either of
them would alert you if a watch was triggered anyway... The idea was
for a cross-platform application that would run on few resources
(running Firefox on my XP machine takes up 130M with two tabs open!),
and would alert you when a watch or something was triggered. This could
either be something audible, something flashing, or something as
obnoxious as a pop-up.
As if I don't have any more stuff on my plate. LOL I'm hoping I can
appeal to some Java programmers that may not be as php-savvy, but would
like to contribute to TikiWiki in some other way. Baseline development
is with JDK 6 and NetBeans.
This initiative is in its planning stages, and as I jotted down some
thoughts on it, it became clear that this would not - nor should we
attempt it - be ready for March's 3.0 planned release. More realistic
is something ready for testing in the summer and ready for 4.0 since
some tweaking and testing of Tiki code will be necessary.
Anyway, this is a solicitation. There isn't a lot of info out there
yet.haven't had time to translate from notepad to Wiki, but I have done
some preliminary work on how I want the gui to appear, and got things
organized with Sourceforge, so there's a project site all ready for it
once I get the SVN repository initialized, likely over the coming
If you are interested, please take a look at
http://tikiwidget.wiki.sourceforge.net/ and either leave a note on those
pages, a comment, or email me if you're interested in helping out.
There are also forums on the sourceforge site, you can use those as
This is entirely a project to support TikiWiki. A test site will be
setup for people to work from for the code tweaking I mentioned, but
that's down the road. I've got a roadmap somewhere in my head, just
need to get it on paper and get some Java coders eager to help out.
