We'd like to announce Editje, a new tool to edit Edje files in a
visual way. It's based on interactions like Flash for animations,
where you have a timeline and select points, then states and it will
do the rest.
That said, it's different from hand-written edc files, where we used
to create as few states as possible and add custom programs moving
from one to another. Editje have couple public programs that we call
signals, they're basically of 2 types: signals that convert to other
signals (translators) and signals that triggers animations. When one
create an animation, he gets couple of programs pre-defined:
- signal:animation,play, souce:animation-name -> triggers start
- signal:animation,stop, souce:animation-name -> stop
previously started animation.
- signal:animation,end source:animation-name -> emitted when
Editje filters all internal programs from UI, they are still in EDC
and have "@" as prefix. Names are mangled to make it possible to
restore original timelines.
Given that design decision, we don't need to create lots of part
states manually. Actually now you just have one part state "default",
but in future we plan to add more to be used as "template states" so
during animations you don't need to manually set all the state values
again, instead you just "copy from state".
More information, see http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/changeset/43724
as you see, we're still in early stages and more work is to come.
Please try it and help us improve this tool as there is no matching
tool in free software yet!
