Sneak peak at the new kde-telepathy-presence plasmoid

Hello hello KDE fans! New kid on the block! Let’s cut to the point shall we?

Who am I?

What is my GSoC project about?

It’s called “Integrating Kde-telepathy into the plasma workspace”. I’ll be creating some useful plasmoids aimed to be simple and easy to use without cluttering up the desktop of the user. These plasmoids will all be related to the kde-telepathy framework

So now that you know what you’ll be seeing from me during this summer, let me show you my first creation: the Presence Plasmoid.

Thanks to the oxygen team, we have a new icon! You can see it in my system tray (the blue bubble). This first screenshot shows how accounts will be shown (I have only one but if you have more accounts, they will all be displayed in the plasmoid).

presence-preview2

This second screenshot shows how to set the account state.

You’ll have noticed two icons on the top right of the plasmoid. Those icons (from the left) are launchers used to start the kde-telepathy-contactlist and the account manager.
Easy eh?
This plasmoid is new and so, as all new things, it is and will be subject to “change”.

Get in touch

If anyone has feedback on how to make it graphically
better looking, add functionality or other, please feel free to contact me.
You’ll find me (nwoki) on the kde-telepathy mailing list or in irc #kde-telepathy@freenode.

P.S this plasmoid will be shipped in the beta release of kde-telepathy so don’t worry, you’ll get to try it out soon 😉
