I even said stuff about it being available by the weekend. So I better get my hands dirty now! ;-)
It seems to work well, even if it doesn't expose ALL the KDE 3.1 API, and it should be useful as a stopgap until the authors release the real thing.
You can see a screenshot of it here
Not only can you now reach this humble weblog through ggl:lateral+opinion (if you are using KDE, of course), but a look at my referrers show that the follwing google searches have gotten the searcher here:
d-bus havoc (reasonable, I wrote about it) kde vs gnome (reasonable, the words are here)
Ok, I wrote kfte. But I never mentioned it here. I wonder how that worked?
Well, just because I want to use KHTML in KRsN, I got the latest PyKDE. It says it is for KDE up to 3.0.3 ...
Well, with very minimal hacking (deleting two lines in KFontDialog's sip file) and a couple of shoves at the build.py, it seems to be compiling allright on KDE 3.1.
Oh, sure, it won't expose the new pieces of API in KDE 3.1, but who cares? It will work. I suppose I will post it somewhere as soon as it does.
Well, if you are one of the 6 who actually checked the link in the previous entry, you will know I am writing a news aggregator ;-)
It is progressing quickly. Now it is almost a real application, and only 3 or 4 important features are still missing.
The only thing I wish is that there was a KDE 3.1 python binding, since I would need it to use KHTML :-(
Qt's QTextBrowser is nice, but it is not a HTML rendering engine, and it would give it a nice integrated feel. Ok, eventually PyKDE 3.1 will come out, I suppose :-)
