So, what am I working on?
"Instant Outlining" is the interesting thing in the
Radio space right
now. Since I have really old hardware (P233, 64MB, 4GB)
Radio runs a bit slow, especially the app UI. That makes it
inconvenient for Instant Outlining--so I'd like to write an
outliner capable of Instant Outlining, in Python/Tk.
Meanwhile I use Radio to manage my instant outline, in which
I plan that.
I'd like to redo Stapler's
interface, so it's a bit more usable... though still not
grandmaware, since it's pretty hard to specify parts of an
HTML document, especially with the non-compliant, pragmatic
HTML browsers accept and display.
I'm posting this (and the last two empty items, for
testing--guh) with another Radio tool, Footbridge, which is
an abstraction of the gadget I mentioned in my first
Advogato diary. The configuration interface is going to be a
tough nut to crack; I'd like to just leave it at
manual editing of the FootbridgeData table, but that's not
very friendly to any potential users. Except me, of course.
Kit is another Radio tool, which is actually a bundle
of lots of little gadgets. One of them is a replacement News
Aggregator page that does more than just list items: you can
give a timespan for which items you want, and search by key
words. I need to do a new interface for it, too, since I'd
like to be able to show news by channel category,
and that's a non-trivial shift in concept model thingy.
Jeweler, I haven't even started on. Eh.
