libjana knows when you sleep

New widget: JanaGtkWorldMap A world-map widget that (optionally) shows the daylight hours for a given time/date. Like the clock (also featured in the corner), it’s fully scalable and uses theme colours. Has functions to translate back and forth between latitude/longitude and x/y too, so I’m expecting a libjana-gtk/gypsy mash-up from a certain Mr. Burton (no pressure) 🙂


Try out openmoko-dates

Ok, I realise that dev packages, even with doc packages, are pretty useless without examples… So I took a little time today and packaged up the tests and examples, libmokoui2 (with documentation) and openmoko-dates, and added them to my repository. So if you liked Dates before, perhaps you want to try out openmoko-dates, or check out the new back-end library. I’d like to think that libjana is the calendaring/time equivalent to libempathy; please don’t make me cry that I’m wrong 🙂
Also, a friend pointed out that I got the source lines wrong yesterday (after I asked him to test it..), so here are the proper ones: deb gutsy main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src gutsy main restricted universe multiverse Feedback would really be appreciated!


libjana packages for Ubuntu gutsy

Thanks to Ubuntu’s new Personal Package Archives, there are now libjana packages available for Ubuntu gutsy. I haven’t packaged openmoko-dates/libmokoui yet as there’s a critical bug in MokoFingerScroll I only noticed yesterday (I’d been developing on a dual-core laptop previously, which seems to mask the bug…) that stops it from being useful. I will add libmokoui, openmoko-dates and perhaps more openmoko bits when I get the time. I also haven’t packaged the examples/tests yet as I just haven’t had the time/inclination to sort it out, but I will in due course (meanwhile, check out the svn).
Anyway, if you want to try out any of the libjana bits, the development files and documentation are all packaged and ready to go. The libraries are compiled static (and the pkg-config files reflect this, so it’s not something you need to worry about), as they’re pretty small and not really ready to be used as a dll. The documentation is accessible through devhelp when installed. The /etc/apt/sources.list lines: deb
