DIY Planner Dynamic Templates



  • "Link to the Web Page containing the Project":http://www.diyplanner.com/node/6210

    DIY-Planner is a forum for folks who want to make their own organizers and planners.

    I found the group a few years ago and got the idea to write some Qt software to create pages of any size.



  • I really don't know what you are trying to say. What are "pages of any size"? And where exactly is the showcase?



  • Did you follow the link ? I believe the web page speaks for itself.

    I could, however, be mistaken ;)



  • Sorry, I somehow missed the link. Perhaps it would be clearer to make the word DIY-Planner itself the link instead of putting a separate one above it. That does excuse me from having to read more carefully, however.

    edit: Looks like a nice application! Nice work! I will certainly look at how you did this if I need printing capabilities like this in the future.



  • Well, I am planning a major re-write. One of the most often asked-for features is the ability to merge a calendar and have the events print. The Qt Mobility bundle has classes that can import an iCalendar file. I have been dreading trying to write an iCalendar parser myself. Previously, the only available library "(libical)":http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/documentation:featured_projects:libical?do=export_xhtml is written in object oriented C and is very hard to follow and, I suspect, not well maintained.



  • The output looks very promising :)
    First idea that popped into my head is that this would make an awesome KOffice plugin (http://koffice.org) which would generate a KWord document that can then not only be printed but also be populated or saved as ODF. Anyway, just thinking out loud ;)



  • Nice idea, but I'd rather go right to ODF if I was going to do that. I do not want to tangle my application with KDE. It is not platform independent. My application is.



  • May I just note that KOffice is not platform dependent; it is known to run on a large set of platforms already. Practically all of the ones that Qt runs on (Mac/Windows/Linux (including Gnome etc)/Bsd/Solaris/Maemo/Meego/Haiku).

    You are naturally free to choose not to add a plugin for KOffice as one of the tools in your project, but please make sure that its not a decision based on misinformation :)



  • Well, according to "the Windows Download link":http://userbase.kde.org/KOffice/Download#Windows and "the MacOS X Download link":http://userbase.kde.org/KOffice/Download#Mac_OS_X , neither platform is robustly supported at this time. I did find KOffice is listed in "Fink":http://pdb.finkproject.org/pdb/package.php/koffice-base , but still depends on X11 while OpenOffice runs native in MacOS X.

    Sorry I do not agree with you, but we each have our own opinion.
