I

I am Sadrul Habib Chowdhury. I work mostly on Finch (or the-application-previously-known-as-gaim-text) and libgnt.

Wishlist

Here's a list of stuff I want to have in Finch, libgnt, Pidgin and libpurple:

  • Finch
    • A plugin like markerline to mark the last viewed text in a chat/im.
    • A way to group conversation windows. This can probably be done using a plugin.
    • A 'Get Info' button in the authorization-request dialog.
  • libgnt
    • Split input strings to make sure everything works smoothly over a very slow connection. Done
    • A file selector. This will help implementing the file/folder selection in libpurple's request api. Done
    • Multiline textboxes.
    • Separator in trees.
    • Create a UI from an XML description. For example, "<vbox><label>Hello World</label><button>OK</button></vbox>" will generate a nice little dialog box. Done
    • A spell-checker.
    • An image-viewer. Perhaps use aalib for this. From a brief look, I think Designing a new driver is the way to go.
  • Pidgin
    • Move the history plugin into libpurple.
  • libpurple
    • Allow executing some perl/tcl etc codes using the respective plugin loaders without requiring to write a plugin. patch

If you find any of these interesting and want to implement them, feel free to contact me.
