In Part 1 I blogged about my progress while creating the Muon-PackageKit-Plugin, now I want to take another step back and share with you what I started my project with. While this has already happened over 3 months ago, we still profit from it.
The subject of this might seem a bit technical, but of course benefits the user in the end: I created an abstraction for system notifiers. (The little program which sits in your systemtray and tells you when your system needs an update.)
After creating the API and testing it with the dummy plugin, I ported the old apt-kded-module to it. Once I had then written the PackageKit plugin, I started to work on a notifier for it as well. :)
So that’s it, we now have an easy way to create a system notifier within Muon. :)
