Re: Adding application to KDE and getting image of current




I love the idea of annotations built into a screenshot tool! Our users have been asking for this.

However, I hate to be that guy, but have you considered extending Spectacle instead? Spectacle is mature, well-integrated into KDE Plasma, has all the features highlighted on https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip (except for editing and annotation), and it's already shipped by default in all KDE distros that I'm aware of. Your work would have a hugely greater impact if you extended Spectacle instead!

I've created a page based on the template and added a link to "Incubated Projects" under "Candidates", don't know if I was supposed to do that or someone else:
https://community.kde.org/Incubator/Projects/Ksnip
And here is the repo: https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip Was that so far correct and according to the process? If yes, what's supposed to happen next?

About the application, Ksnip is a screenshot annotation tool, which can also take screenshots itself. I've started to work on it as I was missing some tool to annotate screenshots which I have taken via Spectacle, which is a great screenshot tool, but as said, the annotation features were missing in my opinion.

Starting here is a good bet!

What's the app you're proposing?

On the link https://community.kde.org/Incubator/Incubation_Process it is mentioned what a Candidate needs to provide, but not where and in what form.

With a written statement on a public place, like for example the kde-community
list. Here few past examples:

https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-community/2013q4/000375.html
https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-community/2014q1/000552.html
https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-community/2014q2/000787.html
https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-community/2015q2/001374.html

Which kind of application are we talking about?

Ciao
