Re: Adding application to KDE and getting image of current




Yeah, I was kind of afraid that you would say that.

When I started to work on the project I hadn't thought about extending any other projects, mostly due to my limited knowledge of Qt at that time. Now I have invested a lot of time and effort into this project and it seems to be working fine and users are happy.  
Also, KSnip was written mostly with the idea to provide annotations and with Spectacle I see the focus on screenshots and I've got the feeling that it would require a lot of refactoring and wouldn't be doable just like that.

Regards,
Damir

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 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.
