Dolphin bug, help needed




Hello,
I'm trying to fix a bug in Dolphin. It basically doesn't show any information in columns like Artist, Image size etc. in details view. 

After finding what is missing I wanted to see an example way to retrieve that metadata. I decided to look at the code of Information Panel which works correctly.  After seeking some help in the IRC channel I decided to dive into the code. Information Panel uses Baloo widgets to fill that information. KFileMetada is meant to be used as a fallback compile time option. And I was told thay KFileMetadata has been deprecated. However, I found that Baloo widgets still uses it somehow. Also the code in Baloo Widgets seems a bit convoluted and repeats the same checks such as multiple/single file again and again. I made some notes since the process has many layers and easy to forget. https://gist.github.com/ongun-kanat/4fc3fe331196238c74152ab42057faa7

I want the fix Dolphin bug so I need some guidance. Is it valid to use KFileMetaData directly to fill in the columns in Details View? If it's not, are there any other plans which I may help?

I also wonder if there is anyone actively working on Baloo widgets. It seems it needs some refactoring and I may need some mentoring to decide on the architecture.

Thanks for help,
Ongun
