Re: Proposed module: conduit

Hi John:

Thank you for your interest in accessibility -- it's a huge milestone when mainstream developers ask "how can *I* do this" versus stating "give me a patch and I'll see if we like it". Awesome stuff, and accessible design/development is a skill I hope more and more people add to their daily tool bag.

Li is the AT-SPI infrastructure maintainer and is *very* good. He will be the best person to help with understanding how to do the work. I apologize for the sketchy documentation -- we're currently working on improving that as part of the GNOME Outreach Program: Accessibility work.

Thanks again for your consideration for accessibility!

From Li Yuan regarding a11y:

"Accessibility is a problem for conduit. The GUI is simple, but the left tree view doesn't support keyboard navigation well. Also one has to drag some items to the right "sync area", there is no way to do this by keyboard. And the "sync area" is not accessible. I suspect accessibility work is need by goocanvas.

Yeah, I saw those bugs today. Thanks a lot. I had a few discussions at
GUADEC on how to actually implement the appropriate atk interfaces, for
the canvas items, using python directly. It seems documentation on how
to do this is a bit thin, at least in comparison with the rest of the
accessibility+gtk docs, where one can set properties on the widgets

Does anyone have any idea on how to go about doing this?

The following is a partial list of non-pim sync functionality
I just tried Conduit (version 0.3.6 in Ubuntu Hardy) and I don't think
it's at all easy. I failed to figure out how to upload (or sync) photos
from a local folder to flickr. I did manage to drag rectangles for
flickr and a folder to the canvas.

It seems roughly comparable to using the gstreamer pipeline editor
instead of using Totem. We can't possibly present this as an application
for users. Major -1 from me.

I don't like assistants (wizards) but I guess that this would be better
with an additional assistant, guiding people through the choices
somehow. For instance:

Page 1:
Synchronize to web or to device:

[] Website
[] Palm Pilot
[] Windows CE Device
[] Nokia Internet Tablet
[] Mobile Phone

Page 2 (Website):

Choose Folder.

Synchronize this folder to:

[] Flickr
[] Picasa

[] YouTube
[] Google Video

General Files:

== Photos ==
FSpot/eye of gnome/nautilus/folder <-->
 * Flickr
 * Picasa
 * SmugMug
 * ShutterFly
 * Facebook
 * iPod Phots

== Videos ==
totem/nautilus/folder -->
 * Youtube
 * iPod Video
 * nxxx

== Files ==
* file/folder <--> file/folder
* S3 support (eta: 1 week)
* Google Documents

== Notes ==
Tomboy Notes <-->
* Backpack Notes
* File/Folder

== Misc ==
* RSS feed enclosures
* Desktop settings (GConf)

There is also network sync functionality that allows two PCs to sync
peer to peer any of the above listed data.

I have not gone into the other sync permutations possible, and I am
certain I have left some items out.
