The other day I got an itch to implement the "shelf" (to which you can drag
files as a temporary holding zone to be placed in another directory) idea
that was tossed around here a while back. I decided that the shelf should
be a sidebar thing, so I delved into the "notes" component, and began to
learn how it works.
But it occurred to me that someone else might be implementing this, so
before I go much further, I would like to know if anybody else is working on
I don't know too much about bonobo/oaf/CORBA, but I read the bonobo tutorial
on the GNOME web site, and feel that I could hack my way around the code.
If possible, I would like to use the nautilus icon view component (widget?)
(IE the thing that renders the files/directories in a Nautilus window) to
represent the shelf.
If anybody had any suggestions/help I would appreciate it since I'm still
mostly in the dark with this stuff.
Lord, protect me from knowing what I don't need to know.
Protect me from even knowing that there are things to know that I don't know.
Protect me from knowing that I decided not to know about
the things that I decided not to know about.
