[yast-devel] GSoC progress report - 14th Jul - 26th Jul 2011 - Separating libYUI

    My report for the above duration can be found at  : I am
placing a copy of the post here for reference.


Last week has been quite dull after the mid term evaluations. The week
started off with me trying to improve the documentation and a home
page for it. While the latter went pretty smooth, the documentation is
quite baffling. Most of the source code was quite well documented and
small hacks with the Doxyfile seemed to produce the proper results.
Nevertheless, there were cases (quite a few) where the results seemed
out of place. While struggling with the docs, I also started working
on the libyui-gtk-pkg package. This package provides the libzypp
plugin for the libyui-gtk module. This has been separated from
libyui-gtk package so as to make it platform independent. I am nearly
there on getting this package to compile. A day or two should be
sufficient, I guess.

By the end of last week, I switched over to writing examples for YUI
in the hope that it would give me further insight into what a
developer might expect from the docs. After a few not-so-great ideas,
I settled on an IRC client written with YUI. The library to manage the
IRC protocol is self-implemented and is complete. At this point in
time, it handles only conversations and a single channel. This is very
small compared to the span of the IRC protocol. But since the main
aspect of the example is to showcase YUI as a UI library, I guess the
features are sufficient.
