acrouthamel added a comment to D15418: Dim application icon when it is not playing anything.

All of that is reserved for being "Muted". Just because it doesn't play something doesn't mean it couldn't start producing sound any moment.
We shouldn't use anything that could be confused as "muted" ("can never make any sound") for "not playing currently"

acrouthamel added a comment to D15418: Dim application icon when it is not playing anything.

How about changing the volume icon for the non-playing application to audio-volume-muted.svg? Then, when it is playing audio, it reverts to low/high icons as usual, based on slider location.

Yeah exactly, something like that. Where they can git clone (making sure their gitconfig is correct, like how mine wasn't recently), make a branch (and track master), mess it up (lol I've never done that!), submit it via arc diff, tell them how their Git commit is too wordy and needs to break at 80 chars (*ehm* again, never done that before), have someone (newcomer group?) review it and accept it, and then have them arc land it.

acrouthamel added a comment to D15340: Add Solarized Light and Dark themes.

Sure, please use kdesrc-build as described here:
https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Build_from_source

Once setup, you can build everything by invoking ./kdesrc-build
You can also pass a module to build:

./kdesrc-build syntax-highlighting

Ideally, you should build with dependencies:

./kdesrc-build --include-dependencies syntax-highlighting

If you need help, feel free to ask.

acrouthamel added a comment to T4862: Try AsciiDoc or AsciiDoctor to fix books.

I highly recommend AsciiDoc (specifically Asciidoctor)! It has a ton of great features, has standardized syntax (unlike Markdown), can easily include sections of source code from other files (super cool and useful for KDE code documentation), can include other AsciiDoc files to make document management easy, requires no special XML formatting application, and if you follow their recommendations (keeping all sentences on one line each, using ATX sections, etc.) it makes source control via Git a breeze. And you can export to any format, including DocBook.

I've spoken with @xyquadrat regarding kicking off the Bugsquad schedule with Krita, to align with a goal/fundraiser to eliminate bugs. Awaiting details from him, but tentatively we are scheduling for the 16th of September to start. A second date would be either the 23rd, or during the week.

Btw, we forgot to add the themes to the Qt resource file, see also D15358

You can test the theme with the demo app in ksyntaxhighlighting: Go to the build-directory, then type ./bin/codeeditor <path-to-some-file-to-highlight>
Then, you can switch the theme with the context menu.

acrouthamel added a comment to D15340: Add Solarized Light and Dark themes.

Looks good to me.

Related: in order to have better unit testing, would you be willing to add a unit test to https://github.com/KDE/syntax-highlighting/blob/master/autotests/theme_test.cpp called

void testJsonData() { ... }

This test would iterate over all themes via Qt Resources and check wether all 31 default text styles exist, and also check for the existence of the editor colors. This would help us to catch theme issues early in the future.

Feel free to commit this patch now.

Thu, Sep 6, 10:20 PM · Goal settings 2017
acrouthamel added a comment to T8711: Gathering feedback from newcomers on the current onboarding experience.

What made you step and and decide to contribute to KDE?

  • Besides enjoying the DE, it appeared to be a community that was making smart decisions (2017 Goals for example) and was growing.

What was your point of entry to KDE?

  • Nate's blog posts basically, and Nate himself.

In what area are you contributing to (development, translation, documentation etc.)?

  • Right now a mix of development and bug triaging, with maybe documentation later.

How did you decide where to contribute?

  • I decided to work in areas that will help in the 2017 Goals. I like the productivity goal to polish the DE, and I like the onboarding goal to make the project easier to join. Helping a long-time FLOSS project grow is something I'd like to do. Right now my development efforts are small patches, since I'm not much of a programmer right now. Just things I know I can handle. So I'm now focusing on bug triaging, to hopefully assist those who do know how to program well.

What steps did you follow to get involved?

  • I started out talking with Nate, he helped me through the 1-2-3 of getting signed up with my various accounts and a dev evironment. He and Henrik recommended some Phabricator Tasks and bugs/feature requests to tackle. Mostly icon fixes, menu edits, stuff like that. From there, I just spent time browsing randomly through Phabricator, finding Tasks and Projects that were interesting. Watching the Activity feed on the right is also helpful to see what cool things are happening and might be worth looking at to offer comments or assistance.

What did you enjoy most in the process of joining KDE?

  • The friendliness of everyone, and the ease of joining. There were no trials or tests to go through.

What where the difficulties you came across?

  • The introductory process of reading Wiki pages. Even with the improvements to Get Involved, there is no easy 1-2-3, here is how you get started. For example, to get started as a developer, you are pointed to an article, which has lots of information, sure, but is not a set procedure really. I was looking for something like:
    1. Create a Bugzilla account, do this.
    2. Create a KDE Identity account, do this.
    3. Create a Phabricator account, do this.
    4. Get your dev environment setup, follow these steps.
    5. Pull down this Git repo (say, a tutorial repo), create a branch
    6. Edit this file, commit it, and create a diff via Arcanist.
    7. Once approved, land your commit like this.
    8. You have now followed the basic process and can contribute!
