Description:

SSK has a new example theme! Concheck is an example of a simple and easy theme that pings a url of your choice (set in the config menu) and colors an orb with the status. Coding the same thing in regular Superkaramba would have been a third longer, and a lot more complex

***

Super SuperKaramba is a python module for developers that wraps SuperKaramba in an object-oriented structure. It's designed to be imported in place of karamba and will handle widget and element ids automatically.

Please try it out and let me know what you think!

... Interesting ...
But IMHO this is posted in the wrong place ...
How many people at kde-look are developers??

Most of the visitors of this page are kde lusers, not kde developers, I mean, Lindows sponsors this site, that must give you an idea ..
So, this is just going unnoticed ..
BTW: It's good to see that someone that cares about creating more eyecandy also cares about functionality and design.

Many others usually just writes the ugliest code they can think about, 'cause all they care about is making it work, not getting it wright.

I made SSK because I wanted a more object oriented api for SuperKaramba. SSK is not a patch, but a python script that uses SuperKaramba just like any theme does. The twist is in the programmer's theme, instead of "import karamba" they use "import SSK", and call SSK's methods instead of karamba's.

What SSK can do that SK or KR can't do? Nothing from the user's point of view. But for developers, so far, it will transparently handle widget and element ids (what the create methods return). Some programmers may be more comfortable with the objects. I'm planning to add some other additional features in the future, like element groups.

This doesn't do anything new for the user. This looks like it is a library that SK programmers can use to make writing SK themes easier. It's not incompatible with or competeing with SuperKaramba. If you are just a user, it's probably not for you.

(note, this is just what i gather from the description. I didn't write SSK).

This is not a fork anymore than u can say that kdelibs is a fork of QT. this is a wrapper and i am guessing a lot of guys who make the karamaba themes wil appreciate this. Good show!

I have thought about doing something similar to this myself, mainly to reduce some of the complexity of SlickBar's code. It will be interesting to see how this turns out... :)
