Confy WiP


New upcoming feature in Confy:
talk progress indicator

every "talk row" widget will show talk progress as a vertical bar on left side


On room page the result is a nice continuous bar that gives the idea of the progress of the whole room :)


On talk detail page, the bar span the top border:


get it from git or aur

#confy #FOSDEM2021
Would be an honor :D
I'm waiting for the app to be on flathub
Oh nice: Confy showed up on "New & Updated Apps" on flathub, but the app page return an error...
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong...


Confy 0.4.1


Version 0.4.1 of Confy, the conferences schedule viewer for GNOME, has been tagged.
This release comes with support to libhandy 1.
A confy-git package on AUR has been created, for those of you using #archlinux

I've removed links to flatpak on project page because it never worked as it should. I'm planning to add Confi to flathub in a future.

I should start to write a propert changelog :)

Also, I should proof-read when i write posts in English while I'm tired... 🤦


A small update on #confy

A wip branch with updates to support future libhandy 1.0 (0.80.0 right now) has been created: https://git.sr.ht/~fabrixxm/confy/log/wip/handy1

So far:
- It is possible to add a custom pentabarf url to the conferences list
- The map page now show the map, scrollable and zoomable. It's ugly but i works
- Map image and conference image are loaded asynchronously
- pages stack has been replaced with Handy.Deck, with support for swipe gesture to get back
So, now I'm trying to add some settings to the app.
I've populated the .gschema.xml file, but I can't manage to have the app found it, running on the host (I get a Gio.Settings without keys) or running it as a flatpak ("Settings schema is not installed").
Why it must be so difficult?
I think I'll go with a couple of python lines to replace this..
So after some hours spent on this, I noticed an error in compile logs:
the schema was invalid, but meson doesn't stop on test() errors... useful...


What's new in #confy today:

- nice button in headbar to update main menu list or event cached data
- nice overlay toaster to show notifications


- main menu data is updated automatically at start if older than one day
- event cache is updated automatically at open (if network is available).
- event data is downloaded asynchronously. This leave the UI responsive while downloading.
- talk detail page show "conflicting" starred talks

- Remind upcoming starred events with a system notification

What's wrong in #confy today:

- flatpak doesn't work anymore (see #1. I think it's related to sandbox permissions, but I can't understand how fix it. So, flatpak building in builds.sr.ht is disabled.
- The "+" button ("Add event from URL") is just a placeholder. More work must be done to support it correctly
- apart from event data, other downloads are still sync and block the ui
- I still have issues with Leaflet and folding.... I'm missing something here...



please, send help...

What's missing, in "likely it will land" order:

- Download all data asynchronously.
- An app menu is needed, with things like "options" and "back to event list" ...
- An options window, with things like "update event cache every" and "clear all cached data"
- The "Map" page is still a placeholder
- Support for FOSDEM's room status API
