After a bit toying around, the first version of project management plugin has landed in the master branch of the kate.git.
First time I developed a new feature in a feature-clone in my scratch space on git.kde.org. Very cool, KDE sysadmins did a GREAT job with that stuff: easy to setup and use ;)
Now, people wanting to try out that, just clone our kate.git and compile the master branch.
Example project is toplevel in kate.git: kate.kateproject
To load it, open Kate, activate the “Project Plugin” and hit the “Open Project” button in your main menu bar and go to the “Projects” tool view on the left.
No, it won’t auto-raise atm and yeah, the button looks awful :P
And here the mandatory screenshot:
It still is not much, but I am happy with the result as this is first time since long for me to code something with model-view and Qt.
