During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client.

There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

openSUSE obviously is one of the prime targets for distribution integration. Ideally all libraries collected on Inqlude would be available on openSUSE as proper packages. This needs some packaging effort and integration with the Inqlude tooling. Ideally we could automate a big part of this effort.

Technology-wise Inqlude is based on JSON-formatted meta data distributed via git, and a command line client written in Ruby. It would be nice to also have a graphical client, which naturally would be written in Qt. It could use QML to present a nice dynamic UI. The Inqlude web site is done in static HTML and a little bit of CSS. Implementing a proper web UI might be nice, but is of secondary priority right now.

My goal for Hack Week 10 is to get Inqlude into a shape that it can be used productively by Qt developers, and is showing most if not all relevant Qt libraries out there.

While the target of the project is Qt for now, the technology behind is not limited to it, so for the future it might be an interesting direction to extend the concept to other classes of software as well.

You can find the current state at inqlude.org.

If you would like to join the project, you can find some tasks in the issue tracker. Feel also free to add additional tasks or report bugs there.

      As part of Hack Week 15, I have updated the Inqlude web site with the results of the last Summer of Code. It's coming with a new shiny responsive layout now featuring better searchability and categorization.
