Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

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.

Port debtags to SUSE

an idea by dmuhamedagic

The Debian debtags package and database are a flexible scheme to assign tags (properties) to packages of a distribution. It would be of benefit to SUSE to port debtags.

What are these tags good for?

Porting Twinkle to Qt5

an invention by mkubecek

Twinkle, my favourite SIP client, seems no longer developed, has been accused of "bitrotting" and even dropped from some distributions. While I don't believe in bits actually rotting, there is one pressing issue: twinkle uses Qt3. While there are some patches reportedly allowing to build twinkle with Qt4, e.g. here, all seem to use a Qt3 compatibility layer of Qt4 which has been dropped in Qt5, AFAIK, so that those won't be very future-proof either.

Edit Widget Properties in YDialogSpy

a record by shundhammer


The YaST UI has introspection on the widget level: In any YaST dialog, hit Ctrl-Shift-Alt-Y (Qt UI) to open the YDialogSpy. Use the widget tree that pops up to highlight the corresponding widget in the dialog. Hit the "Properties" button to see the widget's properties (current value, layout stretch factors, layout weights, ...).

QDirStat - Qt-based directory statistics: KDirStat without any KDE, now based on Qt 5

a project by shundhammer

This is about porting the old KDE 3 based KDirstat to the latest Qt 5. KDirStat didn't use that much KDE infrastructure to begin with, and KDE seems to be more and more a moving target. Project repo and web site with more details:

Hardening Quick Event

an idea by LPechacek

Quick Event is an orienteering event management application. On the competition day it is a key part of data collection and results lists generation. A typical Czech orienteering event has anywhere between 400 and 1500 runners whose data must be processed in approximately four hour long window at the competition site. This task demands reliable software as failures have potential for making large number of people irritated and damaging organizing club's reputation. What has been done so far:

yast2-storage-ng as a libstorage-ng wrapper. POC

a project by ancorgs

The goal of this project is to write a proof of concept of a new philosophy for yast2-storage-ng. Instead of just extending the API offered by libstorage-ng, the idea is wrap libstorage-ng so the Ruby code using yast2-storage-ng does not have direct visibility (unless explicitly desired) on the libstorage-ng classes and methods. If you don't know what all that means, keep reading.

[unassigned] improve new openSUSE image writer

an idea by lnussel

In order to aid loading openSUSE installation and Live images on USB sticks we have a little GUI program called imagewriter. It's a bit dated so Fabian started a newer one with better UI suitable for touch screen that offers the available images on demand, store images offline for conferences and fairs etc: It's written in C++ with Qt and still needs some work to be production ready:

HelenOS: <filesystem> of a down

a project by jjindrak

During the previous Hackweek [0], I have successfully implemented, tested and merged [1] an implementation of the entire C++ standard header <future>. This time, my aim is to modernize the C++14-esque standard library [2] of HelenOS [3][4] with a C++17 feature - the <filesystem> header. The <filesystem> header is much larger than the <future> header which I barely managed to implement and test in the allocated time for the previous Hackweek, but <future> was mostly OS-independent as it relied only on previously implemented features of the standard library. The <filesystem> header, however, is limited by the filesystem API of the OS and as such implementing of the entirety of it might not be possible, limiting the scope of the project (which is a good thing due to the time constraints). The primary features of the header [5] that should be implemented:

Rewrite transactional-update in C++

a project by fos

transactional-update, the application to update read-only systems such as openSUSE MicroOS and openSUSE Kubic and the Transactional Server installations of openSUSE Leap, openSUSE Tumbleweed and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, evolved from a POC to a fully fledged solution - and is currently completely written in Bash. This has been working really well in the past, but is gradually reaching its limits, especially when thinking about supporting additional file systems or ports to other Linux distributions - yes, we have a huge interest in other distributions adopting our technology. A C++ version would simplify those abstractions, but would it also make maintenance of the complete application easier? Check that as part of a POC and refresh C++ knowledge on the way there.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

Build kdump initrd without dracut

a project by ptesarik

Project Description

The kdump plumbing is implemented as a dracut module. The original intention was to reuse the logic that dracut uses to deal with storage and network, but it turns out that kdump needs are often very different, so a lot of time is spent on avoiding dracut features that are undesirable.
