Clutter is cool, that's the only why!
Here comes the important part. This interface should be able to do 100% of the things GNOME-Zeitgeist can do, but in a cooler way . That includes
- Searching for items
- Filter by time, words, type of file
My idea is to base the interface around this: http://www.stefanoforenza.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/zg-spacetravel.png That means that each day is represented by a "card" that goes backwards and forwards in time, with a effect similar to OSX's Timemachine application. On the "cards", we'll have the items. By default, all items will be shown, so scrollbars are needed. With filters enabled, only the matching items are displayed.
I'd be something like http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/593/mockupi.png
In order to implement it, a series of elements are needed; each one will be coded on its own and then added into the program. The elements are
- 1.-Card displayer and mover(Container) [HALF DONE]
- 2.-Zeitgeist item shower
- 4.-Thumbnailer [DONE]
- 5.-Sidebars for preferences and that [IN PROCESS]
- 6.- A port of Gtk.Calendar
- 7.-Info bubbles-on-hover [DONE]
