Calligra/Formula Shape

Jump to: navigation, search

KFormula is a formula editor for KOffice and can be used to create and edit mathematical formulas that can be included in other KOffice documents. It provides simple input facilities and supports the functionality you expect from a KOffice application.

TODO

Flake

KFormula 1.x provides both a library and a kpart. KFormula 2 will still provide a part, but it won't provide a library anymore, it will make use of Calligra/Flake and provide a shape and a tool. To accomplish this we have to do the following:

  • Move code from libs/kformula to kformula/flake (IN PROGRESS)
  • KFormula application should make use of FormulaShape
  • Complete display support of FormulaShape elements
  • Use KConfig to get KFormula's default settings
  • Finish AttributeManager to handle defaults
  • Write FormulaTool to be able to edit FormulaShapes

ODF / MathML

KFormula 1.6 got great ODF / MathML support, but there're still some elements and attributes unsupported. The complete list of unsupported things follow. Each element of the list includes with kind of support is lacking: loading means that the property is lost while parsing the document, saving means that the property is not written, rendering means that the property is not properly shown, or not shown at all. Many of these tasks are quite easy to implement and could be considered Junior Jobs. (see also the testsuite)

NOTE: Only Presentation Markup is considered here.

Font support

KFormula supports Unicode fonts and includes currently Arev Sans fonts, which have very good support for mathematical symbols. However, KFormula still relies on TeX fonts for some symbol drawing. Thus, work in this area include:

  • Find better math supporting free fonts. Arev Sans has good support, yet not perfect, if we find a better free font, we should provide it instead. This can be considered a Junior Job.
  • Get rid of TeX symbol drawing. These symbols are mostly different kind of brackets, not properly supported by Arev Sans currently. Once we find a font that supports them, we could fully rely on Unicode fonts.

Accesibility

  • Accesibility compliance. Fulfil Gary's report issues.

Usability

  • Direct formula edition, posibly through various languages: OOo, TeX, possibly others.
  • Usability review of KFormula

Scripting

  • Add kross support

Others

  • Wishlist in [1], apart from BUG #53563, which I consider out of scope for KFormula but could make sense integration with applications like KAlgebra.
  • Any other idea for KFormula, I'd like to hear it !
  • Comparison of Formula Editors
