notes on /plugins:

  • TODO: document easy "build-all" process on techbase

note for developers: kdevplatform API breakages must be fixed in every stable repo, i.e. everything in https://projects.kde.org/projects/extragear/kdevelop must be compiling

Build Bot & Unit Testing

  • TODO: Get a build bot running
    • either on every commit (much work)
    • or at least once a day (single to implement)
  • TODO: Get a unit test bot running
    • requirements:
      • no failing unit tests (XFAIL is OK)
      • no agressive performance tests (time limit, memory limit, ...)
  • TODO: investigate cdash
    • kdelibs dashboard is down, not a good impression
  • TODO: ask PovAddict on his experience with build bot + unit tests

Gluon

  • try to rebase gluoncreator on kdevplatform
  • put improvements into the platform
    • plugin based diff-viewer (i.e. to compare designer files, images, ...)
    • improved history viewer (timeline, ...)
  • alternatively try to reuse parts of kdevplatform in gluoncreator
    • problem: kdevplatform (rightly so!) expect full kdevplatform availability

Unit Tests

developers:

  • never submit failing unit tests (use QEXPECT_FAIL)
  • try to run unit tests regularily

Wed
