Today i have hacked KMail and extracted a little implementation to add a
welcome page when user select the root folder on "My Album" and "My Tags
Originaly, this folder are always displayed empty and are not managed by
database. I think this is a good place to show a nice KDE like "Welcome
page". This sound like more user friendly than an empty page, especially when
digiKam is started at the first time.
There is a screenshot with this page in action at this url :
The patch against svn to test it is here :
Paco, Marcel, Achim :
The implementation is very simple and isn't intrusive with digiKam core. All
page content is implemented like an HTML+CSS+PNG file in digikam/data/about
folder on svn. Only a simple wrapper is added on digikamview.cpp to check if
user select root folder, and all the rest is implemented into
albumwidgetstack.cpp to show the page.
The page content is very simple to update. All strings are in a new method on
Note : to use this patch, please checkout svn before to get digikam/about/data
The only little problem with this implementation are i18n. If i commit the
source code now, new strings will be added to .po files...
What do you think about ?
