StarMenu by lildeimos is a custom Qt Quick component for creating an icon based popup menu. The component offers a number of layout options, ranging from the “star” layout from which it gets its name (ie circular or oval layout around a specified point) through to layout of icons in an arbitrary grid or in a line defined by start point, radius and item separation.
The component is delivered as a QML plugin which you can use very easily by simple import. Source code is provided, along with documentation, which is hosted on the main wiki. There is an excellent test app which allows you to easily try out and see all the options provided by the component (note that at time of writing this isn’t on the summary page, but you can get it from the Files section). Best of all, the component is truly cross platform, and has been tested on MeeGo Harmattan (N9), Symbian, linux, Windows, Android (with necessitas).
The only obvious improvement we can see would be to make the project “platform theme aware”, but this of course might come at the cost of branching or supporting less platforms. If you have any better ideas the author is more than interested in hearing your ideas for further improvement or collaboration.
