Redak is just a simple text editor to be used on touchscreen. Basic features are Load, Save, Save As, Browse and Edit text. It has been tested on maemo/meego harmattan n950 and n9 ...
History of this project :
I needed a basic text editor to handle files on my handset ... So I created once a Qt texteditor under the name redaktilo as sample to teach Qt on desktop or tablets (n810) ... using QtGui was usable with a resistive screen (n810) but not on capacitives screens so I deciced to create it again from scratch using QtQuick...
Today supported platform are symbian and meego harmattan.
Basic features are ready to be tested :
- Load, Save, Save As, Browse and Edit text (select, cut and paste).
Features are very limited but enough for me ?
I can't promise I will polish it and add more features but it's opensource so I can promise i will make efforts to merge patches ?
The project is mostly based on QmL and uses C++/Qt for io.(load/save)...
Used ones (symbian or meego) :
- PageStackWindow Page QueryDialog
- Menu MenuLayout MenuItem ToolBar ToolBarLayout ToolButton
- Flickable Column ListView FolderListModel Component MouseArea
- TextArea TextField Text
- Image Rectangle
Since the project is opensource you can tear out and reuse my components :
Custom ones to be reused :
- EditPage : the text area
- BrowserPage : the file browser for loading saving pages
First I created for harmattan then ported to Symbian, the main issue was a minor bug in C++ that prevent loading files (bad path workaround). I feared that was a security issue but it's not ...
Most of the qml code is common between MeeGo and Symbian. But I did not share common parts and I prefer to merge new features ...
I had to find also common images to reuse platform ones ...
- QueryDialog : Had to workaround this bug (using an extra '\n')
I wish I had a n900 to port it to maemo5 too or a RasperyPI to edit text on TV ...
I'll also plan to use it to test Qt lighthouse ports
Just open this link I tested "redak_qt-4_7_4_symbianBelle-0.4.0.sis" on NokiaE7
