Engage module accepts DROPs

Standard

Oh baby yeah! The e17 engage module now accepts .eapp XDND drops – try
grabbing a .eapp file in evidence and dropping it – pretty cool no? 🙂
very exciting! Oh, also the e_util_eapp_edit application now acts as a
drag source, so you can drag the icon it has loaded into engage too 🙂

Firefox plugin

Standard

OK, so as a distraction from all the paperwork at home I set out on a small mission – we should be able to browse our edje (.eet & .eapp) files in our browser! So, a download of the plugin SDK and a hack in the mozilla source later and we have this:

The page being viewed is simply


OK, so I need to tidy up the code and animations are not properly flowing yet, but this has to rock at least slightly 🙂

BLOODY JAVA!!!

Standard

OK, so anyone who tried may have noticed that java behaves a tad
peculiarly in e17. We assumed this was because there was a bug in out
(still very young) code. However, after quite a bit of debugging it
seemed not. Now, me being “blessed” with Java experience was assigned
to find the issue and… 3 days later having gone through some nasty
low level (in the VM, not the loaded classes) and about 10 custom
virtual machines I found the problem – Java detects what WM you are
running, rather retarded no? But worse – the Enlightenment detection is
done in a way that only works in e16, never in e17. So for now we have
to pretend that we are a different WM – then Java works fine 😦 Still,
I got awarded: HandyAndE gets a gold start for enduring
the pain of scouring java’s src to figure out why java suddeny just
behaves differently under e17
