As usual, it was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones specially outside the GNOME community.
This opportunity I talked about the plans I have to integrate Glade with Gnome Builder and other IDEs
Sources you say?
Yes sources, since my talk about custom UI interfaces in 2013 I been making all my slides with Glade and using glade-previewer to present them live
glade-previewer is a tiny application shipped with Glade used mainly to preview UI
It’s relevant options are:
-f, --filename=FILENAME Name of the file to preview --screenshot File name to save a screenshot --css CSS file to use --slideshow Make a slideshow of every toplevel widget by adding them in a GtkStack
Normally to preview a glade file with a custom css file you would use a command like
$ glade-previewer -f talk.glade --css talk.css
Now if you instead want to make a presentation with it all you need to do is add –slideshow option and glade-previewer will pack every toplevel widget in a GtkStack and switch between pages with PageUp/PageDown buttons
As a bonus I extended –screenshot option so that when used in conjunction with –slideshow it will take a screenshot of every toplevel and save them as multiple pages if the format supports it!
