Glade in Libre Application Summit

First of all ISponsored by GNOME Foundation would like to thanks the GNOME foundation for sponsoring my trip to Denver to attend Libre Application Summit

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

You can find the slides of my talk as PDF here, and the sources here!

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!
