Kontact improvements & integration ideas

Downloads:  771
Submitted:  Feb 1 2006


Some ideas to improve overall usability and integration of Kontact with other KDE apps.

Main points are summarized on the screenshot.

- Kopete-Kontact integration : IM contacts should be better integrated with Kaddressbook : add an easy way to \\\"link\\\" IM contacts to contacts in address book (e.g., give a list of all Kopete IM contact in the Contact Editor). Status (availability and so on) of contacts should appear in KMail main view + Kontact \\\"summarized view\\\". Moreover, infos (like pictures) could be automatically retrieved from IM profile and added to Kaddressbook.

- Kontact and integration with other apps : Kontact could be efficiently integrated with digiKam to tag pictures with contact names (e.g. \\\"John is on this picture\\\", and thus automatically generate galleries of pictures for each contact. Integration with Last.fm profiles could be interesting, too : when I look at a contacts, I get the list of the songs he was recently listennig at. A futher integration to Amarok (or similar app) could allow to play these songs if they are locally available. Lastly, I could be nice to have a blog integration for contacts, allowing to see/read the last posts directly from Kontact interface.

- Last idea (actually, not really a new idea :) ) : have a \\\"quick answer\\\" box in KMail, like in Thunderbird or GMail. A \\\"Chat with this contact\\\" link could also be added, see screenshot.

That\\\'s all folks ! :)
Some of these ideas could be added in current kontact versions, some other would be better for KDE 4...

Contacts are nice.

I would still like to see some of the ideas from here implemented, such as Amarok's last.fm tying in with contacts, and digiKam allowing you to tag photos with KDE contacts.

I think I'm going to go to the KDE bug database and request those features for digiKam and Amarok respectively. However, I'm not sure either is in a spot to focus on adding new features.

Amarok 2 is still being refactored for the new context view, KDE 4, Plasma, new playlist, etc. And digiKam is also focusing on stabilizing the bevy of new features there, and the KDE 4 port.

Nihilism makes me smile.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
