Description:

A multi-client Notification Daemon.

UPDATE @ 19/06/2006
-------------------
Sorry! There haven't been many updates! My main laptop hd crashed and I lost alot of data (I do have a backup with most important data though)

Crosslink is probably going to work together with the Galago project. We are going to contact Galago soon.
Check here for more information: http://www.galago-project.org/news/index.php

UPDATE @ 30/04/2006
-------------------
Visit the wiki for more information!

UPDATE @ 30/04/2006

Thanks to Tony Wolf (dragon-fire) this project might become a reality! Read more in the changelog.

CLICK ON THE LINK "Enhanced Knotify HTML Document" TO GET MORE INFORMATION!
I created this document to describe my thoughts better.
Direct link: http://www.debianbox.be/files/kde4knotify.xhtml

Message to all: Thanks for all the comments!
- - - - - - - -
NOTE: This can be seen as an extension to Knotify, because it already exists in some way, but Knotify isn't very good :)
- - - - - - - -

Example: popups from Kopete are pretty ugly :)
and popups from other applications don't look like it.
They could also overlap eachother and yadi-yadi-yadi

I suggest a notification program where all the "popups"
(notifications) have the same look and animation,
ofcourse the look/animation/sound can be adjusted PER application.

In CAES control module (works through config files) you would be able to set what the default look is,
and an edited look/animation/sound per application/action you wish to use with CAES.

This can be done for alot of applications. The process will be made as easy as possible for developers.

Also, this is something that should be integrated together with [opens new tab *god thank for tabs*] this idea: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=33673
(Tasks Info in Less Windows)

Give your thoughts!




Changelog:

#### 01/05/2006 ####
Project renamed to: Cross Application Event Server (CAES)
We have a wiki on line for new ideas and development: http://caes.os-forge.net/wiki/

#### 30/04/2006 ####
There haven't been many updates, I know!
But there is big news.
We are going to try to make this project reality!

Independent of KDE or any desktop,
we are going to create a server called CAES (Cross Application Event Server or maybe Cross Application Event System to refer to the whole system).

This server will work together with clients to show the popups. We are going to make it very easy for developers to integrate CAES with their application.

We're still brainstorming.
But hopefully a website will be up soon enough.

Oh, the guy that's going to do most of the programming: Tony Wolf (dragon-fire)

Isn't this supposed to be done by dcop
+knotify in kde4 ?
Dcop should be "expanded" to allow applications to store in system tray,
from what I've read....

Damn, that looks abit like our project...

But our project is going into another direction anyway
(please check the wiki and the ideas page)

We want to connect all applications to an event server which handles not only "showing messages", but also other actions, like changing volume when you get an important call through VoIP

I am revising wether to make use of rewritten applications, dbus or dcop AND dbus.

Because we don't want to make it KDE-only.

Oh, and another thing, the Galago libnotify thing seems to be based around Gnome? Atleast for now.. Yes, maybe KDE4 will support Dbus, but it's not quite sure yet how that's going to happen. I don't think KDE4 will drop Dcop in favor of Dbus

This is because it is your project, except that it's already done and working. If you really want to do it right, implement libnotify for KDE, which is just a Gnome convenience library for the protocol, nothing more. There's exactly nothing Gnome-specific in the specification itself.

Oh, I only checked out libnotify
But I am not the programmer of CAES

I just had the initial CAES idea
I guess I will check out Galago and see how I can improve that by putting the ideas together.
I will talk to our programmer when he's back

Don't confuse Galago with notification spec. It's just hosted there, but has nothing to do with Galago, at least not directly.

 not kde only?

 
 by mattepiu on: May 4 2006
 
Score 50%

Damn, the feature I wish to ask could be
really easy with DCOP but an hell without it:

System notification talking and hearing.

Basically , an option for the notification
system to not only display dialog, but use
system text-to-speech (through dcop) to
notify an event, then start an optional
voice recognition software (I know what's
the situation, but cause system notification
would require a very little dictionary -yes-no-ok,
some project may be "tailored" in a littler and faster version lately)

If the project gets where we want it to go, this will be one of the possibilities. Our project will become pretty advanced, so wish us luck.

We are going to call the whole project "CrossLink" and every application will be linked through our server.
This means that we will be able to define something like: "on THIS event, show a popup using THIS client/style and do THIS action"

For example: one of the options could be: VoIP call - your music gets dimmed to 25% - you get a notification, when you click Pickup Call on the notification or in Skype, your audio will pause - or if you choose cancel - your music volume will be set back to its original.

Another example that requires more research, but should be possible if the project evolves well: you could link a GPS system/software client to CrossLink and define an action to change the background (for example) when you move the laptop to another place

Popups/Notifications are the main focus, but we hope to make everything alot more dynamic and structured on the desktop in the end. And we mean Everything.

 great idea

 
 by cyborg on: May 14 2006
 
Score 50%

suggestion:

* caes is a server demon with minimal dependencies

* plugins for dcop, xserver, dmesg, and other stuff

name the kde frontend krosslink and it would be kde'ish

also allow to log stuff, and fast-search for events (e.g.: "kopete: somebody added you to his list" which is mostly lost all the time)


-> kde definitely need some central logging and popuping engine


Linux is like love of god: free for all, but not taken too serious

If all goes well,
that should all be integrated.

It was already in the initial idea.

The CAES programmer is very busy though, I havent heard from him lately

Since integration is one of the key strength of the kde project, a better integration of knotify would be great.

I certainly miss something like a "quiet mode" for when I am watching movies or something, where events get logged and I can review them when I am done.

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.
