Description:

a new way of storing ideas, lessons and lots of other stuffs based on a sql-based database and fully integrated to your everyday used interface. it behaves like a local or a distant google search engine for your personal data.

!!! new !!! I've just added a combobox to let you choose which sql driver who wish to use (every information on what driver to use for what database is explained on Trolltech's webpage about Qt sql drivers)... then you yet can use postgresql or sqllite (if you have qt3.3)

mail me or write your comments and/or ideas in the forum below ;-)


IMPORTANT : in order to make that software work, you'll need the qt driver for an sql database installed on your computer and of course the database installed on the host computer for the database. You'll also need an account on that sql server and a database created (all you need to do so in brightly explained in the mysql manual on http://www.mysql.com)... after install you also should to reinitialize your sidebar options (in the "add" section of the sidebar's tool menu)

First: the name is Reiser4, not ReiserFS4 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reiser4)
Second: Reiser4 is ready, read http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/3674

If you like Daneel you might like these wishes:
-Add custom 'features' to files, and allow me to sort by feature with the mouse (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66908)
-Virtual folders for konqueror (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79715)

Hi!

This tool sounds great - unfortunately it doesn't show up in konqueror. Even after reboot & reload... compilation & installation suceeded normally.

Usind KDE 3.3 .... any suggestions?

Hi,

your app would be great but why do you use MySQL?
MySQL is overkill for such a small db and I think many people (like me) don't want to have a full dbms installed on their desktop pc.

You should use SQLite http://www.sqlite.org or similar file-databases for such a program.

Greets,
HabIB

In fact I had a MySQL on my computer that's the reason why I chose it at first but a QTSql driver should also exists for sqllite so I'll make a new version in which you could choose which DBapp you wish to use (PostGreSQL, IBM DB2, SQL Lite or any other)... I'll try to release it today or tomorrow so that you can use it with your prefered app ;-)

I can't download the final release, the download link takes me to the screenshot.

Maybe a mistake while uploading the files?

Sorry, it should work by now... it's 550KBytes (due to autotools's fat) so of course upload failed (limited to 500KBytes) and I didn't see it... my apologies...

You might want to delete the autom4te.cache, it makes the archive somewhat on the large side, and it's only relevant to your machine :)

Also, I'm wondering how do I actually go about using this? It's not an application, I know, but it also doesn't show up in the Add new submenu in the Konqueror sidebar config menu... I really look forward to using this, but I just can't seem to figure it out ;) I looked at your .desktop file, and it has a Type=Link clause, is that right?

you should reload your sidebar configuration to show it up... it's in the "new" submenu of the "tools" menu :-)

...reiser4 or are you setting a dbase on top of the filesystem?

Still looks like it's inspired from WinFX, Apple Spotlight or gnome Storage (everybody's doing today what BeOS did ten years ago), but a good idea anyway. May I suggest that you implement it as a KPart, to make it modular and therefore usable everywhere.

This is a great idea, but I have a question. Are you planning to integrate this with any other applications? For example with kontact or konqueror, or even maybe a Documents directory in a users home dir? This would be so that this could be used for searching and cataloging all of those things in a single application. I'm thinking, I guess, of some features like the Gnome Dashboard is planning to implement.

It's currently integrated to konqueror as a sidebar option. So you can use it as you wish... you can search by specifying or not the category in which your informations is stored. Then you can use it to store CDs, books, quotes, etc... even files since you can add links (file://, smb://, http://, ftp://, fish:// or any other konqueror understands).
