Description Bastien Nocera 2007-01-05 11:20:43 UTC
Using leaftag:
Comment 1 John Stowers 2007-01-06 03:40:47 UTC
Has leaftag been obsoleted by tracker?
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-01-06 14:36:09 UTC
I don't think so.
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-02 15:21:22 UTC
Well, leaftag is unmaintained (ie. in the freezer), and it would be better to use search engine APIs directly.

Tracker tagbar into the search sidebar

Use the tracker-tag-bar (libtracker-gtk) to manage tags, it's just a sample

Added a tag cloud to the video search plugin

1.- it uses the marko anastasov tracker tag widget (which is still no included in libtracker-gtk as far i know)
2.- have to add a new dependency with goocanvas (because of including marko's widget directly)
Comment 7 Bastien Nocera 2007-11-30 02:56:36 UTC
Quite a few warnings from the patch:
totem-tracker-widget.c: In function 'tracker_keywords_get_list_cb':
totem-tracker-widget.c:241: warning: comparison between signed and unsigned
totem-tracker-widget.c: In function 'init_tag_cloud':
totem-tracker-widget.c:354: warning: passing argument 3 of 'tracker_keywords_get_list_async' from incompatible pointer type
totem-tracker-widget.c: In function 'totem_tracker_widget_init':
totem-tracker-widget.c:418: warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type
totem-tracker-widget.c:419: warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type
totem-tracker-widget.c:420: warning: passing argument 2 of 'gtk_container_add' from incompatible pointer type
totem-tracker-widget.c:433: warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type

There also doesn't seem to be any way to add new tags. Isn't TrackerTagBar (included in tracker-gtk) good enough? (From my tests, it needs quite a bit of loving).

It would be nicer to have the tagging be done as a separate plugin (rather, as a separate sidebar, it can be the same plugin), as I'd like users to be able to tag the currently opened file. Maybe a vertical version of TrackerTagBar would be better.

With the way Totem has been redesigned, is this still something we want? How would it appear?
