LinuxProgramming: GNOME: PonG 0.11

Apr 12, 2001, 23:07 (2 Talkback[s])

"PonG is a library and a GUI tool for creating preference dialogs with a minimum of coding. The description of the gconf keys and widgets are written in an XML file that is read at runtime and the dialog is created and gconf magic is done. All you have to do on your side is listen for gconf changes. It also allows the preference dialogs to be run from a different program and actually even from the command line. It would also allow a registry editor to run the correct preference dialog for some keys. It also allows automatic creation of GConf schema files, so you can do all your preference work with a GUI tool."

"The interface should be mostly stable though I broke it in this release for the translation changes. It now uses exclusively xml-i18n-tools to do translations. You can check the "grapevine" module on GNOME CVS for an example setup. I wish to have more docs on how to set this up soon."

"I'll be getting close to a 1.0 release as well, as I want it out very soon (original plan was around GNOME 1.4 time and I missed that, so now it's within a month or so I'd say)"
