What time is it?
As I prefer small and fast window managers, not so long time ago I
started to use fluxbox. But, also, I like to see the current time. In fuxbox
there's a small digital clock on the bar, but I didn't like it. Much more
what I like is a simple xclock, but what all those windows are for?
The convention of dockapp is the best (in my opinion) for such a
clock. So, as I thought, I intended to write myself a small, fast and
nice-looking dockapp with a clock.
A short time after a new idea came to me: why not use this clock for
the alarm-purpose? It's sometimes usefull and maybe it won't be to many work
The next idea was a counting-down clock. When I have to wait f.e. 30
minutes for something, isn't it the easiest way to click on my on-screen
clock and set 30-minutes alarm?
I have called this project dockclock. It's allready on sourceforge, on CVS.
And a tarball of releases will be putted there. WHen the project would be a
little closer to the 1.0 version, I will also make a binary packages for
Debian, Slackware and RedHat distributions.
This page will be used to place some news about this project, some
screenshots and such a things. Cause the program is not very big and
complex, don't expect this page to be such ;-)
If you have any sugestions, feel free to post me an email email@example.com.
here you can now download every-night from CVS generated tarballs. But -
remamber - they are not releases, use them on your own risk.
09-26-2002: first, initial release is made, you can get it on sourceforge.
It's 0.1, the mega-unstable one, without many features. Just for the tests.
09-24-2002: dockclock is now on CVS, but only in CVS.
09-23-2002: First lines of code appear.
