From now on I will start to work on the preference d-bus interface.
I invite people to give there thoughts before I start implementing the
The preference server is used by applications to store there preferences
values. The usual way to do this is to store a dictionary (key -> value)
where key is a string, and value can have several types. e.g. :
"volume" : 10
"current-track" : "beatles - don't pass me by"
"play-mode" : "shuffle"
The server works with emitters / listeners. Than means, an application
can listen to a particular preference value, and will be notified when
there is a modification to that value from an other application.
For the moment I see something very close to gconf, but with a d-bus
interface. In fact, I know people at openembedded already worked on a
gconf implementation with a d-bus interface. So I still consider just
using it, if it appears to be good enough.
Mickey, you mentioned that gnome people start to deprecate gconf. Can
you tell me more about that ?
This d-bus service is important because all -good behaving-
applications will have to use it.
