Re: [Granite] PopOvers


Of course, it would be better, but if you don't want to commit anything in the branch, we can't work together, that's the basis of open source community development. Even if it is not finished, if it can compile, you can push it. Otherwise, it is very hard for me to work with you...

I think it would be best to wait until I finish my version, and then
we can combine the best from both. Just a suggestion.

I started implementing the PopOvers in granite. Here are some screenshots:
Midori: http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1317488418.png (needs a patched midori, but it also needs the gtk3 patch which is not in git yet)
Ergo: http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1317927299.png (lp:~xapantu/ergo/popover)

For technical details, it uses a composited window to draw the shadow (yeah, it would be better if the window manager could handle this, but unfortunately I don't know any wm which does) and subclass Gtk.Dialog.

I would like to check that the current API is usable everywhere before merging anything, so, if you could test in your apps if it works and/or send me an application which would need a popover, it would be a good thing.

The code is at lp:~elementary-pantheon/granite/popovers
