Introducing Tome

2010/03/22

I have finally decided upon a name for the aforementioned documentation viewer for Linux that I previewed yesterday:

Tome

The rationale being that an existing Linux distro is  Tome of knowledge concerning system documentation, programming documentation etc I have yet to commit the code as I have a very busy schedule, a friend of mine is playing in a bar tonight, in less than an hour in fact, with a 20 minute bike ride and food still to do… However, I am still needing to do a lot but I will upload the code tomorrow night, hopefully i can get my head around  launchpad and “proper development procedures” by then. Of note it would be nice  to get some second opinions/help —first proper app you see— for:

  • Artwork — i can barely draw a circle in Inkscape 😉
  • Internationalisation
  • Code tidying
  • Parsing the “theList.txt”
  • Removing redundant entries

If you want to help drop us a line. I have created a launchpad project and my details should be there and will update it tomorrow night after work!

Also thanks to those behind: Quickly and Acire, I wouldn’t have been able to do something so fast so quickly.

Oh and yeah, here is the obligatory screen shot:
