Falkon: Development Update, Jan 2023

1 Feb, 2023 - 3 minutes
Weird news from development of Falkon web browser. My little break I took a break for a few weeks (turned out to be a bit longer) to get a different look at the features I am working at. (Good excuse, right?) Development Site Settings I am struggling with the UI design and the UI programming itself. I am not that skilled with Qt and its way of doing these things so it will take a bit before I gain the required skills and experience to continue working on it in earnest.

Weird news from development of Falkon web browser. Development: Site Settings At the start of the month I did something and I already forgot what it was (very sad) and than I took a “short” break for a week which turned out ot be for a whole month due to other reasons. Extensions During this break I worked on two QML extensions Cookies.txt and Readability. The Cookies.txt is in a way me trying to understand how to work with cookies from within QML extension in order to write a proper tutorial for it.

Disabling sound on KDE/Qt notifications / alerts with ALSA

2 Nov, 2022 - 2 minutes
I am using ALSA for my system sound and I am trying to keep away from PulseAudio and PipeWire things. I do not like them that. I know they provide a way to disable the system sound, just open PavuControl and mute the “System Sounds” channel and done. For ALSA I did not manage to find such a simple way to do it. I also did not find a way to disable it in KDE or Qt configuration files (or I did not search hard enough).

Rewrite of Falkon plugin Readability to QML

22 Oct, 2022 - 5 minutes
This rewrite was a challenge as well as a good test subject for Falkon QMl API. I had to work around few pitfalls to make it work. Click on button always opens popup Desired or not the popup will always open. I used it to write there sone informative message, but it is unsued so far. In the future it an be used a bit more to dislay the debug message or a feedback from the script if the conversion fails.

Introducing a Falkon extension Cookies.txt

10 Oct, 2022 - 3 minutes
This weekend I decided to test if it is possible to create a Cookies.txt style extensions for Falkon by using QML API. This work is partially based on Firefox and Chrome extensions. The GUI is shamelessly copied from the Firefox extension but I had a little trouble porting it to QML since I have still long way to go with this language. I like the GUI being a simple one and to the point.
