Code on the move

2007-02-27

Today, the code for Strigi moved to a more prominent position in the KDE subversion repository. The code now resides under /trunk/kdesupport/strigi. This is a directory for code on which (parts of) KDE depend(s). The next step will be to make kdelibs use Strigi code for getting at file metadata. A branch in which this work is being done has existed for some weeks at branches/work/kdelibs-strigi/

You can update your Strigi directory with

cd strigi && svn switch svn+ssh://$username@svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/strigi .

or you can check it out with

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/strigi

or

svn co svn+ssh://$username@svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/strigi

If you have a KFilePlugin implemention under your wings, you might want to look into porting it to a Strigi analyzer, so that when KFileMetaInfo will be ported to use Strigi, you will be ready. No hurry just yet, I'll publish porting guidelines on techbase and announce them beforehand.

Further in the future you can expect more changes when the Nepomuk-KDE code with an RDF store is merged. This will be less work however, because the KFilePlugins will not be affected by that change.
