Ubuntu – Working with quickly, are there any gtk.Builder code sketching tools that integrate



quickly create ubuntu-application testing
quickly design
#makes changes
#insert some other command here that would be roughly equivalent to 'quickly sketch'
quickly edit
#to populate the sketched functions

Willing to accept other gtk.Builder solutions that work if they're demonstrated/screenshots with a quickly generated ui/xml pair.

In this context what I mean by code sketching and the desired effect would be quickly sketch results in empty functions being created in the appropriate files instead of capturing stderr on quickly run and adding them, then populating them.

A simple example, add a button in quickly design. It will still launch with quickly run as you expect. Something I miss from wxglade is the code-sketching for new buttons/etc.

Might be more of a glade/gtk.Builder question than a quickly question.

In response to the answer, I opened a whishlist bug here.

I also started working on a project I'm calling simply. The first bits of code are here. It includes simple code-sketching of callbacks.

  • That might be nice. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement either, since the handlers are defined in the ui-file. I don't know of any tools that does it now. I don't think it could be done in the GUI designer, since it's language independent. But adding a 'sketch' command to Quickly should be possible. If you add a wishlist bug to Quickly, perhaps someone can get around to it? I might want to have that myself.
