Gnome Panel Clock and Calendar to use Thunderbird + Lightning

Registered by komputes on 2008-06-06

The proposed blueprint is a starting point for like-minded developers to communicate and create a clock/calendar applet for gnome-panel (Gnome and Ubuntu) to be controlled by Lightning calendar instead of Evolution. As discussed, there are two possible ways of doing this:

-Use the current clock applet and link it to System > Preferences > Preferred Applications (Internet Tab, Mail Reader). This is the preferred method since it is transparent to the user. They chose their mail/calendar client and the rest is done in the back end.

-Develop an entirely new panel from scratch for Thunderbird.

Currently looking for developers to act as Assignee, Drafter and Approver for this project. Developers with experienced developing for mozilla and gnome would be amazing for these position. Please contact me on irc (freenode) if interested in this project.

Whiteboard

Nothing new needs to be implemented. Just Thunderbird needs to use Evolution Data Server on Linux. Only KDE folks would doubt this :] . --Livio

In the forums the following Thunderbird extension is hinted: Evolution Mirror: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/9656 which seems to be a good start in accomplishing what is desired in this blueprint. -- Maarten Brouwers

Is it possible to get a toy example such that when we double click on a date in the calendar, a random program pops up? --Soroosh
