Now that i've got to know most of Blackbox, i want to patch / fix some stuff myself. That's why i'm trying to set up a good development environment. So i would like to ask what you guys are using for development and whether i would be allowed to create some pull requests on your GItHub project
Basically i usually prefer opensource development environments. I was thinking about maybe using Eclipse and Mingw or maybe Code::Blocks as IDE.
What i would like to investigate / fix is:
- Make CPU status for BBInterface work with dualcores / quadcores (or at least debug/fix the existing code for this)
- Add scrolling title to Winamp track display in BBInterface (like it is already implemented for iTunes)
- Maybe add desktop margin function for other screens than primary screen
- add the possibility for creating and maintaining more than one menu (or maybe you can tell me how to do this already now)
As i'm a software developer at day time already i'm pretty sure that i won't be able to work on this on a regulary basis ... so all of those goals are probably something for the long run. Still i would love to see some of this stuff happen and i'm pretty confident that my C/C++ skills should be enough to make this happen
I'm open for suggestions about a compiler / IDE and would love to hear what you are using and how you did set everything up.
Thanks in advance for all of your efforts, it's really appreciated!
