Hello KDE

Hello everyone, myself Bhavisha Dhruve. I am a graduate in Bachelors of Commerce and Computer Application and pursuing A Levels in Computer Application. Currently i am a part of Google Summer of Code (GSOC) 2016, and the project i am working for is “Devising the Plasma Mobile Emulator” with the help of KDE organization.

Plasma Mobile Emulator will be the solution for developing, testing and accessing plasma mobile system without having to install on real phone.
This project takes in the following:

  • Docker Container with plasma mobile.
  • Different Resolution.
  • Translation of click to touch events.
  • Screenshots and Screen Recording (Future Development).

With the guidance of my mentor Bhushan Shah in these 4 weeks i have been able to create Docker container with kwin_wayland running inside. Currently working on Extending fakeinput interface in kwayland for touch events and the autotests for these added functionalities is in progress and once done it will allow to translate and emulate click events into touch events, as soon as it is done i will update it.

Working with KDE is a gratified experience and a place where everyday i learn something amazing. Thanks to my mentor Bhushan Shah and the plasma-devel team for always being there and helping me out when in need. And a big thank you to Google for giving us such opportunities and letting me to be a part of this 2016 GSOC.

And as it is very well said :“It’s Never Early, Never Late. It takes a little Patience and Faith but it’s worth to wait.” 🙂

Happy Weekend:)
