Description:

WorKflow -- Automates the Desktop

First off, WARNING: This ist pre-alpha software, which can be used to destroy your personal data. Do not use it with original files. Do *NEVER* run it as root.

This software allows to automate time-consuming tasks across the KDE desktop. This is accomplished by breaking down tasks into single steps, called commands. Each command can take input data from the previous command and can output data to the next command, while optionally providing a user-interface to let the user customize its parameters (see screenshots).

Currently, not a lot of commands are implemented. However, several tasks can be automated already. Examples are:

- Get Images, Scale them down, Rotate them selectively and Move them to a certain place (even some online resource, like an FTP server).
- Select a folder, Find all files inside the folder ending in ~ and Delete them.
- Select a folder, Find all files ending in .txt, Read the files and Count the number of lines.

It is also possible to remote-control KDE applications. There is already an addon-package with commands to control the Kate editor, as well as a Kate-plugin to integrate the WorKflow application (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=43625). Please let me know which other KDE applications you want to see automated.

In future versions, I plan to provide many more commands. However, I'd like to get feedback on what your day-to-day workflows on your KDE desktop are, that you would like to see automated. This way, most needed commands will be provided first.

I'd also love to get feedback on the application itself, and, if you're a developer, on the API provided by the WorKflow libraries.

I use KDE session management. If WorKflow is running when I logout, WorKflow crashes. The backtrace is at

there's a symbolic link missing. I will solve the problem for the next release, but for now, you can cd into src/ui/widgets and make a symbolic link called "workflow" to ".":

ln -sf . workflow

sorry for the inconvenience

I haven't tried it yet, but I can already imagine all the things you can do with it!

Hi,

just wanted to say that I was looking definitely for this. It would be a really nice feature for KDE!

Thanks for your interest!

Right now (i.e. the last 2 weeks) there has been no activity. But before that, I managed to port the app almost completely to KDE4. That means there will probably no further release for KDE3. This is due to technical limitations of KDE3 libs and apps, for which there's a realistic chance to resolve them before KDE4 is out.

But even though it is alpha software, it's quite usable for batch image manipulation. I use it on a semi-daily basis.

Nice, I can wait for a KDE 4 release :)

OTOH, will it be - or it is? - possible to write the scripts in bash, or other scripting languages?
I mean, I could write 90% of all - my - needed workflow-steps in bash, but 0% in c :)

I just searched for worKflow again (I lost touch since I got more proficient in the shell - but I rather prefer GUI tools, more exactly: I want there to be GUI tools, so I can show others to use their computer more efficiently without having to force them into the shell), and I still really dig the idea, so I'd also like to know how you got on with your KDE 4 port.

4.4 is on the horizon, and it would be nice to see worKflow in KDE 4 again.

I think that it has the potential to be a big enabler for normal users, and so it would be a great addition to KDE.

You should continue the work, your application looks promising.

Is there a gentoo ebuild?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
