Kopete supports Adium styles

Hello !

I wanted to show you some screenshots of what Michaël recently added to Kopete : Kopete now supports the Adium styles (all styles I tested where quite perfectly rendered by Kopete !)

Chatwindow example :

The style configuration panel. On the left, you select the style, on the right, the preview and at the bottom, some variants of the style. Variants are some different color sets for the same style.

Another great advantage of this kind of style is that it's very quick to be rendered (it uses XHTML and CSS instead of XSLT parsing)

To try it, you have to check Kopete 0.12 branch in branches/work/kopete.

Thanks Michaël :-)

btw, Happy new year!

  • Wow, that sounds cool :) I'd really like to try it out! Could you give a small step-by-step instruction on how to build kopete from svn? I found this, but that didn't help me much. Thanks!
