|BMS - The Bookmark Synchronizer|
Bookmark Synchronizer is a graphical tool for reorganizing your
bookmarks from various browsers. On Linux, there are plenty of good
browsers around, which are being continuously developed. So it is
understandable, that users like me change their favourite browsers
frequently. To do this, you also have to find a way to share the
bookmarks. When I started to develop BMS, I have not found any
Looking on freshmeat, I just
found a nifty perl script for the job, which accidentally had the same
name as my binary: bmsync.
I guess it's worth a look.
I tried to make it as simple as possibe, but a few explanations
would be helpful though:
Download BMS from its Sourceforge download site.
Actually, after finding bmsync,
I thought that BMS is only "much ado for nothing". But anyway, it was a
great practice for me beginning programming GTK--, and learning how to create
plugins. Besides, BMS is designed to be easy portable for other GUI
library, working code and interface are very well separated. Maybe this
results in complicated coding (for example, the bookmark tree is always
stored twice: in a GTK TreeStore, and in the "normal" BMS class
BMS is a pure C++ application using libxml (libxml++ was very
undocumented and hard to use when the project was started), the GUI is
created using Glade.
Additionally, maybe you could benefit from the class
I created for BMS. It is a generic handler class for using M$-style
.ini files (they hopefully won't get patented though...), see the source
for more info - it should be self-explanatory.
BMS is released under the GPL license.
