I have been going through the codes of gnucash. There are a few things I
would like to clear.
I didn't quite get the difference between Menu only Plugins and Content
Plugins, the difference in functionality between the two. I looked into
gnc-plugin-bi_import.c source code under plugins but it still didn't answer
I am currently going through the src/optional/gtkmm. I also looked into the
gnucash report renderer using webkit (src/html/gnc-html-webkit.c) and I have
a small doubt regarding implementation of my proposal using webkit. Will it
Last, I would like to know, if I have to come to a conclusion about which
technology I am going to use before the application deadline (April 8). I
feel there won't be enough time by then to actually come to a conclusion
about the implementation to be used. I intend to study thoroughly and
develop some test plugins using both gtk widgets and webkit window before I
can actually come to a conclusion.
