[sugar] Clipping API
Mon Apr 7 13:30:41 EDT 2008
in a very recent posting, Eben has mentioned the need for more rich
descriptions of clippings in the Sugar shell.
More concretely, he has asked (or so I understood) for activities to
be able to better characterize the clippings they put into the
clipboard. This would be accomplished by providing a title, creator,
icon and preview along with the clipping data.
I see two ways of doing this:
- Activities that wish to provide this extra data use a D-Bus API
instead of the traditional X selection protocol.
- Activities provide this data in new X selection targets like
_SUGAR_CLIPPING_TITLE, _SUGAR_CLIPPING_CREATOR, etc.
Any better possibility?
