I’ve just released Dianara v0.4, as the first pump.io-based version.
The program is far (very far) from being usable, but I wanted to put a non-development version out there. But still, consider it a demo version.
You can get the code from Qt-apps.org: http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Dianara?content=148103
Keep in mind that a lot of the buttons and other widgets are placeholders with no real use at the moment.
What you can do is configure your account, authorize the program to access your account, see the last 20 posts in your timeline, post text-only messages (with some HTML formatting), and see the list of people you follow.

So Dianara is being turned into a pump.io client. Current version in gitorious can now post (with some text formatting), see the last 20 posts in your timeline (with number of comments, likes and shares, but not the comments themselves), and list the people you follow (not your followers, yet).
First step is to configure the account. The process is still a little rough, but it should be pretty straightforward:
- Enter your pump address (email@example.com), push the “Get Verifier” button.
- Your web browser opens up with the right address for your pump server, asking for authorization (you might need to log in first).
- After you authorize Dianara, you get a “token”, and a “Verification code“. Copy that verification code and paste it in Dianara’s account configuration window.
- Click on “Authorize Application“. A text should appear indicating that Dianara is authorized to access your data.
- Click “Save Details“.
Now your timeline should appear and you should be able to post.
Hopefully Dianara will be a semi-capable client once identi.ca makes the switch to the pump.io system on June 1st.

Hello there! Since the blog looks a little dead, here’s a quick post!
I haven’t done much coding lately, so not much to blog about. The development versions of some of my programs have had some minor updates, but not enough for a release. I’ve also adapted some of them to be Qt5-compatible.
On a side note, sometimes I get visits from people looking for information on why Auralquiz doesn’t work for them. Well, all I can say for now is: use the Phonon-VLC backend. Phonon-Xine worked great with it, but was (and for the moment, still is) deprecated, and Phonon-Gstreamer has some problems with it, so… Phonon-VLC is the one that works for now. Sorry for the trouble.

Just a quick update to say two things:
1.- If you try Dianara, the Diaspora App, in its 0.2 version from nonGNU or Qt-apps, it won’t get any posts in the timeline. Some stuff has been changed in Diaspora, so you’ll need to test the development version of Dianara directly from Git.
2.- If you have problems running Auralquiz, my music guessing game (if it doesn’t play sound), check if you’re using Phonon-backend-gstreamer in your Phonon configuration. If so, try using Phonon-backend-vlc.
Auralquiz does not work right with the Gstreamer backend at this point, I don’t know yet if it’s some regression in the latest Phonon-gstreamer or a problem in the way Auralquiz handles things. Switching to the vlc-backend should help. Or the xine-backend, if you still can.
