Google’s Code-in — the little brother of Summer of Code — started a few days ago. I added a small Marble task, creating alternative artwork for the compass and the cross hair info boxes, to see how it goes. It didn’t take long for a student to show up and finish the task. With the svgs at hand I implemented a configuration dialog for the compass plugin (which is easy since Marble’s plugins are designed to have configuration dialogs) to switch between different compass themes. So here’s your work from earlier today, professorpi:
The code itself will remain in a local git branch for now until 4.6 is branched off.
Next piece in the puzzle is implementing the same configuration dialog for the cross hairs. I wonder whether I shouldn’t make that another Code-in task. The implementation of the compass plugin should provide a good start.
