My apps using Qt/QML WebView on Sailfish OS (ocNews, Chennzeihhan and Markat) have issues with diplaying websites in the integrated app webview (SilicaWebView) on OS version 1.1.1.27 (Vaarainjärvi). Opening URLs there do not load the website, but only showing a white screen. Nothing crashes, there is only no content loaded and displayed. There is a quite easy workaround for this issue. All you need is a file manager app that can display hidden files and folders.

Markat 0.5.0 MyEbay

Markat 0.5.0 MyEbay

Markat version 0.5.0 is available in the Jolla Store since this morning. This version is the first release that features a integration into your eBay account by authenticating Markat to use your account. After you authenticated Markat you are able to watch your buyer lists in Markat and watched items are synchronized to your eBay account. There is still no support for direct buying/bidding in Markat, but I am working on it. Because Markat currently only supports basic buyer actions like watching items and opening them in the web browser, the MyEbay page in Markat shows only the lists that belong to buying stuff on eBay.

ocNews SailfishOS 1.9.0 Item List Excerpts

Article excerpts

It took a bit longer as I thought, but now I finished the code cleanup and the work of improving the data models. So, ocNews, the ownCloud News App client for Jolla’s Sailfish OS and MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan (Nokia N9), brings mostly non visual improvements. The new data models are not reloading completely anymore after each operation that changes the underlying data. Sorting and filtering is now done through filter proxies, what also does not reload the complete data and makes some animation on filtering possible. Engine code base was cleaned up and the connections between the API parts are better, so that not complete classes need to be loaded into others, only to perform minimal stuff. On client side, the connections between daemon and client are now in the C++ part and not anymore in the QML code.

Framrekkari IconOne day after Framrekkari was initially released to Jolla store on Sailfish OS powered devices, the first major update is released and available at the same place. Framrekkari 1.1.0 completes the translation work flow by implementing the ability to mark strings as reviewed or not reviewed. Marking items as reviewed/not reviewed is possible directly on the translation page as well as int the string list (by context menu/press and hold). Because of the limitations in the Transifex API you have again to know by yourself if your user account has access granted to these operation on the chosen project.

Then there is most probably a way for you to help. Many free software projects are using platforms like Transifex to translate their content into different languages. With Framrekkari, a client for these services, that currently supports the Transifex API, it is now possible for you to translate everywhere on your Sailfish OS powered device.

Markat Icon

Today Markat version 0.2.0 was released to Jolla Store. This intermediate release brings some new features and UI improvements.

Most prominent new feature is the support for item variations/options, like different colors and sizes.

Auction items in search result lists are now automatically updated every 6 – 20 seconds. This behaviour can be switched off in the settings, as you can now also do with automatic updates in item view.

To make searches more comfortable it is now possible to store searches (at least their parameters) locally for future use.

I am planning to release version 0.3.0 next week with complete integration of shopping and finding API (still no in app orders and bid placement, that is trading API). There will also be more UI improvements.
