I have started the coding for the Open Build Service Plasma Widgets. I had done research on this project for Google Summer of Code, but my proposal wasnt succcessful. I badly wanted to do the project, and was boosted by the fact that the project had no takers in GSoC. So, i contacted my mentor, and he agreed to mentor me.
The inital step is to write a dataengine in Qt, which will make calls to the API and act as the data interface between the plasmoids and the Build Service. I have started coding the dataengine part. The next phase will be coding the plasmoids, and using the dataengine. QML animations will be an integral part of the project.
I have hosted the project at gitorious:
