Is there any documentation to MATE Applets?

#1 Post by prppedro »

Good afternoon,

Is there any documented API for developing an MATE Applet? I googled, but I couldn't find any guide or solid documentation. Where should I start? Mate-applets on Github are written in C, but I bet that is because they compile alongside the mate-panel core. There seems to be applets made in Python. But I don't know which methods to use or callbacks for the GUI.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Att.,

My PC specs: a bunch of old Intel chips, some memory, a just good enough GPU. I guess it ran Crysis, though UPS didn't quite like it.

In my experience, there's no such thing as Year of Linux...

I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MATE_%28software%29

Might get you started, lots of links to other documentation

I took a glare upon those references. But the whole documentation seems to be pretty incompleting regarding this subject. GNOME 2 had a reasonably good documentation, but it's now dated, as MATE replaced bonoboo with DBUS hooks. Perhaps I can only "reverse engineer" the already existent applets. Unfortunatelly looks like there's no template.
