Developing plugins for Krita
Speaker: Cyrille Berger
The goal of the event is to show gives the general ideas on how to extend Krita, wether it is a new filter, or tool, or support for a new file format.
Krita, the drawing and image editing application from KOffice, is easily extensible through plugins. In fact, nearly, everything in Krita is extensible : tools, filters, export/import, painting operation, convoluting operation, user interface elements, color spaces... In this presentation, I would like to show how easy it is to extend Krita, starting by a general presentation on how all those components interacts which other, for instance, define exactly what is a painting operation, and also how should a plugin writer takes advantage of Krita's API to write color spaces independent filters. And then, in a second part, show and details a practical example.
