Session

Build Your Own Chandler Parcel
Ted Leung, Senior Engineer, OSAF

Track: Python
Date: Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: E142

Chandler is a personal information manager written in Python. It is designed to be extended via self contained units of functionality called parcels. All of the end user PIM functionality in Chandler is implemented using parcels, so that "built in" application functionality and "third party" application functionality are on the same footing.

In this session, Leung outlines the steps needed to build a simple parcel for Chandler. Some examples parcels are RSS readers, del.icio.us clients, and Flickr clients, specifically:

- How to create a new Kind (data type) in Chandler
- How to provide a custom detaiil view for the new Kind
- How to extend Chandler with custom menus
- How to add a collection of items to Chandler's sidebar
- How to use the wakeupcaller system to perform tasks on a periodic basis,/p>
