So I thought about how to combine KDE with ethic and history. Ethic is a difficult thingy, but history is fine. I really miss a program which shows me a time line with
all important things that happened in history. Honestly I was no keen on history during school, but that has slightly changed nowadays.
So after some hours of hacking I can present a neat, little application, which reads facts about historical events from a XML file and shows them in chronological order.
For every event the file contains:
- the date of the event
- a short description
- a reference to an image
- a link to a source that provides more information (e.g. wikipedia article)
- a category tag
And here comes the obligatory screenshot:
When you click on the link, the wikipedia page for Martin Luther King is opened in the default browser.
