Could you push the rebase to your github repo?
Thats already done. It is not the newest master I rebased to, but should be trival to do it again
Also would you consider bullet pointing what would need to be done to get it working on Qt5?
Hm thats quite a lot and takes time, so I would prever to do this only if someone is willing to work on this.
Hey @ickby I created a wiki page about this idea: Ickbys_Frameless_UI
I was hoping that if you could bulletpoint it that it might inspire someone to make it happen. I know it takes some time... but it may pay off. Thoughts?

Good work, but I prefer the current interface, I don't like to "have windows and things over my workspace". :cry:
It should be optional.

@ickby in your layout branch there are a few places in the code that reference paths on you local machine, for example:
In src/Gui/DynamicInterfaceManager.cpp

Code: Select all

    //create the component and set the view proxy
    QDeclarativeComponent* component = new QDeclarativeComponent(m_view->engine(), 
                                    QString::fromAscii("/home/stefan/Projects/FreeCAD_sf_master/src/Gui/Qml/InterfaceProxyItem.qml"));
    QDeclarativeItem* item = qobject_cast<QDeclarativeItem*>(component->create());
we see /home/stefan/Projects/FreeCAD_sf_master/src/Gui/Qml/InterfaceProxyItem.qml

What does that need to change to to run correctly on any one else's system ?

The fast way is to change it to the local path on your system. Otherwise, I'm not entirely sure how to handle those extra files, maybe like python files anf copy them to the freecad dirs Düring compilation... But it would be more involved to implement this correctly. I never did it as for a proof of concept this was enough.

Anyway, I don't think the code would compile anymore.

I'm bumping this thread out of the hope that with all the influx of traffic to the site, that someone or some organization will take a stab at making this proof of concept a real thing.

Maybe a more detailed list of tasks to be implemented could be made so that this can be implemented progresively.

@ickby will only do this if there is a serious dev that wants to implement this.

Yes, I can provide some guiding for anyone who wants to tackle this. But first I want to see a commitment, than I put in work.

by the way, the code is to be found here: https://github.com/ickby/FreeCAD_sf_mas ... its/layout
