Choqok is a Free, fast, efficient and simple to use micro-blogging client for K Desktop Environment. The name comes from an ancient Persian word and means Sparrow! Currently, Choqok support Twitter.com and Identi.ca micro-blogging services.
13.06.2016 Debian: KDE: Reproducible Builds week 3, Randa Platforms Equals Busy times! Debian: I am a smidgen late on post due to travel, sorry! choqok: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=825322 For this I was able to come up with a patch for kconfig_compiler to encode generated files to utf-8. Review request is here: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/128102/ This has been approved and I will be pushing it as soon as I patch the qt5 frameworks version. kxmlgui: WIP this has been a steep learning curve, according to the notes it was an easy embedded kernel version, that was not the case! After grueling hours of trying to sort out randomness in debug output I finall...13.06.2016 Debian: KDE: Reproducible Builds week 3, Randa Platforms Equals Busy times!

I guess the lead developer could use some help, so if you get a minute or two: check it out and maybe come up with some feedback or even a patch or a piece of translation or a handbook... ;-)Have fun with 0.2 meanwhile.08.02.2009 Juan Carlos Torres (jucato): Tweet? Dent? Twitti.ca! I’ve finally succumbed to social trend and created Identi.ca and Twitter accounts over the weekend, just in time to listen in on the Tokamak2 dents (Identi.ca term for “tweets”). Not hearing anything from FOSDEM though. I’ve been considering micro-blogging for quite some time now, considering how many times I’ve wanted to blog about something very short but didn’t have the time (or energy) to do a full blog post. So I thought that micro-blogging would be better for me. And so far, I think I’m right. I think it’s also almost perfect for Filipino...17.03.2009 Luca Beltrame (einar77): Bilbo Blogger Mtux, of choqok fame, along with another person, has written Bilbo Blogger, a blogging utility for Blogger or any blog that supports Blogger1.0, MetaWeblog and MovableType APIs. It is based on the KDE4 libraries and it includes a WYSIWYG editor, an HTML editor, and a Post Preview function that can even fetch your blog’s CSS to render the entry and see how it looks. It’s not released yet, but for the daring, you can actually try and compile it. You need to check out and install the blogging library (BlboKBlog) first:
git clone git://gitorious.org/bilbokblog/mainline.git bilbokblo...27.03.2009 Orville Bennett (illogic-al): Easy, Peasy, Pudding n' Pie Howdy do all you out there in interland. This one is mostly for A. L. to get her to stop pouting. Today, boys and girls, I'll be speaking about macports. Macports is a ports-like package management thing for OS X. For all my arch linux peeps, it's like the AUR for PKGBUILDs, but you need privileges to check in. It's both easy to use and easy to break. Er, easy to contribute to I meant. These contributions are known as Portfiles; text files defining various things necessary to compile your software of interest. It's so easy to use I can show you how to make your own Portfile in five easy steps...27.05.2009 Jos Poortvliet: a week with KDE on Windows I thought it's time for a little update on my experience with my new Vaio Laptop. Running Vista and KDE 4.2.3. First about the hardware. It's serously good. Right now I'm typing with the brightness on it's lowest level, yet it's almost too bright. I've even used it in the full sun already, and if the black casing wouldn't have gotten so hot with the sun burning on it I might have stayed longer ;-)Secondly, I'm typing in the dark. So I can't see the keyboard, yet I didn't make any mistakes with that smiley above. Maybe I'm a great touchtypist, or easily impressed - but I'd rather think this key...02.05.2010 Jos Poortvliet: A quick one on Being Free Just finished editing a dot story on Choqok (will go live sometime next week). Some of you might have noticed the initiative by its main developer Mehrdad Momeny to speed up development by soliciting monetary input. This will allow him to spend more time on making Choqok rock, but also give users a tangible way of influencing development priorities. This can increase commitment from the users, developers and the community - while bringing real benefits (in terms of code).The KOffice developers recently did a similar thing, calling upon individual sponsors to help make Krita better. Instead of ...28.03.2010 Mehrdad Momeny (mtux): An idea to speed up Choqok development As you heard before, I’m doing military service and it’s some kind of non-profit job right now :-/ Recently I’ve noticed that i have to do some jobs to earn money. But this way will take most of my free time, and there couldn’t be time to do My favorite job, i.e. working on Choqok and Blogilo. Some days ago, An idea came in my mind, I discussed with some close friends about if this idea could work, and now I want to talk with you about it. The idea is some kind of sponsoring Choqok development by it’s users: There are so many features we can implement! from new mi...25.07.2010 Andreas Demmer (ademmer): Identi.ca account For everyone that only knows my Twitter account @ademmer: I use to blog with the same account name on the free microblogging service Identi.ca, but here solely in English and only about Linux/KDE related topics. Follow me and end the mess of this account having only three followers until now! Don’t be afraid having to install new software: Most Twitter-Clients can already deal with Identi.ca. KDE Users may use the excellent Choqok for example!
