I'm an Inkscape contributor since March 2008, and my Gitlab username is 'tweenk'. Some things I've done so far:

  • Fixed the clipboard to use the system-wide clipboard instead of a bunch of variables
  • Refactored preference handling
  • Heavily cleaned up and simplified the build system
  • Made all icons themable and created a big mess in the process :)
  • Made bitmap images automatically embedded where suitable
  • Substantially improved the Windows port by (among others) updating and rebuilding the devlibs
  • Worked on GSoC2009 Node Tool Rewrite
  • Worked on GSoC2010 Cairo rendering
  • Wrote tutorials for libsigc++, shared pointers and updated the tutorial for preferences

I have a lot of ideas for refactoring and generally making Inkscape easier to work with from the developer perspective.


Building on OSX:

cmake .. -DICONV_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/opt/local/include -DICONV_LIBRARIES:FILEPATH=/opt/local/lib/libiconv.dylib -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(pwd)/../inst
