A List of Refactoring Projects
See Refactoring plan for guidelines on how to refactor.
Attention: Some of these suggestions might not make sense or have better solutions. For example instead of moving some unused function to a different file, you should remove it. Apply the principles of adding unit tests and adding documentation (doxygen comments).
Derive SPStar from SPShape (not SPPolygon), update 'object/README'. Move sp-item-transform.h functions into SPItem.See: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/-/merge_requests/2976 Move sp-item-update-cns.h function into SPItem.Removed fc026649f3667eb840b995ef2f61e829036c20ba Move sp-item-rm-unsatisfied-cns.h function into SPItem.Removed fc026649f3667eb840b995ef2f61e829036c20ba Remove config.h code (or document why it is needed).DOCUMENT/Autogenerated Remove macros.h (or document why it is needed).Removed d6b062f355dd643012f4870727813965cd142978 Remove dependence on Glib::object in ResourceManager(). Simplify ResourceManager... it does only one thing: fix broken links.Replaced 9444a1174912fbe6e5c7380cf6500464b06a6e16
- In SPObject one can write:
setKeyValue( sp_attribute_lookup("x"), "y");
These are redundant and neither is really convenient. SPObject perhaps should have it's own setAttribute() function.
- Rename helper-fns.h with a better discriptive name and move to util(?). MOVE/RENAME
- Remove dependence on object-set.h in files in src/livarot directory.
- Evaluate all the functions in io/sys.h/.cpp. See if we can't use standard glib functions.
- Remove helper/ucompose.hpp and it's use in src/event-log.cpp
- Move functionality of src/line-geometry.h/.cpp into lib2geom or elsewhere.
- Remove deprecated GDK_POINTER_MOTION_HINT_MASK (motion events are compressed since Gdk 3.8).
- Turn DrawAnchor into a proper class (or figure out how to get rid of it all together).
- Clean up constructors and signals in selcue.cpp.
- Remove need to write out and read back in a PNG file with createBitmapImage().
Remove god-awful SPWidget (only used for selection).Yeah!!!
- Move most files in 'src' to subdirectories, add README for each directory with description of contents. (Tav)
- In toolbars, use dataKludge or data or tbl or holder ... but not all four! (Side benefit of C++ify toolbars.) (Alex)
- Remove InkAction class. Normal GTK button actions should be able to handle SVG icons... no need for derived class. (Alex)
- Make data members private in SPI::Base and derived class. Add set() function. Default to SP_STYLE_UNSET in constructor, setting to SP_STYLE_SRC_PROP in set(). (Tav)
- Sort out URL/file handling. See URIs and Filenames.
- Find all the ways we output error/status messages to users (this does not include developer focused error messages that use std::cerr). Pick one and use it everywhere. The goal should be to be able to build Inkscape without a GUI but if the GUI is used, the user will see the messages on the desktop.
- Look at Inkscape::URIReference and derived classes to see if they can't be simplified/templated/etc.
- Make sp_repr_set_svg_double etc. member functions of Inkscape::XML::Node. [sp_repr_set_svg_double() -> setAttributeSvgDouble()].
- Redo Save/Export separating Lossless vs Lossy formats. Create one path for all Exports that share processing so that all options (that make sense) are available to all output formats.
- Refactor toolbase and derived classes. The conversion from C to C++ seems to be only partially done.
- Move the functionality found in SPDesktop to SPCanvas or InkscapeWindow, then kill it as well as View!
- Divide display directory into:
- canvas: GUI related routines, move to ui/
- drawing: Generic rendering routines
- Clean-up Key events. Check to see if get_latin_keyval() can be moved to InkscapeWindow::on_key_press() and removed everywhere else. (Must make sure it doesn't interfere with typing text.)
- Get rid of all Glib::wrap's.
- Git rid of all gobj()'s.
- Make liblcms2 a hard dependency and git rid of 92 #ifdefs.
- Merge old knot code with "new" control-point code.
- C++ify toolbars. (Alex)
- Convert all GtkActions's and Gtk::Action's to Gio::Action's. See GtkAction migration (Alex)
- Add a one or two line description of what each file contains at the top of the file if it is missing. (Everyone)
- Remove livarot, moving any needed functionality into lib2geom or other files.
- Remove desktop dependence on reading and setting style on a document. In particular remove sp_desktop_set_style().
- C++ify SPCanvasItem and all its derived class.
Use Gtk::Object as base so that it can be memory managed by Canvas widget.
Super Large Projects
- Convert verbs to Gio::Action's.
- Convert GUI to XML files. (Long term.)
Invert 'y' coordinate system to match SVG. (Look at previous patch... link?)
