Lovin’ it!

Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you…. πŸ˜€

Yeah, that has been happening to me since last week. I have had dreams of widgets flying here and there. Well, this is psychological! Though for the time I was in college, we were like we would do it, but deep inside I got tensed since we were stuck at the same point for consecutive 4 days.

Then I took on reading the basic UI part from the book and I am glad I did that. After reading very first few chapters and trying a few tutorials, I got more confidence. I got myself acquainted with the things how they exactly were working. Books are always awesome. And yes, in two days July 9 and 10, we successfully implemented the very basic features in the UI. πŸ˜€ These included:

  1. Adding graphics view, which serves as the drawing area for entities
  2. Painting different entities which had static dimensions
  3. Painting entities on mouse clicks by the user in graphics view
  4. Zooming and panning of the graphics view

Though it brought in so much struggle, we were elated on accomplishing the same. Time for correcting a few things, including the dimensions of drawing area and the bounding rectangles particularly. Working on the same! Also had taste of gtk. I did not use IDE and working in vim gave me an innate buddy-buddy feeling (since been on IDE lately).

I am also trying to improve my time management. Studied Permutations and Combinations too today morning.

This UI part is just so awesome! I look at UI design of everything around me. I am lovin’ it. πŸ™‚
