Partnerspace is still a thing?

It does work, although there are rumours that it will break in the near future.

I have just found it in the new documentation Merge pull request #105 from sailfishos/partnerspace · sailfishos/docs.sailfishos.org@8333c85 · GitHub

Just assumed it got abandoned like the TOH concept, as last time I heard of both was during Jolla C/aquafish launch

@nephros super could you create a real patch in web cataloge please? I am afraid to change the file directly. I activate the partner spaces with shellex.
on:
dconf write /desktop/lipstick-jolla-home/partnerspace/applications "['/usr/share/applications/jolla-calendar.desktop', '/usr/share/applications/jolla-gallery.desktop','/usr/share/applications/harbour-received.desktop','/usr/share/applications/harbour-talefish.desktop']"
off:
dconf write /desktop/lipstick-jolla-home/partnerspace/applications "['']"

Sie wünschen, wir spielen!

Thank you it works perfekt. I ask me if it’s possible to make an option in settings for this nice feature in SFOS 4.5 like this.

This Partnerspace thing is AMAZING. The application added to it autostarts on boot, it gets automatically restarted if killed or crashed, it is a PERFECT place for an app that one needs to have running all the time. It doesn’t take space on the switcher screen, it can’t be accidentally / unintentionally closed, etc., and it is always accessible with a simple swipe. I use it now for my application to filter/reject unwanted calls.

Jolla, PLEASE, do not ever remove it. Even if it is of little use as what it originally was meant to be (i.e. space to be used by apps of your partners), just rename it to whatever else but keep it there. It’s one of the best features of this OS.

Thanks for highlighting this @sanginteret, and also for the patch @nephros :slight_smile:

I’ve added an internal issue and have tagged it as “tracked”. I’ll do my best to let you know what happens with it.
