So… here we go.
Resources on making sharing plug-ins are scarce, but i finally found this:
Looks promising, but there are still some hurdles.
Having followed the previous recommendation of starting with this i found myself not being able to have code run in my uploader class. And since that is not needed in that particular project, perhaps starting from the example yields better results.
I have put up a copy of the example here https://github.com/attah/harbour-seaprint-share-plugin and will try to use this to document my journey to a working plug-in, so that others can use it as a reference. But i need help.
First off i spotted a syntax issue in the .pro file and will be fixing that shortly, but after that i still have issues with
lrelease error: Cannot open translations/example_share_plugin-fi.ts: No such file or directory
And obviously that file exists… so i’m currently at a loss. Any ideas?
Once that is sorted i definitely count on there being more issues, so i’m hoping for the gracious help of this community. For more active discussions i can be found on #sailfishos on freenode IRC. I’ll summarize as needed here when things get sorted.
