Our daily lives are becoming more gadget-assisted every day and (as we approach to the “internet of things”) we have more and more computers around us in the shape of TVs, smartphones, cameras, media centers…
We dream in a future where our fridges will be able to automatically do the sopping for us, that is, a future where all our devices are connected and interact with each other. Something is going wrong if we still use the email to send a picture from our phone to our PC…
And precisely this is the reason behind KDE Connect: we want to make your computer aware and seamless integrated with all your devices, to simplify your daily tasks.
We have started with Android integration, but we want to support any kind of device so we encourage other platforms developers to implement the KDE Connect protocol for their devices!
If you want to peek into the code you can grab if from these repos, but please note that it is in a very early stage:
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/albertvaka/kdeconnect-kded
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/albertvaka/kdeconnect-android
For battery reporting to work you will also need to apply this patch to kdelibs: solid-backend.patch
You will need Android 4.1 or greater. If you are not an Android developer, download the compiled app directly form this link: KdeConnect.apk
We hope you like this project! Looking forward to hear your feedback :)
