1. Interacting with a Google Spreadsheet using libferris and plasma. Depending on what Web Service you have mounted, you can control who has access to the data you "paste" into the plasmoid. This makes something like a mounted spreadsheet cell become a "pastebin" where only people you trust can read what you have pasted.

  3. Tracking aggregates for information in a PostgreSQL database using libferris and plasma. Because libferris can mount postgresql, and there is now a KDE4 plasma DataEngine for libferris you can easily track these statistics on your desktop

  5. This is the libferris file manager, it is called ego.

    Although the interface looks quite simple, there
    are context menus associated with most things.

    There are also a vast number of sidepanels for searching,
    filtering, bookmarks and editing metadata and tags.

    Today I'm talking about sorting.

    Of course, you can click a column to sort by it, and
    click again to reverse the sort.

    You can also set that sort order to be the default for
    this directory, or the entire filesystem tree rooted
    at this directory. Subdirectories will inherit settings
    for a tree but can explicitly override them too.

    You can also override what ordering you want for each
    column, like using the version sort of ls for any column.

    If you sort on something with many files having the same
    value, you can append another column to the sort order.
    For example, sorting by image width, then by file name
    for files that have the same width.

    You can sort by any number of columns. This is built
    into libferris, so you can sort on many metadata fields
    with ferrisls or any libferris client.
