So after some talk with the Software Center team I took matters into hand into making some of the ideas reality.
This time we wanted to make the "Recommended Applications" as seen in the following mock-up reality.
But how do we determine the recommendations... (Zeitgeist):
- Software Center asks Zeitgeist for most used mime-types within the last 30 days limited to 1000 events.
- Software Center looks for uninstalled applications that can handle these mime-types.
- Take first 3 results of the applications lists for each mime-type and set as recommendation (This has to be done more intelligently)
This now looks like
There are instructions on OMG!Ubuntu! how to get the branch...
Here is a little video of it in action
Lets hope the S-C and Design team are happy with this integration so I can clean it up and propose it for merging.
