GSoC 2018 - Second month status
I am working on the GSoC project Verifying signatures of pdf files and since the last blog post I have made number of improvements. They are listed below.
1. Signature Properties Dialog
This is an improved version with better layout and messages.
2. Signature Panel
This is a sidebar widget in okular which will list all digital signatures present in a document. In future, I plan to add a context menu to allow verifying a single signature as well as all signatures at once and viewing the signed revision.
3. Revision Viewer
This is a dialog similar to print preview dialog but instead of previewing what is about to be printed it loads the data covered by a signature in a read-only KPart. In its current state this dialog is pdf specific. This is problematic since okular is a universal document viewer. So I plan to make it a bit more generic.
4. API changes
Things I dropped
It turned out to be a mishmash of signature panel and revision viewer. So I dropped it.
Signature Summary Dialog
Initially I liked the idea but now I don’t.
Finally, the animation below sums up my progress.
Thanks for reading :)
