pyxfce still used or maintained?

I'm not sure, where to ask, so I try it here.

Hello, I would be very interested in pyxfce.

Is it still used. It seems, the content of the website is not so new
anymore.

What could be done with pyxfce?

For example: In windows I had a taskbar icon, which pops up
a list of alle available desktop icons and have quick access to them.
(instead of clicking on "show desktop an fiddle with the mouse).

I asked already that in: http://forum.xfce.org/index.php?topic=4920.0

It would be cool to have such a item in xfce.

Could such a solution accomplishe in pyxfce?
pyxfce looks very interesting and I wonder, why there is not made more things (ready addons) and
the development apparantly stopped.

thank you in advance!

Hm, seem not to be so.  :-(

I like the idea very much, and have an idea, what to build with it...

pyxfce is indeed not really maintained... lack of time and different priorities is the usual problem

I got it partially to run with 4.6. Maybe I will try to play around. What I want to do (i dont know, it its possible). I have already posted it before. In Windows, there is a tray icon, which opend directly in a list the desktop entries and sort the alphabetically. With one click, one can start an app.

So you don't have to make the desktop visible (with show destkop odr ctrl-alt-d before) and fiddle with the mouse.

Re: pyxfce still used or maintained?

I began to try to implement my "idea".
Where can I get some support in developing a plugin.

Actually two "problems".
Here a mini plugin:

import pygtk
pygtk.require("2.0")
import gtk
              
from xfce4.panel import *


class MyPlugin(Plugin):
    def __init__(self):
        Plugin.__init__(self)
        
        button1 = gtk.Button("-")
        button1.show()
        self.add(button1)
    
        self.add_action_widget(button1)
        
        mi = gtk.MenuItem("Hlo1")
        
        self.menu_insert_item(mi)

import sys

plugin = MyPlugin()

plugin.connect("destroy", lambda x: gtk.main_quit())

plugin.show()

gtk.main()
sys.exit(0)

With the right button, I see the text hlo1.
1) how can i get a list of items pop up, when I press the left mouse button?
2) How can I "activate" that item?

thank you in advance.
