We had two projects during Google Summer of Code 2017. Check out the GSoC 2017 summary post for a summary of what each student accomplished.
Support multi-touch gestures
- Student: Prashant Kumar
- Mentor: Cătălin Răceanu
The goal of this project is to generate wxWidgets events for the multi-touch gestures recognized by the underlying system and, possibly, also the raw touches which compose them. But it’s adding support for the high level events, such as “zoom”, “pan” or “rotate” which is the most important part of this project. Modern desktop systems all support sending such events but do it in different ways, so the first part of this project will be to find a subset of events and information carried by them sufficiently rich to be useful, yet also supported by more than one, and ideally by all three, major platforms.
