Patch: No Home Carousel

Your rating: None Average: 5 (8 votes)

Work in Progress. Do NOT use if a partnerspace is enabled!
Based on SailfishOS

Disables the carousel on the homescreen by removing the left side of the events-view and the right side of the switcher-view. This allows swipe right to remove notifications in events and swipe left to close an app cover in switcher.

- Fix swiping app notification groups

Future plans:
- Go to last app on left edge swipe in events and right edge swipe in switcher
- Investigate swipable cover actions
- Maybe separate switcher and events completely
- Find new location for partnerspaces

(Any ideas how to get a partnerspace app for testing?)

Hmm, I do not have facebook, so I cannot test it. Does this happen with other apps, too? Are the notifications removable via the x button?

can't say about othe apps - I'll add my Twitter account later to test it - the notifications are still removable by the X button - maybe it helps you to know that other patches lik 'always show group deletion' also don't work for Facebook notifications

Wonderful patch !

Only one thing bother me for the drag-left action on cover : Why don't you use the classic closing image ?

(Just add "||" at the end of line #461 in SwitcherItem.qml)

Good idea. Looks much better now :)

Brilliant patch man - keep on 

As you seem to be UI talented - if you could make it happen that the first 4 app icons are appearing by single tap even when there are open covers?

Yes! Check out the patch: Switcher click hints Launcher.

great patch i really like it. but it conflicts with patch from nodevel (pulldown cover action) wich is really useful, since there is not cover swipe anymore. Can you make your patch compatible with that? or at least enable old style cover swipe?? would be perfect. Are you a new sfos dev? congrats, however. For partner space app maybe you can try toontv apps installed with angry bird toh!

I will look into the compatibility issue with pulldown covers, but not sure wether it will work. No promises though.

In the long run, I plan to have some kind of cover action swipes in this patch. Just need to think of a nice way to integrate them. Maybe on swipe left, pull up/down for the cover actions and further left for closing.

Do you know where to get the toontv app without the toh?
