GSoC Week 6 - Qt3D based backend for KStars
In the seventh week of GSoC, I worked on adding all existing init and update calls to skymapcompsite and subsequent classes derived from skycomponent. This completes the integration with the KStars backend.
What’s done this week
Init calls for skycomponent derived classes which help setup the Qt3D scenegraph
Update calls which adjust shader uniforms an enable update and mouse events.
- Integration issues with the original SkyPainter API written to support multiple backends. The CustomWindow class doesn’t utilize SkyPainter but has similar draw calls.
My priorities for the next week include.
Completing all the update calls
Debugging and adding other sky objects.
