LXQt: Introducing Intents

Intents are a way for applications to declaratively describe their capabilities and let other applications invoke it. Sounds simple? It's still not possible today.

LXQt is introducing intents. Inspired by Android's intents, they solve several long-standing issues on the desktop. Best of all, they are being developed as an open spec, so that other DEs can use them.

Intents are the declaration of standardized D-Bus interfaces to a type of application. A demo of their various capabilities will be performed. This talk will also introduce the audience to the related improvements being made to application declaration, invocation, interaction, and integration.
