The opentemplate client is an addon that will work as a downloader and browser of the recent cliparts, extensions and templates of the site. The user will be able to get the latest templates from OT (OpenTemplates) and even filter the retrieval to just get a specific category.

This addon will be able to connect to the API and retrieve the data, parse it and store into a listbox. Once the user decide what he want's it will submit the URI and retrieve the content (using cURL). The add-on itself will provide with filters on combolist so that the retrieval can be filtered out before hand.

The main challenge are:

  • the ideal widget would be a grid application as opposed to listbox.
  • Retrieving an image might be challenging.
  • Good OS detection and path manipulation (localization).
