Hi, a request to enable nemomobile lipstick with interfaces to gain access to certain events generated within lipstick (and currently restircted to be usable in jolla lipstick only). These events could be used by developers then to have finer and cleaner integration of their apps with the UI (QuickBar as an example over all fits this perfectly), as well as optimize the app to the device.

It would be great to have these interfaces available through the nemomobile lipstick QML plugin, as the API is there already, but for some reason is not available to 3rd party devs.

In particular:

  • pull menus status change events
    • pull started / ended / in progress etc
  • event view status
    • Lipstick.compositor.eventsActive status variable
    • onEventsActiveChanged event

I haven't read those parts of lipstick source yet, but are you sure pull menus are implemented at the compositor level? (Since it would make more sense to implement them at the Silica/qtquick components level)

So it seems to be - the snippes listed here are from the qml of jolla-home.
