Re: Developing and Testing panel applets

Actually, it is better to code applets as shlibs - it saves some user
memory. But sometimes it is more trick to debug - because applets can
interfere in the same address space. Also, you have to be more nice (and
conduct more accurately) on setup/cleanup. I found a lot of problems
moving my applet from standalone app to shlib. But it was worth all
these trouble - my code looks a bit better now I think. The only problem
(which I already asked here - but noone replied) - you cannot easily
switch between standalone and shlib build variants. I could not even
parametrize this in This is a bit annoying...
