  Here < http://www.flickr.com/photos/address@hidden/115366281/ >is a screen capture of firefox using the templates I've developed and what I have so far for kohaBar (consider it a pre-alpha if you will).
   I'm planning on removing the "issues today" stuff from the templates and putting the branch name in there if possible. For the kohaBar, I'm hoping to make it vary malliable (sp?) so that it can be costomized to look good with whatever templates a library is using, and allow the librarians to choose what stats to display and such.
   As I said before, right now it just reads a server-side generated xml file, but after I get it stable, I might replace that with a SOAP interface.
   Also, any suggestions for more kohabar features? Any statistics that your librarians would like to be able to view in realtime?

   I'm new to the koha-devel list. I work with Cindy at the CCFLS. I had a few items that josh thought I might want to put out there for everyone. We've been working hard on getting our county ready for a transfer over to koha, and I've written a few things that *might* be useful to other koha users. Probably the most useful is a new template theme. It uses a tabs and side-tabs interface that I think is quite intuitive for new users. It's nearly out of what I would consider beta and just needs a few more tweaks.
  Other than that, I've been transfering our data from our existing ILS using php scripts for the data processing. I'm a huge fan of OO development and have created a number of data-access objects for manipulating the koha database. I'll probably end up rewriting them in perl when 3.0 comes out, as all the objects for working with the marc tables will be useless, and I'll need to be able to use the perl library to access zebra. Also, I've written a few custom reports in php for the county. I don't know how useful they might be for others, but we'll put them out there anyway (once I set up a bit of web space to post them on).
   Probably the most interesting project (to me) is a firefox extension that adds a toolbar for displaying koha statistics, among other things. I wrote a little perl script that generates an xml file containing stats for each branch in the koha database and the extension pulls it from the server and displays them in the toolbar. I'll probably add koha search functionality to it as well. I'm a bit stymied in my project though, because I can't get the extension to save user preferences (ie. the server's address and the libraries branchcode). If anyone on the list has any experience with firefox extensions, help would be much appriciated.
  Thats all I've got for now.
