TimeManager for QGIS 2.0

As I’m sure you have already heard, QGIS 2.0 will come with a new Python API including many improvements and a generally more pythonic way of doing things. But of course that comes with a price: Old plugins (pre 2.0) won’t work anymore unless they are updated to the new version. Therefore all plugin developers are encouraged to take the time and update their plugins. An overview of changes and howto for updates is available on the QGIS wiki.

TimeManager for QGIS 2.0 will be available from day 1 of the new release. I’ve tested the usual work flows but don’t hesitate to let me know if you find any problems. The whole update process took two to three hours … sooo many signals to update … but all in all, it was far less painful than expected, thanks to everyone who contributed to the wiki update instructions!

    I am trying to set the format of the table using a .csvt file to “date(YYYY-MM-DD)” as specified. After I join the table to my shapefile the column attributes are Strings. I have tried using only “Date”, “date”, “DATE”, “date(%Y-%M-%D)”…among others, and none give me a date type in the properties>Fields>Type location. Could you please specify what the .csvt file and table column headers need to look like for daily time step data?
    Thank you!

    • Don’t worry! QGIS up to 2.0 didn’t recognize columns of datetime type. String works fine! I haven’t even updated TimeManager to work with datetime yet. There is a feature request on the TimeManager Github page.

    Hi, it looks good, but it seems, that it doesn’t work with WMS-TIME. Is it right?
    Is WMS-Time on the todo list ???

    • That’s right. I haven’t worked with WMS-TIME yet and therefore it is not implemented. Can you point me to a test server? I’m certainly interested in the possibilities.
