I am using the plugin Timemanager which works really great but there is one thing I'd like to improve.
Instead of displaying the date and time on each frame, I would like to display a timeline stretching from *date_start* to *date_end* which shows the current frame time within this timespan.
I understand this possibility is not (yet?) offered by the plugin and therefore I am looking for an amazing idea on how to implement this. A core Qgis functionality that could be a workaround? An already existing plugin that I have missed? A small python script?
Obviously, in order for this to work nicely with the timemanager plugin, this timeline should be displayed in the map canvas, not in the composer.
A solution for Qgis 2.0 would be nice but I could also live with something for 1.8.
If someone has an idea or (even better) has already implemented something similar, please raise your hand!
