I wanted to create an interface in Python that had a row of icons at the top. Depending on the screen being displayed, I wanted one of those icons to be highlighted or a different color than the others. 

This proved to be more challenging than I expected.  You can set the color of all of the icons, but setting the color of a single one is a different story.

The solution that I came up with was to create a function that sets the target icon color when the program loads, rather than trying to do it as part of a KivyMD attribute of the TopAppBar widget.

  def set_icon_color(self, dt):
        screen_1_icon = self.screen_1.ids.menu_app_bar.ids.right_actions.children
        #Tell the method where to find the homescreen icon

        screen_1_icon[0].theme_icon_color = "Custom"
        screen_1_icon[0].text_color = "00ADB5"
        #define what the icon should look like

        screen_2_icon = self.screen_2.ids.menu_app_bar.ids.right_actions.children

        screen_2_icon[1].theme_icon_color = "Custom"
        screen_2_icon[1].text_color = "00ADB5"

        screen_2_icon = self.screen_3.ids.menu_app_bar.ids.right_actions.children

        screen_3_icon[2].theme_icon_color = "Custom"
        screen_3_icon[2].text_color = "00ADB5" 


We call this function on program load.  This sets the color of the target individual icon on each screen, without affecting the others.   When I switch to any given screen, the appropriate icon is already highlighted with a distinct color.

The other thing I had

Once upon a time, things were simple.  If you wanted to retrieve a page using the Confluence Java API, you simply called getPage().    Fetching Spaces was similarly easy, and intuitive.

Those days are over.  The methods are deprecated. Instead, we now need to use SpaceService and ContentService to manage spaces and content, respectively.  Let’s take a look at some examples of how a task would have been accomplished with the PageManager and SpaceManager, and compare that to how those tasks would be accomplished today.

This the code required to return all page content for all spaces, using PageManager and Spacemanager:
 import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.SpaceManager

def spaceManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpaceManager)
def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)

def spaces = spaceManager.getAllSpaces()

spaces.each { space ->
    def pagesInSpace = pageManager.getPages(space, true)
    pagesInSpace.each { page ->


Here’s the same code, using the SpaceService and ContentService classes:

 import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.Expansions
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.content.ContentRepresentation
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.content.ContentBody
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.content.Content
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.content.Space
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.Expansion
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.pagination.PageResponse
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.content.SpaceService
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.content.ContentService
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.content.ContentType
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.ScriptRunnerImpl
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.model.pagination.SimplePageRequest

def contentService = ScriptRunnerImpl.getPluginComponent(ContentService)
def spaceService = ScriptRunnerImpl.getPluginComponent(SpaceService)
SimplePageRequest pageRequest = new SimplePageRequest(0, 10)
PageResponse < Space > spaceResults = spaceService.find(new Expansion('name')).fetchMany(new SimplePageRequest(0, 10))
List < Space >
