To get myself accustomed to PySide UI development using Qt Quick (aka QML) and to check out what works already and what does not, I’ve experimented with creating some common elements that I’d use in an application (i.e. a QML version of gPodder – a blingy demo already exists) and decided to share my experiences and results as tutorials.
Here are all the tutorials in their current state:
- Selectable list of Python objects in QML
- Multi-selection lists in Python with QML
- Defining and using constants from PySide in QML
- Using QtWebKit and QML with PySide
- Updating QML content from Python threads
- Utilizing Qt Quick Colibri in PySide
- Filling and reading QML UI forms from Python
- Auto-generating QObject from template in PySide
- Using QtMobility sensors and QML from PySide

I’d like to get some feedback on whether or not the tutorials worked for you and were helpful and what else you would like to see. You can try out all the examples on your N900 today! Just install
python-qtmobility (for the last example) from Extras-Devel and copy the examples from the Wiki. The usual disclaimers for software in Extras-Devel apply.
In related news, there will be a PySide/QML workshop at the December meeting of the Python User Group Austria, so if you happen to be in or around Vienna on Sunday, 2010-12-12, stop by at the Metalab and meet fellow Pythonistas.
