Last weekend I’ve been toying around with Open GL ES 2.0 on the N950 after finding a nice Xlib-based Python example on the web for the N900. I modified the code a bit, replaced the Xlib code with a QGLWidget from QtOpenGL (via PySide), which makes the setup a lot easier and (apart from API differences of GL ES 2.0 and Desktop GL) allows me to test the prototype on my normal computer as well
I keep hearing about how great QML is to learn so I’m a bit baffled as to why I am still having such a hard time with getting more than a toy program written.
Front Page Future of Nokia's PySide project for Python & Qt PySide was a Nokia-led project to produce a more liberally licenced set of Python Qt bindings (compared with PyQt).
Three weeks ago, the N9 was announced . Little can be added to what’s been written : it’s a great achievement, but also a bitter one .
It’s been over two months since I’ve released a new stable release of gPodder . Now it’s time again to catch up with some of the fixes that have landed in the “master” branch of gPodder (while we are still adding cool stuff to the “tres” branch, where the QML UI and other improvements happen).
I’ve been lucky to be among the sponsored participants for the MeeGo Conference 2011 in San Francisco this week (thanks to the Linux Foundation ). As with the last events, it’s always nice to meet up with fellow Maemo community members whom I already knew from previous summits/conferences and also to finally meet some new community members in person for the first time. Intel loaned out ExoPC hardware running MeeGo Tablet UX for MeeGo development during the AppUp Event on the Warm-Up weekend.
If you want to try the MeeGo N900 Developer Edition for the N900 but think that clicking through the Widgets Gallery gets boring after 45 minutes, why not try out the QML UI of gPodder on it? It’s pretty easy. This post assumes that you are using the alpha release of the N900 Developer Edition from a microSD card and boot via USB
Tomorrow I go to the Meego Summit FI in Tampere. I will talk there about Tracker, as usual, but this time sharing happily the stage with Adrien Bustany . The plan is to talk about what Tracker does NOW in a very pragmatical way, explain the limits we have hit, and give a hint on the more or less experimental ideas we have for the future
While the 2.x branch of gPodder is still updated – a new release should be out soon – the awesome stuff happens in the “tres” branch, where the refactoring takes place and also where the QML UI is built. I’ve reserved some time this weekend to work a bit on the QML UI so that it is at least day-to-day usable for me, because it turns out if I don’t force myself to use the QML UI, I’ll just use the Maemo 5 UI and not work on the QML UI I’ve uploaded two new videos today: gPodder/QML on the N900 and gPodder/QML on a Desktop
