Back in November I gave a quick presentation to the Perth Django/Python Users Group.
It covered a brief history of Python on mobile devices (Maemo/MeeGo/Nemo/Sailfish), and an example Python/Qt application which has a custom UI for each platform.
The slides can be downloaded here:
Mobile Snakes (November 2013)
I’ve been playing round with developing native UIs for different mobile platforms using QML.
I’ve quite a fan of ‘common-base, separate UI’ development, and QML provides a great way to implement it.
Code is available on github.
Fremantle (Maemo 5)
Harmattan (Maemo 6 / MeeGo)
I’m pleased to announce that “Perth Trains” has been ported to Sailfish OS, using Silica QML components.
The app provides a simple way to view ‘live’ departure times of train services across Perth. Versions for MeeGo Harmattan and Maemo 5 are also available.
I’m very much looking forward to tomorrow’s announcement from Jolla as to what the N9’s successor might look like!
