Writing a "Hello World" Python plugin for Hildon Desktop

March 22, 2007

As I told you before, Hildon Desktop now has a new plugin system and one of the cool things about it is the Python support. Just for the sake of demonstration, I recorded a screencast with the step by step process of writing a “Hello World” Python plugin for the Home area of Hildon Desktop.

Yes, it’s really simple. Of course, this is a useless plugin but I just wanted to demonstrate how easy and simple is to have the basic infrastruture done.


Update 1: the GIF image is too heavy and people are having problems to watch the screencast. I’ll upload a new (and better) file tomorrow as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience. :-/

Update 2: I removed the link to the screencast for now just to avoid other people to have the same problem and complain about the same thing.

Update 3 The link is updated with a new/more-complete version of the screencast.
