Some time ago I wrote how you can build and run QML applications on N900, but since that I haven’t done anything related to QML, until now. I’m not the only one at the moment who is trying to study how QML works and how you can deploy it in your application. I have always learned [...]

This article has been in my mind quite a long time already, but now I finally had time to test MADDE and write something about it. MADDE stands for Maemo Application and Debugging Environment. Before going any further, I want to say that this is not a MADDE tutorial, this is about the MADDE and [...]

Now I have digested an idea of MeeGo for few days, I decided to take a look at it little closer and write a small article about it. The reason for writing this article is to self educate myself and trying to solve what MeeGo really is. Note that this is not a review of [...]

Probably many of the readers of this blog have noticed that Nokia released a preview of UI Extensions for MObile aka Uiemo this week. In my opinion this is very interesting because Nokia has been developing two, very large, expensive UI frameworks and both of them are built on top of Qt. The development has [...]

Qt Labs is the place where you can follow the direction of the Qt development. Of course it’s worth to follow the Qt Roadmap also. If you are interested in about what’s happening in Qt world, it is definitely worth to follow the Labs (in my opinion). One of the most interesting projects at the moment [...]

Now that Qt is hot and QGraphicsView is even hotter, I’m quite surprised that Trolls haven’t provided a good common component for kinetic panning. There are some existing demo codes like this FlickCharm in dojo examples, but the problem in FlickCharm is that it doesn’t work with QGraphicsWidgets. Please correct me, if I’m wrong. QML [...]

Couple days ago I found QtFlickr API written by Evgeni Gordejev. You can check it out from http://www.qtflickr.com. As the name QtFlickr implies, it’s a Qt API for using Flickr API. It provides a simple interface for request creation, response handling and photo uploading. It’s a very small layer, only 5  classes and two structs. Like [...]

It seems that the trend with the modern mobile UI platforms will be based on some kind of web techniques (html, css, javascript) in the future. Even now there are good examples of such an environments like Palm WebOs. Web OS kind of environment for running UI will usually requires some processing power from the device [...]

This article of Maemo 6 Service Framework continues the series of “A Peek to Maemo 6 UI Framework” articles. There are older articles parts I, II, and III if you haven’t read them yet. The Maemo 6 UI Framework is quite large (almost 100 000 lines of c++ code) therefore I want to introduce larger [...]

MoRpHeUz commented my previous post and mentioned that there is ongoing work in Qt Kinetic for animated layouts. They try to release that stuff with Qt 4.7 or 4.8. Check the video above how the animated layout stuff [...]

My last article of Maemo 6 UI Framework was about the layouts and how they work and are designed. In that article, I criticized a bit the implementation because in  my opinion they could have used QStateMachine and Qt Animation Framework combination to make the design simpler. One of my principles is that if I [...]
