Hi,

Maemo Eclipse Integration 2nd Edition Beta 1 was just released, including Maemo SDK Virtual Image :)

On a recent post on Forum Nokia blog, I described about how Maemo SDK VM can help you to properly configure your Maemo programming environment, specially on those cases that you have to configure a lot of machines for a Maemo programming workshop, for example.

In addition, if you want to customize your Maemo SDK VM for a specific case (for example, distribute an old Maemo SDK release), you can check here the requirements list we've considered to provide Maemo SDK VM version 0.10.

Embedded Lab has launched the 2nd edition of Effort Competition (website on portuguese), an interesting challenge for undergraduate and graduate students. The main objective is to make that students explore Nokia mobile platforms (maemo, S60, ...) to generate interesting and innovative projects.

The winners will receive Nokia 7310 Supernova devices as prize :) Unfortunately, Effort Competition 2nd edition subscriptions are over, but keep on eye on it - 3rd edition is coming!

Hi,

are you looking for an IDE to help you on maemo programming? Or a tool that helps you to get connected with device using different communication interfaces of Internet Tablet (Bluetooth, WLAN or USB)?

IDE Integration project provides a full feature environment with IDEs, programming environments and conectivity tools. Therefore, you can start maemo development a lot quicker (and much easier :).

Take a look at this post on Forum Nokia Blog page.

Mica Framework

Maybe, you've already heard about ESbox and PluThon IDEs for maemo development. They have a lot of things in common: remote launching/debugging, Debian package generation/installation, and much more. But why two different products? Because ESbox needs Scratchbox, but PluThon does not.

That's right... I got it. But since ESbox and PluThon have some features in common, why don't we create a common framework? And so we did :)

Mica (Maemo Integration Common Architecture) framework does not only provide a common architecture for ESbox and PluThon, but also a common plugin architecture for developing maemo development environments based on Eclipse.

If you're planning to create a plugin for Eclipse framework in order to help other maemo developers, you can use Mica. On its official site, you can access useful documentation such as architecture and developer's guide. If you need any other example, you can check Mica-Plugins project. For example, a plugin that finds the Internet Tablets available.

You, as Mica/ESbox/PluThon user/developer, can contribute a lot with such projects! Please, report your suggestions, doubts and any other comments to eclipse-integration at maemo dot org.

ESbox/PluThon 2.0.0M1 Released!

Since the lastest release of ESbox/PluThon (on July 2008), IDE integration team haven't released any other version of the projects (ESbox, PluThon and PC Connectivity). Then, since July 2008, we have been planning, designing and developing the newest 2nd Edition of IDE Integration.

ESbox/PluThon 2.0.0M1 have been released today, including new functionalities and a huge, interesting and well-done refactoring of architecture. Now, both ESbox and PluThon share a common framework, which was designed also to be used as developing maemo development environments based on Eclipse.

Besides ESbox and PluThon, IDE Integration also consists of PC connectivity (http://garage.maemo.org/projects/pc-connectivity) and maemo SDK virtual image (http://garage.maemo.org/projects/maemovmware).

One interesting feature of this first alpha release is support the integration with RSE Eclipse project, which provides heterogeneous remote resources through a concept of pluggable subsystems.

More than 2 months since my last post in this blog!! But we're back!

To start this new "season", I introduce to you Forum Nokia (http://forum.nokia.com). It consists of a consistent and complete site for Nokia developers. There, you can find information, documentation, tools and SDKs to start developing applications for Symbian, WRT, Python S60, maemo and all the others Nokia platforms.

In addition, Forum Nokia often launches competitions in order to call developers to participate by writing interesting articles, testing new APIs and providing inovative solutions based on Nokia platforms. Winners receive interesting prices ($$ and new devices!) and also they become known contributtors on Symbian, Python S60, Web, WRT and maemo communities :)

The Week of Mobility on Curitiba was the most interesting experience we had so far: a very nice group, with students that were looking for new features on maemo platform every time. The results were also amazing!! Translators, media players, applications that synchronizes Internet Tablet and desktop contents, games, OCR... are just some examples of applications developed by maemo students during the last days of workshop. Thanks a lot for Myriam, Anelise and Keiko. For more information (including photos and videos), visit http://semanadamobilidade.blogspot.com

Week of Mobility is up and running!! Our new destination is Curitiba, a nice city in South of Brazil. I´m very anxious about this event: we´ll certainly produce great results, such as interesting applications! As on previous editions, the Week of Mobility on Curitiba consists of talks about maemo platform, embedded Linux and Python for S60. There´re also trainings on maemo and Python for S60. The students will have access to Nokia N800 Internet Tablet to test their applications, that are developed during the training. If you´re interested in it and would like more information about it, visit http://semanadamobilidade.blogspot.com .

ESbox: almost there

We are just performing some minor changes in ESbox for finally releasing version 1.4, which is working quite fine. I got realized how a tool such ESbox helps the programmer a lot just some days ago. On maemo workshops promoted by INdT, I could see how much newbies on maemo platform suffered for running a simple "Hello World" application even in Python.

In fact, the problem is not just how to compile the application, but also how to install, configure and use a command-line-based programming environment. It is important to provide good development tool to support a certain open source technology, otherwise its community will not grow up considerably - ESbox comes to solve such problem. For more information about it, visit http://esbox.garage.maemo.org/.





Thanks a lot Ed Swartz and Ling Wang for such great job and also the valuable lessons about Eclipse plug-in development.
