CUnit on ARM platforms.

Let's use this stuff :P Anyway, it's a good tool and I need to put some ideas anywhere.

So, today's tip is how to compile your CUnit tests on Embedded platforms - in this case, on a N900 (ARM) with MeeGo installed on it.

You should download the CUnit source code from http://sourceforge.net/projects/cunit/ (I only tested versions 2.0.X and 2.1.X). The process is very simple: download the code, copy to your development environment, and build it (./bootstrap && make). However, things are not soooo easy as it seems :P

Probably, you'll face problems at initial steps.

If you have any problems on , execute the following command to change modification time/time:


find /path/to/files -exec touch {} \;



It seems to work.

IDE Integration 2nd edition is comming soon, including new PluThon Eclipse product. It comes with new and interesting features, such as ltrace integration. However, we know that Maemo community has a lot of valuable feedback and ideas that certainly improves PluThon and any other IDE Integration components (ESbox, PC Connectivity, etc.)

Please, visit PluThon 2nd edition web site, check how features you´d see implemented on PluThon and provide a feedback to eclipse-integration AT maemo DOT org. Your comments are welcomed!

Pluthon - how to easily create debian packages

Hi,

IDE Integration Beta 2 has been released, including Pluthon Beta 2 release :)

Since PluThon uses Internet Tablet environment as programming environment, most of programming tasks (except coding) are performed on your device. Then, launching/debugging are done directly on Internet Tablet.

Generally, we use distutils utilities for pymaemo to generate Debian packages on device. On this method, you need to create a setup.py script and insert a lot of information regarding to your project. You may face some problem during your first experience on debian package creation or even you may forget to insert some important information. Once your setup.py is properly created, you need to generate your debian package using pymaemo python interpreter.

PluThon also helps you to create Debian package from your project with distutils for maemo utilities. With helpfull graphical wizards, you can create Debian packages from your projects at a glance ;) For more information about this interesting feature, you can check it at PluThon User´s Help.

Try PluThon and give us your feedback!!

ESbox Beta 1 release comes with a very interesting feature: graphical installers for Scratchbox 1, Scratchbox (1 and 2) targets and Nokia binaries (which are mandatory for Fremantle, for example). ESbox also flashes your Internet Tablet with latest image.

For more information about these features, you can visit Forum Nokia Blog page.

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
