Desktop widgets with Qt & QML

Writing desktop widgets for N900 using Qt is now possible, as Harald Fernengel explained yesterday in Qt Labs.

What I wanted to test based on this is that can desktop widgets be made also using QML? So I hacked together a Clock widget and with the similar technique also slightly modified Samegame widget:

Source code for the simple clock is available in my Gitorious branch so everyone can test and start to build cool Qt QML widgets in no time!

WoW, simple & awesome :)

Henrik Hartz said...

Nice!!! I guess you didn't read, but thank you anyway :)

Valério: Thanks!

Henrik: It's you (and rest of the Qt/Nokia) who make these things so easy and fun. We are just waiting for a fixed maemo declarative package including latest Qt 4.7 changes and then release more QML stuff, this time something a bit nicer... I don't really do twitter, blogs and planets are more for me so next time you have some request please blog about it or just email me directly! ;-P
