Tichy update

I did a video of tichy, my python applets manager, running on openmoko :

video

Once again the code for tichy can be retrieved from the subversion repository with this command :
svn checkout svn://svn.projects.openmoko.org/svnroot/tichy

It works fine on a desktop computer too. Parts of the program are in C, but I always provide python versions as well, so you don't need to compile anything to test it.

It is also very easy to extend tichy by adding new plugins

[Edit]: I put a copy of the video on youtube.

Introducing tichy

The last few weeks I have been working on a python applets manager for OpenMoko cell phone.

The idea is to be able to very easily develop applications in python. Each application can define a set of services and request for a given services. So if for example I write a text editor, other applications that need a text text editor will be able to use it, even if they don't know about this particular text editor.

The code can be downloaded from the subversion server :

svn checkout svn://svn.projects.openmoko.org/svnroot/tichy

It can work directly on a desktop computer, or on the open moko (See the README file for more informations)

It uses Mickey freesmartphone Framework

Here are some screen shots :
