Cool Update... GUI toolkit for Iliad

Hi All,

BREAKTHROUGH: this is really really REALLY cool!!!

I finally (after a long search, lots of downloads, lots of compile attempts) found a gui toolkit for the Iliad: UIP. It has the following properties:
  • Simple to learn
  • Lean and mean: 2 .so library files, total 0.6 MB. That's inclusive the binding for Lua. It is small because it uses the gtk libraries on the Iliad
  • Scriptable: program in Lua (if you want, C/C++ is possible), no need to compile.
  • Cross platform: you can use it to build apps for Linux / Windows, and run the same code on your Iliad

I've managed to port it to the Iliad. I'll make a decent package for it later, but I am so happy now that I wanted to let you know! I can feel the karma already ;-)

Have a look here to see what this is all about...
I think that this toolkit (in combination with Lua and Antartica's xepdmgr) boost the development of small smart apps for the Iliad.

Have fun!
