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.
