Off Topic forum / Cool Clamshell Design - Far Cooler Than The Z

Why do they keep churning out dictionaries in such cool form factors, while the UMPC's  make such atrocious designs ?

Sharp with its Zaurus based dictionaries and now iRiver with this  - damn Asia - they get the goodies and we get monstrosities like the Samsung Q1 or Flipbook or whatever.

Python / Train Schedule Viewer For Nokia Phones
« on: March 21, 2007, 03:21:34 pm »
Just designed a Python based Nokia S60 application for Nokia Phones (2nd gen models) that acts as a companion tool to the eZCommute for Zaurus that I had written long back

(see eZCommute for Zaurus)

Instead of taking out your Zaurus, starting it up, clicking on the application icon and waiting for it to start (remember python apps on Zaurus are a little slow to start), I thoght why not have a similar app right here on my phone to look up the same schedules file that resides on the Zaurus as well ?

Some more details about it

eZCommute Companion Application
eZCommute-Mobile - for Nokia phones with S60 platform with Python installed

This is a view only (not able to create or edit schedules) application for a fast view of train/bus schedules on your phone.
Must faster and convenient than taking out your Zaurus, starting and wating for the application to start (remember, python apps on Zaurus are a little slower to start) while your train zips by on the platform (often happens to me, as announcements systems on New York area are horrendous).

You can create and edit the schedules on the Zaurus and then manually copy over the "up" and "dn" schedule files to the Nokia phone.
The Data files have to be copied under the "data" directory of the parent "eZCommute" directory wherever the eZCommute application was installed on the phone memory.
In the future will design a bluetooth Sync application to sync your timetables between the Zaurus and the Nokia phone (for phones supporting Bluetooth)

Requirement for the phone

Install the compatible (and possibly latest 1.3 version) of python for your model of the S60 phone.
See website  -
for details on which version is for your version of the S60 device.

Just copy over the .SIS file to your phone (via IrDA or Bluetooth) and then install the application to your phone memory.
Note : It  still does not work flawlessly when installed to internal memory (MMC Card).

And finally heres the zip file containing the notes on how to create a flat text file of schedules and the .SIS installable fiel for Nokia phones (I used a Nokia 6600 to test, so please test on your version and feedback would be appreciated)

Python / Python For Google Calendar
« on: March 08, 2007, 11:15:28 am »
Hi there is a a python module for interfacting with the Google Calendar API

So now comes the interesting part - anyone interested in making a sync application between Google Calendar and KoPI Calendar on the Zaurus ?

I would have been, but frankly not able to spend time, so no commitments.
Moreover I am not particularly aware of the KoPi formats used (XML i believe).

How about inetrest in other Mashup ideas with Google Calendar  for the Zaurus ?

Just a thought ...

Python / No More Interest In Python For Zaurus ?
« on: March 06, 2007, 05:35:19 pm »
Is Python for the Zaurus dying as a good development language ? I don't see any questions (or answers to questions) or any new interest in this Python thread any more. Not to mention the lack of any new apps as well.

Just wanted to give all you Python-istas a nudge and a 'bump'.

Now raise your hands all you linux geeks - who wants a Linux based DAP now ?

And this is from the same CES show where all the nice goodies abound, and here comes this monstrosity

Damn sad to see this trendline... I wish there's a new release to nudge up the trendline some more towards the up direction again.

Software / Flickr Viewer For The Zaurus
« on: April 25, 2006, 07:32:06 am »
A small app that might be useful to some.
A great way to see the interesting photos by others on Flickr as well as view own albums.

Python / Flickr Viewer For The Zaurus
« on: April 19, 2006, 03:25:21 pm »
Just to increase the score for python and Python apps for the Zaurus...

Here's a little app I designed as a Flickr Viewer for the Zaurus.
Its still a work in progress, so be patient with features.

Allows to view photo groups, photos for any users.
Able to view by Flickr NSID or by Username.
I haven't implemented the Flickr Authentication API method yet (since that requires a browser login, and I wanted a self-contained app).

Also able to view photos by "Interestingness" in Flickr.
Able to store photos to local disk for offline viewing (no photo titles or tags in offline mode). Can delete local photos to clear up memory space.

Future Plans
Plan to implement searching by photo Tags, most Popular Tags.
Search by email ID etc later on. Ability to change settings etc.
Also implement Authenication so as to allow read/write access to user Flickr account.
That would include upload photos to Flickr from Zaurus.

Python (tested with Kopsis Python) on the Zaurus.

Software / Online Photo Viewer
« on: April 15, 2006, 02:56:19 pm »
What does the general Zaurus crowd use to view online photos ?
Mainly the browser - Opera or Netfront ?

I understand that if the Zaurus itself can store and show photos (as slideshows etc), then why use an online viewer... but again that is limited to one's own photos - how about viewing general photos ?

What are the popular photo viewing sites that people generally use ?

Now that many photo sites (like smugmug) have a RSS feed of photo links searcheable by Tags, I was thinking of designing some online photo viewer - better suited to view photos by Tags etc rather than from the browser - with options like local storage etc.

Python / Qwidgetstack
« on: March 20, 2006, 01:24:00 pm »
I am using the QWidgetStack to create a sideBar element in my program which can change on context - a context sensitive changing sideBar menu element.

So I am adding widgets into the WidgetStack and them calling the widgetStack control in the main screen. On the desktop - this method works fine and I can raiseWidgets as needed to the front.

But on the Zaurus, the whole widgetStack control doesnt show up at all.
There are no errors when using QWidgetStack on Qt/E, but nothing shows at all.

What is heppening here ?Is the QWidgetStack implementation the same in QT/E as in QT.

Code sample as below
class controlWidgets(QWidgetStack) :
    def __init__(self,parent = None,name = None):

        if name == None:

        self.widgetMain = controls(self)        # control is the main widget class
        self.widgetLocal = controlLocal(self) #controlLocal is a local widget

in the main section I call controlWidgets as below
self.sideBar = controlWidgets(self)

I have read on other threads that the QWidgetStack on QT/E has a bug - is this the reason for the non-visibility of the WidgetStack control on the Zaurus ?

Nokia Tablet / Python For The 770 ?
« on: February 01, 2006, 10:40:45 am »
Anyone know if Python is supported on the Nokia 770 as yet ?

Also is GTK+ used as the Widget set for graphical apps ? Since GNOME seems to be the standard GUI on 770...

Also I saw the info about the GMAIL threads... what about using the mail reader (POP mail I guess) to access Gmail on the 770 ?
