because i don't see a future for big gui-toolkits like qt, gtk or similar on a embedded device i am about writing a phone app on top of DirectFB. i have some expiriences of that with a greenphone but that device is (compared to the neo) really, really closed.

before i choosed DirectFB i checked several other aproaches (like evas, the base garphics lib of enlightenment, which i dropped due to poor documentation).

with the neo i start porting all the libs i need which are

  • DirectFB
  • Sqlite3
  • Python 2.5 (including ctypes, sqlite)

and depending libraries not included with the neo/openmoko.

another interest of mine is to find the right (hopefully single) scripting language. i played around with python and lua. looking into the web javascript jumps in, don't know if this would be a solution, especially because a browser must support that anyway today.

i very much like openmoko's aproach of clean separation (into daemons like gsmd) which allows me to deinstall and replace all gui stuff. so thanks alot to the neo1973 and the openmoko team!

i am interested in porting Openmoko to the greenphone (just to have another hardware platform around for development and testing). i urgently looking for people interested in this also.
