Executive summary Tired as hell but with my hacking batteries completelly full. Organization There was always something to do here and there, which I needed to help with, but I think the most important things that I did were: Organizing the Lightning Talks session, I guess you all remember the sound of the sea and […]

Wow, something I think I would not see, but GUADEC is happening less than 3km from home in less than a week! I have collaborated in organizing the Lightning Talks and BoFs/Hackfests and of course, I’ll help wherever I can. Poor Zeenix will be at my place so he will need to wake up early […]

Aura made me Qt Ambassador

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

As I already said the other day in Twitter, I became Qt Ambassador because of Aura. The only problem is that is a project-person program, meaning that it is granted to a person because of having worked on a project. Aura was a project developed by three Igalians, who were Miguel, Víctor and me and […]

In the context of a personal ad-hoc app (I will come to that later) that I wrote for my Nokia N9, I needed to send an email to a specific person with an attachment. After the first research at Harmattan APIs you come to QMessageService. The first thing I did was writing Mixed QML/Qt object […]

As part of my work at Igalia I had to work with video and GStreamer for some years. I always used Gtk+ for that so when I needed to do things with Qt and QML, things were different. In my projects I always used pure GStreamer code instead of the Qt bindings for GStreamer because […]

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

As part of my work at Igalia I am writing an app to record some videos for the Nokia N9. I wanted to get them shown in the gallery so I tried the DBUS approach, that is something similar to what is explained here. The problem is the same they faced, meaning that I got […]

Mixed QML/C++ objects reloaded

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Some days ago I was writing about how to have mixed QML/C++ objects in a QML application for Igalia, but I faced a problem with the code that I had written. And the problem was that I needed to receive some events and from the QML elements I was loading. Retaking that code: #define QML_PATH […]

Mixed QML/C++ objects

Friday, February 24th, 2012

One of the good things of QML is that you can have both C++ and QML code and interact between them. For example, from C++, you can access the QML tree and invoke methods, change properties, etc. The other way around, you can also define C++ objects and interact with them from QML. Here you […]
