Wendy alpha relase


Our current simple-alpha-version of Wendy is available for download!. Wendy is a simple SDL application used to prototype our Pervasive Widgets (AKA Hermits).

You can download the source code from here. You will need the SDL, SDL_image and SDL_ttf development packages to compile it..

Here is the README for this version 0.1. It has been tried (not really tested) on x86 linux (Ubuntu), BeagleBoard, OMAP Zoom2 and Openmoko Freerunner :)

HERMITs: Detecting user activity

Wendy widget desktop running on OMAP Zoom2In our first demonstration introducing our Pervasive Widgets (the HERMITs), we just used the events on our SDL application (Wendy) to detect the user activity. However that is not very convenient if we want to use proper widgets in our devices, so we need to look for a more transparent way to detect user activity.

This article has already been moved to the our new blog. Please update any link to this post as it will be removed in the future. This post is available clicking the link below:

As we are running an X-server the XScreensaver extensions are a good option for that. What we want is to be able to detect when there is some user activity, but we do not want to get events every time user press a key or touch the screen... we want them only if that didn't happen for a while

Pervasive Widgets. Introducing the HERMITs

About HermitNow that the first decade of XXI century is about to finish, it is time to introduce a revolutionary concept to develop during the next one.
