Asus releases application kit for Eee PC coders
SDK to boost Xandros app list
Asus has posted a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the Eee PC, the better to help coders write new programs to run on the elfin laptop's Xandros Linux distribution.
The SDK centres on a development environment called Eclipse, and includes TrollTech's Qt for interface design. Asus is also supplying VMWare-compatible code to allow software authors to create a virtual Eee on a more powerful machine, and develop and test code there before deploying it on the sub-notebook itself.
Eee PC and friend: sun, sand and syntax errors
Interestingly, the SDK's guide documentation refers not only to the Eee but also to the EP20, Asus' compact, Linux-running desktop widely seen as the anticipated desktop Eee, also known as the E-DT.
The SDK supports coding in the C and C++ languages, and the bundled guide takes novice coders through designing dialogs, writing code to underpin then and creating an icon to go with it. There's a reference for key API routines, and advice on packaging the completed app up for distribution.
The SDK is availble from SourceForge website.
I find it offensive..
... to read any article anyway connected with the Eee and NOT have the obligatory 'friend'.
By the way, syntax errors are fine. I/O errors are not. Don't play offside.
Nah, We Need A Fresh Bimbo
I say Miley, before she becomes Britney...
Maybe we can recruit Paris as the eeePC mascot.
Gods know, it's simple enough for her to use & fit into her bag, and it's something that's actually cheaper than she is...
That looks positive for the future of the eee.
If there's a new Xandros SDK then presumably there will be Xandros in the new bigger one, and maybe even the desktop version...
Could be attractive for other PC vendors too
here she is w/o the airbrush
