GPE - Development

Development

GPE is a X Window System based GUI, utilizing GTK+ for interfaces and Matchbox for window management. The project provides an infrastructure for easy and powerful application development by providing core software such as shared libraries, database schemas, and building on available technology including SQLite, D-BUS, GStreamer and several more common standards defined by freedesktop.org.

One of the major goals of the GPE project is to encourage people to work on free software for mobile devices and to experiment with new technologies.

Some of the applications already developed for GPE include:

  • GPE-Contacts - A contacts manager
  • GPE-Calendar - The calendar application
  • GPE-Edit - A simple text editor
  • GPE-Filemanager - A file manager with MIME type and remote access support
  • GPE-Gallery - Small and easy to use image viewer
  • GPE-Games - A small collection of tiny games
  • GPE-Mini-Browser - A CSS and Javascript compatible compact web browser
  • GPE-Sketchbook - Create notes and sketches
  • GPE-Soundbite - A voice memo tool
  • GPE-ToDo - A task list manager
  • GPE-Timesheet - Track time spend on tasks
  • Starling - A GStreamer based audio player
  • VLC - A media player

GPE's PIM applications (GPE-Contacts, GPE-Calendar, GPE-ToDo) can be synchronized with their desktop and web counterparts (such as Novell Evolution, Mozilla Sunbird and Google Calendar) through the use of GPE-Syncd and the OpenSync framework.

GPE also contains a number of GUI utilities for configuring 802.11 Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, IrDA, Firewall, ALSA, Package Management, among others.

A mobile push e-mail client based on the Tinymail framework is in development.

Famous quotes containing the word development:

    There are two things which cannot be attacked in front: ignorance and narrow-mindedness. They can only be shaken by the simple development of the contrary qualities. They will not bear discussion.
    John Emerich Edward Dalberg, 1st Baron Acton (1834–1902)

    As a final instance of the force of limitations in the development of concentration, I must mention that beautiful creature, Helen Keller, whom I have known for these many years. I am filled with wonder of her knowledge, acquired because shut out from all distraction. If I could have been deaf, dumb, and blind I also might have arrived at something.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Information about child development enhances parents’ capacity to respond appropriately to their children. Informed parents are better equipped to problem-solve, more confident of their decisions, and more likely to respond sensitively to their children’s developmental needs.
    L. P. Wandersman (20th century)
