Since it is hidden you might need a special application like FileBox to get it if you don't like to use xterm.


I've decided to share with you all a Whatsapp client I've been coding for a while now.

You just need Qt and Qt-Mobility (I guess all N900 already have this installed but just in case)

THIS IS NOT NECESSARY IF YOU ARE INSTALLING YAPPARI FROM THE REPOSITORIES
Code:

apt-get install libqt4-core libqt4-dbus
apt-get install libqtm-systeminfo libqtm-messaging

The preferred method of upgrading is via Application Manager

Before installing the deb file double check the download was successful:
Code:

$ md5sum yappari_1.1.46_armel.deb
adbd35e2f67c89b9c24226f36c174439  yappari_1.1.46_armel.deb

Here's the deb file: http://www.sendspace.com/file/egkblp

Mirror: http://uppit.com/evjgd2sqj0cw/yappari_1.1.46_armel.deb

You can load the client and after it logs in you can close it and it'll run forever in background (you can see it in the status area running). To quit the application select Quit in the menu. If Yappari can't find a connection it waits silently until you have one so you can really "set and forget". Yappari will never force you to connect to the Internet, but it will always connect to the servers if you have a connection.

Yappari is event based so if your client is idle then it does absolutely nothing (no threads, no while(1) loops, etc). This is to maximize battery.

The first time you run the application you have to type your phone number and country code. Don't type any leading zeroes in those.

I think it's pretty usable.

We can continue the development depending on the feedback (that is depending on YOU).

To upload it to the repos the software need to be Open Source (since the source code will be exposed) and so far I'm not sure it's a good idea, at least until I can release a decent version. As I said in the first post, this is pretty alpha.

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp client for the N900 ONLY
 
u mind telling us what is needed to use this client?
One simply has to install the deb and dependencies or is there anything additional needed?
Like java etc?

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp client for the N900 ONLY
 
@sifo, are you a current user of the Java Whatsapp port? This release is only for people that have been using the Java port successfully.

@imo, you need to be a current user of the Java Whatsapp port. I don't think you need the dependencies there should be already installed on the phone, I put it there just in case.

Yappari is a native application (90% Qt, 10% GLIB) so you shouldn't need anything else.

First, thank you for so great job ;)

You said it doesn't support synchronization but that it add contacts in international format. So... I'm confused. I don't want to sync my phonebook because I don't want to give all my phonebook to Whatsapp Inc. Am I safe? Will you implement an option to not sync? It is a must for me.

Could it be used from PC like peterbjornx's Java port? Edit: Ops, just read that it's native for N900, so I suposse that running on PC is not possible now.

I registered with a false IMEI, and I would prefer to mantain that, but maybe I will try your program (if I could change IMEI from peterbjornx's port).
