Network & Communications (Part 2 of 2)

Developer: kesrut
Category: Network & Communications
Beginner: Yes
Platform: Harmattan

Application Description:

My app is named ServerMonitor. This summer I started to learn C++ and Qt. It’s my first Qt App. App uses SSH protocol (I’m using libssh2 library) to connect to server and get some information (like uptime/memory usage/loads). It’s tiny app. Not very advanced. It might have bugs or crash. It was hard to develop without real device.

* I learn how to use Qt, QML and C++. App’s most logic done in C++. So for me it was hard understand how to connect QML and C++.
* App uses aegis to store password securely. I had to debug to make aegis work properly.
* Learn how to work with memory management. My app might have memory leaks.
* Many people love Qt. But I found for me my Qt app crashes more than iPhone version. Maybe practice makes everything.
* I started to do my app in summer beginning. I participated on #harmattan channel using heymaster nick. Helpful people helped on app development. Without them i won’t writing these words now.
* I posted whole code on github. It’s my first opensource project.

Download Instructions:

SMS Scheduler
Developer: opax
Category: Network & Communications
Beginner: No
Platform: Harmattan

Application Description:

It’s a simple sms scheduler.
Type a message, choose a contact, chose a date to send the message and it’s ok!
I tried to build an app as similar as possible to the default sms writer.
I ve coded everything but I admit I took some inspiration on Qt examples.

Download Instructions:
You can get the deb here:

to launch the daemon : /opt/sms_scheduler/bin/scheduled
to launch the ui : /opt/sms_scheduler/bin/scheduleui

Usually if you launch the ui and the daemon is not started, it will start automatically.
Be carefull the daemon may take a long to start.

Actually there is no support page, as it is still not released, but here are some ’tricks’ :
To get the completion while typing a contact you should push ’Enter’.
A long press on scheduled messages on the main page opens a menu.

Application Description:

syncgcontactgs is a command-line application to synchronize N9 contacts with the contacts from multiple gmail accounts.

Syncgcontacts also supports gmail contact groups (even though they are not mapped to phone contact groups, mostly because i find them not very practical), and allows moderately complex queries.

A typical command line invocation might look like this:
/opt/syncgcontacts/bin/syncgcontacts -a

This instructs syncgcontacts to copy into the phone the contacts from the account, and belonging to the groups "Home" AND "Friends", but neither to the groups "LosAngeles" nor to the group "Seattle", and to also copy into the phone the contacts from the gmail account, belonging to IBM,Apple and SanFrancisco groups, but not to the Microsoft group.

As far as i know, there is no other app to perform such type of synchronization on Harmattan (syncevolution, the only alternative to stock MfE contacts synchronization can only sync one account and no group filtering)

I started developing syncgcontacts from scratch, and it has been published around the middle of August, already attracting some interest from those people that, like me, like to have their phone contacts separated in different accounts, or, at least, in different groups.
