This topic is to exchange information about Python on Mer/Nemo. From developer's and user's point of view.

Python modules and softwares available on Mer/Nemo

The Sailfish/Python Development wiki page has almost all the Python packages also compatible with Mer/Nemo.

From gitweb.merproject.org/gitweb and list of last Mer packages, we have on Mer :
- Python 2.7.5;
- modules boost-python, dbus-python, libuser-python, libxml2-python, pacrunner-python, pygobject2, pygpgme, python-M2Crypto, python-cairo, python-contextkit, python-deltarpm, python-devel, python-iniparse, python-libs, python-lcms, python-lxml, python-magic, python-markdown, python-pycurl, python-pygments, python-setuptools, python-solv, python-test, python-tools, python-urlgrabber, python-yaml, rpm-python.

From Nemo devel MW and MartinK Nemo repository :
- pygtk2, python-imaging, python-magic, python-numeric, pyOpenSSL, python-pyside, python-pyside-shiboken, python-qtmobility, python-twisted, python-zope-interface;
MartinK confirmed that python-pyside for Qt 4.8 on Mer/Nemo is working well, as well as PyGTK. So many Python with GUI softwares from Maemo 5 & MeeGo Harmattan can be ported to Mer/Nemo.
Softwares developed in Python with GUI (in Qt Quick/QML) :
- ModRana : flexible GPS navigation system (there is also a Gtk version).

From Khertan MeeGo repository (all work on Nemo, but not all are packaged to Mer/Nemo) :
- pyflakes, pylint, pypackager, python-autopep8, python-beautifulsoup, python-egenix-mxdatetime, python-jinja2, python-markupsafe, python-nose, python-pep8, python-sdist-maemo.
Softwares developed in Python with GUI (in Qt Quick/QML) :
- BitPurse : Blockchain.info Bitcoin wallet client;
- KhtNotes : note taking application;
- KhtSimpleText : plain/programming text editor.

From RColistete Mer repository :
- ipython 2.2.0 (complete with Notebook and text interfaces), depending on python-pyzmq (and its depency zeromq), python-tornado, python-jinja2, python-markupsafe;
- python-sympy 0.7.5;
- python-numpy 1.9.0 (without Fortran, BLAS and LAPACK);
- python-matplotlib 1.4.0 (with Agg and WebAgg backends) and the dependencies python-pyparsing, python-pytz, python-dateutil, python-six, python-tornado;
- python-uncertainties 2.4.6.

For comparison, here are the lists of Python Harmattan modules and of Python Maemo 5 packages.

Python wish-list for Mer/Nemo

I would like to see :
- python-pygame (with many dependencies);
- python-numpy (Python & C/C++, complete with Fortran, BLAS e LAPACK);
- cython (Python & C/C++).

Some of them I hope to package to Mer / Nemo / etc, but if anyone has already made it or plan to, please tell here in this topic.

Python packaging

It is nice to package pure Python softwares with simpler (than Mer SDK) packaging tools, like PyPackager (for Maemo & MeeGo Harmattan). Khertan confirmed PyPackager creates source with spec file needed by COBS to package rpm for Mer and Nemo.
Also MartinK cited modRana packaging scripts which can adapted to other softwares to be sent to COBS.

I'd like to see boost-python. And before somebody shouts "you are free to port it" at me, I'm just saying what I'd like. I do not need it for something and if I do I will well consider porting it.

If though someone else is considering porting it, maybe it's good to know if there's other people who could find that useful.

It is already available, I've forgotten to list it. I've fixed the above list.

PyPackager is already available and can produce source package with spec file to be use witn COBS to produce rpm package for mer and Nemo mobile. And PySide is already available

Yep, Pyside is present in the official Nemo repositories & there are already programs using it (from me & Khertan, maybe also from others ?).

BTW, this is the Nemo library repository. It is basically an overlay over the Mer repositories, so you don't see the Python modules that are part of Mer.

I can confirm that the PyGTK is really actually working just fine. The pyside-mobility package depends on how well QtMobility is implemented, so for example location is not yet working correctly (it caused a segfault last time I tried to use location ), but other functionality, such as screen blanking control seems to work fine.

My modRana packaging scripts already support the generating Nemo specfiles for COBS (the support is based on modified code from Khertans amazing PyPackager ).

Someone may pack and add this http://pypi.python.org/pypi/accountsSSO/0.0.7 to the list if account and signon libs are also included on mer

Thanks Khertan. About your MeeGo COBS, which softwares are ok for Mer/Nemo ? I'm a little confused to know whether softwares are for MeeGo Harmattan or also Mer/Nemo.

UPDATE : Khertan answered by twitter, his MeeGo softwares also work on Mer/Nemo (but not all are packaged to Nemo). So I will also cite his softwares in the 1st post.

Also note that Meego COBS is slowly moving to Mer COBS.

Good point ! How far is it by the way ? Will it work the same as the MeeGo COBS (just register, build a bunch of packages, get repositories for them & submit to Mer/Nemo/other project when ready) ?

Thanks. I've cited ModRana in 1st post, and some softwares from Khertan, as examples of Python softwares with GUI (usually in QML).
