Here’s the deal. I am currently using a QNX-based Blackberry Playbook which sports a crippled Python 3.1 installed on the device but obviously not meant for public consumption (hence crippled). My idea/hope would be to add some functionality to this crippled Python to enable the possibility to do some “on board” scripting. Scripting on an external machine (i.e. coding on a PC and transferring the script as an app has already been made possible by third-party developers and to this end PySide has been ported to the Blackberry Playbook), but personally I would love to be able to do some actual coding on the device itself. To achieve this goal I think I’d primarily need two things: a GUI toolkit (as there is none present at the moment, apart from the aforementioned port of PySide) and a compatible IDE. But (and that’s quite a big but), this shouldn’t involve too much actual porting of dll’s/so’s, as I am a mere intermediate Python programmer, who so far successfully avoided getting involved in C++. Not knowing enough C++ porting something would seem way too daunting a task. Anyone here with an idea how to proceed? Maybe an easily portable IDE based on PySide?
Thanks in advance for your reply!
